Coronado makes it to MA which means more 12oz bottles for me to review.
A- Poured into a tumbler with a hazy, yeast clouded golden light orange body. A small white cap forms that has a fizzy, somewhat creamy texture. Head retention is decent as the foam dies down to a small ring fairly quickly. Several patches of lace and a few small rings.
S- Not a whole lot of strength here, I find myself searching for the aroma in a style that usually smacks you in the face. Moderate amounts of citrus and orange peel come to mind with a bit of yeast spiciness beyond that.
T- Spiciness comes to life here as it didn't really hit me that much in the aroma. White peppercorn, coriander and even a bit of cardamom hit the palate with the aforementioned orange citrus zest feel. Rustic wheat bread, medium sweetness, herbal qualities, honey and earthiness all come to mind beyond the spice and citrus.
MF- Light bodied with a crisp, high-end carbonation; refreshing feel. Texture is fizzy with a slight silky creaminess. It all finishes off with a zesty bitterness lingering on the palate.
Something about the whole experience feels thin to me. The flavor doesn't round it to be all that satisfying to me and is a bit underwhelming. The added spices also throw the balance a little too far in that direction. Has that flavored soda feel for some reason.

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

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.
