Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 12-oz bottle (no date) into a hi-ball glass.

Appearance: Hazy and pale, with low carbonation and a towering white head. Settles fairly quickly and only leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass. This may have been a result of the glass that I'm using so I may revise this.

Smell: Lemony citrus with plenty of peppery spiciness from the yeast and the coriander.

Taste: Flavorful, juicy lemon with an earthiness lent by the yeast and plenty of the spices you can smell. I really appreciate how the malt balances out the grassy, citrus bitterness in this beer, leaving a tang in the mouth rather than the sourness that some other wits leave. Carbonation and a little bit of alcohol adds a warming, tingly parting shot. Tanginess lingers in the mouth, or maybe it's just watering because I want another.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, and refreshing without being watery.

Overall: This is an excellent beer, and should give anyone who is thinking about shelling out the extra cash for an import a serious reason to pause. Drink (more) local: the Allagash brewers show themselves more than capable of making excellent Belgian style beers.
