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.

Goblet from Hollingshead's Deli in Orange

Very light color with a see through white head

Super light beer from Allagash

Could probably drink ten of these at a sitting

Good price for 750 ml bottles most of the time, about six bucks and worth the money

Tasted more like a pale ale rather than a wheat beer

Faint fruity aroma and taste, but too light to stand out

Would be a good session beer, but would get prciey after a while

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.

S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.

T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.

M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.

O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
