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.

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. I’m not a fan. The banana taste bothers me. It’s 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. 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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2009
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.
