look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Ordered this "wit" looking for something refreshing on a warmer August night. Knowing nothing of the beer itself, I was surprised to find it black as a Guiness, with a thin head. It started the expectation of the beer to be malty right off the bat.

S - Citrusy, inviting, and light smell. Nothing strong, but indeed a strong contradiction from the expectation given off by the color.

T - Average quality of taste to witbeers, fairly mild citrus with higher than expected hoppiness.

M - Fairly thin, but enough hops and citrus to keep it enjoyable til the end.

Overall - A solid, but not outstanding flavor, however the experience of the black color with the light citrusy taste make it a memorable drinking experience. Well done to Flying Dog to deliver something new and inventive.
