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.

Poured from a bottle. Slightly cloudy light yellow color, short lived frothy white head. Sour malt smell. Light body with a very weak bread flavor and watery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Oranges, coriander, wheat. A- Copper color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Orange, spice, and wheat tones. Balanced well. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- An excellent Belgian white. Orange and coriander tones are almost perfect. Makes me crave a lot more of Alaskan Brewing beers.

Best by 9/8/11 A: A hazy golden-on-copper ale with single finger loosely packed off white head formation. This dissipates within a minute or two leaving a thin sheet of the same with a central cone. Rim necking present. Little lacing. S: Sweet grain with evident sweet bavarian influenced yeast notes. Slight floral tone of gardenia with bananas as well. Little to no coriander which I find typical in the style. I like. T: Sweet once again, bananas, esters, no ETOH, fairly one dimensional, but nice dimension nonetheless. M: Medium body with medium to high carb. Leaves mouth slightly drier upon departure. O: Very drinkable, which is nice, but the craftsmanship? Above average, and balanced, but not unique to bold. Could drink quite a bit, which is nice, but not a stand out beer. Serving type: bottle 03-21-2011

Hazy dark yellow with a filmy head and mild visible carbonation. Aroma of wheat, oranges, spices and pale malts. Taste includes wheat, pale malts, tangerine, and mild spices. Dry Aftertaste. Body is quite heavy and the carbonation is moderate, giving it a crisp feel. Not Bad!

Bottle. Not usually a fan of the spiced styles... Nose has some of the coriander coming through and just a little bit of the citrus in there. Taste has some the same spices to it, as well as some of the wheat you normally expect from the style. Meh.
