This is legitimately one of my favorite beers to drink come summertime. I put pen to paper (actually it was on my phone notebook) at the Westin in Boston on this review in May of 2011, but I had my first Allagash in college and have never looked back. The fruity crispness, corriander, slight spice, and hazy appearance make you long to be sitting on your deck in July. The only small qualm I have with this beer is the mouthfeel, which is awfully soft, even for a witbier. Absolutely outstanding.
