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:

Sampled at brewpub. Murky pale color with some head and lacing. Lots of orange flavor. Sweet, fruity and yeasty. Enjoyable, but none of the peppery spice that makes a belgian wit a belgian wit. Hints of coriander. Good, but not really true to style.

Pint glass at the brewpub. Was a cloudy pale yellow with a very thing white head. The aroma was of coriander, wheat and some orange. Overall there wasn’t much taste with light flavors of coriander and citrus. This beer could be better if it had a little more flavor.

On draft at the Moon River Brew Pub cloudy amber color, with aspice and orange aroma, light white head not lasting, spice and metallic flavor, didn’t do much for me expected more from it but it edged out the Captain’s Porter by a nose.

Draft at Moon River served in a pint glass. Pour was cloudy straw with very little head and no lacing. Nose was old vegetables, light spices, and an odd buttery thing going on. Taste was on par, but the spices associated with the style didn’t really show up until the finish. Even then, they were mild undertones. Not a bat WIT brew, but nothing to write home about either.

On draft at the brewer. Cloudy yellow lemon with white head. Wheat sweet scent. Taste is wheat and citrus with some spice. Watery feel detracts.

(The menu says it features “Belgian Curacao bitter orange peel and coriander”.) Nearly no head and very little lace, otherwise a good looking cloudy gold color Smell: simply mild wheat, little else A smooth wheat beer without the unmalted wheat bite. No noticeable spice as advertised . Good body with a lower than expected carbonation. Dry finish that is short lived.

Sampled at WBF in Durham - the only Wit I tried all day. Nice break from the porters and stouts. Poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spice and citrus. The taste was a refeshing citrus with some spice undertone and a wheaty finish. Not bad at all.

Not a bad wit, but if it’s Georgia’s best then they need to brew more of them! Aroma was very pleasant with the coriander really coming through for a floral, orangey goodness. The flavors were a bit lacking I think, but I’m a fan of using oat in these and not barley so perhaps a difference of style. Pour was a very nice cloudy yellow typical of the style.
