22oz. bomber poured into tulip glasses and shared with the wife, poured at 40F.

A - Very similar in appearance to lemon juice, same color and consistency. Slight carbonation, but no real head or ring develops. Meh...

S - Really fragrant. Strong sweet (natural) orange, mandarin orange IMO. Wheat, coriander and fresh grass in the background. Actually smells really appealing.

T - I wish it were a lot bolder in its taste, and the complexity is low. What taste there is though is nice and in keeping with the wit style. There is a lot of orange on the mouth as well, similar to adding a slice of orange or two to a beer. Thats a practice I'm not fond of (why not just drink better beer?), but its the best way to describe this.

M - Really watery, unremarkable but inoffensive. Makes for a very drinkable but not very memorable beer.

O - I'd like to say I enjoyed it more, but it was just alright for me. I wouldn't like to have it very often, but if it was paired up with dinner at someones house I wouldn't be disappointed. Just OK

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.
