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

4 oz. sampler. Pours a cloudy, lemonade-like color. Aroma of orange peel. Mouthfeel is very clean and dry, with bready notes. Subtle spices sneak up at the end.

WBF. Nice Belgian white. A bit more on the sweet side. But it has a spicy side to it. Easy to drink.

I love local beer fests. You get to partake in alot of fun and drink alot of run of the mill brews. This one here is a prime example. Just your regular old wit beer. I thought it was rather refreshing though.

Draft sample at SBGF07. Poured hazy white color with a medium frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a sticky texture. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of moderate duration.

Draught at the brewpub. Glowing orange body with a one finger thick white head. Good lacing. Notes of oranges, coriander, apricot and wheat. Tastes like your average Wit. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. FInish is lengthy and full of citrus notes. OK.

A cloudy yellow appearance. The aroma is slightly spicy and floral with some coriander and lemons present. The flavor is somewhat sour with some oranges and lemons. The aftertaste is rather creamy. Overall a pretty good witbier.

For the style, this was a good brew. With hints of coriander and other wild herbs, this beer reminds me of blue moon and tastes great with a wedge of orange.

Tap at brewery. Sweet orange/lemon and coriander aroma. Cloudy pale yellow with minimal head. Sweet orange and lemon flavor - lightly musty. On the sweet side but an excellent beer.

desurfer (1222) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Cloudy yellow body, little head. Aroma is lemony and a bit spicy. Flavor is rich and sweet with mild hoppiness. Not a bad one for the summer heat.
