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.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow in color with a thin white head and mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hints of cloves, wheat, and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of cloves, wheat, and hops. Typical Witbier, Belgium White, Whites, or Hefeweizen type beer.

Overall: Decent brew, I would have this one again, but it is not my first choice.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a cloudy, golden-straw with a finger's worth of foam. No lacing to speak of. Appealing in color but otherwise not that impressive to look at. Yeast-forward on the nose, the Belgian strain lending typical notes of clove and aspirin bottle. Some light citrus notes. Some coriander is detectable, a commonly used spice in witbiers.

Light and dry in flavor, with the yeast providing a range of flavors. More clove, plus banana. Light, citrusy bitterness mid-palate to the finish. Very light in terms of malt flavor as with many wheat beers, just a cracker-like base. Mouthfeel is kind of a let down, as I feel it's a bit undercarbonated while also being kind of prickly at the same time.

While Allagash White is lauded as a top beer in the style, it didn't impress me all that much. It's a nice, light, refreshing beer, but nothing more.
