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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - 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 (1873) - 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 don’t like it much, it has no white character and just seems like a pilsner with bubble gum flavoring.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours tawny yellow w/ tall, lasting head. Mildy spiced and malty aromatics play into this brew nicely. Medium full nectar w/ good carbonation. Malty and mildly spiced w/ a brisk tropical tartness that tingles on the finish. Theres an earthiness about it.

Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some wheat, coriander, orange zest and a touch of yeast. Finish is crisp, clean cut with some light orange peel aftertaste.

22. Pours a crystal clear light gold with a towering, fluffed platinum blonde head. Decent little fingers of lace. Nice spicy, yeasty, slightly alcoholic nose. Body’s light, and the carbonation really is sparkling enough to give it a bit of crispness. Truth in packaging! Phew. Spicy, yeasty, slightly corny mid-palate. Mild yeasty finish. Not bad; drinkable and refreshing for sure. Pretty cool label, too.
