Sweet Orange Wit by Garage Brewing Co. was judged as a #29C (Specialty Fruit Beer) according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. I feel that this is the appropriate style for this beer, because a fruit flavoring (or extract, in this case, orange) was used in the making of this beer. The base beer is wheat along with the fruit flavoring / syrup along with spices (coriander) and hops. The pour revealed a wonderful light yellow/orange hue along with good carbonation. The aroma of this beer had a nice malt sweetness along with a very light 'orange' aroma almost reminiscent of Fanta (orange soda) ? Negligible hop aroma in the pour is fine and indicative of the style. This style of beer should not be hoppy at all. The flavor of this beer had a nice malt wheat backbone that was lightly hopped. I detected an orange flavor as indicated in the title of this beer, "Sweet Orange Wit." The beer was a little too sweet, but it was indicated as such in the description. Had again an orange soda-like flavor to this that can be appealing to a certain beer drinker. The body and mouthfeel of this beer was very light and refreshing. I can see this beer enjoyed during a hot day.
