COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian style wit, brewed with unmalted wheat and pilsen malt. Additions of coriander, orange peel, and lemon peel give citrus notes to this light summer refresher. The only place in the Western Hemisphere that you can regularly see a Moonbow is at Cumberland Falls, Kentucky.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Hazy golden-yellow. Steady thin white head. Fresh zesty lemon vanilla aroma. Oaty. True to style, with a nice spiced orange balance. Not overbearing, lemony, very fresh overall feel. Right on.

Chudwick (2147) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Draft in a pint glass -pours cloudy orange with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is smoky orange, spicy and more citrus. Taste is sweet and a tad tart. Leaves a hoppy finish. Not as refreshing as most wheat ales prolly not as hoppy as any other beer available here at Cumberland brews.

Aroma of grass, citrus, coriander and light lemon. Appearance was slightly cloudy gold with light white head. Flavor was grassy up front, with a little bubblegum and lemon/citrus tartness in the finish. Palate was bubbly. Nice Witbier.

Tmoney99 (10675) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Draft sample at KFOA. Poured hazy yellow color with a medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus and herbs aroma. Medium body with a tingly smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium herbal sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate long duration. My expectations where met.
