COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known As Alaskan Belgian Wit

Brewed with coriander, bitter orange peel and malted wheat, Alaskan White Ale has a light and crisp body pleasant tartness followed by slightly spicy aftertaste. The malted wheat gives the beer a more full and lightly malty mouthfeel. There is an aroma and flavor of wheat and coriander, with a dry and refreshingly carbonated finish.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 6, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep, hazy, gold with a decent, clingy, white head that slowly collapses. The taste is of wheat, orange peel, cloves, hops, citrus malt and spice. Has a similar aroma. Has a decent body that is a little oily. Pretty good on hot day. Easy to drink, refreshing, rather enjoyable and is offered at a decent price. Well worth picking up again.

smells like blue moon. pours a pretty damn ugly cloudy yellow/orange. flavor is spiced with orangey flavors and an actually pretty firm malt backing. the wheat presence is nicely refreshing. not overly spiced, just a simple beer with a simple purpose. somehow it seemed to get thinner as my glass got emptier, but the body was less fizzy and had more substance than i was expecting. alcohol presence is actually felt even though itís only 5.2abv. itís not a knockout but dont tell me this wouldnít be nice by the pool in july. much nicer than widmer hef, and iíd take it over blue moon as well.

12oz local bottle. Pours a relatively clear gold colour with a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with some bubble gum and wheat. Flavour fits the style with some coriander and citrus notes. Pleasant.

Clear golden pour. Nose has some Belgian spicing (coriander and orange peel). Flavors are fairly muted...some mild coriander and citrusy orange peel....but pretty restrained. Certainly drinkable, but nothing remarkable. Thanks to George for the sample at FSBR mugclub tasting.

Somewhat hazy gold with thin white head and little lacing; carbonation and clarity seem more like a lager than a white ale. Hint of orange and little else in aroma. Off tastes evident; not sure if itís the spice or something else. Thin and fizzy on the palate. I love white beers, but this is not a very good white beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 8, 2010
On draft. Cloudy pale yellow with a light orange tint and a small white head. Aroma of coriander, orange and wheat. Flavor about the same, lots of spices and some light citrus and wheat malt flavors. Light body with active carbonation and a dry crisp finish. Ok for the style, but a bit bland imo.

Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didnít care for this beer at all. White beers arenít high on my list.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2010
(12 oz. bottle). Pours yellow with orange hue and decent white head. Aroma of spice and orange with yeastiness present. slight bitterness with sourness. There is something else there that I canít figure out (buttered popcorn??), but its not good. It completely throws the beer off balance. This missed the mark big time.

Bottled
A bit hazy orange color, small white head. Coriander spicey, bready aroma. Quite light palate. Wheatish, strong coriander spiceyness. Quite Belgian. Quite refreshing. Some similarities to Alaskan Summer Ale, which I had before this one.
