Transferred over from my tasting notebook and edited for clarity. Might as well work on this task in my limited free time in alphabetical order I suppose.
I was really excited to learn that WI was going to get some beer distributed from Alaska, it seemed so exotic, so far away. Poured out a translucent darker gold color, one finger of foam that dissipated in about a minute, no real lacing. I was expecting a lot more head than this. Thinner bodied, but effervescent like a soda with the level of carbonation present. Smells of light grains and orange zest with some minor murky floral hop undertones, taste follows the nose to a T. But I failed to detect as much complexity as I have had in other witbiers... I can't find any coriander, any tartness, or spice. Hopefully Alaskan Brewing's other offerings are better than this was.
