A: Very cloudy pale straw, orange appears at the core if the glass is big enough, good loose bubbles visible. White 1-finger head is sticking around on my glass. Ambient loose particles sit in the body.

S: Ooh, that's good. Fragrant variety of fruits; I got some orange, pear, and cantaloupe, maybe even more going on here. Some mild spices, a pinch of white pepper and cinnamon even, some coriander, too.

T: Awesomely refreshing; all those fruits plus more- apples most notably. The spices are perfectly balanced. A touch of wheat. I love it.

M: Great carbonation adds some texture, the rest is refreshing and quenching, smooth.

O: Refreshing, crisp, thirst quenching. Incredible variety of fruits on the nose and palate with subtle spices to balance it perfectly. Makes me wish it was summer year-round. Great job, Allagash.

A - Has a 1/4 inch of head atop of a hazy bright yellow. mild sticky lacing to boot.
S - Mild hops, sweet grains, some coriander spice and obvious orange/lemon peel.
T - Grainy, sweet and balanced this beer is a great example of a Witbier mild orange peel and some hops. Tasty.
M - Light to medium on par with the style.

Overall for almost 4 bucks I can think of some cheaper offerings that match the quality. Kind of pissed since I ordered the Triple and got this but it's a tasty beer regardless.

Poured from the bottle into a stemless large wine glass...

A: Hazy/golden with a 1 finger head that disappears fairly quick, leaving residual lacing along the sides. Appeared lightly carbonated.

S: On the nose, the words that come to mind are - Light hops, citrus, spices and maybe some banana.

T: Citrus and grain hit me first, followed by spice, banana and a residual tartness (light). Crisp and refreshing.

M: Light and crisp with a light to medium mouthfeel.

O: To me, another good example of the style although I have other witbiers in mind that I think I like better. Definitely a good summer beer and very drinkable.
