Blood Simple

Chase away the winter blahs with a sunshiny taste of California oranges and Peruvian cacao beans! Blood Simple is a chocolate-orange riff on the classic citrus-and-spice character of a Belgian-style witbier. It is brewed with organic blood orange juice, organic orange peel, and organic cacao.

Cacao Blood Orange Witbier
5.3 % • Wild Oat

History & Style:

Like many Belgian styles, the roots of Witbier can be traced to the brewing traditions that originated in the monasteries of the Brussels area. The zesty citrus and spice character of the yeast is echoed by the blood orange juice and organic peel, and well complemented by the cacao.

Tasting Notes:

Blood Simple pours cloudy with a white foam. Aromas are of orange citrus and cacao, with flavour marked by spritzy, juicy orange. The body is light and lively, and cacao asserts itself nicely in the finish.

Food Pairings:

Duck a l’orange, chocolate mousse
