Poured from the bottle and loved this beer. As a Witbier style it was well executed with a fair amount of alcohol. Somewhat creamy notes of coriander and spice are tasted but most prevalent was the orange flavor. When drinking this beer with a friend we joked of it tasting like orange juice. And that's not a bad thing in my opinion. I don't recall the age of the beer but it was certainly delicious. Bold flavor paired with an excellent execution makes a very good beer. Highly recommended.

$1.99 for a 12oz bottle @ BevCo. Brewed with 2-row, wheat, cara, orange zest, orange blossom honey and coriander. Hopped with Northern Brewer and fermented with Cali Ale yeast.
19 IBU's and 5.20% ABV.

Pours out to a slightly hazy peach, with little flittering particulate. Thin layer of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Forms a soapy off white head with very good retention and solid sheets of lace. Carbonation is brisk, ~3.0 carbs. The nose is pungent with coriander and orange zest, and even though this is not the freshest bottle (probably about 3-4 months old), it still smells very fresh and delicious. A very clean ferment and just a hint of dust. An absolutely beautiful nose, one of the best I've ever had in a wit. The taste is wonderful...there is a bready malty crackery malt base with enough body to give it a smooth mouthfeel and still remain crisp and clean. Bitterness is perfectly balanced and doesn't interfere with the orange and coriander, but adds to it's drinkability. The finish is again, very crisp and clean. No off-flavors or aromas.

I think this is probably one of the very best Wit's I've had, and I've had a lot of them. This is a textbook perfect example of the style and I would be proud if I were to have brewed this. A delicious beer. Highly highly recommended. Exceptional.

Required outlier review: easy to drink but needs more orange

Tastes just like it sounds...orange wheat. For a local San Diego brew, you can't go wrong. It's crisp and refreshing with a definite orange flavour. Worth a try!

Anything Coronado is great. That's all that needs to be said here.
