Another very refreshing, easily accessible beer that, given half a chance should be able to convert some macro-only drinkers...

Thanks to beer handy for this. This is my first new Bellís style in a while, and Iím psyched about that. Unique aroma of hopcit, fruit, malt, some corn flakes, grapefruit, and bread. Pours very turbid orange, looking like a glass of extra-pulped orange juice. Man, this taste is complex, with malt, huge bread, varying levels of citrus including grapefruit, orange, and some banana and spices. Smooth palate, but not as firm as the color of the beer would suggest. As it warmed, I noticed more breadiness and black pepper. This is a very good wheat beer.

A golden beer with a fading head (how unwheat beer like). Citrus and Cake aromas Smooth wheat flavor hints of spice (clove, banana) nice balance and easy drinking

Beautiful beautiful color. Canít say that itís typical of AMerican wheats but I liked it. In fact I liked it so much that I named my cat after it!

Cloudy orange, thin head for a wheat. Slightly orange wheat nose. Flavor is nutty, wheaty orange. Too sweet. Clovey?

Bottled at the DC gathering. I was disappointed with this one. perhaps it was always going to suffer in comparison with all the big, beefy beers I had been tasting before it. Itís quite fruity (melons in there somewhere) but I found it rather run of the mill. I know itís the style but, without the banana esters of German wheat or the spices of a Belgian, I struggled to find much of interest. Iím sure it would be fine as a summer quaffer and may have impressed more in less exalted company.

Startling color of goldenrod leaning towards green. Bespeckled with suspended motes. Miniscule head and little carbonation. Massive buttercream and caramel nose with apple, hay, and a hint of cumin. Slight caramel again leads the flavor, with supporting roles being fruity unripe peach tartness, butterscotch, wax, and minerally wellwater. Light and creamy palate. Clean finish with a chalky afterfeel. Ho-hum wheat ale oddly dominated by diacetyl and buttery yeast.

Typical summer ale, light bodied, light-medium carbonation and a cloudy pale yellow. Pours a one-fingered, white head that settles quickly but leaves some lace. Looking for the wheat and not finding it, this is a pale without the bitter hoppy aftertaste. 12oz bottle $1.75, from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY.
