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.

Nice spice flavors with the coriander. Very similar to Sam Adams summer ale. Overall very tasty and different from your standard ale.

Bottle. Thought I had rated this. Glad I checked. It pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has some rather strong orange peel and some coriander spice. Maybe some darker Munich type malts that hide any wheat character. The flavor is ok. Kinda like a slightly better, fuller bodied version of Blue Moon. Mostly orange, little coriander, light toasted malt. Pretty sweet and flabby in the finish, but not a bad drinker. Overall, pretty meh even for the style. At least it’s not over spiced.

12-ounce bottles in a pint glass. A bit stronger on the spices than some other white ales, in a nice way. Only problem is it does hide some of the wheat flavor. Otherwise, a very flavorful beer.

Tap at Mod.

Gold-amber pour. Insipid, sweetish ale with not a lot of wheat beer character and even less by way of distinguishing personality. Nope nope nope.

Too clear, too dark (light amber), and not enough carbonation for a wit. There is a low coriander aroma combined with wheat aromas. There is a hint of citrus, not similar to bitter orange. The taste is a bit too bitter for a wit, but ok if not judged within the wit style. Too sharp for a wit. Not a bad beer but just a bad wit.
