Wheat beers are not really my fav style, but I'm trying to find a place for them. These kids are a good start, and are perfect for hot summer weather.
Pours a pasty white fizzy fluffy 1+ finger head fades semi slowly with tons of soapy lacing, fairly hazy golden pilsner like color.
Nose lots of wheat, Belgian sweet malt characters but white malts, wit like spices with faint coriander like, touch of citrus and orange peel light Belgian wit like yeast aromas.
Taste brings more of the same but first some light esters from the yeast, bit of a pear and light apple like, then wit flavours, lots if wheat, light spices with coriander again, faint orange peel and citrus zest, a light bready toasty biscuit like wheat too. Finish is drier but a bit sticky, lingering citrus zest, coriander, and what flavors, nice lingering citrus slightly spicy hop bitterness.
Mouth is med to lighter bod but nice fluffy carb.
Overall nice Belgian wit like beer, pretty typical though but nothing too special. Still a tasty beer made in the USA, a nice Belgian wit. Again, not really my fav style either but hits well in the hot summer heat wave we're in.

Pours a golden yellow and is slightly cloudy. Its got a citrus type of fruity smell and taste to it. Reminds me of a good ole summer ale. Crisp and refreshing. Definitely a beer that I will go back to in the future. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall its a really good beer and lives up to the hype of it being one of Allagash's favorites.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a hazy light yellow gold with a white head on top. Some small visible carbonation as well as sediment in stasis in the body. Spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: Real nice belgian qualities as soon as you take a sniff. Solid yeast profile along with the orange peel and coriander. Wheat comes through giving it a grain like quality.
T: Balanced mix of malt, yeast and fruit character in this one. Starts off with a pale malty flavor mixed with a slight banana. Mild orange comes in to pay a visit but doesn't overpower. Light hopping adds just a touch of bitterness. Backend lingers with banana like yeast.
M: Light on the tongue despite feeling creamy on the mouthfeel side of things. Crisp and very refreshing finishing that is clean and not muddled.
Overall this is really a perfect example of the style. Very easy drinking beer that retains a complex flavor profile. Top of its class.
