A - Looks very good for a Witbier. Not particularly cloudy, which might be the only thing that would give it more points in my book. Beautiful color; head residue was surprisingly clean on the glass.
S - Clean, but unremarkable. I couldn't detect any specific Witbier notes; a general aroma of citrus, but that was about it.
T - Bright, forward on the tongue. Citrus, of course; no typical banana flavors, though. Honestly, this is probably the simplest Allagash I've tried. That's not to say the taste is bad at all. It's a very price-accessible example of the genre, just nowhere near the best.
M - Forward on the tongue and in the mouth. A little light.
O - A very good beer, but not the best example of its class. If you like Witbiers and Weissbiers, try it out. I often keep a Bavarian Weissbier on hand, and this ranks above some of them, below others. Also probably my least favorite Allagash. It also happens to be one of their lightest offerings, flavor-wise.
I've tried this both in Spiegelau tulip and wheat beer glasses. I recommend the wheat beer glass - but I also recommend drinking this in the Summer (preferably on a porch or deck).
I'm going to have to retry this beer in the Summer, because in a CT "Spring," it just isn't what I want. That shouldn't be a slam on the beer; I want something thicker, slower, maltier. It's still a very tasty beer.
