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.

Tap, Hop Leaf Chicago. Strong aromatic aroma, both floral yeast and spicy coriander. Substantial body. Refreshing, quite nice.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Dark yellow color, thick soapy head. Smell: an enticing combination of apricots and peaches. After the smell the taste was a bit of a letdown; stale peaches and Earl Grey tea. No malt, no hops, not even a hint of citrus, which I did kind of expect since this is an American version of a light German wheat. Disappointing.

joet (2156) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Lots of nutty coriander flavors, some lemony citrus bouncing of yeasty flavors in a medium full aroma. Only lightly cloudy. Delicious but not comparable to this brewer's bigger, better beers.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 1, 2003
White wheat, some banana. Slightly earthy and yeasty. Good Wit but did not show anything more than most average beers of such kind.

Light yellow. Scent is spicy, but there is something off about the scent that I can't quite place. Has the spicy citrus flavor that others have described. Just doesn't do it for me.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2003 This brew pours a head of fine white bubbles that left an excellent lacing and a straw yellow body. I smelled no discernable aroma from it. It had a tingly mouthfeel and a mild bread flavor. Nothing much here. Original rating of: 3-4-5-3-10 Re-Rate: The first sample came from the Dayton Ale fest. Later when we came home, we found a bottle of this in the beer stash. Hence the re-rate. From the bottle, the aroma was more discernable as a mild floral malty one. The head was much larger and the body was much more hazy due to the yeast in the bottle we poured. The mouthfeel was more bubbly and finished more smoothly. Thflavor was also more noticeable with elements of malt and coriander appearing. All-in-all, I gave it a 5-3-6-4-13 at home. Combining this rating with the other I bumped up the aroma from3 to 4, flavor from 5 to 6 and overall fom 10 to 12. Thus proving what we already know to be true that a bottle is better than a sample!

Body is literally medium: not too thin, not too big. Head is nice, white, and persistent. Color is, as far as I know, right on style. Nice balance of body and spiciness on the whole that seems fairly complex. Maybe too sweet, though. By the way, visited the brewery for what may have been the absolute WORST tour I've ever been on. Way too quick, way too many unanswered questions, way too little beer geek comeraderie, and way too little sampling. Very disappointing.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Color was light, cloudy yellow with a huge white fluffy,head that retained throughout the glass as I drank it and had patchy tight lace. Aroma of strong lemony, orange, with a bit of spice. Taste is good, could have a little more body though, but its a good wheat style belgian, lightly lemony, a bit of spice and a very clean wheat backing. Pretty darn good. Its a bit empty on the feel, goes right into the lemony spice and just ends, no real finishing qualities. It's a lighter bodied ale, fresh, lemony, with a slightly dry citrus twinge.

Indra (2605) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Juicy orange and yeast in the nose, some coriander. Cloudy, light golden in color with lots of suspended particles and a very slight head. Flavor is initially tart, lightly malty and citric, becoming much sweeter and fruitier, with the yeast and spices added in towards the finish. Very "wet" palate, with a smoothly effervescent mouthfeel. Medium-full bodied, unusual for this style. I think I expected a little more from the #1 Witbier in the world (according to current Ratebeer stats). It's a little too sweet and the spices are a little too prominent for me to enjoy this highly.

On tap - definately yeasty but the flavors come thru and don't seem like they were sprinkled in as additives at the end. Cloudly with limited but persistant carbonation. Definately on the heavier side of the Belgian Whites that I have sampled.
