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.

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.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2010
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.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
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.

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.
