Complex aroma of wheat and malt. Golden yellow color with small particles, medium white head. Refreshing light flavor with good combination of bitter and sweet. Good summer beer.

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2004
On tap. Pours cloudy yellow with nice white head. Aroma is underwhelming, as is the flavor. It's not bad though, it pretty mild all around. Session ale, quite drinkable. Best wheat beer I've had.

Bottle. Poured a medium white head that lingers for a while. Aroma of fruit and hop. A little cloudy with a darker yellow color. Some sediment. Nice light flavor, Fruity with hop. Not bad.

First off, this is a great summer beer. It is bubbly and refreshing. Poured a color like honey, with lots of little white particles floating in it. The carbonation and hops provide a subtle, tangy, dry bite throughout. Quite a light aroma, but one of fruits. Flavor is rather light, but as I said, refreshing.

I had this on tap at the corner wine bar in broad ripple, indiana. The beer is a nice opaque yellow. The smell is of citrus. The taste is very light and hard to completely define. There is no overwhelming yeasty taste that seems to be present in most wheats. Overall good beer.

Batch 6267, the new 2004 release. This beer looks very nice. I'd call it yellow-orange. The suspended yeast takes a spot and just hangs out there for the whole beer. It doesn't seem to settle at all. It really looks great. Aroma of yeast and wheat. The taste is refreshing as it takes over much of the mouth. There is a sour and spice character to the taste along with a wheaty feel. I plan to enjoy this beer often throughout the spring and summer.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Cloudy golden color. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Flavour is Malty with some citrus and spice from the hops. Finish is dry.

Shag (2834) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Aroma is wheat and sour fruit. Apperance is a murky orange with a moderate head and excellent lacing. Flavor is sour with some oranges, pears, and bananas. A very refreshing summer beer that offers lightness along with complexity. I am impressed with Bells if they can brew a decent American Wheat! Because usually I despise this style of beer. Get out the lawnmower come June and grab this beer!

Aroma was terrific -- I got a vision of sunlight, warmth, fields of ripe crops of wheat and corn. Even though it was a touch old, I enjoyed the yeasty, hoppy mesh, would have it again.
