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.

Allagash White is a somewhat boring witbier. There is nothing wrong with it and it makes a good session beer but don't expect a flavour explosion or anything. Had on tap at ChurchKey.

A: Cloudy orange colour and a crappy head. 4

S: Boring chlorine aroma. 3

T: Yeast and slight sourness. Spicy finish. 3.5

M: Fizzy. 3

O: 4

a – pale yellow with a substantial head

s – Strong notes of citrus and coriander

t – The citrus smells come through in the taste, overall a sweet tasting Belgian wheat, no bitterness to the hops

m – Medium bodied, feels substantial and refreshing at the same time

o – Overall great belgian wheat beer for those who tend to like mild, fruitier notes

Pretty golden color with tons of sediment floating all around the beer, definitely looks the part. Big coriander aroma, ugh, reminiscient of Bruery's Imperial Orchard White, in that it was huge, this is about the first thing I've ever had from Allagash that was huge in a beer other than the price.

A sizeable and respectable wheat quotient to the flavor, more coriander gets in the way. Jeez, that's what you go all in with huh? Kind of bitter too, probably the only time a beer owes any of that to the immense coriander presence instead of hops. Taste of some other type of spice that should be used sparingly in anything, especially beer for the most part.

I dunno how they get away with charging the prices they do for some of their beers. Outside of the massive coriander dosage, the beer is only slightly better than the BMC type of clone beers aimed at this type of market.
