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.

shigadeyo (3190) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2009

6/18/2009: Alaskan White pours a golden copper color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is wheaty, yeasty, and has highlights of fruit, banana, and spice. The flavor is pretty weak, but is lightly malty and fruity with some sweet and bitter orange (curacao) peel. It has some slightl floral bitterness and a dry, spicy finish. It sounds better than it actually is as there really isnít a lot of character in the flavor in this beer. It is quite soft overall and my wife thinks that it tastes like MGD!

12 Fl. Oz. bottle (twist-off cap; W A090309) from Sled Dog Liquor near Denali National Park, Alaska. Rating #39 for this beer.

JPDIPSO (4965) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Lightly hazed, light golden liquid. Tallish off-white head that is rather stable. Big orange peel and coriander aromas. JUst a hint of pale malt in the background. Head has settled to an tin dense lid and some lace. Light fruit in the start with a bit of peach. Citrus works its way into the middle. Some light honey and herbal qualities in the finish. Linger is fairly dry. with some dry weeds and spice. Not enough wheat/malt presence for me in this one.

RSRIZZO (1882) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Had at the summit Brewfest & BBQ on 5/16/09. Color is golden with no haze. Carbonation is good with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with a fruity back tone. Taste is light and fruity. Starting with a light body it goes down easy with a fizzy feel. Finish is sweet with a bubble gum fruit taste. Overall I donít like it much, it has no white character and just seems like a pilsner with bubble gum flavoring.
