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

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2011
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.

aracauna (3734) - Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Pale yellow with appropriate cloudiness and a nice, white head. The coriander and orange are pronounced and create a very pleasant aroma. The body is fairly dry and refreshing with a slight bit of tartness in the end. A very tasty witbier. Easily in the top tier of the style.

Pours a light, cloudy gold with a thin white head. The aroma was wheaty with some citrus and orange zest. The flavor was excellent and appropriate for the style - sweet malts, lots of chewy wheat, a nice citrus tone from orange peel, with a subtle background of spice (coriander and yeast). The finish was medium in body with an after-taste of sweet orange. Very nice - especially on a hot day in Savannah.

Goodgrief (2082) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Sampled at brewpub. Murky pale color with some head and lacing. Lots of orange flavor. Sweet, fruity and yeasty. Enjoyable, but none of the peppery spice that makes a belgian wit a belgian wit. Hints of coriander. Good, but not really true to style.

Draft at the brewpub. Very hazy yellow color with a lasting white head. Slightly slick on the palate with lots of lemony flavor with a little orange peel, wheat, and yeast. Sweet with a light spice finish. Clean and really refreshing stuff. This was probably my favorite beer of all the ones I tried at this place. I could drink a lot of these in the hot sun.

drdisque (905) - Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2012
On tap at brewery - Pours, looks, and smells like a typical wit. Above average dept of flavor for a wit - definite common citrus notes but a bit more savory and complex than normal. Definitely solid.

Scopey (16550) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Tap at Moon River. It pours cloudy gold with a medium white head. The nose is wheat, herbal, floral, wheat, earth and a light touch of smoke. The taste is wheat, earth, light sweetness, orange peel, floral, light spice and a touch of herb with a dry, faintly citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and refreshing wit. Great for the Savannah heat!

Wonderful wacky wit. One of their best. Smooth and crisp with a nice finish and a good flavor.

3.6
muzzlehatch (4977) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Draught and cask samples at the brewpub. Cloudy lemon-gold with a bit more head on the CO2 version....succulent aroma of lemon zest, coriander, lilac and honeysuckle, very floral and strong (less so in cask version)....body dry, rather yeasty, with lots of lemon oil towards the finish, light spicing....low, tingly carbonation....cask version is a bit fuller in body, and a bit more delicate and subtle but in this case perhaps too much so, rather duller than the bright CO2 version and with a much weaker aroma....rating is for regular tap version, cask would be about .3 lower overall.

3.6
Shag (3071) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2007
A cloudy yellow appearance. The aroma is slightly spicy and floral with some coriander and lemons present. The flavor is somewhat sour with some oranges and lemons. The aftertaste is rather creamy. Overall a pretty good witbier.
