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.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Nose is cinnamon toast with some orange zest. Hazy Orangey gold color with a medium head. Cotton candy jam on a biscuit with some subtle spicy hops for balance. Big carbonation, medium body, sweet spicy finish. Lots of flavors going on in this, but seems a little too sweet, almost if it was designed this way with the expectation that one would add a lemon. Decent beer though.

Bottle. Lots of spice in aroma and flavor with a hint of orange and banana. Pours with a medium head and light gold in color. Not a bad witbier but once is enough

Nice spice aroma, some definite coriander. This is a pretty good beer. Not too wheaty, some great spices and overall a good wit.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
12oz bottle. Very lightly hazed gold-copper color with a lasting white head. Lots of orange and spices in the aroma like a sweet spiced cake. The flavor is herbal and spicy with a citrus note and some sweet toasty malt. Chunky in body and pretty much missing the lean refreshing quality of of a god wit. Over-spiced overall, and more like a christmas ale than a wit, with more malt than it knows what to do with.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2009
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 (2339) - 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.
