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.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2011 Transparent macro-yellow gold, no head or lace. Smell was very faint, but I could pick up some sweet wheat, and lemon citrus. Taste lost the lemon, but picked up with the orange zest. Wheat and coriander were there too, but it was all in a sort of sublte way. As unforced as the flavor profile was, it kinda worked for the beer as a whole. The texture was softly carbonated, and the light-medium mouthfeel with a definitive flavor made it a smooth and kinda refreshing brew. Crisp and delicious, this might be one of my favorite witbiers, despite its bold profile or lame appearance.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Golden pour with a thin white head. Nose is sour with bready notes. Burst full of carbonation at the start, moving into with a thin watery start full of wheaty dough. Moves into a more toasted, dainty finish. Not rich in flavor, mouthfeel, or significant spice but fairly well balanced and a possible session beer.

Bottle. Orange, clove/coriander, dank basement and wheat malt aroma. Slightly hazy pale yellow color with small head. Light sweet-tart lemon and wheat malt flavor. Light body. Not bad but not much to it.

I was impressed with this brew on tap. slightly cloudy with a taste of orange in the after taste. I had this on tap in Anchorage and was extremely happy i had 4 or 5 that night. Didnt want to move on to a new beer

The Alaskan White ale is a beautiful golden yellow in color. It has a light body and crisp residual flavor of orange. This beer lacks significant taste but is balance well.

nuplastikk (5960) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-yellow. Thin, quick fading head. Pleasantly sweet orange aroma. Medium bodied, quite refreshing. Doesnt really have much of the thick, wheaty vanilla tones that I like in a white, but it still holds up pretty well. Some herbal citrus bite, but nothing overboard. OK beer, clean but rather unexceptional too.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head that fades. Aroma of hay, very mild orange and yeast spice. Taste is equally bland. I kind of expected more flavor from this but then again it is very easy to drink and a good sessionable Wit sense its not overly sweet.

RedSox2004 (1799) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Hazy yellow/orange with an off-white head and just ok lacing. subtle aromas of wheat, lemon, and spices. Flavor matched the smell, with nothing really presenting itself very strongly. Medium body, high carbonation, slightly watery mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. There are better examples of the style.
