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

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
SD trip: Had some of this too; very boring wheat/wit, served with an orange (as it should be) which helped a little. It was drinkable, mostly since it had very little flavor.

Palme (4780) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2017
On tap @ The Gingerman. This is a near clear golden colored one. A small sidesticking bright white head on the top. Smells really soapy actually. A hint of Cointreau in the back. Really mild. Mild in the taste also. Creamy and really comfortable in the mouth. Thin and watery in the taste, unfortunately. Really thin taste vise. Traces of sugary malts, other than that this was a really blend and dull one. Quickly forgotten. 09.06.2015

alobar (3757) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours yellow orange color with aroma of orange, coriander, and honey. Orange honey flavor with some spice. Nice summer beer.

3.5
MarcoDL (4843) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2017
Draft at sloan. Aroma of wheat, grass and orange. Taste has soft sweet yeast, sweet orange, wheat and subtle tart. Nice beer and very nice on a warm Italian evening.

2.5
freekyp (2192) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours lightly hazy yellow with minimal tan head. Baby aspirin orange aroma and flavor. Light coriander in the background. Light and crisp, but the fruit is fake tasting here. Nit very good.

355ml can. Pours almost clear pale golden colour with a small white ring. Taste of zest, herbs, wheat. Taste of zest, lemon, wheat, yeast, very tasty!

3.5
nuplastikk (6216) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Tap at Sidedoor. Hazy translucent golden orange body. Thin oily head. I tend to like my Wits with more of an oaky, vanilla feel. This is a decent, clean, enjoyable example of a more spice forward example. The coriander might be the most dominant flavor, balanced by the smooth malt tones. The honey tones start coming through after a few sips. Well made but more of a spiced honey golden ale than a Wit.

On tap at Tap Room, Bangkok, shared with JMGreenUK. Thick creamy white head. Very hazy amber pour. Refreshing

3.2
HuskerTan (2168) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Can. A- Coriander, spice, wheat. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Strong coriander, pepper, spices, wheat. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- There was a day when I was head over heels for wits. That day has long passed but I can still appreciate them. At first I was under the assumption this was an orange forward wit reading the name. Had I paid more attention, I would’ve noticed it’s just the name and not orange forward. In fact, I didn’t get much orange peel at all. Pretty much a standard wit by all means. Not bad not great, just decent.

2.9
Zymurgeist2 (2179) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Not bad for what it is. Aroma and flavor are both predominately orange, with a cereal grain malt backing. Honey is more pronounced in the taste than the aroma. Moderately clear orange-gold with a full white head that falls quickly and leaves a collar of tiny bubbles. A bit of a harshness on the back half of the palate.
