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!

Similar to Blue Moon, this beer is worth getting. Try it along with their others in The Sampler.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Pours hazy yellow, nice white head. Nice spicy aroma, flavor is the same strong orange peel taste that wasnt bitter, touch of coriander, and lemon. Hops come through with just the right bitterness. Malts tasted really good it left a biscuity aftertaste. Light, easy, just an awesome beer from my favorite style, dont see why its not rated higher its dead on with the style.

Ratings by Veeve, Back by Popular Demand, on Vacay in the lovely Savannah, Georgia. This beer is found on tap at the MoonRiver restaurant and brewing site on Bay Street in Savannah, GA. This was my personal favorite among the 7 beer sampler they offer, though I dont think it is the highest quality beer they have. That would be the porter. However, this beer is light, citrus, with a touch of grass. Its a soft mouthfeel. a perfect spring/summer refreshment. This was the only beer I chose to have a full pint full of after I sampled all 7. While the description of this beer stated it was "exotic" and "a party in your mouth" I did not find it to be crazy explosive with flavor but more subtle and softly-strong; more sweet, earthy and delicious.

Tap at brewery. Sweet orange/lemon and coriander aroma. Cloudy pale yellow with minimal head. Sweet orange and lemon flavor - lightly musty. On the sweet side but an excellent beer.

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.

Imperial Pint at Moon River. Awesome appearance..thick cloudy yellow-orange-tan. Interesting, almost an oaky wheat. Semi-strong spice character, well interplayed with the yeastiness and wheat. Medium to light bodied, very drinkable. Lots of sour wheat. Really forward on the lemon, clove..like a Hefe without the banana. The aroma has a little of a brewhouse feel which doesnt work for me, but otherwise this is spot on. Great beer.

Banana noise to start with. Not as harsh a wheat bite as many of them have. Mild and tasty.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
On tap at Moon River Brewing on 5/17/08. Pours a cloudy, bright yellow with thin white head that clings to the sides of the glass. Aroma is of citrus and lemon. Taste is slightly sweet, lemony, hints of coriander, with a somewhat medium to light body. Beer is smooth with a slighty watery but otherwise pleasant finish. Nice witbier.

The aroma is full of lemon notes and some spice. The beer is a hazy pale straw. The taste is nowhere near the complexity of the aroma, but the citrus notes are there. The palate is light with smoothness from the wheat.
