Default What style beer is this???

My buddy and I set out for the homebrew store intending to make a Belgian witbier. We bought the right yeast and flavored the brew with orange peel and coriander. However, we were forced to use a darker wheat LME due to limited supply at the store and the beer has the color of a marzen.

So what should we call this beer style? Is it a dunkelwit? Does anyone know the Dutch word for dark???

LOL - I believe you have a "Donkerwit" on your hands.

Dark Wheat : Donkere Tarwe

Dark : Donker

Wit : Wit (Using German)

You may have created a new hybrid!!! Sound Good though.
