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.

Pretty innocuous brew, spearheaded by pepper and mild citrus notes. Would be good in a large, frosted mug with an icy handle (a lot of winter connotations going on here). The spice tends to linger a little too harshly at the end, but overall this is airy and smooth ale gets a passing grade - just watch out for that vulturous citrus character that plucks at your tongue.

Lots of orange and wheat in this one. Not much else though. A bit off in the taste, but may not be the freshest. Decent, but doesnt have that belgian yeast influence.

Poured into a weizen glass. Color is dark straw with a white head and a slightly cloudy appearance. Aroma is light banana and clove with some coriander and other spice. Flavor is quite malty for a wheat beer with coriander flavor present throughout as well. Palate is light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall not a bad witbier, but I think there are better out there.

BVery (9792) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Tap. Light orange/yellow pour. Mild aroma and taste of orange and coriander. A little watery, and the aroma/flavor elements are not bold. Sessionable, drinkable, but not terribly interesting.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2011
gold pour with a light haze and a firm white cap. aroma is slightly grainy, corriander spice and very very light citrusy orange. flavour is a bit of a let down. Mostly corriander. very light wheat. Like a homogenized american version of a white.

12 oz bottle from Princetons. Orangish/yellow pour, with a white head. Citrus & spicy aroma with heavy coriander notes. Tangy, spicy flavor. Orange peel comes out nicely in the finish.

Aroma is mild orange lemon, some yeast, some coriander. Appearance is yellow orange with very small white head. Hazy. Taste is orange, wheat, coriander, spicy, yeast. Palate is almost medium and crisp. Citrus and coriander linger on tongue. Overall a nice Wit.

Beerdrinker79 (2084) - Idaho, USA - MAY 4, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours clear pale golden with a way too thin head, what keeps the appearance score above a 2 is the lacing, decent. The aroma is very strong orange, a little spicy, clean. The flavor is wheat, orange rind, good and sessionable, but pretty boring, I think it is one of those beers that would actually taste better out of the bottle. The body is thin, carbonation is medium. Overall decent, but have had alot better, wont buy again.
