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.

12 oz bottle, 7 months after bringing to east coast into pokal style Liefmans glass. Pours cloudy pale yellow, tall slowly dissipating head. Appropriately lacking in clarity. Heavy wheaty, coriander aroma. Flavor is traditional wit, though heavier on coriander than orange, picking up a bit of lemon. Light mouthfeel, dry almost lactic level sour finish, clean without aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Yeasty, wheat, citrus, grain aromas. Citrus, yeasty, spicy, wheat flavors. Not quite as good as I remembered from 6-7 years ago, but still a really good wit.

TizzleJizzle (763) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2016
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear straw yellow with a white head and minimal lacing. Faint taste of orange peel, wheat and coriander. Medium carbonation, light body. Overall, it’s watered down.

Bottle: Slightly hazy yellow with a bright white head. Banana, wheat, coriander scent. Taste is sweet, banana, wheat malt...citrusy.... Increasingly lemony. Light and refreshing.

BeerRenter76 (654) - Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Originally rated on 1/10/08. This pours a yellow, hazy brew with very little head. Kind of watery but not bad tasting, hints of citrus and corrander. Not a bad witbier but there are better.

Old rating. Cloudy gold. Wheat, spice, lemon, some orange. Decently drinkable, but forgettable wheat.

slowrunner77 (9223) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014

Travlr (19903) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
The color of urine when you have a bladder infection, very odd for a beer. Aroma of lemon zest. Taste is reminiscent of a sour limoncello, very refreshing. Tasty, but simple, everything revolves around the lemon theme.

TXBadger (2385) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pours a golden color with white head. Raw wheat notes and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some citrus hop notes. Not bad.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Rated on 5-21-2009 (Bottle with a Best Before date of 25Sep09) This beer pours a small very fizzy white head with good retention, cloudy lemon body, one ring of lacing, fizzy, lively and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, wheat, orange peel, sweet, citrus, and coriander. Ditto for the Taste along with a dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this beer is easy to drink, a session beer and refreshing on a Spring day.
