UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 Je n’aime pas les blanches classiques mais j’ai flashé sur celle-ci car elle a beaucoup de goût (épices, agrumes). Une de mes bières américaines préférées. Capa (3629) - DC, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2017

This is really good beer if you like Belgian whites. Try it and see why it beats even the Belgian whites for a Belgian-style white beer. Excellent. This is one of my overall favorite beers. My wife loves it too. Brewed in Portland Maine with water right out of pristine Sebago Lake. DutchDrebus (6328) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2017
Bottle @ home. Hazy pale yellow colour with a huge white head. Smells and tastes pretty much like a witbier should taste. I’m glad there’s not a coriander overkill. Thin to medium body and really low carbo. Still not my favorite type of beer, but I can enjoy this one.

One of my favorite white ales. Nice nose, smooth mouth taste and great finish.

Draft. Was a nice companion to a thick New England Clam Chowder. Citrus and coriander notes at good levels. Wheat a tad forward.

I got this bottle from jwc215. Thanks Joe!
It pours a coudy lemon yellow with a 2 finger head of foam. Good lacing and very good head retention.
The smell is yeasty and has big notes of orange and spice, mainly coriander. A touch of banana as well. Great nose for the style.
The taste is of lemon, coriander, a touch of clove, banana, pepper, ok. It fits the style to a T for me and I'm loving it.
Medium bodied and well carbonated, it finishes with a lemon zest flavour. Very drinkable and seeing how it's only 5%abv, I wouldn't get into too much trouble drinking a few of these.
Oh, and I just noticed a sweetness in my last sip....perhaps candy sugar? Wow. This is good.
Bottom line: A *great* Witbier that would make one hell of a return to beer in the upcoming summer. I wish we had it in Casper!!

I rate Allagash White on a sliding scale comparatively to Marten's Witte. Marten's Witte is my high water mark when it comes to belgian whites. It's the best i've ever tasted. Although, I don't know if it's the brewing process or not i.e. ABV, but I taste candy notes on the head and distilled birch bark thrown in on the aftertaste. Allagash white is a domestic offering that needs to step it up to European standards. This american white needs to more closely match a witte from europe, i.e. more candy notes and it will hit the nail on the head. All together it is an 8 where Marten's witte is a 10. In an country where it is ever so hard to obtain european imports Allagash white should adjust it's offering to brew a true european witte domestically without having to import anything.
