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.

A: Cloudy light yellow in color, stunning, brilliant white head and killer lacing. A masterpiece unleashed out of the bottle.

S: Lemon, yeast, wheat.

T: Crisp and refreshing. Some of the combined smells above with some honey notes.

M: Light bodied, gulp factor hitting max level, carbonation is alive.

D: A session beer if there was any. Would recommend to fans of all styles, foes not included.

Golden cloudy colour with very fizzy, frothy head, that dissapates after awhile to the edges of the glass. Instructions on how to pour on the side of the bottle.

The smell is full of many things, including a tangy citrus, musty yeast, and some sort of spice I can't put my finger on.

The taste is smooth, but citrus tangy, with the yeast in full regal form. The flavours balance to make one smooth, fantastic brew. The spice lingers on the palate.

"BATCH # 3" the label states, though no date.

Poured into a standard pint, body is cloudy yellow/gold with a thick fluffy head. Substantial lace lines the glass and stays for the duration.

Aroma is that of pepper, corriander, wheat, lemon, and orange. Very spicy.

Just like the scent the flavor has a nice kick of spice. Pepper and corriander up front with a wheaty orange zest undertone. Feel is sharp and acidic, though smooth and silky. My first taste of Allagash, and no doubt not my last.

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

A: Poured from a bottle into a 6 oz sample glass, this presented a cloudy but radiant pale yellow color with a light and quickly disappearing head.

S: Notes of wheat and clove--a nice yeasty tone.

M/T: A crisp and lightly fizzy mouthfeel that gives way to a mellow wheat taste and a baked bread aftertaste.

D: Paired very well with a mild Indian dish of Chana Saag.

Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a modest head that dissipates quickly.

Spicy citrus aroma, very inviting.

Taste is well balanced and is a joy. Finish is the same with no off flavors, just a mellow easy drinking brew.

Pleasant carbonation, a refreshing and welcoming feel in the mouth.

Drinkability is great with the modest ABV and ease with which it goes down.
