A refreshing, if kind of thin beer. Itís body makes is very drinkable, which can be a nice quality for a belgian white on a hot day. Smells of lemons and yeast, cloudy pale gold color. Lots of lemon in the taste.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with tons of little floaties. Virtually no head. What little there is is white. Smell is yeasty and lemony. Very refreshing taste. Spicy and tangy with some staleness however. On the thin side. High carbonation gives it some bite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
All the standard witbier characteristics are there - some obvious spice from a pale golden beer with a thin white head. Yeasty and citrusy too. The lemon perhaps more than the orange, and the coriander wasnít as present as it could have been. Overall a nice beer - drinkable but not one that I would clamour to get.

Bottle. Batch 10. Pale golden straw with a white head. Yeasty aroma with wheat and some fruity spice. More wheat flavor and less yeast/spice than Iíd have thought. Crisp, dry some lemon and corriander, but just not enough going on. Still another disapointment from Allagash - itís a brewery that I want to like but just canít.

Great white, nice flavour of peppers and wheat with noticeable corriander. Slightly thin body but the flavour is very thirst quenching. A beer I could suck back all summer long.

750 ml, corked and caged. Pale yellow, cloudy with a thick white head. Aroma is massively spiced with coriander. A touch of sweet pipe tobacco. Flavour is quite spicy, coriander, yeasty clove. Body is a bit thin as well. A simple beer, but very well made.

Tap. Opaque and yeasty pour. Lemons and spices abound on the nose. LIght and refreshing. Very good. Finish is clean. Makes you want more.

Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Aroma was spicy, with bananas, oranges and lemons. Flavour was spicy, bready, orange citrus. Medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with lingering spices.

Great clouded, murky yellow body under a thick white head with great lacing. Delicious spiciness, but with a surprisingly light, dry finish. Interesting.
