Desert Swarm is CVB’s take on Belgian Style Witbier referring to the beers cloudy appearance. Desert Swarm is brewed with Raw Unmalted wheat, imported Belgian malts, Oats, Punjab coriander, locally grown kumquats from Coachella, California and Killer Bee Honey from Lance Davis’ Killer Bee honey, www. killerbeeinc123.com. Paying homage to the style which was once almost extinct, Desert Swarm decants the color of apricots, with a foamy alabaster cap of Belgian lacing, that dissipates quickly releasing the fragrance of citrus and honeycomb. The creamy mouth-feel is contrasted by tart, lip-prickling fizz, carried with it nectar like sweetness which is cut by the kumquats, and just a hint of stomach-stoking warmth right in to the finish from the addition of Killer Bee Honey. Lance’s live bee removal company never uses any pesticides and all of the bees removed are collected live and moved to Lance’s hives outside of residential areas.

Brewed as a traditional Belgian style witbier, Optimal Wit is crisp and citrusy with layers of flavor that evolve in the glass. We brew this with Virginia grown wheat and use Spanish orange peels and coriander, which are traditional wit spices. Our unique twist is Grains of Paradise, which gives it a subtle peppery character on the finish.
