Notes taken from 04/06/14

A: Sunburst yellowish-orange with considerable wheat haze obscuring visibility across the body. Thin lip of fizzy white foam settles up quickly to a mere halo. Some very mellow lace and dots of stick noted.

S: Smells predominantly of wheat malt with that grainy husk like quality. There is a nice honeysuckle sweetness to the nose and some light orange zest coming through. Dash of spicy pepper there. Mostly wheat malt up in here though which is not all that appealing to me.

T: Tastes much the same with a heavy influence of grainy wheat malt and some modest dried orange peel. Has a light sourdough bread likeness to it with a touch of orange blossom honey. Dash of faint spice but not a very developed yeast character here. There is a moderately low amount of bitterness perceived and the alcohol is well disguised throughout. Slight herbal note in the back. All in all this comes off very bland and pedestrian with not much going on in flavor town.

M: Moderate filling from the bready malts but stays on the lighter side. Still seems heavier than most Wits. Even carb could be higher but gives a smooth consistency. Touch watered down with a light drying in the finish. Fairly clean end result.

D: I am a Coronado fan as most of the offerings that they put out are solid but this one is a big miss for me. I can appreciate the need for a nice refreshing light Belgian Wit in your lineup but at least make it something special. This is just plain drab. Shock Top says hello. (1,559 characters)

Pours a nice golden-orange color with a two-finger head that quickly fades. Looks pretty bubbly.
The aroma is primarily orange and coriander and a bit of white bread.
Tastes a bit like a sweetened orange juice with a hint of lingering orange pith bittering.
Mouthfeel is fairly thin and bubbly.
A decent summer beer. (316 characters)

This was interesting.

Pours similar to the Coronado Orange Ave, but a little lighter in color, when put to the light. This is a very similar brew. Both are pale body, light and citrus backed. Both have the orange taste lingering in the body, however... this one has a sweetness that the regular Orange Ave doesn't have. Which makes this slightly different to the palate.

This is a good representation of the Witbier. (418 characters)

Had at Margarita's in Branford on 8/1. Pours a little clearer than your typical wit, decent head though. Very light aroma here, spices barely detectable. Faint flavor of sweet citrus and a delicate malt background. Subdued. Light body makes it refreshing and easy to drink. Not really true to style but nothing offensive. An OK beer. (333 characters)

Pours a pale filtered wheat, bright fluffy white head. Aroma has orange peel hints of honey and spices with coriander and chammomile. Flavor semi sweet spicy flavor with honey and orange peel in the background of this witbier. Mouthfeel is dry semi sweet with a light to medium bodied spices really coat the palate, drinkable for sure especially in warmer weather. (364 characters)
