Best Belgian White I've had. Normally I stick to other categories, but I always stock this, as guests love it.

Easy to drink, tasty, and refreshing. What a beer is supposed to be for our taste. We will buy more at sometime after more exploring. At this time, Allagash is our favorite brewery. Purchased at Eastham Superette.

Poured from tap into shaker, 1 finger head, recedes to a pool rather quickly, but epic lacing. Pal hazy yellow in the glass. Smells of citrus, clove and Belgian esters. Taste is clove and coriander on the front with a light malt sweetness, some citrus in the middle and a spicy, pepper finish. Wish I had access to this in Texas, outstanding wit

Wonderful hazy looking brew with a slight white head from tap at Chickie's and Pete's. Bready and yet somewhat spicy scent. Lemon and malt and some spice yum! Wonderful creamy and decently carbonated. Just good !

Decanted from a tap at Tanner Smith's at 204 W 55th St. in NYC into a conical pint glass.
A: Hazy straw color; quarter inch head that dissipates quickly, but demonstrative of very persistent Belgian lacing.
S: Lightly roasted malt with citrus and spice notes clearly evident.
T: Light malt blending with lemon and coriander/clove flavors.
M: Light and crisp; moderately persistent effervescence.
O: An exceptionally drinkable Wit. After this, will try other varieties from Allagash.
