Decent, but uninspiring witbier. Dull gold pour, slightly cloudy, thin head. Some aroma and depth, but mostly malt and a touch of spice. gator2683 (199) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 14, 2009
clear gold with small white head. light aroma with mostly malt and a little spice, a little flowery too. dry citruis flavor, light body 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2009
light haze, corn yellow colored body, soft white head. nose is spicy and fruity coriander and madarin oranges, light grassy hop note. medium to light body, fizzy and thin (slightly syrupy) texture. heavily spiced for such a light body, it’s a bit overdone. decently crisp finish, moderatley dry, lightly acidic. overall a run of the mill witbier, not terrible, not exceptional, just a little too floral and soapy.

First of all, I’m not a big fan of witbiers. That said, here’s my review of Alaskan’s White Ale. Very colorfully yellow for a wit, clear, with an aroma of yeast and light spice. Citrus, orange flavor with more yeast and coriander, but with a light mouthfeel. Still, nothing to change my preference toward wits. alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle as part of a mixed 6. Nose is light weat, then a ton of orange peel. Flavor is the citric orange peel and spiciness - some yeasty wheat in the background, but the orange completely dominates.

Bottle poured a hazy gold with a small loingering off white head. Aromas of wheat, coriander and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat coriander and a hint of citrus with a crisp spiced finish. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with paiste2002. Pours a very hazy gold with a moderate white head that almost made it to mid-glass and left spotty and patchy lace. Mild aroma of wheat grain, orange and spice. The flavor is again wheat grain, orange and coriander that is more discernible in the flavor than it is in the aroma. Refreshing and easy to drink. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2009

Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of honey, spice, grass, light floral esters, hints of caramel. Generally medium body with a pleasing wheat finish. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Draft. Amber beer with a whitish head. Spice and light wheat aroma. Wheat and malt flavor with light citrus and light spice. Medium bodied. Wheat lingers with some earthiness, spice, and light citrus. CanIHave4Beers (4224) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Pours a light hazy pale color with a medium fluffy white head. The aroma is bready with floral, orange, and clove notes. It smells kind of sweet but appetizing none the less. Flavor is lemon with a clearly defined orange peel character with some light spiciness. There is a bitterness here that borders on astringent and it’s almost bad, but almost brilliant at the same time... know what I mean? No? I’m not sure I do either. At the same time there is that fruity pebbles thing happening that I’m never terribly fond of unless it’s paired with some other kind of remarkable or unique flavor, here it is not. In this case the fruity pebbles are fairly muted so it’s not cloying or annoying, just kind of there. This is very refreshing.
