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.

355 ml bottle poured into a globe glass. Hazy, pale golden appearance with a lingering white head and light lacing. Aroma of herbs, citrus fruit, coriander, zest, spices and light malts. Similar flavor, mildly sweet, lightly spicy and tart with minimal bitterness. Average body, a little thin and watery.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 She pour a slightly hazy yellow/orange color and leaves the same colored body with a two finger white foamy head that rises and falls within thirty seconds to a film coating the top of the body. Streams of carbonation are seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell has some light malt. There is some light banana all coming through in a refreshing sort of way. Hops are barely there, and there isn’t any yeast. The taste is slightly malty but not sweet, sour perhaps - hmmm.... maybe, no yeast. There isn’t any aftertaste and there is a dry watery finish. On the palate, she sits fairly light, comes across sessionable, and seems a bit undercarbonated for a witbier. Overall, this is a mostly average beer for its style, but comes across well for the summer months. I would probably have this again with a nice seafood dish.

I’ll be honest...the aroma produced a gag reflex. Something fecal about it. To be fair, my fellow tasters didn’t pick up on it. Small head, no lacing, yeasty flavor, and very watery finish. Blech.

Mild nose of sour dough and malt, cloudy straw colored with a small head. Taste of dough with a watery palate.

A pretty basic wit. Hazy yellow with milder than average spicing. Wheat and orange sweetness. Tried in Juneau.

Bottle: Nearly clear gold with a tall white head. Lemon/orange aroma...grain, a bit of skunk. Taste is slightly wooden, lemon-honey-grain.....lemon and grain increasing as it warms... Not bad....not memorable, however.

I am biased because I love Alaskan beers. I don’t know if its the water, or just the fact that it is a rarity to get any by me in New York, but this stuff is awesome. Coriander and other spices are noted in the nose and flavor, and is just great.

Outstanding warm up or session beer. Bottle from a 6r tried both cold mug and bottle. Orange coriander carbonation solid spicy. It's not an ipa or stout. In it's style, at the top. Love this mix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
