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.
