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.

Davhgbrew (938) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
Grainy aroma. Light gold, little head no lacing. Slick palate with slight grassy and resin herbal hop flavor. Can’t taste any orange or coriander, but there is some spicy phenol in the finish. Also can’t taste any wheat. Prob the worst al alaskan beer I’ve had and not much of a wheat beer .

From bottle. Light clear golden color. Aroma is wheat, with hints of orange and spice. Taste is wheat, grass, and the subtle orange and spice. Perhaps a little too subtle. Refreshing and light though.

Onslow (1152) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle, sampler form Salute! in Kalamazoo. Cloudy yellow brew with white head. FIne aroma of spice, orange peel, coriander, yeast, wheat malt... Taste is sweet malt at the very star, spice and yeast up front with spice, orange peel, lemon and pepper emerging in the swallow. Ends with a spicey and peppery flourish... Pepper is well done as it comes and goes in the finish without lingering too much (except for a tingle on the gums) - good stuff!

Las Vegas, NV - Smith’s Food & Drugs - 12 oz bottle. Hazy dark golden pour, silky soft white head. Buttery aroma with some, slight clove accents. Flavor has some nice coriander spiciness, some citrusy lemon, a touch of butter. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyed by the pool at my hotel after hiking in Zion.

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

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy deep yellow body with a frothy, white head, mostly diminishing. Anemic aroma of toasted grain, coriander, flowers. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The spices just aren’t working well with the hops and malts. Unclean, so lacking that refreshing finish in better wits.
