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

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 (2159) - 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 (6508) - Newark, New Jersey, 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 (4127) - 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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a cloudy yellow color. The nose has light grain and some lemon. The flavor has stale grains, a slight off vegetal note, some lemon, wheat, and sulfur. Dry finish. This brew is past it’s prime assuming it had a prime.

decaturstevo (5307) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Cloudy straw yellow with white head and lace. Aroma of wheat, paper, a hinto orange, and pepper. Wheaty, paper, light orange, and no bitter on the taste. Light bodied with smooth carbonation.

changeup45 (1719) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Very hazy yellow color with a lasting white head. Slightly slick on the palate with lots of lemony flavor with a little orange peel, wheat, and yeast. Sweet with a light spice finish. Clean and really refreshing stuff. This was probably my favorite beer of all the ones I tried at this place. I could drink a lot of these in the hot sun.
