COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our wit beer (white beer) is an old style Belgian ale, brewed with wheat and barely , and spiced with Curacao bitter orange peel and coriander. The coriander and orange zest are detectable in the beer's aroma with a lingering, yet subtle "orangeiness." A unique one of a kind brew!
Moon River earned four medals at the 2005 Georgia Craft Brew Challenge hosted by Georgians for World-Class Beer. On Nov. 5, more than 200 lucky people packed the Biergarten at Atlanta’s 5 Seasons Brewing Company to taste the best beers made in Georgia. During the blind judging session, judges evaluated 35 beers and deemed:
• Belgian Ale Category: 1st Place - Wild Wacky Wit

hotstuff (4411) - Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Rated on 02-25-2013 at Moon River B.C. This draft beer’s appearance is a very small white head that mostly diminishes, cloudy butterscotch body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is wheat, coriander, spice, and sweet. The flavor is lemony, sweet, coriander, and light wheat. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This is a session beer that could use a bit more flavor.

Banana noise to start with. Not as harsh a wheat bite as many of them have. Mild and tasty.

Pretty average wit. Standard cloudy orange. Heavy on coriander and orange. Appropriately yeasty. Not bad, but nothing special.

On tap @ Moon River / Savannah GA --- Cloudy pale straw color with a rim head, streaks of lace. Taste begins with thin wheat. Grows some in the palate before adding a zesty shot of carbonated coriander and spice, followed by light citrus bittering to finish. The spices are brief, but are the best part. Otherwise, seems like a thin shandy.
