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.

Golden in color with a white head that settles off fast. Light bodied with slight citrus tones and hints of banana and spice. My nose stuffy, so I can tell much of the aromas, but it seems like a decent white.

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.

Shared with wim at his home. Hazy blond colored beer with no head and no carbonation. Herby yeasty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is herby bitter dry.

Bottle. Thought I had rated this. Glad I checked. It pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has some rather strong orange peel and some coriander spice. Maybe some darker Munich type malts that hide any wheat character. The flavor is ok. Kinda like a slightly better, fuller bodied version of Blue Moon. Mostly orange, little coriander, light toasted malt. Pretty sweet and flabby in the finish, but not a bad drinker. Overall, pretty meh even for the style. At least it’s not over spiced.
