Served in the 12 oz. bottle. The color is golden, unfiltered and cloudy, with a wisp of white head. Smell is very yeasty with the wheat and clove smell. The taste is dominated by the wheat, much more so than other wits, with hints of spicing. Mouthfeel is VERY well carbonated. Drinkability-wise, could definitely have a few more.
Not my favorite witbier, but certainly a good one. Hopefully, this will be the first of many Allagash reviews. I may well have this wit again.

3.98/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: Typical hazy pale yellow color. Nothing notable about 1 finger semi-soapy head. Really poor retention and no signs of lacing, granted it was serve in a pint glass.
S: Banana, clove, graham cracker malts, coriander perfumes, but fruit esters seemed to dominate.
M: Lighter bodied and creamier feel, but still refreshing with a moderately high carbonation level. Dry, crisp, and tart finish is superb.
T: Considerably more complex than the aroma suggests. Banana and cloves, floral hops, scant lemongrass tartness, white pepper and coriander spicing, orange pith gives it a dry and tart character on the finish. Slight metallic, but a definite medicinal character builds as well.
Serving type: on-tap
