A fantastically smooth american wheat beer, I thouroughly enjoyed this one. Color is spot on, a nice hazy body topped by a thin white fronth, hoppy aroma and hoppy taste, very good.

Well Iíve probably had this beer over 100 times and Iíve never rated it, so last night when I had one I figured its about time. Yellowish opaque white in color (served with an orange which I removed) with a white head. The beer is loaded with malt, bread and sweet wheat, and citrus. The flavor is sweet with moderate bitterness, wheat malt blended fresh bread, and a slightly fruity and even more slightly spice. As a wheat beer it has plenty of body and a nice lingering sweetness. This is one of the best summer beers out there, refreshing, not overly hopped or spiced, and well balanced.

Poured a hazy orange gold with a slight amount of white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is sweet and yeasty, but nothing particularly special. Flavor is sweet and light, with bits of sugared fruit and a slight spiciness. Overall, I didnít find this particularly likeable, but it could be me and the style.

This gorgeous ale impressed me first with its aroma. Sweet and spicy with that wheat and yeast aroma that comes from a good wheat beer. Appearance is cloudy yellow in color and white head. Flavors are exciting, spicy and lots of banana. Delicious and complex, itís a wonderful beer that leaves you wanting more.

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy orangey yellow with a small head that settled quickly. Aroma is of grainy/husky malt (hopefully no tannins) with some citrus and some slight fruity esters. Hops come through but barely. Flavor is of malted wheat and sweet caramel malt with some spicy noble hop flavor and moderate bitterness. This beer is definitely made using an English or American ale yeast as the fruity esters common to wheat beers are almost none existent except for a bit of citrus. Body is pretty thin and decently carbonted. Not too impressive to be from Kalamazoo.

Bells never disappoints me, even with a style thatís hard to work with as this one is. Light orange/copper, hazy pour. White head that sticks around for a while. Yeasty aroma, thicker mouthfeel than normal for a wheat, which is nice. Strong malt flavor with the wheat very apparent. Good esters in the flavor, too -- lots of clove and banana.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Light orange pour with a somewhat lasting eggshell head. Aroma is mostly yeast and very mild. Creamy mouthfeel with notes of wheat, banana and a little spiciness. The wheat lingers into the aftertaste. For the style its pretty good. I found it rather drinkable and a good example of a summer seasonal.

on tap, well carbonated. hazy light orange. a good medium bodied quaffable wheat with a spicy finish. good, but overall a bit on the bland side, though not compared to most american wheats.

TAP. Pours a hazy straw color with good carb. and a nice lasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet from the wheat but spicy from the hops. Also seemed a little murky in the smell with lots of harsh yeastiness. FLavor is slightly sweet, malty, a bit grassy, and mildly hoppy. A relatively full body compared to most other american wheats, but still made to style.

Pours a light golden color w/ big carbonation a big thick small bubbled head and some chunks floating in it as well. Scent was initially a nice carmel malt some light fruits and a bit of dough. Palate is fairly creamy almost fluffy w/ a great mouth feel. Flavor is odd at the least a light nutmeg and wheat and an odd hop w/ some very light fruity floral tastes and a mild malt. Overall a great summertime beer.
