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

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2011
sample at BJs. Looks clear pale yellow. White head, of course. Smells like pale wheaty fruit. Tastes crisp and easy to drink with a very pale malt layer with a decent hop background that compliments it well. Overall 6.5 of 10.

355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small head. Aroma is herby, coriander and sweet orange. Taste doesnt have much to start but lots of coriander and orange on the finish.

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours golden orange with some very tiny bubbles and any potential head disappears immediately. The nose has oranges and cream with a herby note cutting across it. The taste has more of the big creamy orange note and while there is much less evidence of the coriander this time, it does fall away nicely into the orange cream again. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture in the middle and the end falls away quite elegantly. Overall, it didnt start well, but it improved in every category thereafter. On the other hand, this is a style I find easy to enjoy, so perhaps not as discerning between the good and the great, but I enjoyed drinking it and wanted another.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured out of a tap into a pint glass. Color was golden orange and there was just a light film of head. Smelled a hint of orange and sweet but not that much after. I actually sucked some of the beer into my nostils looking for a smell. Tasted like oranges, specifically orange peels. Mild carbonation. Good after taste, though. Great for a summer beer.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
[Bottle] Lightly hazed yellowish hue, lively carbonation. Fairly clean, malty aroma. Malty, well carbonated palate, some mild orange sweetness towards the end. Disappointing, doesnt drink like a wit. More like a lager or blonde with faint orange flavor. Even more disappointing since Ive been impressed with Coronado of late.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty, and the flavour is yeasty and slightly orange peel like with a longish bitter finish. Overall a fairly average witbier.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2011
An interesting wit. Orange is in the nose. But there is also a strange baby aspiring smell as well. The appearance was a touch dark for a wit. More like a heffe. The taste is very good though. Mouthfeel is very lively. Overall, I like it more than most wits. The orange notes sweeten the taste a little and give it a tiny bit of fruityiness that makes the beer distinctive.

Pours a hazy yelloow with a minimal head, smells of honey, orange and coriander, flavors match the aroma, good beer in Florida heat.
