An interesting wit. Orange is in the nose. But there is also a strange baby aspiring smell as well. The appearance was a touch dark for a wit. More like a heffe. The taste is very good though. Mouthfeel is very lively. Overall, I like it more than most wits. The orange notes sweeten the taste a little and give it a tiny bit of fruityiness that makes the beer distinctive.

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.

Good beer that has a nice orange hint to it. It's subtle

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.

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.

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.
