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.

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.

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

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.

This beer pours a hazy pale yellow/orange color with a one inch bright white head. There is nice head retention.

The aroma is rather basic. There is a bit of citrus, and pale malt. Not much else.

The taste is very weak. Some pale grain, and a light bit of citrus. No real spicing which is definitely an issue.

The mouthfeel is thin and lightly carbonated.

Overall it's a nice summer session beer, but not a good example of a witbier.

pretty standard white beer here. pours an only slightly cloudy blonde color with a nice white head. smells spiced or herbed, with fruity yeast and plenty of sweetness. taste for me was too sweet, lots of sugars in there. can taste the coriander, and a bit of hops on the back end. feel is nice, lots of carbonation and a fairly light body. it gets bogged down by its sweetness in my opinion, but the flavor profile under all that is quite nice. not my favorite beer from these guys though.
