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 youíll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.

kflorence (93) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2008
On tap at the Coronado Brewing Company. Pours a cloudy amber orange color, served with orange slice (that is not needed). Tastes like wheat, yeast and some fruit flavors (mostly orange and spice), but also some hop presence. Aftertaste is a tangy hoppy flavor, almost bitter. Itís definitely drinkable and tastes pretty good, but I wouldnít go out of my way to get it.

Bottle, from the liquor store next to the brewpub. Nice light cloudy orange pour with some white head. Aroma is citrus, light spices. Flavor is the same, corn sweetness typical of the style; somewhat bitter spicy finish that lingers.

bhensonb (11979) - 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. Itís slightly sweet, but the citrus and spice tend to balance it. Itís 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. Itís an ok beer, but not one I would go to great effort to obtain.

Flavor: Taste is mostly sweet: orange, honey, and wheat
Palate: Light-medium body, lively carbonation, pretty fresh
Overall Impression: This is a lively and fresh feeling orange wheat ale. It isnít a great beer, but it works pretty well for what it is aiming for. Nice enough beer, but not a great beer.

Draft. A hazy golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey and oranges, leading to a dry wheaty finish, where the orange and honey note lingers for a long time.

Sample at 1808 Bistro. Pours a clear bright yellow-orange color with a medium thin and bubbly white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Light body with flavors of citrus, sweet yeast, wheat and malt. The finish is fruity with a sweet spiced aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
