on tap. a refreshing brew with flavor of yeast and citrus. slight spice character. hazy golden color with slight head. not enough flavor depth in my opinion. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2005
This starts out with an average sized white head over a very pale yellow body. Almost clear.
Light funky citrus aroma with some sourness that follows in the flavor.
This was o.k. but not as good as others I’ve had. pineypower (3343) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2005
First off I have to say that I don’t usually flip over whites, but this one was pretty good. Pours out a cloudy light straw color with a nice white fluffy head. The aroma tells of some spice. The taste is very crisp with the typical wheat taste and a decent spice flavor in the finish mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Candied sugar aroma followed by wheat malt. The appearance, aroma and flavor do not reveal much residual yeast. Alcohol content appears in the flavor, but less so in the palate, which favors orange peel and wheat tartness. Overall a near miss of the wit style. MaltOne (372) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2005
I like a Belgian White in the summer. The Allagash is very nice. Classic opaque pale yellow. Modest head. Spicey aroma. The flavor follows with a subtle spiciness, coriander and bitter orange, perhaps. Creamy on the tongue at first, gliding into a slight bite of bitter, finishing with spice, in a long lasting blend of them all. Refreshing. Likely to become a favorite summer cooler

Very pale yellow and quite cloudy at the same time. Fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, light malts or wheat, bananna and spice. Light feel which is quitkly pushed aside by a nice spicyness and some mild bananna flavor. Crisp and active on the palate and a nice clean finish. Fairly complex, nice beer. One that is very refreshing and also probably a good starter for those new to beer. murawski (160) - USA - MAY 31, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 Had this for the first time recently on tap, and I really enjoyed it. Very refreshing citrus flavor with a surprising spice to it (nice balance, though). Also one of the few beers that I really like to get my nose into. Allagash has successfully created a Belgian-style white with its own unique character.

Glowing, cloudy pale yellow in color with a small, fizzy white head. Aroma is lemon zest, orange rind, sour, yeast, cloves and pepper. Flavor is sour lemons sprinkled with sugar, pepper and clove. Much like a stale lemon drop. Very reserved flavor. Vanilla overrides other taste elements on the backend of each sip. A little acidic and spicy on the palate. Smooth - kept seeming like it wanted to elevate its flavor elements but it’d plateau too early. Finish is like a citric cooler sitting in the sun for an hour. A little thinning and lacking candi sugar. A nice quaff, but doesn’t come full circle. Thanks for the New England goodie, tpkenned! OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
Couleur jaunâtre très trouble et brouillé, parsemé d’une faible mousse blanche. Clou, coriandre et autres épices semblent se moquer des bananes bonbon et du citron qu’ils ont aperçu au loin. Douce et un peu mince en bouche, semblant légèrement manquer de corps. Les épices demeurent toujours très présente et semble à la limite de l’abus. Tout de même très rafraîchissant après une longue journée sur la route. En fut au Moan And Dove, 21 Mai 2005. Pailhead (6541) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle: Cirtusy and sweet with a lot of spice. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow, almost whitish-yellow with a small white head. Rather sweet with a pretty big honey character that lingers in the aftertaste. There are spices but not enough to balance out the sweetness. Refreshing, but a touch too sweet to be really good.
