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.

Murky, pale yellow. Thin white head. Lacing is moderate. Aroma is very fragrant and fresh. Great corriander notes with a little orange zest coming through as well. Flavor is very well received. Nice wheat base with great spicing accenting. Freshly crushed corriander, lemon, orange... Very refreshing a flavorful. One of the better wits I've run across. Lingering dryness begs another sip. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Great wit.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 04/10/09.

Pours a mostly clear golden color with about a finger of soft whitish head. The head quickly disappeared to almost nothing, poor retention. Aroma is citrusy and spicy, with orange, lemon, and coriander.

Taste is similar to the aroma. Sweet up front with lots of wheat and citrus flavor. Orange peel and zesty lemon are prominent, as is a good amount of coriander and light pepper. The finish is slightly tart with an herbal hop presence. Very tasty with a great spice character.

Feel is very good. Plenty of carbonation helps to create a smooth and light-medium body. The finish is nice and dry. Drinkability is great. I couldn't put my glass down. The low ABV almost makes it sessionable.

Overall, a very good witbier. Very tasty and refreshing for a warm day. Definitely give this one a try.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Murky golden orange with lots of bubbles and a little bit of particles floating around. Good two finger white head that has good retention and lacing.

Smell: Strong scent of coriander spice and oranges with wheat and a little bit of lemon. Also has hints of coconut, banana and other fruits.

Taste: A sweet and spicy mix of oranges, coriander, lemon, and wheat is followed by a strong kick of coconut with a little banana. The coconut adds a tasty and interesting balance in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall: A very tasty and interesting take on a Witbier. I really like the coconut finish. It makes this beer stand out to me among other American versions of this style.

About a one inch off-white head when poured into a frosted heavy beer mug. Head lasted about one minute and left a clean top layer of bubbles. Liquid is a cloudy golden color and has a pleasant slightly fruity aroma. Taste is wonderful and seems to have a hint of coriander and possibly a cinnamon like spice. Mouth feel is very good as is it's drinkability.

I like this one, a very nice product.
