Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bkilpatr on 04-11-2009

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.

looks good, smells good but the taste leaves a bit to be desired. I'm typically a fan of witbiers but with this one the coriander was a little overpowering

Perfect beer. Anytime out west, I try to find a sixer of this. One of my all time favorite beers. The spices perfectly compliment the white ale. Had it straight from the brewery and was even better than the bottle

from a single into a GI tulip

A: dull cloudy pineapple golden yellow with a big 3 finger head that slowly subsides
S: balance of wheat (that is a tad sour) and barley...very (too) faint coriander and orange peel
T: bready and a little sour in the front half, then some faint citrus (orange or lemon) and white grapes on the back...lacks definition when it comes to the spices and any kind of tart flavors on the fruit. Lingering balance between wheat, lemon, and a little coriander.
M: wet, medium carbonation (could stand some more); not as crisp as it might be.

Overall: this is okay, but not great. Even though I was hoping for something more interesting in the taste department, I still found this to be pretty refreshing. Doesn't really strike me as a proper wit...
