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.

I bought this by mistake. I donít like wheat beer almost as much as I donít like IPA. But this having been said this is not bad at all. I wont say its good but it is drinkable. It is too carbonated for my taste and lacks the malty flavor I enjoy but it is flavorful and since I only got a four pack Ill drink it as opposed to throwing it out. To me thats high praise.

On draft at Allagash (and many other places too!). Itís so easy to overlook this beer because itís getting ubiquitous on tap lists and this style because itís not hoppy or in your face. However, itís still worth remembering that this is a great beer -- lots of fruit notes from the orange peel, some spiciness from the yeast, and a good, smooth mouthfeel. A great, refreshing beer thatís made extremely well.

WithZ, pours a hazy gold with a small white head, typical of a wit. Nose is very mild spice but all in all flat . Taste is mod spice, grainy and dull ! Finishes on the mild spicey notes , all in all a rather boring beer...but not a big wit fan ! Quaff Score 4 / 10

Tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury. Colour is cloudy golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, wheat and malts. Pretty weak wit IMO.

Nice white ale. Reminds me of an authentic German wheat beer with the banana and clove flavor. All around very solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pale gold color; light citrus and spices in the aroma; soft wheat malt with light citrus and corriander notes; a very smooth, well balancedwit beer; one of the best examples of the style

4-pack of 12 oz bottles from Uncork-It, Chicago. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bread, herbs, light citrus zest and light spices. Similar flavor, an easy drinking wit with a smooth finish over a light to medium body. Nice.

On tap at Smittyís cinema, Biddeford, ME. Floral coriander, herbs, and zesty aroma with delicate orange blossom. Cloudy gold under a lacy, thin, white sheet. Bitter orange peel and slightly waxy coriander flavour that is zesty and delicate with a very light pilsner malt background. Medium light body, medium carbonation, zesty.

Pours cloudy blonde with a quick white head. Nose is standard citrus and slight tartness but is quite nice. Flavor is similar and fairly subdued. A decent white.
