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.

(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.

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.

Bottled (thanks Kalevi Kurronen!). Golden colour, small head. Aroma is coriander, some wheat as well as mild spices. Flavour is quite much the same. Rather pleasant and refreshing.

Alaskan wit Hazy pale straw color. White head that dissipates quickly. Some nice spice on the nose, a crisp scent on the front but some funk at the end. Taste is well-balanced and crisp from the nose is on the taste as well. Some nice, if not understated, orange.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Tap. Rating #92. Dark gold pour with a white head that laced up pretty good as the glass emptied. I couldnít get much from the aroma, very light. Flavor was similar, no real defining taste to it, good quaffer, but thatís about it. (1126)

poisoneddwarf (1701) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2010
12 oz bottle. Spicy nose full of those trademark American wit ingredients--most prominent being orange peel. Wheaty. Pours golden with a medium dissipating head and nice lacing. Should be paler ("whiter") for this style. Taste is moldy oranges, wheat. Creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Below average wit. I expect "true" craft breweries to be able to surpass the macrobreweries, but this beer isnít even as good as Blue Moon. This is probably the worst beer Iíve ever had from this brewery.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Draught at WB. Hazy light yellow with small white head. Aroma is boring - hay, light yeast, coriander, light fruit. Taste is much better and is very earthy, kind of unique.
