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 finally got my west coast hands on some Allagash (dubbel and tripel to follow) and am most impressed with the first sample. It pours a hazy yellow that's reminiscent of a refreshing glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade. The foamy white head settles a bit but leaves traces on top and sticking around the edges of the glass. Going along with the lemon appearance is a very nice citrus smell with just a trace of spice. The taste is sour but not overwhelmingly sour and as smooth as silk. After giving this a try on its own, I used it to wash down some tortilla chips and spicy salsa and it really worked well. I'm looking forward to resampling this on a hot summer afternoon.

4.58/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.

S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.

T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.

M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.

O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
