I feel a need to rant. Why is this called a witbier, when other totally different beers like Leinie's Sunset Wheat and Sam Adams White Lantern are also called witbiers? They are totally different! Why does Allagash White claim to be flavored with coriander and orange peel, when the only detectable flavor is of putrefaction? The aforementioned brews are delightful to drink and taste of coriander and orange peel, but Allagash White gives only the sensation of drinking roadkill. This is exactly what you should expect from open fermentation.
(See my treatise on Leffe Blonde for an easy and cheap way to make beers of this type.)
In short, the horrible flavor of this percolating yeast sewage may haunt my taste memory for the rest of my miserable life unless I can drink enough IPAs and lagers to wash it away.

Not one of my favorets It poured nice, looking good in the glass. Nice cloudy head didn't stick around that long. A pale amber/yellow hue hazy. Good color, nice looking beer. Kind of short on taste not much going on a little spicy a bit of citrus Smokey fruit. The aftertaste was too much a little winey, I didn't care for it and found it hard to finish I wouldn't recommend this one!
