Alaskan White Ale is based on a Belgian-style witbier , literally translated to “white beer.” White beers, or “ witbieren ,” are named for the suspended wheat proteins creating a cloudy appearance in this unfiltered beer.
In addition to Alaska , Alaskan Amber and Freeride APA in 12 ounce cans will be on the shelves soon in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Witbier, which translates as “ white beer ,” is a low-alcohol wheat beer . It’s traditionally flavored with orange peel and coriander but can also include other spices like peppercorn and ginger.
White beer is defined as an unfiltered, top-fermented wheat beer . White beers traditionally contain few hops to keep the bitterness low. Our Allagash White includes coriander and Curaçao orange peel—though plenty of other spices can be substituted or added.
WHAT IT TASTES LIKE: Alaskan Amber is, first and foremost, a tremendously smooth beer. It is brewed in the traditional old German Alt-style, in which the beer is fermented more slowly and at a colder temperature than most ales, which contributes to its rich malty, well-balanced flavor .
Alaskan Amber was born. In 1988, it was named “Best Beer in the Nation,” by a Great American Beer Festival Consumer Poll. As with all of Alaskan’s beers the label is classy. REVIEW: Amber Alt -Style Ale from Alaskan Brewing.

Altbier , however, is not purely an ale , nor is it a lager . It is a hybrid. It’s made with the pale malts and Saaz hops of a classic German Pilsner, plus some darker roasted grains; then it employs an aggressive, top-fermenting ale yeast that attenuates the wort completely to reduce the sweetness.
