COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last you’ll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.

Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of grainy malt, with spicy and floral notes. Sweet honey flavour with oranges, and a cardboard touch in the finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2009
bottle from superdave 9/27/09 and reaffirmed later... hazy yellow-ochre with a huge off white head. faint aroma... really faint, actually... skunky grassy hops, pale malt and mild orange blossom/floral sweetness. the flavor is fairly similarly faint and not very orange-like... honey, stale pale grain, grassy hops and some spice. oddly, i get some alcohol vapor sting in the nostrils. light to medium bodied with a bit of a chalky texture. not a strong showing. 5/3/5/3/11/2.7

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - OCT 28, 2009
On tap, LA Beerfest. Faint aroma of wheat, grain, and tangerine essence. Body needs a bit more flavor. The orange is there, but it is thin and perhaps a bit of a cover for a rather simple wheat beer.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a mostly clear medium yellow with a small bubbly white head. Nose of citrus peel and some grain, not a whole lot going on with the flavor, similar to the nose.
Earlier Rating: 11/17/2008 Total Score: 3.1
On tap @ Hamilton’s Tavern. Pours a light straw yellow, with a small white head. Nose was lightly wheaty and slightly fruity. Not sure why this is in the ’’Fruit Beer’’ category.

bhensonb (12044) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Bottle from South Bay Drug. Pours a hazy orange gold. Aroma of orange zest. Not quite medium body; carbonation is fritzy. Flavor is wheat combined with orange, spice, and arguably honey. It’s slightly sweet, but the citrus and spice tend to balance it. It’s rather strong in flavor. Definitely makes a statement. It was a bit messy at first, but with time the orange clarifies as the main tone.

Bottle from South Bay Drug. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is sort of citrus. Body is less than medium, and carbonation is moderate. Flavor is rather orange, along with something like pale malt. Citrus develops more strongly into the finish. It’s an ok beer, but not one I would go to great effort to obtain.
