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.

Very strong flavor. Best used for cooking. Made a braised chicken dish and a kielbasa with apples recipe that was out of this world. I tend to enjoy milder tasting beers. This Allagash White was brewed with spices and was exactly what I was looking for in a cooking base.

Got this on tap at a Manhattan burger joint.

Poured to a slightly pale opaque orange color with little head--very nice to behold.

Smelled acidic, tangy and citrusy--it's about what I'd expect.

Tasted nice--slightly bitter to start with a smooth finish followed by a hint of sweetness. The citrus (especially orange) flavor comes out, and the bitterness is not overpowering.

For a white, it's unusually creamy and has substantial body, yet it's crisp and doesn't bite back. I'm happy with the mouthfeel.

Overall it's one of the better whites I've had--I'll enjoy this again.

12oz into a dfh glass

a exteremely light yelloe, a pale pale yellow. possiblay the lightest beer ive ever drank. very cloudy, small white head, dissipates fast. left a large white crown around the glass.

s lemons, yeast light grains

t very light taste. the beginning is fresh lemons that enters into a yeasty middle and end. the aftertaste is fresh grains. a very refreshing beer.

m thin and almost crisp. light prickly carbonation

o a great white beer. not my favorite style but it is very well done.
