Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with almost no head. Smells a little sour and has a mild sour taste. Quite a bit of carbonation like a soda. Can barely taste any coriander. 23oz draft $9.50 @Legals Test Kitchen @ Boston Logan Airport Terminal A.

Serving Type: "Tall" Draught @ Olive Garden in South Portland, ME

L- Hazy pale yellow with a 1/2 finger white head. Good retention with light lacing.

S- Coriander, zesty orange, and a light wheat note combine for a beautiful aroma.

T- Very pleasant flavours of Wheat, coriander, and orange. Perfect amount of spice and orange. Finish is a nice dank hop flavour. Well balanced taste.

F- Medium body with moderate carbonation. Perfect for the style.

O- An American Witbier that can punch it's weight with the best of the best from Europe.

Enjoyed on a tap at the Green Growler in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.

Citric but dry, slight dank cannabis notes. Very pretty in the glass. Nice aroma. Medium mouthfeel.

This is the best witbier I've had in the US by far. It reminds me of the beers I've drunk in Europe, so Allagash did well in keeping with the Belgian style.

S: Light, pleasant aroma
T: Has just the right amount of spice & slightly fruity
F: Good body & very refreshing

Bottled 11/9/17, consumed 4/14/18

L: Hazy light straw with a nice head that had great retention and left decent lacing.

S: A balanced mix of grains, grass, spice, and a tiny bit of citrus fruit.

T: Follows aroma, more citrus here.

F: Medium, great carbonation, smooth & delicate feel. Very clean and dry.

O: I don't drink a lot of witbiers, but I think this is the best one I've had. Had it in a flight lineup with Shock Top, Blue Moon, and 1664 Blanc. Obviously it killed. Seem like this would be another perfect meal beer.

poured from a bottle into a 13ish oz pilsner glass


look: pale yellow and hazy. very thin white head with good retention. noticeable carbonation and good lacing.

smell: grassy with a very slight spice to it.

taste: starts off almost like an american pilsner but then spices and a very slight fruitiness come in. somewhat hoppy but nice and refreshing.

feel: medium bodied, but on the lighter side. effervescent with a nice slick feeling.

overall: i quite like this beer. it's easily drinkable and quite refreshing, with great flavor. i would definitely buy this again.
