3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours pale yellow, almost white, somewhat hazy, small fizzly white head, spotty lacing, with virtually no carbonation. Aroma of curacao and orange peel, slight american wheat ale aroma. Forwardly spicey, slight citrus, good wheaty mouthfeel. Just the right amount of spices in this one to make it well balanced. Finishes with a slight orange peel flavor. Probably my favorite Wit next to Vuuve, not overly spicey but yet full of flavor.

On tap at The Gate. Poured a cloudy yellowish/white with a yeasty/lemony aroma. Taste was also yeasty and lemony. A very light beer, decent but not great.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2005 12 oz bottle. Zesty wit/white beer true to the style. Another excellent Allagash product.
Sampled again on draft at the Druid’s Keep. This time, I was overwhelmed by the lemony zest.

Cloudy brew that is a bit yellow. A smooth flavor that is good to enjoy. Lemon maybe in the taste

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Judging by the rating, this beer hasn't gotten any better with age. The first raters were full of praise and now it's lucky to see better than 14 overall. This wasn’t half as good as other white’s I’ve had. The aroma was decent and the flavor wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml batch #7 - Pours a hazy golden with orange hues. The head is a quickly collapsing foamy white affair. Lemon aroma predominates, also a fair amount of spices and yeast. Surprisingly bitter, hops play a bigger part int his Wit than I am used to. Lemon is subdues bitterness is realitively high. Crisp medium-light body. A nice Wit, I like the bitterness.

To me this beer smelled and tasted very soapy. A very light beer that goes down easy, but just tastes not so good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
White head, medium retention. Body is clear, yellow. Aroma is slightly belgian, pale malt? Medium body on the lighter side. Light taste of wheat, not much belgian flavor. A little bit of a let down.
