DATE TASTED: December 22, 2013... GLASSWARE: Konig-Pilsener weizen...OCCASION: Browns/Jets--a meaningless game? Not for a fan!... APPEARANCE: hazily unfiltered, tawny yellow body exhibits slow, steady carbonation; thin white head settles quickly; some tracings.. AROMA: lively lemon zest, allspice and honey greets the nostrils--more than pleasant, even (especially?) in winter... PALATE: soft as falling snow with a fizz that sounds the same; light and cleansing--highly drinkable; a satisfying, lingering aftertaste...TASTE: slightly malt; damp lemongrass with some intriguing spiciness--pepper and allspice--delicious; yeasty enough to hold attention and round complexity... OVERALL: I liked this so much, I gifted my wife's uncle with some for Christmas--and he agreed that this white is as formidable as we've encountered...

Updating earlier review of bottled beer.
Had on tap at Allagash during tour. Had expected a bit of a ho hum...and was quickly surprised what a good beer this is. After decades of Hoegaarden, Celis, etc etc...I just wasn't looking to be wowed by another Wit. But this was a very well crafted smooth and delicious beer. May be it is just better to have something fresh...and on draft. Any way...really glad I had it here. Better understand why it's 3/4's of their sales too.

Over the past year, had 6 kegs of Allagash White, 1 keg of Allagash Black and a BBC Coffehouse Porter (very good) and we just can't shake Allagash White -- it's like crack cocaine!! This Christmas Eve we had family over with many wine drinkers and one older uncle who is sworn to Budweiser to the end of his days. Within an hour all were drinking Allagash White and asking for more. Need I say more?
