Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

Appearance - Poured a bubbly, half inch, off-white head. The beer is somewhat cloudy and has a golden yellow color to it. Some carbonation can be seen through the haze and a smidgen of lacing is retained on the glass.

Aroma - Banana, orange zest lead the charge for the fruity side, and coriander, a touch of vanilla add the spice characteristics to the beer. All play well off each other to form a well-balance, flavorful smelling witbier.

Taste - With every sip, you taste the fruit (banana, orange) and the spice (coriander, vanilla). Very delicious!

Mouthfeel - Light body, carbonated, clean, crisp, and refreshing.

Overall - One of my go-to local favorites. Perfect for anytime of the year (specifically summer though) and usually can be found when in a bind at a non craft beer bar. It is not only a refreshing and thirst quenching witbier but also light and flavorful at the same time. Another win for Allagash!

An allagash white was brought home for me from the girlfriend!

A- white pours a hazy yellow that is very light and faded in color. A strong head that quickly recides

S- pears, tartness, citrus, with the Belgian yeasty scent. Very appealing and mouth watering

T- delicious ripe corrieander and wheat shine with a refreshing fruit taste that meshes well with the yeasty flavors. So refreshing that I could drink this all day

M- smooth and crisp flavor

O- best witbier I have ever had. Crisp and tart with flavor and completely on point with the bready yeast flavor that coincides

An enjoyable, drinkable witbier. Quite a bit of fizz to it with a short-lived head, some banana and definite yeast notes and the wheat prominent. Very light on the spice and citrus notes - just enough to make it fun. Aroma and flavor similar. Typical tan/gold/slight haze appearance. Easy drinking, good session beer? Can picture sittin’ on the back porch in the rocking chair with a bucket o' these.
