Refreshing and a bit untamed, Fireweed Honey Wheat Beer offers the crisp, quenching character of wheat, the delicate sweetness of premium Fireweed honey and the distinctive flavor of Mount Hood hops.

’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.)

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.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2003
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.

jsquire (4145) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2003
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.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Monsterous head and a meaty aroma. Very light and sweet. Very drinkable. One weakness is that’s it a bit thin. Very good overall.

Golden color, medium head. Mildly hopped, nicely balanced wheat beer. Slight sweetness from the honey. Finish is very clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, no noticeable honey sweetness. A crisp and light honey wheat beer.

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.
