Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

I don't know if I would label this is a white, so I am not going to dock it any points for stylistic impuritires. Banana, clove and citrus were quite evident in the aroma and quite balanced. I could see where some people would not appreciate the balance in the beer that is IMO it's strongest point. Soft coriander and zest are quite evident but blend nicely with the sweet wheat flavors. Color was a cloudy yellow that, depending on pour, could clear up nicely. Finish is quick and easy... on the light side but this adds to it's drinkability. High quality brew. Look forward to trying some more Allagash brews.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured from the bottle into a Weizen glass. Body is slightly cloudy, straw-yellow in color with a small (just under 1-finger) white head.

S: Sugar-cookie dough malt, hint of spice and a good amount of lemon zest.

T: Light malt foundation - sugar-cookie-dough again comes to mind, along with a touch of wheat twang - then modest coriander spice, which is followed by lemony drying bitterness and a touch of fruit (probably the orange peel I'm getting).Finishes almost like lemonade - the fresh-squeezed, light-on-the-sugar and somewhat diluted kind.

M: Light-to-medium in heft; modest carbonation. Finishes clean and refreshing.

O: This is a good version of the style. Make that an excellent version of the style. It brings to mind those original Wits (anyone remember Wit! or was it W!T from the 90s?) I had oh-so-long ago.
