BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coronado Brewing Company
California, United States
coronadobrewing.com

Style: Belgian Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This So-Cal take on a traditional witbier honors Coronado’s main street, which is home to our brewpub and was once lined with orange trees. Bolstered by orange zest, coriander and orange blossom honey, it’s Belgium by way of Coronado. Expect a refreshing, light-bodied brew rife with citrus zing and a hint of earthy spice.

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

L: brilliant gold under a 1/2" foam cap with fair to poor retention

S: moderate to moderately low levels of orange, coriander, wheat and honey

T: Wheat, honey and spice lead the flavors with a very mild sweetness.

F: The body is medium light and the carbonation is medium.

O: lacks the Belgian yeast character, the light tartness on the finish and the smoothness and light creaminess of a Belgian wit

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.
