COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bright, spicy Belgian-style wit. An effervescent, easy-drinking wheat beer, brewed with Belgian yeast, German hops, and a whisper of ginger from the Far East. This mustachio’d Belgian-style wit believes that good beer defies borders. The name Fu Manbrew was crowdsourced with some help from our friends at Scoutmob. They call the mustache a “Flavor Savor” for a reason.

Ernest (6596) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle at Six Pence, Savannah. No head. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with notes of ginger and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, nearly flat carbonation. Undercarbonated and smells mostly of ginger. Rather bland in the mouth. Could only drink a few ounces before boredom set it.

Bork (416) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Good quality wit with the classic profile well developed. Wheat, coriander and sweaty yeast on a solid yet pleasantly refreshing body.

vipinvelp (2689) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015
Light opaque dark yellow, white small lacing foam head. Light citrus aroma and taste, does only have small resemblance with WITBIER. Some spice tones, ginger. (Atlanta 201505)

weihenweizen (2071) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from jbruner poured into a weizen glass. Hazy light orange with small white head which dissipates pretty fast. Aroma is spicy coriander, light body, well carbonated, and little lacing. Taste is coriander and some orange. Reminiscent of Napa Smith Wheat Beer.

tillmac62 (377) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Slightly cloudy golden pour. Normal head volume, poor lacing and retention. Nice classic Belgian Wit nose of light citrus (lemon, orange), rich coriander notes, but light on banana notes until it warms. Also present is a spicy ginger undertone. Almost medium bodied with a texture approaching creamy. Normal carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. It is intense (ginger forward), complex and reasonably balanced. It begins with a tart burst that is mostly lemon. The lemon slowly yields to orange and banana notes. In the middle, ginger comes forward with a coriander and clove background. The finish is a slow fade of these flavors with phenolic clove becoming more noticeable.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits. Aroma of powdered sugar, ginger, with light esters, and minimal citrus. Medium straw color and rather furious carbonation rising. Light malt, sugar, big ginger, some wheat, and an herbal medicine finish. Thin body. Okay... but the ginger is too apparent and doesn’t blend in well.

BVery (7604) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle from The Stout Brothers in Atlanta, GA. Mostly clear light orange pour with a small soapy white head. Ginger jumps out first on aroma - pretty cool. Bit of yeast. More ginger on taste. This is somewhat unique and well made. Digging it.

From a bottle, A golden yellow. Great ginger aroma - a lot going on. Starts sweet and lemony and the flavor drifts with bubbles on your tongue. Lingering slight maltiness.

DrSilverworm (8160) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Shared with aabean & friends. Orange color. Thin white head, leaving good splotches of lace. Very nice snappy ginger aroma, a very welcome addition here. Dot and bit of lace. Good bit of belgian yeast, some breadiness. Medium body. Smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Very refreshing and bright. Moderate sweet taste, good bit of zest, mild bitter. Some citrus type hop? Mild spice. Very refreshing tasty wit. I love the ginger.
