4.2/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: hazy light straw color with a finger of white foam head. Nice and light ... not sure what else to look for in a witbier.
Smell: nice and wheaty, citrusy and a little chalky. As far as citrus goes, the aroma tends more toward lemon than orange, and I don't get any of the coriander which is quite common in the style. There is also something else ... do I smell banana? It does smell quite refreshing.
Taste: extremely wheaty and refreshing. Citrus still abounds with a tip to the lemon, though I do taste a little bit of coriander here. Truth be told, this tastes more like a good hefeweizen than a witbier. Still, quite tasty.
Mouthfeel: lightish-medium body with a good level of carbonation. Not a ton of creaminess, but the overall experience is quite smooth.
Drinkability: the strong point of Allagash White. While I feel like it was more of a hefeweizen than a witbier, I still find it extremely refreshing and drinkable. I would session tons of this stuff were it not so pricey.
Serving type: bottle

09/19/11 At Rattle n Hum, NYC. Hoped this would live up to the hype. The claim that it is a 'bucket list' brew
Since Real Beer drinkers will live forever, there ain't no bucket list', but to consider oneself a real beer drinker, make sure you try this before you pay your last tab.
Worth more than these words.
Serving type: on-tap
