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 had this at a local restaurant. This beer seems to be everywhere now. Unfortunately this came with an orange wedge. I would really appreciate it to have my beer without a fruit salad.

The look is very good for the style. It is golden with a lot of cloudyness. There wasn't much head, but that is probably due to the bartender.

The flavor is clean and refreshing. You get the wheat presence and a little bit of banana.

The mouthfeel is very good. I could drink this beer all day.

Side note: my waiter said that this is like a better version of Blue Moon. I agreed saying that Allagash has sould, and Blue Moon is made in enormous batches by Coors. I added that they sell Blue Moon as the non-challenging alternative to better made whites.

4.11/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Tasted On: 07-10-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Tulip
Purchased: Received in a trade

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!
