A: Fluorescent yellow like the first urination after a Vitamin B pill.

S: Funky yeast, grass, and coriander.

T: Like the smell: yeast, grass, and coriander wrapped in sweet wheat and a touch of pure bitter from the hops.

M: Thin, crisp at times, yet slightly cloying.

O: It's good for the style, just a bit simple and sweet.

A powerhouse Belgian wheat beer!

Pours a cloudy yellow with a decent head.
Taste begins with the traditional Belgian spices and finishes with strong, assertive wheat that lingers exactly like it should. This style of beer is one of my favorites and Allagash did a fantastic job. Clean, crisp, refreshing...traditional done right!

Allagash White pours a cloudy yellow color, with no head. There is an aroma filled with cloves and Belgian spices. The taste was similar, good clove flavors, lots of Belgian spices and candy flavors. Good full flavor, not overpowering, and good feel. Overall its a very nice drinking beer.
