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

Shag (2668) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2007
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.

mattcoats (47) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 10, 2007
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.

shrubber85 (8748) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2007
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 (1246) - 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.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Draught. Pours cloudy yellow/white. Aroma is very citrusy, I made sure there was no wedge of fruit stuffed in the glass, and thankfully it was all natural. Quite impressive. Flavor is very citrusy as well, full of orange, lemon zest, and grain. Refreshing finish, nice beer.

dchmela (2784) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Moon River Brew Tap, Savannah. Pours out a light, hazy, lemonade like color. Aroma is citrus and wheat. Taste is lemony with some clove and wheat. Not a bad offering from Moon River, very easy drinking on a hot July day.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Pours a light, cloudy gold with a thin white head. The aroma was wheaty with some citrus and orange zest. The flavor was excellent and appropriate for the style - sweet malts, lots of chewy wheat, a nice citrus tone from orange peel, with a subtle background of spice (coriander and yeast). The finish was medium in body with an after-taste of sweet orange. Very nice - especially on a hot day in Savannah.

on tap-pours a white head and cloudy straw color. Aroma is faint wheat. Taste is faint wheat, bitter orange peel. Light body. OK effervescence.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2007
Draft pint at the brewpub; bright yellow but opaque. Virtually no head. With the installed lemon wedge, this is boldly fruity and very lemony ... virtually no sign of the well disguised coriander. This was almost lemon soda. (#2824, 4/25/2007)
