August 23, 2007 -- About a year ago, New Belgium Brewing entered the realm of organic beer making with the aptly named Mothership Wit. Although it's been available to tasters at the Mothership (the beloved nickname of the brewery in Ft. Collins) and a few other chosen markets, it has recently been rolled out to all existing markets.

"With Mothership, we wanted to make something truly Belgian, but with our own twist," said Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. "Going organic with this beer is in keeping with our efforts to produce beer in an environmentally friendly fashion. As an added bonus, the beer tastes great."

Mothership Wit Organic Wheat Beer 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.

New Belgium's roll out of Mothership began in the Pacific Northwest and swept into California, with great success along the coast. Mothership Wit is one of the three initial brews (in the company of Fat Tire and 1554) to enter New Belgium's newest markets Iowa and Minnesota.

Beer lovers can find most or all of the New Belgium line in Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arkansas, California, Minnesota and Illinois.
