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.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 My limited experience with Allagash products has been a bit hit or miss in my pleasure. I was intrigued by their wit however.+++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle the beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was a pleasant mix of sour, tangy, spicy, and wheat. The flavor was dry spice and wheat with a hint of citrus. Overall a reasonable interpretation of the wit style containing all the elements expected, though not managing to really stand out from the crowd.

This is probably the best Wit Iíve had, and its not a style I really love. Color is dead on for style with a very pale, hazy color and nice full head. Nice wheaty, citrusy flavor and very refreshing. Nice to have this back in IL

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.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2004
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 Druidís 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

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 wasnít half as good as other whiteís Iíve had. The aroma was decent and the flavor wasnít bad, but it wasnít anything special.

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.
