3.38/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle into an Angel City Flute style glass
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.

3.85/5  rDev +11%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a short-lived head.

Smell: Lemon and wheat.

Taste: Crisp citrus and wheat, faint soybean-like yeast flavor, balanced herbal finish (lavender).

Mouthfeel: Crisp, thin, well carbonated

Overall: There are a lot of beers that are refreshing on a hot day. This does that, and also has some complexity in the taste.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Cloudy peach. Zero head. Spotty lacing.

S - Oranges and orange zest with a little wheat.

T - Oranges and zest, some wheat. Finishes quite nicely with a peppering of hops.

M - Medium/light

O - This is just begging to be a great wit. Perhaps it needs some lemon? Still a very pleasant brew. Would make a decent session.
