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 first was introduced to this beer when traveling on the west coast. I fell in love with this beer. When I got back home much to my disappointment I asked my local liquor distributor and they said that they were not able to get it. The distributor does not come this far. I suggest anyone to try this beer you will fall in love....

Smooth great taste. No bitter after taste. Better than Blue Moon or Shock Top.

A true mixture of Belgian Wheat and American Ale. Not nearly as thick or heavy as Blue Moon, and with much more flare and spice. Im not usually a fan of the style, but have a HUGE appreciation for this brew.

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

Pours a nice rich golden color with a decent head (though it lacks retention). The aroma carries over some of the citrus and coriander scents. It tastes very similar to Hoegaarden but has a less pungent, mellower flavor to it. The description hits the flavor on the head other than that. Seems to have a higher than normal carbonation but I feel it works for the style.

Bottle pour. Pours a hazy gold to copper with a big white head of foam. The aroma has big fruity spices with a solid wheaty, bready backbone. Taste is fait sweet with that bready, spice forward character taking precedence. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. Very good.

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.

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.

i received this delectable as a gift from a colleague, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with it. The color was perfect, the taste, while different, grew on me. We opened these beers in a conference room, and it made me wish there was an air freshener of alaskan white ale.
