Bottle. Hazy golden straw color, lots of sediment, with big white head. Aromas of orange, lemon, cloves, spiced tea, wet grass, wheat, yeast, and faint pisslike sourness. Flavor delivers on all of these. Medium body, very smooth carbonation, and a fantasticly drawn-out sweet & sour finish. Very enjoyable.... AND, it’s beer no. 100! Many thanks to Kinz for getting me onto the site. It’s all downhill from here; dear god..... JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Tasted at the South Western Ontario Gathering, in London, Ontario. Pours deep hazy yellow, with a huge foamy head. Smells like lemony corriander, wiht some licorice, and all spice. Some clove as well. Tastes like a regular wheat, plus tax! Lots of spices and cloves, black pepper too. One of my favourites. Y’all know I jadore blanche!

Thanks a lot for sharing Kevin! This is a great wit in my opinion. Pours cloudy yellow, with a huge frothy and creamy looking head. Aromas are orange peel, corriander, some other spices. Taste is fruity, then some spices, almost minty. Very good. Nice balance here. Finish is sweet aftertaste, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Thanks again Mustang3!

750 ml corked bottle, Batch #21. Hazy pale yellow colour with a white frothy head and lots of floating particulate. Lemon, light orange peel, and coriander aroma. Dry lemony citrus and lightly yeasty flavours. Light bodied, creamy but refreshing. albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Hazy light yellow with big explosive foamy white head & floaties. Initial aroma is hoppy with nutmeg spiciness coming through, and some orange julius. Flavor is hoppy with biscuity malt, some earthiness and a hint of yeast. Very nice

Curiously metallic tasting on the intial taste, this one smooths out to a gentle sweetish sipper. Spicy! A bit heavier than some wheats, but it is a BELGIAN style wheat so I guess that is to be expected. another fine beer from Allagash. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle poured a hazy yellow with a crisp yeasty aroma.
Flavor is citrus, yeast, spice with a light spicy finish. pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 This is a good witbier. It pours a golden straw color with two fingers of white head and has nice lacing. It has a strong citrus smell (lemons). The taste is very good with the citrus and spice complementing each other nicely. One of my favorite witbiers. JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Not the biggest fan of witbiers, but this one was pretty solid. Spices were not overdone. Cloudy golden yellow with huge white head. Aromas were clove, orange, almonds, and vanilla. Yeast was also big. Flavor had a good yeast backbone with a good mix of the previously mentioned spices. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Well done Belgian wheat...with wheat grain/citric aroma. Fruitiness and new mowed hay flavor components. Bit of hoppy bite in the finish. Very strong yeast flavors as well.
