Very cloudy, straw colored brew. Bottle says 4.0% alcohol, which is extremely low, even for a sour beer. Decent but bland.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Archer Liquors. Poured a yellow haze with a big fluffy white head. I liked this more than the Oberon, a bit lighter but more tart. Quite lemony and tart in the scent. A crisp light almost weisse taste with hints of tartness and lemon zest flavoring. Extremely refreshing and quite enjoyable while golfing.

On draft at the Brewvival. Pours a clear yellow with fair white head. lightly tart, and acidic. Good as a palate cleanser, but not that great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had never seen this from Bellís before so I picked up a six pack. Not a bad summer beer, especially when it is 90+. Pours hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, and a little funk. Very light flavor, slightly tart and pretty much plain and easy to drink. Not a bad beer, but not much there either.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Bottle. Itís 96 degrees outdoors, 85 inside. I canít imagine a more perfect beer for right now. Light faintly tart wheaty aroma, neutral yeast and a bit of straw. Colored in lemon and sand with a whitish head. Flavors are gentle, lightly sweet wheat, some signature Bellís minerals and yeast (almost a la Oberon). Ends on some cheerios and candy sugar and dry light alcohol. A super-refreshing nice drinker for a day like today. Iíll take a quarter-barrel of this in my beer cooler, please. Thanks Sean!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
120z bottle. Pours a slighly hazy yellow with a small head that quickly dissipated. Aroma, of slight funk, lemon citrus, and hay. Flavor mainly of lemons with a very minimal, non-offensive level of tartness. Super light body with very soft carbonation. Its very drinkable, but not an impressive offering from Bells.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
brilliant gold with very mild white head. acidic nose. slight bitterness before some sour grainy character that finishes with a touch of sweetness with a touch of floral hop component. a bone dry finish that is crisp and refreshing. pretty enjoyable for what it is, a nice summer ale. similar to a more tart american wheat

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fizzy white head over a hazy golden colored beer. Very light aroma. Easy drinking beer with some lactic acid, citrus, and lemon rind. It was introduced at this tasting as a lawnmower beer. Other than the acidity, there isnít much here

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle buy from Binnyís in Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a pale yellow body with a HUGE foamy head that evaporated in chunks, leaving clumps of lace on the glassí sides. The aroma had a bready sweetness overlaid by a mild lemony tartness. Same with the flavor, only a little more tartness. Okay, but I donít see the point in this when Oberon is around.
