3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks for Darkover for this one. Pours a hazy dark yellow color with a thin off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is very spicy with pepper, coriander and some citrus. Light-bodied and crisp with a spicy and fruity character, with yeast flavor as well. The finish is sweet, fruity and clean. This is a solid Wit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lots of coriander with a touch of smoky black pepper and lemon in the aroma. White pepper/hoppy flavors abound. Consistent rim of fluffy head. Not mouth-filling but very refreshing.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful aroma of banana, citrus, and spicy coriander. The appearance is a lovely cloudy golden yellow. Flavor is dominated by a sweet citrusy start, a spicy coriander middle followed by a clove-like finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel is average. A great wit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Slightly murky yellow. Big nose of cloves, coriander, bananas and lemons. Very crisp and stinging as the bubbles race across the tongue. Citrus, lemon, sprite soda all come to mind. A bit bland in the finish, but smooth after it explodes on the tongue. What a nice wit.

A sharp smell of corriander, the appearance is excellent, opaque yellow. Very citrus, floral, orange and corriander. very flavorful, a slight flat (for lack of a better word) taste that I cant quite identify.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught) Pale yellow, slight white head, lacey. Nose is citrussy, fresh orange flowers, some coriandre. Taste gives a bitter cookie-like flavour (mannah), mixed with the more classical witbier tastes. No overdose of coriandre or curaçao - OK. Light bodied - not thin. In the aftertaste, a mild sweetness appears. A better than average wit. I like the bitterish starting taint.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A cloudy straw yellow beer that pours with a white head with decent retention. Leaves a nice ring of lace at the top of the glass. The aroma is of yeast and malt, with a straw component in the background. The taste is heavy with coriander and yeast, with some wheat flavors and a subtle sweetness. The finish still seems to have some noticable hops as well.

Although I can now get Allagash here in Florida, but only in 750’s, this particular White Beer was acquired in a trade with Jeremy, the Main Pimp of Rochester, jgb9348!
Damn this Allagash White is as pale as the old moonlight; oh and “hey Batman, You ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light?”
This one pours a pale glowing golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma is of wheat, yeast, and lemon. The flavor is obviously wheaty and spicy, again more lemon, oily palate, snappish, crisp finish; wow this is quit good but I don’t have much to say as far as a description goes.
