These guys just get better and better with each new recipe. Strong witbier yeast and wheat malt aroma from the start really gets you interested. Wild farmhouse taste, good carbonation. Spicy clove, maybe a little bit of diacetyl... but doesn't dominate. A good third beer from a good microbrewery.

Holy...wow...been a while. Ehem...yeah, sorry. College and work and stuff...

Funny story--So, we had a few sample beers left over from companies who wanted to have their stuff on tap here at the Wing, so what else are we supposed to do but drink 'em? This here's a Belgian witbier named Fu Man Brew...huh, I'll give 'em points for creativity. Bottoms up!
Poured into a standard US Pint
A- Deep golden yellow with about a 1/4-1/3 inch head. Clear as day with a few bubbles rising up. Easily an inviting appearance. 4/5
S- Right away you get the citrus and ginger notes. Really nice, pure smell from a witbier I've come to expect. 4.25/5
T- Went down clean. You get a good bit of spices up front, and a nice refreshing ginger note as it goes down your throat. Easily go back for more. 4.5/5
M- No bad aftertaste on this one. After everything settles, you get the ginger and citrus notes they used stuck on your taste buds. Good stuff! 4/5
O- Maybe because it was colder I feel a bit stunned by how well put together this one is (It was put in our beer cooler for a good bit before I had it.) but I think this one's a keeper! 4.25/5
Verdict: Wow...I'm real surprised we don't have this one on tap here. Otherwise, this would replace Yuengling as my go to after-shift treat. Definitely recommend this one to people who like stuff like Blue Moon or Shock Top. Especially those who live in the Atlanta area. A great pickup!

Slightly cloudy golden pour. Normal head volume, poor lacing and retention.

Nice classic Belgian Wit nose of light citrus (lemon, orange), rich coriander notes, but light on banana notes until it warms. Also present is a spicy ginger undertone.

Almost medium bodied with a texture approaching creamy. Normal carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.

The flavor profile is outstanding. It is intense (ginger forward), complex and reasonably balanced. It begins with a tart burst that is mostly lemon. The lemon slowly yields to orange and banana notes. In the middle, ginger comes forward with a coriander and clove background. The finish is a slow fade of these flavors with phenolic clove becoming more noticeable.

A: Golden blonde, hazy, thin to little head, slight lacing in the middle. Not much apparent carbonation.
S: Light, crisp, ginger, slight citrus notes. Orange, mainly.
T: Same as the smell, with some honey. A little medicinal, but not in a bad way. Reminds me of Terrapin Reunion Ale from 2012.
M: Solid, slight carbonation.
O: Funky (not in a Cantillon style, but more in a 60's disco style), and different from a lot of beer I've had. Not something I'd drink a lot of, but a very enjoyable change of pace, especially when it's left in your fridge after a party, like this six pack was.

I think this is a really refreshing beer, but it's not for everyone. The ginger can be overpowering, but if you like ginger, you'll like this beer. It's an interesting combo.

This beer is really great for sushi fanatics. The ginger cleanses your palate in between pieces. I just wish my local sushi joint served this instead of Sapporo.
