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.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2009
12oz. bottle. Sweet, citric and spicy aroma, plenty of orange and coriander to be found, along with lighter notes of honey, wheat grain, perfume and faint clove. Lightly hazy deep golden color, head is slight and subsiding. Some heavy spice and light hop bitterness to start, turning citric and acidic, finishing with a wash of watery sweetness and fading malt. Thin and a bit harsh on the palate, body is light-medium. A little overly sweet, and not well integrated. Underwhelming.

travita (4924) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2009
The look is clear, with an off white head, and a golden color. The smell is wheat, sweet, citrus, some spices, and fruits. The taste is sweet, citrus, and fruits. Ok.

Ernest (7467) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, corn starch), lightly yeasty (dough, sweat), with notes of orange soda, coriander, diacetyl, urinal cake. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A very clumsy, raspy, light-and-watery example.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Nose is cinnamon toast with some orange zest. Hazy Orangey gold color with a medium head. Cotton candy jam on a biscuit with some subtle spicy hops for balance. Big carbonation, medium body, sweet spicy finish. Lots of flavors going on in this, but seems a little too sweet, almost if it was designed this way with the expectation that one would add a lemon. Decent beer though.

Bottle. Lots of spice in aroma and flavor with a hint of orange and banana. Pours with a medium head and light gold in color. Not a bad witbier but once is enough

Nice spice aroma, some definite coriander. This is a pretty good beer. Not too wheaty, some great spices and overall a good wit.
