A-Dark orange and lemon peel yellow with an off white foam.

S-Orange. Not much coming out of the glass on this one.

T-Orange and light citrus.

M-Nice creamy mouthfeel but the finish doesn't last very long.

O-It's fine I suppose. I preferred the rest of their beers. Just not too much going on with th

Spied this Orange Avenue Wit in the clearance bin at the local DM, and in true to myself fashion I had to both get it and make a silly pun referencing the name in the review: let's hope it's a full Wit and not a half Wit... yes I'm bad.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a nonic pint.

A: Looks the part, very Wit-like cloudy orange body and a frothy white 1cm head, neato.

S: Wrong, wrong, wrong. Don't know if this has been light-struck or if it's supposed to smell like this but there is a funky cross between coriander and coconut going on that is just plain off-setting. The aroma is more like women's coconut hand moisturiser from bodyshop than a beer.

T: Even worse is the flavour - I'm convinced this is a light-struck beer, no one would want a Wit that tastes like this; funky coriander, bitter orange, slight yeast sour note with a smattering of spices that jar (cardamom, five spice) this brew and make it taste neither refreshing or moreish.

M: Flat and mid to light bodied.

D: Not sure if I had damaged goods but I hope for the sake of the brewer it was. I have rated this accordingly and will ne'er touch this beer with a 10 foot barge pole... helps that I don't own a barge pole, or a barge for that matter.

Food match: Don't drink this beer unless you are eating food with ghost chillies and need cold liquid handy and this is the only thing that is available in a 50 mile vicinity.

Pours a half-finger head - pale gold (or dark straw) body.

Yeast driven driven aromas - with some old socks thrown in. Orange in the mix.

Taste is very yeast driven, some orange, wheat, bready malts.

Mouthfeel OK and crsip. Nicely carbonated.

All in all - one wonders why Dannos chose this beer to bring in to Aus? Not bad, but not not great.

A - Pours a cloudy orange colour with one finger of creamy white head and decent lacing.

S - Citrus, mouldy hay with some spice.

T - A subdued yeast flavour wraps around tastes of orange, wheat and coriander.

M - Moderate to high carbonation. Light body.

O - Fairly ho hum.

Pale gold color with a sudsy top, held short from an overpour. 3.5

Wheat malts, big coriander notes, sliced orange, and grassy hops. 4.0

Lovely hoppy pale whaet with big coriander and peppercorn notes. Very floral and spicy. Wheat malts flow beneath orange peel sweetness with some delightful smacks of tartness. Bitter finish. Great overall profile; imbalanced in the best possible way. 4.0

Velvety smooth with a fierce carb crunch. Biting on the palate, yet silky on the tongue. This wheat beer has unreal body. Kickass feel. 4.5

Coronado, with the slam dunk! Top 5 APW for me. Great summer brewski. 4.0

On tap at Sawmill Tap Room on 4/28/12.

A - pale gold; thin lacing of white head; good retention

S - citrusy, coriander, orange, lemon

T - yeast, lemon, straw

M - light bodied, smooth, little carbonation

This was a rather mediocre offering. The flavor was rather mild and simple. Ultimately, it's forgettable.

22oz. bomber. This one is actually labelled "Orange Avenue Wit" with an abv of 5.2%. Poured into a pint glass.

Frothy white head that collapses quickly. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow color with some spotty lacing. A bit lacking.

Some very mild orange aromas.

Opens sweet. Orange zest, sugar, and wheat beer flavors do come through. Sweet tarts without the tartness. Finish is filmy and spicy. Not much going on here. Clean though.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Watery and bubbly in the mouth and quenching going down. Mellow finish with a slightly lingering aftertaste. Pretty drinkable.

A decent beer though not one that really sets itself apart in any way. Worth trying, especially on a hot summer day.
