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.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jakís Tap (Chicago). Pale yellow and hazy. Smelled of grapefruit and some yeast. Weakly acidic with interestingly sweet hops. The finish was a bit disappointing: it was short and was vinegary. Not great, but not crap.

Very very nice wit. A little spicy with a smooth, yeasty body. Crisp and well-balanced. Looking forward to another.

I really really like this Wit. Clean and crisp and lemony. Faint spicy undertone. Very much resembles a German Hefeweizen. Another great beer from Allagash. It appears at this point they know their belgian brews and do a terrific job reproducing them. I enjoyed this one even more than I did the grand cru. Definitely a beer to accumulate.

750 ml - batch 13. From the aroma thru the fiinish, this was true to style. I would agree with many raterís assesments of the refreshing qualities, but was surprised by the spiciness (in a nice way). The pur was a light golden color, with a frothy, resilient head. Nice crisp finish. There was more character to this Witbier than any Iíve had to date.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Hazy pale gold color with a soft velvety head and lacing, and a spicy, citrusy cilantro aroma. Light and tangy on the tongue, with mellow flavors of wheat, coriander and clove. The finish was short with a light lemon zest bitterness. I thought this one had more of a Belgian touch to it than a couple other U.S. versions Iíve tried. Very refreshing.

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.

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.
