a good beer that is widely available on tap used to like it a lot when i didnt really like beer because it is not very bitter at all. cloudy. some spice and fruity flavors.

Beer pours appropriately cloudy, though a rather darker golden that is usual for the style. Head is white and dissipates fairly rapidly. Aroma is wheaty with some light yeastiness and an off aroma that can best be described as wet cardboard. Flavor improves upon the aroma with lemon flavor and some light wheat flavor. Average, but with so many good examples of the style easily available, I will probably never drink this one again.

surprisingly decent. plenty of coriander in the aroma, light lemon meringue taste, a bit thin for the style but better than most american wits i tasted and much better than i expected anything on the coors brewery tour would be

Continuing on Belgianight, Allagash is going to be pretty hard to top. Very much like the description depicts. Mellow is a good word nothing is over done. Could be very easily mistaken for a German Hefeweizen without the hops. Looks like one, very nice brew. I’m surprised and pleased this one was better than average.

Ok first time I have seen this brew up here in Salem, Oregon so here goes. Bought in the 12 oz brown long neck. Its a nice enough beer to look at hazy straw gold..but the head is pretty small and goes fast..some splotchy lace left on glass sides. for a "wit" the aroma is average at best..theres none of the expected spiciness here..just nice malts ..and a faint banana pudding odor. Again the taste is inoffensive but not very exciting.its mainly malts..though I dodetect some VERY faint coriander. Pretty average on the palte..nothing out of the ordinary. For all kits faults its still quite quaffable..but if you want an American interpretation of a wheat..try New Belgiums Sunshine Wheat Beer

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - JUN 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Pours a cloudy orangish color. Aroma of peach/orange which pleasing. fruity at first which settles into more wheat which then settles into a nice fruity after taste. After a while it begans to dull though. Overall not bad, good for summer.

This is what Bud would taste like if they pitched a belgian yeast strain instead of whatever crap they normally use. Belgian taste is there, but the corn and sour taste really comes through. Yuck.

This is not bad for a comercial giant mainstream brewery. I actually think it gets like a Belgian witbier. Then after that you can decide wether or nor you like that style, but i’m sorry to say that this beer does it.
