Beer carbonated very well. Color and haze was spot on. Aroma was citrus and fruit. The beer took on a BlueMoon flavor due to the coriander DH. Added a slice of orange to a glass and it was very enjoyable. Definitely a repeat


Brewdog333Nice Witbier recipe....... Brewdog333

23152Thanks. Yeah the beer came out really good. I didn't keg it though. I usually do, but I wanted some of that yeasty goodness in the beer so I cold crashed it at 45DF as opposed to 34DF for 24 hours and then filled it into 22 oz bottles. I'm happy I did it this way.

Brewdog333I also like the 22oz bottles so I can share with a friend when they stop by. Or it makes for a nice big glass of beer for myself. My New Moon recipe came out better than blue moon or shock top and have been working on it for 3 plus years. Cheers!
