The aroma is bananas, cloves, lemon grass, pepper, and of course wheat. The appearance is golden with a white cloudiness. The flavor is nutmeg, coriander, citrus, banana, and malt. The palate is thin but acceptable. This was my first beer for 2006 and a good way to welcome in the new year.

Bright yellow in colour and somewhat hazy. Strong carbonation. Strong lemon aromas, with more subtle hints of grapefruit and black pepper. The coriander comes through much stronger in the mouth, and there’s even a bit of grassy hop flavor in there too... along with your typical citrus/banana/bubble gum wit flavors. A bit more bitter and grassy than I would like, and the body is a touch watery, but this is still a solid wit.

Medium yellow, hazy appearance, with a large, frothy head to start that diminished rather quickly. Very nice spicyness in the aroma. Both citrusy and spicy in flavor. Probably not the best time of year to try for the first time, but it was still a pretty good Witbier.

This seems like a warm weather beer, and unfortunately I’m tasting it while its cold outside. Anyway, pours a translucent gold with white, smooth head. Nose is very lemony. Taste begins spicy and lemony, fades off into a very nice banana finish. Very refreshing, although a bit out of place in cold weather. Mouthfeel is a little on the watery side, but that would probably be welcomed in the hot summer months. Overall, rivals a good pilsener in terms of refreshing-ness.

Bottle. Pours the greatest hue of orange with a pretty minimal head. Yeasty scents abound with a slight starfruit scent towards the end. Banana flavors with slight nutmeg aftertaste. Sparking mouthfeel. This is the best Belgian white I’ve had. It’s like spring in a bottle.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pours a cloudy golden orange with lots of sediment. Head is large and white. Aroma is the typical citrus/coriander taste of a white beer. Taste is well balanced. Mild taste of citrus and spice with a very dry finish.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2005
The color was dark whiteish yellow. Very thin head. No aroma. Not all that hoppy but it was very smooth.

3.2
dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Aroma of coriander, slight hint of white pepper, mild lemony citrus, notable wit yeast. Appears a pale straw color with noticeable suspended yeast but with very litle true haze; minimal white head that dissipates. Flavor is mildly spicy, mildly citrusy, but not particularly bold as a wit goes. Palate is thin and watery, light even by wit standards. Overall this beer is somewhat disappointing but still serviceable, and it is slightly less than the sum of its parts.

Has the hot dog water smell I associate with authentic Belgian Witbier. Lemon fruit yellow with a two finger thick white head. Lots of coriander yeasty wheat notes. Mild citrus spritziness in the finish. That finish is also dry and somewhat tart. Decent Witbier.

I drink Allagash when I go to my favorite pizza place in State College. It doesn’t amaze me, but it’s decent. I’d rather have Hoegaarden if it’s available, but if not, I settle for Allagash. If you want a white, ok, you drink this before Blue Moon (or don’t drink Blue Moon at all!)
