COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first venture into organically-produced beer, Mothership Wit Organic Wheat Beer elevates the zesty Wit or White beers of Belgium. Our far-flung Beer Rangers affectionately refer to our Fort Collins brewery as the Mothership, a name that conjures images of earth shot from space and the interconnectivity of it all. Mothership Wit is brewed with wheat and barley malt, as well as coriander and orange peel spicing resulting in a balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.

Clouded wheaty appearance w. crisp head. Simple, but crisp witbier that does the trick for summer.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Lemonade yellow with a dense film of bubbles. Nose-soapy, coriander, big Belgian esters. Taste-lotion, chamomile, light soapy, very restrained wit spices, smoked wood, medium CO1, and light banana esters. Overall very weird.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2008 Draft. Pale , hazy yellow color with no head. Banana, lemons and orange aroma. Sharp lemon flavor with phenols. Clean and crisp beer. Thin mouth feel. A very strange beer for a wit but still pretty drinkable.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2006
On tap @ Old Chicago (Mall) in Boise. Pours a cloudy yellow color. Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didn’t care for this beer much. White beers aren’t high on my list.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 27, 2006
At Hops in Humboldt Micro-Brew Festival in 4 oz glass. Poured a cloudy yellow with a very small bubbled head the stuck to the sides of the glass. Nose is strongly coriander and citrus, backed by light hops. Reminded me a lot of Great White from my local brewery, but mayby not quite a well balance. Mouthfeel was crisp, and it sort of danced across the tongue. Flaver is again coriander with some touch of fruit like oranges and banana. Finish is decent. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 22, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy banana. Wispy dense edge of foam and lasting lacing. Meaty aroma wih some cardboard and straw. Some wheat flavor but I don’t know if some smoked malt snuck in or what. This was just weird. Fair amount of yeastiness in finish, very little banana or pear or coriander that I so enjoy. Very weird and not enjoyable.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2006
From and unlabeled bottle at the AHA membership drive at the brewery. Pours clear with a light head. Straw colored. Aroma of yeast, mild hop, lemony. The flavour is crisp, light, wheat, lemony, sweet grassy. It has a wonderfully crisp lightness.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Tap at Anchor Bar, Wichita, KS. Pours cloudy and light yellow with nice carbonation and a small head. Aroma is coriander and citrus. Flavor is light coriander with a hint of orange peel. A bit watery in the mouth but this works well with the light flavors. Nice brew for a 100 degree+ Wichita afternoon.
