2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear apple juice with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, apple juice, light grassy. Taste is mild and inoffensive, hint of apple juice, hint of grassy bitter, wheat burp. Light body, fairly carbonated. Designed to not scare off the Bud drinkers, and they'll probably never try it anyhow.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small head, slightly hazy, light brown color.
Strong honey aroma. More honey in flavor than
wheat. Just about average but nothing special.
Weak, watery finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow out of the bottle with a nice head. Thin malty sweetness with flavors of honey and apple. Okay beer, but probably my least favorite Midnight Sun.

Monsterous head and a meaty aroma. Very light and sweet. Very drinkable. One weakness is that’s it a bit thin. Very good overall.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
’A bit untamed’? Oy. This is a VERY tame beer. A super light beer for the pounding, this has a very lightly wheaty palate, a touch of sweetness, and almost no bitterness. It’s fairly carbonated and seems to evaporate the minute you swallow. Sound familiar? (I don’t think AB’s worried, though.)

I liked this Wheat Beer, it had the coloring and look of a what you would expect from a Wheat. It had a nice taste that lasted through the finish. I was impressed overall.
