Bottle 2006 batch. Pours a nice light, golden, honey brown. Aromo is a little weak for me. Light yeasts and malts. With a touch of wheat coming through. Nice white head, that gets small but sticks around. Wow, this would be a nice beer to enjoy after a hot day of yard work. Very light ob the tongue. Wheats, malts and a few hops are present here. With just a hint of citrus bite to it. Very nicely done Bells!

HomesickAlien (20) - Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2006
Here in Michigan people get excited about this beer as it’s seasonal, so I decided to finally try it for myself. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head, lots of dense lacing. This is a very pretty beer. Aromas of wheat, grass, yeast, banana, orange. Smells very fresh, nice. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma unfortunately. Typical wheat beer taste with hints of the afore mentioned flavors and a gentle hop bite. Finishes clean and slightly sour. Mouthfeel is light and watery with moderate carbonation, refreshing. This is a nice summer brew, not outstanding, but still pretty good. It’s worth trying, I just don’t see what all the fuss is about.

Zinnamon (40) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2006
Very subtle aroma, smells like a flower garden. It poured to a golden yellow. Almost like a carbonated pee, but in a good way. A simple beer but very tasty for its purpose. Great for a hot day. It was very difficult to put my finger on the taste of it but you could definetly not taste any alcohol. Oberon was wheaty and I enjoyed the taste but it was nothing out of the ordinary.

Pours a light yellow orange. Looks a few shades darker than a pilsner. Straighforward wheat flavor and aroma of fruityness. Very distinct taste. Not bad, maybe its not warm enought outside yet.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Original rating 4/13/2006 On tap at the Red Hawk

After a series of lovely experiences with Bells, this one has been my first disappointment -- and it’s a considerable disappointment.

The beer pours cloudy and fizzy with an orange peel aroma and a spicy/pepper overcarbonation that comes out prickly and heavy on the stomach. The flavor is rather bland, and overwhelmed by the carbonation.

6/3/5/2/9 Revisit 7/5/2013 Very nice American wheat. My palate had a lot of growing up to do first time around. I’m replacing rather than averaging the two ratings.

pours a slightly hazy light amber/yellow with lacy head. subtle aroma of banana, lemon, orange peel, wheat... flavor starts bitter moving to creamy with walnut and fruit ending with a bubbly hoppiness.

Bottle, served in shaker. Yellow Golden color, hazy. Nice frosty head. Aroma is pleasant with fruit/orange. Great spicy hop flavor which is well balanced. A bit of lacing on the glass. A nice clean finish. Medium-thin bodied. Enjoyable refreshing beer with a good balanced flavor.

vyvvy (5857) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2006
Pours a hazy golden/yellow - very active carbonation. Aroma is of musty apricot and smooth wheat - very nice combination. Taste is smooth wheat walt with apricot tones. Very rich buttery mouthfeel with noticable carbonation. Very nice lacing on the glass. As it gets further down the glass banana flavors come out and a bit of astringecny. Very nice enjoyable beer.
