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.

The Alaskan White ale is a beautiful golden yellow in color. It has a light body and crisp residual flavor of orange. This beer lacks significant taste but is balance well.

nuplastikk (5742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-yellow. Thin, quick fading head. Pleasantly sweet orange aroma. Medium bodied, quite refreshing. Doesnít really have much of the thick, wheaty vanilla tones that I like in a white, but it still holds up pretty well. Some herbal citrus bite, but nothing overboard. OK beer, clean but rather unexceptional too.

Aroma has light fruitiness, coriander spice, tartness, wheat. Tastes of wheat with toast and biscuit flavors, some spice and coriander, yeast, minimal citrus presence. Thin, light body. Pretty light on flavor as wits go.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head that fades. Aroma of hay, very mild orange and yeast spice. Taste is equally bland. I kind of expected more flavor from this but then again it is very easy to drink and a good sessionable Wit sense itís not overly sweet.

RedSox2004 (1637) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Hazy yellow/orange with an off-white head and just ok lacing. subtle aromas of wheat, lemon, and spices. Flavor matched the smell, with nothing really presenting itself very strongly. Medium body, high carbonation, slightly watery mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. There are better examples of the style.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2016 bottle. Poured hazy gold with a white head. Citrusy malt aroma. Light body, average carbonation, crisp mouthfeel. Light wheat flavour, notes of lemon citrus, slight yeast with a peppery note. Very refreshing

Alaskan White Ale. This is a pretty good beer to start out with. It pours out a golden hue with a slight haziness, but it was for the most part pretty clear. it was poured with a pretty sizable head, but the retention and lacing wasnít much to speak of. It dissipated pretty quick. The aroma was fairly yeasty and had slight spice and malt notes. It was pretty subtle in the aroma department. The flavor is pretty good as well. Itís subtle in its sweetness. It carries a wheat flavor throughout its body with sweetness from what seems to be grapes, cantaloupe, and maybe honeydew. My main complaint about the flavor is that the body of the brew doesnít really hold the flavor too well. You taste it and then your palate doesnít really hold it well. The flavor vanishes as fast as it appears. Despite that, it is still a good beer to start out a meal with. Itís light, not over powering, and it has a delicate flavor that settles on itís own waiting to be followed with something heavier.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, nose is heavy on orange peel, hint of corriander, little too much residual sweetness, kind of tasty.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2010
12oz bottle from Colorado trip. Pours deep gold with an orange tint and a severely bubbly white head that disappears almost instantly. Aroma is strong wheat and yeast, overpowering subtler aromas. Flavor brings a light honey sweetness with a punch of peppery spice layered over simple wheat bread base. A bit overcarbonated, but overall a refreshing white.
