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.

Slightly hazy pale gold with a thin head. Not as cloudy as others. Bready lemon aroma. Tastes of sweet American malt with light hints of lemon, banana and corriander. Decent body but the carbonation seems a little low. Crisp, not soft like I would expect. Strange intrepretation of the style.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2007
12 oz sample bottle (labled at 4.8% ABV) into a Tumbler. Pours a mildly hazy and thin yellowish light gold color with a very white and fairly retentive foamy head. Fairly large bubbles are seen rising to the top. Very straight forward yeasty and light citrus/lemony aroma. A touch of coriander is hinted at as well. The taste hints at a Belgian Wit style but ends up being somewhat watery in the end. Hints of orange peel and coriander come up through the front and end with a mainly yeast and slightly wheaty finish. Extremely thin, which isnt really how this style should be. The spice notes are close, but overall it needs some work. I do however appreciate that this brew is organic, and not only that, but certified by the Oregon Tilth instead of the USDA (which has much higher standards!

An ok wheat. Drank it at the brewery. Too watery and not enough flavor for me. A little bit of lemon came through, but overall I was disappointed.

Growler from the brewery. Small bubbled foam, lasts a while with not too much lacing. Pours a pale gold beige, like an aged champagne. Tiny carbonation bubbles. Aroma of coriander, yeast. Palate has hint of orange two thirds of the way through the taste. Coriander shows as well. Has an element that is reminiscent of wild bacteria. Not having had many witbiers, Im not sure if this is correct for the style, but still found it enjoyable.

bigcat03 (284) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JAN 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Draught from the brewery poured into sampler globe glass - Pours yellow gold; Lemon and wheat to the nose; Lemon, orange, malt and a little yeast on the initial taste; Some malt and light hops backtaste; A fairly light watery palate; Not being bottled yet, but I grabbed a growler to bring home and have some friends try. Well worth a try. 7/4/7/2/12 Re-Rate now that its being bottled! A pale gold pour with a nice 1 finger white head. Aroma has lemon, wheat, with lots of clove in the mix. Taste is much the same with some added banana. aftertaste brings plenty of wheat. Body is lighter than I would like. Crisp carbonation. Still a very nice beer and one I will be getting on a regular basis now that its available to me! 8/3/7/2/13
