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.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Poured a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Rich vinuous and spicy aroma. Taste is very spicy with a bitter finish... crisp, dry, and refreshing, but overall thin for a Belgian style.

very hazy golden color as thought the liquid soaked half of the light out of the room and allowed it to gently ooze back out through the glass. Yeasty off white head with good retention. Aggressive yeasty aroma with a touch of light fruit. Rich mouthfeel with plenty of well-balanced malt and subtle spice. Refreshing finish that made me want to back again for sip after sip. There must be plenty of Belgians in Maine!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 This poured a slightly hazy pale straw color with a respectable frothy head that remained only briefly. The aroma is grainy with tart citric scents and some spiciness. This is a neatly spiced, flavorful drink. There’s a yeasty fruitiness to it, a citric hoppiness, spices, and some grassiness. Nice dry, spicy finish. A good interpretation.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Color is crystal-clear pale yellow, with a mountainous, lacey, bubbly white head of foam. Nose is dry, sea-foamy fresh, with hibts of citrus, straw, some sly spiciness. Actually quite lovely, the perfect aromatic profile for a wit. Later on, the citrus and spice becomes bolder and takes a long ride on the palate. Not a wit for the faint of heart, this has more and more flavor as it unfolds in the mouth and nose. More floral and perfumey aspects show up. Texture is grainy, yeasty, and quite a delicious mouthfull. Hops are high, dazzling, citrus-soaked. Light body, but excellent texture, abundant flavor. A very tasty and satisfying Belgian-style white ale, mellow and smooth. In 3 words or less: yummy, yum,yum!

Yeast, citrus and some malt in the aroma, hazy golden, pours a nice white head. Soft malt taste, light bodied, refreshing. Very nice.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Orange and corriander flavors are more subdued than in some other Belgian white ales. Seems to be an Americanized version with slightly more hop flavor, and a darker color (still quite light) than it’s Belgian counterparts. Overall a very easy to drink beer.

Hazy yellow colour. Funky, spicey aroma with a faint whiff of skunk. Typical flavours of citrus and spice. Nice dry finish. [Toronto Christmas Party ’04]

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
Bottle at Doug’s, Christmas 2004. Yellow colour, fairly clear with white head. Slightly citrusy aroma with some spice. Taste is a little bland really, what you would expect from the style, but nice enough I guess. Quaffable. Everything about this beer seemed fine, I just found it boring.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2004
12oz bottle. Hazy blonde with a small head and some lacing. Yeasty, spicy, hoppy aromas give a good indication of the flavors to follow. Light to medium bodied, with a crisp and refreshing character. Dry, spicy finish. I had this after being in heaven with a Trois Pistoles, and it didn’t disappoint. I’m wishing I had picked up the 4-pack instead of a single. Tasty and excellent!

Batch 10. cloudy pale yellow w/ fluffy white head. Aroma is lightly malty, yeasty, spicy, & citrusy w/ an underlying lemony tartness. Light, somewhat gritty feel. Flavour is sweet, yeasty & spicy. Finish is dry & appetizing.
