definite fruity/ citrus aroma like most whites. yeast still in suspension gives this beer a nice spicy flavor. didn't pour with much of a head, but still a solid beer

A cloudy pale yellow colour with absolutely no head. Very spicy smell, but that of a typical white. A flavourful and pleasant taste. Noticable spices and somewhat fruity with a good mesh of hops and malt. One of the best white's i've ever had!

Very pale yellow colour. Wonderful citrusy aroma with coriander and hops too. Flavour is very pleasant and refreshing; lightly fruity and hoppy with nice spicy palate. Fine Belgian Wit style beer, although I prefer them a bit fruitier.

Excellent Witbier - great find at the local liquor store. Clean citrusy aroma - fluffy - mustache sticking lacing head that does not go away. Spicy flavor that stays strong thoughout. Looking forward to more from this brewer - rare find for north Florida.

I declare, seems the Yanks and Canucks do Belgian better than the Belgians do. Between Allagash, Unibroue and Ommegang the pricepoint this side of the Atlantic isn't even a trade-off for quality. This has a nice spicey/fruity/vanilla/butterscotch aroma. Nice label (though bordering on the 'clip-arty') and Belgian 750 ml bottle, pear-gold beer with slightly off-white, pithy head. Light sediment. Absolutely delicious -- the elements in the aroma are matched by the flavour. Orange flavours and a not-unpleasant smidge of diacetyl. Batch # 4 whatever that means. Not terribly fizzy, but adequately bottle-carbonated with a thin but silky wheat palate. This really has me looking forward to the Allagash Tripel.

Slight re-rate: Corked bottle. Light,hazy,golden color with a thick,long lasting,bone-white head. One of the freshest and most inviting aromas Iíve ever experienced. Inviting,wheat,spice,fruit-yeasty aromas,little hoppiness as well.Palate is just slightly watery.Flavors are similar to aromas and are subtle.Yeast pour added more content to the experience. Overall,darn good.

Iím partial to Belgian Whites, but itís a good offering nonetheless from Allagash. Weak head, but solid color. Citrus taste hints towards the banana fermentation you might find in some saisons. The yeast is pleasingly mellowed compared to some others Iíve tried.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A sparkling wit but quite dull looking. This is basically a poor relation to Hoegaarden and Celis White. This is a bit soda-watery.
