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.

Bottle. A- Cloves, coriander, spices, wheat. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Coriander, spices, subtle citrus, wheat. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- An overly spiced wit for sure. Maybe a bit heavy on the coriander. Not too bad. Pretty typical for the style.

Light wit smell, very pale yellow, lightly cloudy, looks very cool, taste is light, very neutral on flavor, not sweet or hoppy, hardly any depth, not much to rate...just a light sourness... Halloween at home first time!!

superspak (4882) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 10/9/2016. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana/bubblegum, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana/bubblegum, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, balance, and solid robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very good witbier. All around good complexity, balance, and solid robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

MetalNHopHead (1583) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Like any self-respecting Belgian-inspired brewery, New Belgium has made some excellent Witbiers in its time. Mothership Wit is nicely done; it fits the standard of what to expect from a Wit made on American soil. Yellow and foamy, mostly sweet, lightly spicy, lightly citrusy, and light-bodied. Highly drinkable. Not as good as some of the other Wits in New Belgiums inventory but solid.

muzzlehatch (4878) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #56. On draught at Acadia Caf in Minneapolis, August 2008. Extremely pale cloudy yellow with a small but lasting white bubbly head and good lacing...honey-spicy nose, a bit of citrus, light dusty yeast...juicy, citric flavors, with lovely dryish cookie-biscuit malts in the body, very well-balanced on the sweet-tart-malty front...full but quite supple body, strong but appropriate carbonation.

PugUglyBrewer (250) - - AUG 27, 2016
Got this one in a variety 12 pack from New Belgium. 12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy yellow color with a creamy whipped head on top. The nose opens up aromas of floral, clove, spice, lemon and banana with a a trace of bubblegum funk. The taste is lemon zest, creamy wheat, banana and herbal spice.

PhatCatt (70) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Poured into tumbler, typical wheat beer color, but with a yellow mineral tinge. Orange peel, I like that there is not too much spice unlike another witbier I tried.
