64oz growler from CBX, picked up during the Allagash event! Poured into the complimentary Allagash glass...
A: Cloudy, pale gold; one finger of cotton white head; leaves some thin webs of lace. Pretty much exactly what you’d expect from a witbier - but I was expecting a bit more head and lacing.
S: Fresh cracked grains; spicy yeast; zesty brightness / coriander.
T: Wheat; bready / slightly fruity yeast; white pepper; a hint of chalk, but minimal hop bitterness.
M: Light-medium body; high carbonation; crisp and refreshing.
D/O: A really nice, traditional Belgian witbier; very refreshing, smooth and easy drinking. Really good stuff. Takes 2nd place to Hitachino Nest White, but those two are head and shoulders above the rest!

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
