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.

Tastes like butter... In the worst way. The nose is fine, but it is way too sweet and has a dull cream flavor that isn’t british or belgium. At <$4 for 1.5 pints at least it’s well priced.

Perfect beer for the wind down from a hot Iowa day. Bottles served in an Ayinger Brau Weiss glass. Healthy pure white head persists throughout. Small bubble, plentiful carbonation. Hazy, golden color. Enticing pure malt nose tastes exactly as it smells. More body than some of its kind This beer won’t knock your socks off,which would be untoward anyway, but it is a treat and it does quench your thirst, even without adding the orange grove

I thought this was pretty good, certainly not below average as its rating would suggest. Lightly spicy and sweet, it’s a witbier tastes like a witbier. No off flavors or bad aftertaste to speak of

12 oz. bottle. Pour was hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, wheat, coriander. Taste was mild sweet, wheat, coriander, orange, similar to Blue Moon.

On tap at the marathon. Pours orangeish with white head. Flavors of a typical wheat but more subdued. Decent beer.

So I’m sure setting has a lot to do with this rating. Bottle on the stern of the Celebrity Millennium overlooking Juneau and the setting sun. Nose moderate coriander, clove, spice and light wheat. Taste similar to nose, spices and late mid palate sweet. Some grainy malt late.

A child is crying because we are not making cleaning fun. So I am on my 2nd beer.

The first time I tried this was at a bar in Skagway, Alaska. Wanted a bit of the hometown vibe. At the time I thought it was pretty decent, had a second one. Now I find it a bit soft. Purchased with five other beers in a mixer at the supermarket. It looks pretty grand. The color is a pleasant medium gold with a slender white head that does yield a steady stream of carbonation. The scent is grain. Its taste is a very light shot at a Belgian-type brew, a small spiciness and a hint of bitterness. Again the grain or wheat overtone and a slimmer of tropical fruit. Oh well. My tastes have just gone a different direction.

on tap very similar to blue moon, light with citus and corriander notes easy drinking.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a frothy white head and having strong carbonation. Aroma has floral and coriander notes. Light watery body.

This weeks edition of how have I not rated this. Draft 10 oz pour at Yard House. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin fizz head. Some floral aroma, hinted spice, slight Belgian feel. Flavor is gentle and sessionable. Soft wheat and spices. Gentle orange. Cool and smooth drinking beer. A nice longevity beer for football Sunday. I like it.
