Beer Profile: Mothership Wit
Mothership Wit (Fort Collins, Colorado) – 5.9% ABV: New Belgium Brewing Company has always been an innovator and has done more than any other American brewer to popularize Belgian-style beers. Now New Belgium has brought out a new "wit," or white beer that is taking America by storm. Mothership Wit elevates the zesty Wit or White beers of Belgium with wheat malt, coriander and orange peel spicing—all of which are organically grown. The Mothership experience begins with a cloudy, pale yellow appearance capped by a creamy white head. Next is the alluring, slightly spicy, floral nose. The refreshing taste is the result of a gravitational balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation. If you like white beers, this will soon be a favorite.
