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.

Pours a cloudy yellow, pretty vigourous white head. Slightly spicy aroma, also some citrus. Light bodied, nice rendition of a Belgian Witbier.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Bottle. A pretty straightforward Belgian wit. Cloudy-yellow, white head that clings to the glass. Wheaty, crisp, banana-clove, spiciness. Nice calm and somewhat dry finish. Solid stuff.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Color was golden yellow with light bubbles floating throughout the whole thing. Small diminishing head. Slightly foggy aroma of peanuts and vanilla. Very carbonated and light but has a certain spicy wheaty complexity.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2004
Decent appearing brew, pours cloudy yellow with medium egg white head that is retained. Aroma is pretty compelling. Notes of yeast, lots of spice, orange peel and coriandere. Flavor is a step down from the aroma. Flavor is nicely spicy, a bit light bodied. This one will go down very nicely on an August day in Texas. Not too heavy with some decent flavor.

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - JAN 27, 2004
1/27/04. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, obtained in a trade with igneous1 on RateBeer 1/21/04. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow color with very little head, quite a bit of carbonation on it. Thin and spotty but still pretty nice-looking lacing. Looks pretty thin too. Aroma is quite impressive for the appearance-- pretty bold and powerful, yeasty and wheaty with a delicate sweetness, a subtle peppery underscent, and a hint of banana. Taste is of a wheat beer with candi sugar added, a bit of vegetable (broccoli?), a little hop bite, and even some subtle hints of heavier malt notes. Medium-thin, smooth and buttery body, very nice mouthfeel. Finish is dry and plump, then falls to a strange lemony sourness after awhile. Can't say I enjoy the long flavor on the finish, but the rest of the characteristics of the beer are quite nice.

guzzler67 (1506) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Unfiltered straw color with a very small head. Faint spicy aroma with a hint of lemon. Lots of carbonation mixing it up with the fruits and spices in the taste. Dry, tart finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Pale yellow body with white head. Aroma of spices and citrus. Flavor was sweet and acidic. Nothing to write home about.

stasyh (4) - USA - JAN 18, 2004 does not count
Although I prefer dark beers, I had to try this one. I've never had a beer that came with instructions before. You have to pour half of it, swirl the bottle, then pour the rest because the yeast settles to the bottom. In a clear glass, it looks like aged apple cider; very creamy light amber. Not overly hoppy. I had been drinking a Pepsi and this beer still had a crisp sweetness I don't find in most beers. This is a notable beer

kathouse (1016) - Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2004 Light greenish gold with plenty of yeast sediment. Thin white head clings nicely to the glass. Aroma was not nearly as fruity as I expected. Mildly spicy with some grapefruit. Good body for a white beer. Well carbonated. Light and dry flavor finishes clean and refreshing. A very drinkable beer, but not the best white.

ReRate-bottle-pours a nice cloudy yellow orange hue with a small white head. a great looking belgian wit. phenalic aroma full of lemon, corriander, ginger, sour grapes, and yeast esters. robust palate for a belgian wit. flavors of belgian yeast, noble hops, lemon zest, green apple skins. the finish has notes of cough surup unfortnately.
