COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Years ago whistles pierced the air and the ground literally shook from the power steam. The Monon Railroad helped propel Indiana’s economy from 1897-1956 and earned its name from the convergence of its four main routes in Monon, Indiana. From Monon, the mainlines reached Chigago, Louisville, Indianapolis, Michigan City and most towns in between. Our refreshing Belgian style Wit beer is powered by the memories of the Monon and brewed with lemon peel, orange peel, and coriander for a crisp, tart finish. For an extremely refreshing and drinkable beer, hard working cutters say "All Aboard!" the Monon.

Bottle. Musty lemon malt and coriander aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with nice white head and moderate effervescence. Lightly sweet lemon malt and mild musty flavor. Body on the light side. Very nice. As a cutter (at least by reputation but not occupation), I was happy that this was so good.

Hazy golden pour with a white head. Aromas of orange peel and slight banana on the nose. Flavor has a nice malt presence upfront with notes of spice, finish is very crisp and clean. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Pours hazy golden yellow with white head and a little lacing. Aromas of bread, hay, and some floral. Taste is mildly sweet, even some sourness, with some bitterness on the back end. Nice light body, lively carbonation. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised. Nice flavor, smooth, good taste with the malts and a pretty true wheat beer. Nothing fancy about this one. Just a good drinking beer.

Pours hazy lemon gold, with tall, pillowy, slightly off-white head. Scent is mildly wheaty, some lemon, spice....just a faint bit of farmhouse funk....Taste is a pleasant lemon malt, grain.....tickle of coriander. Very soft, mildly sweet. A very, very nice beer.

Bottle thanks to secret santa! Pour has a golden color with a thin covering of off white head. aroma has wheat, light lemon, some yeast, and mild spice. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. Flavor has a wheat base, mild spice, lemon grass, yeast, and a slight sourness. Very drinkable beer with an interesting twist of flavors.

12oz bottle poured hazy yellow with white head. Nice citrus aroma. The flavor is light citrus and crisp. Very good actually. Life the tartness this provides. Very drinkable wit.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Weizen glass displays a lightly cloundy yellow color with just the tiniest ring of white head. No lace. This brew has a nice citrus aroma filled with orange and lemon along with a trace of coriander. The flavor is spot on the aromas with the flavor being rather pleasant. Palate is light and crisp with a dry texture. Overall, this is pleasant and real easy to drink. A bit above average, I would recommend to any Wit beer lovers who live in Indiana.

Bottle pours a murky light yellow with a white head that does not last. Aromas are a bit of spice, some yeastiness and grass. Taste is citrus, spice, and a little earthy. Much more complex and flavorful than I was expecting. A very drinkable brew.

12oz bottle, from Crown Liquors in downtown Indianapolis. Shared with b3shine. Mildly hazy golden color. Little white head. Couple dots of lace. Pretty nice citrusy peel nose. Perfect amount of spice and zest, very tasty. Moderate sweet taste, medium body. Smooth, very light carbonation. Lightly slick. Really easy-drinking. Much better than expected, I’m glad it turned out to be a witbier, I was expecting something more boring from the plain old "wheat" descriptor.
