COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White delicately balances full flavor with a crisp, refreshing taste and subtle hints of spice. Naturally cloudy, bottled with yeast.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Poured a cloudy, light yellow with a white-brerad looking head that diminished rather quickly. The nose was spicy with coriander, clove, and a touch of citrus and banana. The taste started with a great balance of orange/lemon notes. Coriander and white pepper notes join in the middle, along with some slightly tropical fruit, like banana, and then a little clove. The end brings a mild hop smack and fairly dry champagne like finish. The mouthfeel was medium. The balance was remarkably dead on. An excellent wit that is well rounded in flavor with a nice spicinesse to it. Definately worth a try. A great example of an American Wit!

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 (Bottle) Yellow body, clearish but then cloudy w/ addition of swirled yeast from bottom of bottle. Fluffy white head. Good lacing. Nose is wheat malt, spices, hint of sour. Flavorful - wheaty and spicy with a lemony zing. Mouthfeel clean and refreshing. UPDATE 7/13/13: Having had this beer on draft numerous times, I have to uptick it. Beautifully balanced and spiced, excellent witbier I’m lucky to have easy access to. Rating shown represents an average of initial and current number.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Pours cloudy yellow with no lasting head. Aroma of wheat and spice, tastes a little watery with appropriate citrus and spice notes. Refreshing but a little unrefined.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - OCT 22, 2005
On tap. Not a bad witbier, though I have had better. It pours a very hazy white, with a small, quickly dissipating head. There are some nice lemon tones with a yeasty aftertaste. The problem is an almost unmistakable hint of Pine Sol, which really just dampened the spirit of this beer for me. Not bad, but not the best.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - OCT 18, 2005
12 oz bottle. I tell you what ... this is every bit as good as Hoegaarden. The aroma might be a little weak when it’s cold, but when it warms up, it releases copious amounts of citrus, yeast and spice (corriander mostly). Sweet and fruity mouthfeel. Wheaty, yeasty and citrus-y flavor. Excellent beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Pours hazy yellow with a mid-sized white head. Coriander, yeast, and wheat in the aroma. The yeast is more noticeable in the flavor than in that of a Hoegaarden. Good, but doesn’t beat Hoegaarden on drinkability.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2005
On tap at The Village Tap. Poured a cloudy yellow. Had orange and banana aromas. Was a bit thin in the palate. I expected a little more, but all in all a good, easy drinking beer.

Tmoney99 (11586) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle 12 oz. Hazy amber with moderate rocky white head that diminished quickly. Medium wheat aroma with smooth texture. Medium sweet wheat flavor witha small sweet finish.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2005
12oz. bottle. Hazy yellow/golden color with a large white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus and yeast. Flavor was on the sweet side, with a lot of coriander, some lemon and oranges. Not bad.

Franziskaner is better for the price. This is good, just a little overdone (too much orange peel?) for me.
