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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pale, golden amber, thin head of tiny bubbles, vanishing fast. Beautiful bubble streams rising slow. Wee bit of lacing.

Smells faintly of malty-dry honey-wheat.

Crisp, light with a honey- floral tinted bubble crush of hops.
Citrus, like the floral notes, is understated. The honey-wheat taste lingers.

Mellow. I find it goes quite well with a healthy bowl of cereal.

Canned on date of 05/18/17

Appearance - Pours hazy and golden orange in color with a white, near finger width head. Sub-par retention results in a mostly barren surface with a fair ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Decent lacing, with a few broken lines and some spotting.

Smell - Smells of wheat, orange, light honey, faint milkiness, and a fair amount of coriander spice.

Taste - Follows the nose; wheat, some milkiness, orange character and subtle honey. Light spice bites near the finish, leading to a sweet, slightly spicy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with low-to-moderate carbonation. Slick on the tongue with a relatively flat finish.

Overall - Barely a step up from Blue Moon, but it's passable.

I really like this. Subtle on the orange and great after taste. Very nice. I prefer it to blue moon which for me the fruity-ness is a bit much

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving a glazing of lace roaming around the glass. The smell had a nice sweet sticky orange and blended citrus rind. A light spice around the coriander helps to balance. The taste took the orange and citrus to combine with the spice to develop a nice refreshing lead into the aftertaste and leave a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent crisp sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but seemed to smooth out a light citrus rind bitterness over my tongue delicately. Overall, this one was good, Americanized, but yes, good.

Pours a cloudy yellow with nice foam and minimal lacing. Smells of citrus, to be honest the smell is very muted, I cannot get much out of it. The taste is very good, good orange notes with wheat/honey and mild carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable beer, excellent for summer months and out by the lake fishing, very nice. Wish it had a little more depth of flavor but as a whole a nice beer.

Cloudy golden-orange color. Minimal head. Aromas of orange and wheat, with a taste profile that matches. I really like how the orange is just a hint, though. Bit of a bite to it, quite a bit of carbonation. Finish that lingers for quite a while.

Nice semi-cloudy gold in color with very minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is extremely light with just a touch of orange peel. Taste is cool with some watery orange flavor and the feel is reminiscent of a wheat. Finish s clean with a touch of a creamsicle at the end
