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.

Slightly hazy yellow color with a thick head with good retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Light aroma of banana, bubblegum and much later orange peels.
Flavor with lots of bubblegum, mild spices and sweet oranges. Hints of coriander.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
I love Alaskan beers, but this one was a bit disappointing, too bland on spices for a Witbier. Likely just an attempt to have a high volume beer under their brand. Well, I believe Witbier is the beer type with highest growth in the US (IPA is number two).

Nose: Hints of orange and coriander and light bread but the spices are muted and a good does of barley malt.
Appearance: pours more gold than white or straw and less cloudy than a Wit but does have a very creamy white 2" foam cap.
Palate: the wheat and barley malt flavors are fairly balanced - could use some more wheat and could use a little wheat tang. the spiciness is a little muted.
Body: medium to a little above medium on the body, medium high carbonation.
This is a decent, drinkable, refreshing summer ale but will disappoint if you are expecting a wit.
