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

Lightly hazy, straw-colored ale. Small, creamy, white head. The nose is peppery and floral with a touch of orange blossom honey. Nicely balanced, but thin. Some citrus fruit with decent bittering (grapefruit rind). Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Sammy (9442) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2008
On-tap at the brewpub. There was a substance to this wit, and a drying peppery corriander taste. A little sweetness and a drop of citrus. But I could not get at the complexity. The turnover is ferocious here, so I do not suspect it’s been about too long.
