3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow without a lot of head. Spicy nose with a little sweet maltiness. Tartness jumps out first, followed by citrus and clove and corriander. Yeast present throughout.
Pretty creamy body. Dry finish with doughy hints. Another winner from Allagash.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head, dissapates quickly. Hazy gold with a white hue. Malt nose with citrus and cloves. Light/medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Spicey, malty flavors, some breadyness and more citrus flavors also. Finish is medium dry. Nice Wit!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. brown stubbie bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a golden yellow color. Cloudy from the yeast. Thin, white, fast-fading head. It left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Aromas are phenolic, lactic wheat, corriander, some malts, and of course, yeast. Tastes medicinal, too much phenol for my liking. Spices make up the bulk of the flavors, with dominate corriander spice profile. Finished crisp and dry. Not my favorite wheat beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2004 The instructions on the bottle say to swirl the bottled yeast and add it to the glass. Before I did that, the beer was not cloudy like a wit, after it was 'perfect' looking. Nice pale yellow gold. Very nice sweet and spicy aroma. Mild carbonation - good mouthfeel. Overall a very good belgian style Wit from Maine, USA!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit clearer in appearance than Hoegaarden, but just about as good. Nice lemon grass flavor with coriander as well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy yellow, pretty vigourous white head. Slightly spicy aroma, also some citrus. Light bodied, nice rendition of a Belgian Witbier.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
