Bottle. Hazy light yellow with big explosive foamy white head & floaties. Initial aroma is hoppy with nutmeg spiciness coming through, and some orange julius. Flavor is hoppy with biscuity malt, some earthiness and a hint of yeast. Very nice

Curiously metallic tasting on the intial taste, this one smooths out to a gentle sweetish sipper. Spicy! A bit heavier than some wheats, but it is a BELGIAN style wheat so I guess that is to be expected. another fine beer from Allagash.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 This is a good witbier. It pours a golden straw color with two fingers of white head and has nice lacing. It has a strong citrus smell (lemons). The taste is very good with the citrus and spice complementing each other nicely. One of my favorite witbiers.

Not the biggest fan of witbiers, but this one was pretty solid. Spices were not overdone. Cloudy golden yellow with huge white head. Aromas were clove, orange, almonds, and vanilla. Yeast was also big. Flavor had a good yeast backbone with a good mix of the previously mentioned spices.

Well done Belgian wheat...with wheat grain/citric aroma. Fruitiness and new mowed hay flavor components. Bit of hoppy bite in the finish. Very strong yeast flavors as well.

Bottle poured yellow with lots of hazy, and a good yeast nose. Aroma also had some spice. I do not know if I truly dislike this style, but I did not like this.

Draft. A great-smelling witbier, with coriander and nutmeg spice, lots of yeast, and lemon citrus accompanying grain and a light caramel malt nose. On the palate, the beer is long-lasting and fresh-tasting. Apricot and hopcit, with a complementary tandem of hop and malt. Also spice on the tongue, and the "white" flavors of yeast and wheat with a full mouthfeel. An excellent example -- from America!

Bomber, batch 16: Sugary and sweet aromas with some spiciness there as well. Flavor was that of big oudoors, hay fields, sweet citrus abounds. Smooth and full mouthfeel, finishes with strong citrus.
