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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A=Pours a golden straw color with a wispy head, surprisngly opaque despite the light color
S=Orange, lemon, citrus hops, a lot of yeast
T=Citrus notes dominate the palate, with some orange, lemon, ,yeast and heavy spicing, weak aftertaste I'm actually a bit disappointed in this one
M=light bodied and crisp, feels excellent washing around in the mouth
D=goes down easily and smoothly, creating a gentle warming sensation

Not bad, but I was expecting more after seeing all the reviews.

Had this one up in the sleepy little town of Sylva, NC.

A - It pours into a pint glass a semi-cloudy pale yellow. Head quickly fades into a fairy ring. A bit of lacing.

S - The nose is a bit light but one can detect wheat, some spices, and floral hops.

T - I'm disappointed. I base most of my witbier reviews from my perceptions of Hoegaarden and Wittekerke. To me this beer falls short. I can barely detect the spices or citrus in the beer and part of this is due to an unusual high level of hops for this style. To me, it comes off as watery and hoppy / grassy.

M - A light mouthfeel and a bit biting.

D - I don't think I'm going to repeat this one.

On tap at Alamo Drafthouse Lake Creek. Served a hazy yellow-orange with not quite a finger of white head. Aroma is fairly light--lemon, coriander, and wheat, with citrus most present. Tasted the same, all flavors unoffensive but not standout either. Mouthfeel was light in body, to style, with a little spicy finish. While I certainly could drink a few of these, nothing excited me enough to want to have more than the first.

While I expected a lot from Allagash White, each category just screamed average to me. Maybe I'll try it bottled next time, but I wouldn't seek out this wit again on tap.

Appearance is a very light cloudy yellow color similar to that of a lemonade. Head is white and creamy about 1/4" remains throughout the session. Smells of sweet fruit, bananas with some coriander or orange peels. Taste is sweet with somewhat of a peppery finish with an orange like taste being the most dominant flavor. Mouthfeel is light and dry. Drinkability is pretty high as alcohol is light but this is an easy drinking great summer beer.
