BEER INFO

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

Style: 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.

Appearance: Cloudy golden with a one finger head that thins out quick.

Aroma: Orange zest, light yeasty notes that carries a light dryness in the nose. Bits of lemon peel, coriander.

Taste: Light bodied, a fairly smooth mouthfeel, lemon orange zest, light cinnamon and coriander.

Notes: Not too bad of a Witbier and decently drinkable. Cheers.

A little bit of corn-like taste at the end.

Hazy pale orange, lively streams of carbonation, pure white but fizzy head. I'm floored by the nose, in a good way- succulent juicy tropical fruit like mango, apricot, orange, some white pepper and cardamom, a fair bit of vanilla. It's a little sugary cloying, but I'm nearly drooling for it at the same time. The flavor becomes a bit muddier with some chalky, peppery yeast muffling those juicy notes, but remains tasty. Despite the honey, perhaps because of the yeast flavor, this is pretty dry. Overly carbonated, it almost burns, but if that had been toned down it would be very refreshing.
I'm both disappointed that the nose didn't take its indulgence to the flavor as well; it would have been delicious, but possibly considered a malternative. Belgian in audacity with ingredients and highlighting the yeast, but it didn't quite have the Belgian nuance. This was still a great pleasure.

Hazy peach color with a small, white head. Aroma is floral with coriander and grains. Taste starts with coriander, chamomile, orange and grains. Body is medium, smooth but well carbonated. Really refreshing but also tasty with nice floral and fruity notes.

With the reduction of Belgian yeast character going on here, I found myself enjoying this Wit more than others. Too many American brewers are too heavy handed in allowing the yeast to take over, honey, orange and wheat were able to be detected here as opposed to other takes on this style.
