COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer that is unique to the San Joaquin Valley that it originates from. Brewed in the Old World tradition with a touch of New World pizzazz. Luna Blanca is brewed using 2-Row Barley, Malted White Wheat, Coriander Seed, Bitter and Sweet Orange Peel plus a special local herb for a unique and refreshing flavor. An authentic Belgian Witbier yeast is used for fermentation which also contributes a wonderful fruity and spicy flavor.

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a white head and a nice amount of bubbles. Aroma of hay, wheat and a bunch of dry coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Strong wheatie flavour with a lot of curacao and sweetness and a good dry character. Aftertaste is very nice with a cool, dry character showing a touch of sweetness on the finish. Overall, a nice wit with good characteristics and a surprising complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Draeger’s Blackhawk in Danville, California on 18-March-2011 sampled in Danville, California.

From a 22-oz bottle. Poured golden orange with a medium white head. Medium lacing. Nose shows a lot of coriander and wheat. Medium body. Flavor is complex for a wheat beer with a mixture of citrus---orange, lemon, grapefruit. Dry bitter finish.

MartinT (7760) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Expressive coriander and orange peel whip up a classic Witbier character while citrusy melodies increase an already refreshing flavour profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy golden.
-The intensity of the perfume is greater than your typical example of the style.
-The body is well sculpted and might be a tad chewier than the usual Witbier’s.
-Carbonation may be a bit softer as well.
