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.

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.

On tap at the brewery.
A fine looking beer, this sparkling golden ale has a lasting head. This variant on a Belgian witbier is notable for the addition of a substantial amount of ginger. This makes for a fine aroma, but there's too much ginger in the flavor, masking much of the more subtle grain and yeast elements.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body; very good carbonation.

O: nearly a cross between a ginger beer and a witbier.

Malty aroma has a fruity undertone and a hint of butterscotch. It comes out of the tap a pretty clear golden amber with a pale golden tan head that hangs around for a while and leaves generous lacing. Malty, fruity flavor has notes of banana, pear and hay and hints of butterscotch and hops. Smooth texture has about average body; the tingle, though not strong, does persist. A tasty, refreshing brew, great for taking the edge off Atlanta’s nefandous July heat.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass tulip. No freshness date. Received from good friend Erinn from ATL.

A: Honey-gold with 1-finger of white, frothy head with decent retention but no lacing. (3.75)

S: Extraordinarily high ginger which masks most of the other wit type of aromas. A little bit of pilsner malt pokees through but not much else other than strong ginger. (2.0)

T: The flavor is also nearly all ginger with a little bit of pale pilsner malt and some faint bubble gum yeast esters. (2.5)

M: Pretty crisp and dry, this is the best feature of this beer. Medium carbonation with light body. (3.5)

O: Not a fan of highly spiced beer so maybe I am not beeing entirely fair but this one missed for me. If you like ginger, definitely you should go for this beer.
