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.

Serving type: on-tap

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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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 like this beer, and it appears I like it a bit more than some other reviewers do. I'd agree that this isn't a classic Witbier, it being a bit too sweet and obviously spiced differently, but I like the sweetness, which is honeyed, combined with the spicy ginger. I even think that there is a refreshing quality to this beer on a hot day. I've been drinking a fair bit of this the latter part of the summer and hope to see it again next summer.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in East Roswell, Georgia.

Appearance: Delivered to me a heavily hazed, darkened yellow body with a smallish, slowly receding head.

Smell: Sourish, grainy, dough-scented aromatics atop a restrained spiciness and a slivers of fresh ginger.

Taste: Again, a sourish, doughy wheat and pils malt flavor given a light dose of icing sugar. Mild Continental hops, a little citrus. Squirt of fresh ginger. The fullness of the flavor dials up until the dry, spicy, gingery finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation; while not particularly prickly or overly lively, there is a subtle tickle to the carbonation.

Overall: Monday Night presents a pleasant, relatively fuller witbier.

Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice golden, slightly cloudy color. Great head. Little to no lacing.

S: ginger, ginger, ginger. Some slight Belgian yeast scents, however, they only come through as it warms and the ginger just slaps it around.

T: spicy ginger flavor. This is a beer that is a one trick pony, and that is ginger. It is a borderline ginger beer. I rated it highly though as it is such an awesome flavor in this style.

M: Carbonated well and spicy. Flavor comes and goes but the ginger just linger forever.

O: I went back and read the bottle after drinking and they did use ginger in the beer. It is dominate in the scent and flavor so if you don't dig ginger, stay far away. If you do, this beer is for you. Whatever your tastes are, this is a highly refreshing beer and great for a hot summer day.
