    Allagash is one of those breweries that doesn’t brew to style, but rather interprets them as they see fit. Loved by most, but not by me. The beer pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thick creamy off-white cap. The aroma is wheat, coriander, cloves, and banana. Again, typical for the style. Mouthfeel is average. Flavor is more spice forward than a typical witbier, and in this case, that’s a good thing.

    A nice drinkable Wit. Not overbearing. Flavor balance of sour, spice, fruit a little wheat/ nice. Refreshing in the usual Wit style. Very pale yellow pour with a thin head the quickly fades, I will have to try more to see if this is standard.

    Purchased a single bottle on my trip to Maine. Pours a hazy golden colour with a long lasting, creamy white head. Yeasty Belgian Ale nose with mild orange. The taste has a little more bite, but the spices are still too light. Slightly creamy, wet mouthfeel. A nice refreshing witbier.

    I had this beer at the Beer Bar on 45th and Vanderbilt in New York City. I have put this beer off forever as I am not a huge fan of the style. It was time to give this very hyped beer a try. This may be my favorite American Wit I have ever had. Well done Allagash.

    350 ml capped bottle. Poured a hazy golden-yellow coloured ale with a good three fingers slightly beige pillowy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Mid-sized carbonation. Great lacing. The aroma is yeast,wheat malts, aciditic fruits, citrus, grapefruit. The flavour is yeast, wheat malts, vegetables, celery, aciditic fruits, citrus, spicy, coriander, orange peels and a well hidden pepper. The mouthfeel is slight crispy and very smooth. This light to medium bodied Wit has a lingering citrussy fruity finish. A very nice Witbier, well tasting and refreshing.

    This is my first Allagash brew, and I must say that I'm a little disappointed. It pours a hazy golden yellow topped off by a snow white cap. Lots of citrus and wheat in the aroma. The flavour is a bit on the sour side, something completely unexpected from a witbier.

    Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is rather papery and fruity along with some slight notes of wheat. Flavour is wheat, fruits, nectar, cardboard and some mild notes of spices/herbs. OK, but a bit thin for being a really good Witbier.

    Pours out in a shady pale golden colour with a with a rich steady white head. Mild aroma yet quite dry and solid of yeast, coriander and dried oranges. Fairly light-bodied with rounded but still solid notes (for the style) of sweet lemon-pastilles, Seville oranges with a well-rounded coriander bite. Creamy and light mouthfeel. Long rounded refreshing finish of mild lemon, coriander, wheat and yeast. One of the better Wit’s out there.

    One of Toronto's brewpubs has brought in a line of Allagash beers for all to try. I've sampled some in the past while stateside, and now I get to sample them provinceside. This is a light gold coloured beer, slightly hazy, with a thick white head. The aroma is wheat malt with coriander and citrus. It is a light tasting beer, very refreshing, and goes down easy.
