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.

I am biased because I love Alaskan beers. I donít 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.

rosenbergh (8283) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 04/02/15. (White Cross Liquor) Las Vegas, NV.
Hazy golden colour with a mid-size foamy white head. Yeast, bitterness, spices and some citrus notes in the aroma. The flavour is wheat, mild yeast, bready malt and sweetness. Closer to American Wheat Ale than Belgian Witbier.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has earthy wheat with a touch of light fruit and some light spice. Flavor has lots of earthy wheat with a bit of light spice and bread.

Good move from Alaskan, balanced and refreshing. Pouring a cloudy yellow. Not too zesty. Drinkable

Obfuscate (243) - Minneapolis, - FEB 17, 2015
This is actually pretty good, itís not normally my style but very crisp and clean, especially for a wheat. Get the light spice but nothing overpowering to take away from the drinkability. A pleasant surprise.

Pailhead (5442) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate orange/orange peel, coriander, and a touch of grass. It pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some minimal webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light citrus and wheat. The finish has light-moderate orange peel, light coriander, and a touch of lemon. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, itís a decent thirst quenching lawn mower beer.

Light orange amber color with a smallish white head. Creamy, lightish body. Love the smooth creamy wheat. Modestly spiced. Easy. Nice.
