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.

This is always a great go to. The Allagash Brewing company gets the lemon/citrus/coriander combination perfect. Made true to form all from the aroma to the soapy dishwater appearance. I only wish they would package them in 6 packs as opposed to 4s. Regardless, this is still one of my all time favorites!
