Dishwater and lemon nose with a touch of hay. Taste is very dry, lightly tart with lots of lemon and light cotton candy, but overall the malt is thin and grainy. Decent.

Bottle. Yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma was light wheat and musty. Light wheat and very tart flavor. Thin watery body. Personally, I expected a little more from Bell’s.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, batch 9861: Pours a clear pale golden with an effervescent ring of white head. Has a tart orange zest nose with a subtle grainy wheat character. Starts with average fullness and a mild wheaty sweetness with a hint of clove before a crisp, tart citric finish. Pretty smooth and drinkable, but a little too tart for a session ale for my tastes.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a straw-golden color with a medium soapy white head. Aroma is light lemon, light wheat. Taste is much the same. I was told this was a Berliner Weiss. It seems that way but a little lower on the acidity and citrus. A good drinker, though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 bottle Pour is a cloudy yellow lighter golden with a loose white head. Aroma is faint, what is there is grainy wheat and only a whisper of lemon peel. Taste is the nose, fairly straight forward grain wheat no spices just a very mild sourness. Palate is lighter bodied, nice carbonation, crisp clean finish. Nice enough. another surprise beer for me from Bell’s

Crisp, lightly lemony, Berliner Weisse-meets-Witbier aroma. Creamy, lightly tart flavor like a dry lemon meringue pie. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 12-oz bottle, picked up from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a creamy white head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, floral hops, a hint of cotton candy, and some pear. Taste has a Belgian Wit character without the coriander. Slightly tart, golden grain malt with wheat, a hint of clove and some yeast. Finish has a slight tart aftertaste with some wheat, lemon zest and tart pear flavors. Nice for the summer months.
