Amazingly refreshing and delicious on tap. Drank out of the 16oz Allagash chalice. Looks beautifully yellow golden cloudy with huge lingering fluffly white head. Perfect balance between light belgian yeast esters and lemony, earthy, peppery, spicy, and other fruity flavors and aroma. Mouthfeel is flawless - great carbonation and body to the beer. This is great any time of the year but particularly fitting for a hot summer day.

Appearance - clear straw body with white head

Smell - lemon, coriander, ginger, clove

Taste - much the same as the smell - lemon, ginger, clove, coriander, lemongrass

Mouthfeel - medium body, medium plus carbonation, citrus upfront, spices in the back end. Refreshing

Overall - nice beer here, crisp refreshing, good flavor. Worth a shot

Price Point - $7.99/ 4pk 12 oz bottles

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
