Notes/Commercial Description:
Alaskan White Ale has a soft, slightly sweet base with the unique spice aroma of coriander and crisp, citrus finish of orange peel. A light and effervescent body combined with the smooth palate creates a complex and delicate beer that is deliciously refreshing in any season.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Brown glass bottle (I think 355 ml) with standard pressure cap served into a Brown Palace mini-hefeweissbier glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of fair cream & thickness, and average retention. Lightly cloudy yellow.

Sm: Spice: coriander, clove. Wheat. A simple, moderate strength aroma.

T: Spices over top a fully expressive wheat foundation. Pleasant and enjoyable. Pretty simple, but pleasant, enjoyable, and refreshing nonetheless. I respect it because it does more than just lemon peel, a welcome experimental approach to the style. Balanced and built quite well.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavours. Features an increase in dryness and coarseness on the finish, which serves to dry the mouth out and encourage the next sip of the wet and smooth open. A touch thick for a witbier, but all around enjoyable.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable. I'd easily have it again, preferably on draught. While I do think it'd do better without that final injection of dry coarseness, it remains an enjoyable - if simple - witbier that I'd easily recommend to fans of the style.

Would pair well with popcorn.

C+
