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'll drink this one whenever I'm in the mood for a white ale. It's not my favorite style, but Allagash does a damn good job with this. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Looks like your standard white ale with a lacy head. The perfect 110 degrees-and-I-need-a-beer beer.

The smell of this one is interesting - as the bottle says, this is a spicy beer. There's some lemon in there too which adds a great dimension to the brew. You know it's going to be refreshing before you take your first sip.

Taste wise, it's very crisp. In small amounts, its very lemony. A larger sip brings out the other, spicy flavors. Theres a bit of orange peel in there too. As I said before, I'm not a big fan of the white ales but this is quite tasty.

I'm not sure I would drink a bunch of these at once, but for those hot summer days this would be perfect. Drinkability would be a bit higher if I was more of a fan of this style.
