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:

On tap at brewery - Pours, looks, and smells like a typical wit. Above average dept of flavor for a wit - definite common citrus notes but a bit more savory and complex than normal. Definitely solid.

Tap. Hazy yellow with thin white head. Smells like cilantro and that pearly white hand soap. Tastes grassy. Moderately dry finish, bit of graininess.

...had it on tap at the brewpub, and was rather surprised, was much better than I expected. Nice citrus and wheat notes on the nose. Looked nice and cloudy in the glass, with a orange hue. Light carbonation, smooth mouthfeel with nice wheat malt flavor. Finished slightly creamy with orange and corriander notes.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Moon River in Savannah, GA. Appearance looks like fruit juice with very thin white rim. Aroma of orange peel and spice. Taste is slightly bitter, not really too good.

Similar to Blue Moon, this beer is worth getting. Try it along with their others in The Sampler.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Poured cloudy yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was coriander, orange, lemon, some yeastiness. Flavor was dominated by coriander and orange. Some wheat and a light Belgian yeastiness poked through a bit. Not very subtle and pretty one dimensional. Appropriately light palate.

baraciisch (2395) - California, USA - APR 1, 2012
Cloudy yellow in color.... Aroma of wheat, Belgian yeast, coriander... Flavor is slightly sweet and mild, notes of orange and coriander, spices... Finish is slightly bland, not terribly complex and fairly subdued compared to a lot of wits I’ve had... Decent

blipp (7211) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma is wheaty and lightly sweet with some light floral notes. The flavor has a wheaty base with coriander and some flowery notes. Not bad.

burg326 (4812) - Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2012
On draft at Moon River, pours a cloudy yellow color, aromas of lemon, spice, wheat and orange. Flavor is much the same with some banana poking through.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2011
The aroma is full of lemon notes and some spice. The beer is a hazy pale straw. The taste is nowhere near the complexity of the aroma, but the citrus notes are there. The palate is light with smoothness from the wheat.
