This So-Cal take on a traditional witbier honors Coronadoís main street, which is home to our brewpub and was once lined with orange trees. Bolstered by orange zest, coriander and orange blossom honey, itís Belgium by way of Coronado. Expect a refreshing, light-bodied brew rife with citrus zing and a hint of earthy spice.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thin to moderate sized white head on top. The aroma is bright and floral with orange, melon, apricot, and bubblegum. This tastes like juicy fruit gum with orange peel added. Itís a bit of an odd brew. It has a sweet velvety nectar thing going on, almost to the point of being cloying, with light spice. Itís not nearly as spicy as I expected though. Without a lot of spice or stronger complimentary flavors, the orange blossom is a bit overbearing; although Iím not going to say this is a bad beer. Itís definitely not a thin or watery Wit and is easy drinking enough. Just not entirely my thing.

12 ozer. Been in my cellar for years. Nice light wit type pour with a very thin head. There is a nice taste of honey and cinnamon with a very syrupy palate. Nice.

Pour a cloudy straw color with white head. Aromas of orange peel, corriander and wheat. Moderately sweet and citrusy. Lots of orange peel and corriander. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. A decent witbier.

a very nice, albeit thin, wit. i prefer fine unfiltered, but this had a nice mild spicy bang to it all the same, thanks to the honey and orange. very re-drinkable. its what Shock Top SHOULD have tasted like.

Bomber pours fully opaque deep gold with brown-ish hues and white head. The aroma is sugary wheat, sweetened orange zest and cotton candy. The taste is pretty full with flavor giving up wheat notes and then becoming a bit tart from lemon like acidity for a moment or two. Then toward midway it becomes more banana, orange zest and cotton candy like.

Pours light yellow with notes of spice (Coriander and White Peppper). Citrus notes of Orange zest and lemon finish off through the palate. Drinks very light.

Sampled on tap at 1702; March 2011
The beer arrives with a frothy, pale head that has a creamy texture to it. The beer is a lightly hazed, gold color. The nose smells of orange zest, a sort of musty malt character, an earthy base spiciness (coriander) and perhaps even a touch of soapy character.

The soap-like note is in the flavor just a bit as well. This has a light tartness to it up front, which in combination with the orange zest contribution reminds me of watered down orange-juice. There is an earthy spiciness to the finish that seems contributed from coriander. The orange flavor is more washed out than it was in the aroma (where it was quite bright). This is light bodied and refreshing, and it is not so thin as to be watery.

My glass of this beer disappears really fast, but it really wasnít all that memorable. This is not the most complex Wit, but it is easy

Aroma is tight. Appearance is cloudy but dull. Taste is subtle all around. Mouth feel is pretty thin.

A nice wit....nothing special. Aroma was decent. Nice wheatiness with hints of pilsner malt. Pour was a nice light gold with plenty of rising bubbles and a nice puffy one finger white head. Taste was nice also. A little watery, but with strong carbonation. Light on the spiciness and just a hint of orange peel in the aftertaste. Lightly citrus flavor comes in and out. Decent beer
