BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Monday Night Brewing
Georgia, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A bright, spicy Belgian-style wit. An effervescent, easy-drinking wheat beer, brewed with Belgian yeast, German hops, and a whisper of ginger from the Far East. This mustachio’d Belgian-style wit believes that good beer defies borders. The name Fu Manbrew was crowdsourced with some help from our friends at Scoutmob. They call the mustache a “Flavor Savor” for a reason.

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.

Poured from the tap at the Distillery in Savannah, Georgia. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly ginger. The taste follows the nose. A very good beer, i think it would score higher if the amount of ginger used was cut back a little to allow the traditional witbier flavors to be more pronounced.

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.
