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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
