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.

Bottle. Decent witbier coriander spice aroma. Gold body with white head. Flavor was little to watery and soapy with some hint of lemon zest. Little bland on palate.

SDalkoholic (2301) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop: Poured a clear golden honey color with a firm standing of film for a head. In the nose, a zesty aroma of spices and citrus peel shavings of some kind. The flavor gives off a strong taste of spices such as coriander, pepper and lemon peel shavings but the flavor is also backed by a heavier serving of malts unlike most other white ales.

[bottle] Oranges dominate the nose with some sour wheat and coriander. Hazy bronze covered by thin white. Almost artificial, refreshing orange flavour with some wheat sourness and bitterness and a coriander note. Slightly more sourness would make this very refreshing, inviting beer. Herbal wheat sour finish, medium carbonation, light to medium body.

Pours a muddled yellow into the glass with a nice white head. Aroma is orange sweetness. Flavor reminds me of orange tang; an artificial orange flavor dominates the profile. Not bad but would not buy again.

On tap at the brewery. A very typical beer of the style. My problem was the coriander, it was so strong, it tasted like cloves.

12 oz bottle thanks to Mikey. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is nice banana and malty notes, light yeast as well. The flavor is very nice; a rich mix of malts, banana esters, some spices and citrus. Well made and tasty.

Clear golden with a very short lived fizzy white head. Bready Belgian yeast aroma. Odd vaguely orange taste dominated by malt flavors.

arondee (599) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Pours a light hazy yellow with a small white head. Tons of carbonation, a litle bit of lacing around the edges. Aroma is banana and lemon peel. The taste is artificial banana, with some lemon peel and spices. Iím not a fan. The banana taste bothers me. Itís easy to drink but not very good.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a towering, fluffed platinum blond head. Decent little fingers of lace. Nice spicy, yeasty, slightly alcoholic nose. Bodyís 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.

Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Smells of coriander and ginger. Tastes of sweet wheat, spicy, citrus, coriander, some sweetness on the finish.
