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.

the flagship beer for allagash, i have been drinking this one for as long as i can remember. i do like it better from the bottle than the tap though, an uncommon theme for me personally. it pours a real cloudy pale yellow color with an inch of soapy white head. hold the orange slice please, this isn't a schocktop. aromas of orange zest and light coriander seed waft up, but so does a nice bitter hopping and a density of wheat malt that is quite pronounced. the taste is the best of the nose, with the orange being subtle, sweet, and acidic. the body is full for the style, which i really like, and the Belgian yeast strain is just right for this brew. probably the best version of this style brewed in the entire untied states, certainly one of them. this is a staple beer for me, but i think it gets watery or contaminated via tap sometimes. the bottles are always perfectly carbonated, but the draft is hit or miss in my experience. it was epic on tap at the brewery though, so fresh and bright. this beer is an all around winner.
