3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma gives off all the usual suspects that you could find in a delightful witbier. Coriander, orange peel, and some light grain malt. Appearance is hazed and not easily visible through gold with a white topping of head. Flavor is semi sweet with hints of lemon shavings and dashes of coriander. Impressive white ale.

smells sweet and citrussy. murky yellow body with thin white head. Tastes sweet and citrussy with just a hint of hops and alcohol. A very decent beer. A belgian that’s accessable and not overwhelming. I am very impressed. Of course, I wouldn’t expect less from by far one of the best Maine breweries.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly no lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Yeasty nose. Starts with more yeast than anything, looking for spices - they are subtle, quiet finish needs more crispness. $1.70 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

12 oz bottle-Poured a cloudy yellow color w/a moderate white head. Yeasty, grassy, doughy, spicey aroma. Spicey up front flavor, citrus/lime, doughy, bread like-it’s a wheat beer!

12 fl oz bottle. Yellowish white and hazy. Medium sized white head that clings to the glass. Light aromas with pepper corns and yeast. Spices are subtle indeed. Soft and really mellow mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle Batch #29
Aroma: Yeasty and wheaty odor wih a hint of citrus. You definitely knew you were going to be drinking a White beer with this scent.
Appearance: Hazy straw orange in color. Not as much sedimenation as I expected with the pouring instructions on the label but that was fine. Head was frothy and rocky white bubbles with some lacing that sustained nicely.
Flavor: Yeasty and wheaty like the odor suggested with the orange peel coming through at the end. The coriander was very subtly noted which blended together gave it a bit of a bubble gum taste.
Palate: Thin mouthfeel that did not linger overly long but the different flavors coming through after swallowing was pleasant.
Overall: Quality beer again from Allagash which is a brewery I am growing more fond of with each sampling.
