4.58/5 rDev +10.4%
Appearance: Hazy but mostly clear, light yellow color - starts off with a large white head, fades quickly, leaves many streaks of lacing
Smell: Allagash's signature Belgian yeast, plenty of spices, and citrus - clove, banana, and bubblegum, balanced and in moderation - a nice level of spiciness overall - sweet orange flesh and orange peel - pale malts underneath
Taste: Refreshing and nicely balanced - lightly sweet, very pale malts, a slight wheat flavor - Belgian yeast (hints of clove, banana, bubblegum), and some light spiciness, floral notes - tangerines and orange peels, maybe some lemon - very clean
Mouthfeel: Very light, yet extremely smooth - nicely carbonated, finishes remarkably clean, extremely easy to drink
Overall: King of the wit mountain?
Allagash White was the first witbier I ever had. I've had a number of witbiers in the past few years, but nothing has ever topped this. It's not my favorite style, but this is absolutely the best I've ever had of this style. Hence, a 5 overall.

This pours a cloudy straw gold color with thin foam. Big yeasty and estery aroma that has some coriander, orange peel & floral notes. This has a pleasurably crisp and estery flavor that’s light and delicate with a wheated sweetness on the palate. Definitely enjoyable and a steal for the price.

A-cloudy yellow with a thin white head
S-slightly tangy Belgian whites. Lot of lemony citrus. Medium strength
T-comes in with a great taste of citrusy Belgian wheats. Extremely crisp! Lemon and corny grains. It's a good taste. High quality ingredients with a bold flavor.
M-crisp medium carbonation with a good crisp finish.
O-not sure if I can think of a better beer on a hot summer day. It's so refreshing, quite amazing for a witbier. Definitely much better than the others I've had.
