3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aluminum can from South Bay Liquor: Aroma is mild with obvious scents of coriander and orange peel that smells true to traditional witbiers. The liquid glowed a vibrant yellow hue but towards the bottom of the pint glass was a pure color of white transparency. The drink is fruity and taste of peach or apricot juice but does hold a nice spicy profile of coriander and clove. Slight chance of orange peel and pepper in the finish but also has a funky tart after taste that doesnít sit with me well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden coloured body with no haze at all, with a three centimetre tall, slightly soapy whit ehead and a lot of bubbles rising from the bottom, but relatively slow moving. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao, bubble gum, curry, earthiness and some more light spices - complex aroma. Light-bodied; Sharp wheat flavour at first with a hit of spices, some coriander seed freshness, but a curry-like flavour with hits of a slightly spicey note and a little fruit sweetness, but not much of the curacao picked up at all, nor any whole fruit. Aftertaste shows a mild spiciness and a hint of light wheat, but not terribly mild nor refreshing. Overall, a fairly substandard beer for Midnight Sun, but it wasnít bad - and would probably be decent for most brewers. Nice to try, and easy to bring back home with me, as it was a can, but I wonít be bringing any more of this with me the next time up to the last frontier! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington on the opposite end of the country on 05-September-2013.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can From Summer 2013 Secret Santa. Thanks! Cloudy Yellow, huge white head. Smells spicy, clovey, and a good deal of spicy orange. Taste is crisp, with solid crackery malts and then some citrus. Nice amounts of coriander and clove. I did not get any cumin, but that may have been the undefined "spicy" note I mentioned.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cans from Holiday Wine Cellar. Hazy yellow-gold color with a thick fluffy white head that yields some thick lacing. The scent is yeasty, with a lot of barnyard hay, and some citrus notes. Itís light-bodied and clean but not thin and watery like some can be in this style. Fruity and spicy flavors of coriander, orange peel, wheat, and a good dose of herbal hops. Rather dry in the finish with firm hop bitterness. Definitely more hoppy than expected, which I have no problem with. This is a very good beer for the warm summer months. Iím surprised the ratings arenít higher.

Can from Bine & Vine. Pours slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma seems a bit heavy - tripel came to mind. Med minus body. Flavor is stronger than some wits, but not so strong as the aroma suggested. Reasonably tasty. Seems to have an earthy aspect in the finish.
