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.

12 oz. bottle: Golden hazy pour in wide mouth glass. Decent head, leaves good lasting lace, pleasing citrisy aroma, light body. I enjoyed the citrus and wheat combination and the spice gives it just enough bite and flavor to want another. A fairly nice beer.

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.

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 (4069) - 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.

A - Slightly hazy pale yellow with a small white head that sinks quickly. S - Dried bananas, dry wheat, lemon, spices. T - Lemon, clean wheat, banana, lemongrass, coriander, floral hops. M - Light side of medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth feel with a dry finish. This is a nice dry Wit. Subtle on all fronts including the look. Great for hot weather.

Overall, very simplistic and one note. Lots of just wheat notes. No real backbone.

Lemke10 (771) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
I love the taste of wheat beers, so I wondered what an organic wheat beer would taste like. It pours a rather pale yellow color, with a rather heavy scent of wheat. It drinks rather smooth with a strong long lasting wheat taste. The texture is a little to simple for me, perhaps it could use a little more carbonation. Interesting but not my favorite witbier.

For those who like the Belgian Wit, there are those who like it spicy and some who don’t. This is for those who do. Not particularly subtle, but surprisingly well balanced for the amount of citrus, coriander, and other flavors assaulting your taste buds.

Smooth and crisp with a little bit of sweetness. Very refreshing. Wonderful on a warm evening.

NeoHippie2 (978) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2012
This is a very well done witbier. Pours a hazy amber into the glass, unfiltered as it should be. Lots of yeast and wheat on the nose. Taste follows suit with a doughy character in there as well. Hints of orange peel and coriander. Crisp finish, solid beer.
