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.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat with a hint of coriander thrown in. The flavor has quite a bit more orange peel in it, as well as some coriander and wheat. Overall, this is a basic Belgian White, with well balanced notes and easy drinkability. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy, pale straw yellow with a white, near 2-finger head. Retention is average. Resulting sparse, holding on for dear life around the edge of the glass. Lots of sediment suspended throughout.

Smell - Wheat and a slightly spicy, slightly citrusy coriander.

Taste - Light wheat and spicy coriander, then heavy grain notes pop through. Finishes with a grainy wheat and a slight citrus twang.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Fizzy carbonation. Leaves a decent bite.

Overall - An average witbier. Fairly basic. Would buy again if options were limited, but there are at least a dozen other witbiers I'd rather have.

A: A very nice white almos yellow color! i woudn say it matches the style specs! very clear for a white, not many starch haze present! very little head on it!!

S: a bit spicy on the nose, with a hint of belgian yeast character! I can get little coriander and some citrus! Not very great aroma!

T: very sweet with a nice balanced citrus taste, low bitterness as it should be! You can percieve that sour tang and funkiness traditional from this style! Nice belgian yeas character and presence!

M: medium body, high efervesence! was hoping for some more carbonation on this one!

O: a pretty drinkable beer for a hot summer day in Texas! Not amazing but worth the try! i would go for a hoegarden!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured a hazy golden color. A very light head which dissipated rather quickly.

Smell: A light wheat smell, but nothing to write home about.

Taste: Definitely a wheat beer. It had a very unique taste, though.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth.

Overall: I would say this is the best Alaskan beer I've had yet. Much better than the Amber.

A: A bit of a haze, dull golden pale, not exactly witbier. No yeast sediment, yet not quite filtered.

S: Corriander, citrus peel, white grapes.

T: White grapes, tangy citrus, mandarin, sugary. Kind of one dimensional here.

M: Very effervescent, quaffable, just no big flavors to think about while drinking.

O: Not the best example of a traditional witbier, just barely a step up than the US macro versions.
