Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 Very smooth. No citrus detected. Occluded and full of particulates. Doesn't taste bad. Doesn't bombard your taste buds either. Had second, didn't impress me anymore than it did the first. An average wheat. I don't know where you are getting yours but mine aren't very good.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Light, crisp, citrus, wheaty nose. Cloudy golden orange in colour with a thin head and visable carbonation. The flavor starts out wheaty and sweet and kind of citrusy ends with hops and moderate bitterness. Overall, Good

Cloudy orange in colour. Aroma of sugar, slight hops, peaches and some yeast. Flavour started sweet, turning to hops with a medium bitterness. Finishes smooth, creamy and a quick bitterness.

jgb9348 (5008) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Very subtle yeastie aroma mixed with a small amount of citrus. Served without a lemon; Medium to full-bodied; Great wheat & yeast taste...whle the yeast is subtle, the body shows through, and the malt is noticeable as well. Not too many crazy characteristics to mention, but this beer is one of the best wheats i've ever had...regardless of country. I had mine from a 16 ounce glass served on draught at the Polish Village Cafe in Hamtramck, Michigan on 14-August-2003.

A very cloudy orange-yellow brew. Not much aroma nor flavor, however. Drinkable, but overall I think this one is over-rated, indeed! Nods to PsychProf for supplying this one to me.

This beer pours a very orange color with a medium white head and moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma is filled with hints of citrus and other fruit along with wheaty characteristics. The taste was surprisingly low in wheat and very smooth. This is one of the first Bell's beers that I've really enjoyed drinking and I would recommend this to most people.

Slightly murky yellow. Wheat, lemon, and light citrus on the nose. Flavor is bright and sweet lemon with ginger. Balanced sweetness with slight sour from the lemon presence. Quite enjoyable.

I saw myself skipping through a wheat field with pigtails.(Even though I am not a girl)Birds and bee's abound as I frolicked joyously lost in a field of bliss. The beer fairy hovered overhead with a long straw that was attached to a tank of Oberon. Wheeeee!!!!

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Cloudy orangish color.Aroma has a faint smell of fruit and hops.Some fizziness in the mouth with a wheat flavor.Finishes somewhat smooth and sweet. Not bad for a wheat beer.
