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.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pours a cloudy golden orange with lots of sediment. Head is large and white. Aroma is the typical citrus/coriander taste of a white beer. Taste is well balanced. Mild taste of citrus and spice with a very dry finish.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2005
The color was dark whiteish yellow. Very thin head. No aroma. Not all that hoppy but it was very smooth.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Aroma of coriander, slight hint of white pepper, mild lemony citrus, notable wit yeast. Appears a pale straw color with noticeable suspended yeast but with very litle true haze; minimal white head that dissipates. Flavor is mildly spicy, mildly citrusy, but not particularly bold as a wit goes. Palate is thin and watery, light even by wit standards. Overall this beer is somewhat disappointing but still serviceable, and it is slightly less than the sum of its parts.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Has the hot dog water smell I associate with authentic Belgian Witbier. Lemon fruit yellow with a two finger thick white head. Lots of coriander yeasty wheat notes. Mild citrus spritziness in the finish. That finish is also dry and somewhat tart. Decent Witbier.

I drink Allagash when I go to my favorite pizza place in State College. It doesn’t amaze me, but it’s decent. I’d rather have Hoegaarden if it’s available, but if not, I settle for Allagash. If you want a white, ok, you drink this before Blue Moon (or don’t drink Blue Moon at all!)

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 14, 2005
12 oz bottle. Yellow pour with a slight haze, small white head. Nose is wheat and a touch of coriander. Flavor is weighted more toward the wheat than the coriander. Crisp finish. Best non-Belgian white I’ve tasted.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 30, 2005
cloudy white with little head. smells of coriander and banana. smooth palate with no alcohol hint. a little wheaty and sour. small bottle to have active yeast fermantation.

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.
