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:

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Draught and cask samples at the brewpub. Cloudy lemon-gold with a bit more head on the CO2 version....succulent aroma of lemon zest, coriander, lilac and honeysuckle, very floral and strong (less so in cask version)....body dry, rather yeasty, with lots of lemon oil towards the finish, light spicing....low, tingly carbonation....cask version is a bit fuller in body, and a bit more delicate and subtle but in this case perhaps too much so, rather duller than the bright CO2 version and with a much weaker aroma....rating is for regular tap version, cask would be about .3 lower overall.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2006
(On tap) Very hazy - almost milky white - with a creamy, white head. Extremely perfumy, oozing with coriander and orange peel. Light body, a bit flat, discreet wheaty accents and a dry, lightly tart finish. 010406

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Sampled at GCBC 2005. Pours cloudy yellow with a fully receding white head. Aroma is mild citrus from the orange peel. Taste is spicy with some wheat showing up in the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Enjoyable, but I like more extreme spicing in witbiers.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2005
On Draft at Jacksonville’s Follio Weekly Beer and Music Fest. Nice hazy yellow color with a white head that produced some lacing. Strong lemon aroma and flavor. Light to medium body. A favorite for me at the Fest.

BeerandBlues2 (10264) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Hazy yellow with a white head. Fair lacing. Orange hop aroma with a corriander nose. Malt flavor with a lingering fruitiness. Mild and refreshing on the palate.

aracauna (3160) - Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Pale yellow with appropriate cloudiness and a nice, white head. The coriander and orange are pronounced and create a very pleasant aroma. The body is fairly dry and refreshing with a slight bit of tartness in the end. A very tasty witbier. Easily in the top tier of the style.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Hazy straw color. Aroma is sweet and fruity of grapes and oranges and light coriander. Flavor is of sweet oranges with a light bitter and spicy finish. Light to medium bodied.

skaughty (650) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Quite a substantial amount of orange in this wit - at the expense of being a little less spicy than some (a plus in my book). The tanginess is sensed in the aroma, and carries all the way through. The palate was rounder and more complex (chunky wheat almost comes through asa solid) than most of this style - a winner indeed.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2004
This is a nice imitation of a Wit. Very refreshing and fruity with notes of coriander and orange peel. Classic wit. good the the heat.
