From the bottle at a friend’s party. Couldn’t judge appearance. Minimal insight into aroma. Crisp taste with cereal/wheat malt, citrus rind, hop spice. Medium body, creamy texture, above average carbonation, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Tap: cloudy & pale golden-orange hybrid body with very small amounts of sediment yeast floating about. Thin, wispy white head leaves the top of the beer bare within moments. Aroma is a little muzzled; orange zest, mild clove, some light cooking spices, a touch of grain, and some powerful wheat all the way through. The taste goes right along with the aroma - big wheat backing with citrus and orange peel notes all over, a touch of spicy hops, almost white pepper-like with a dollop of clove (or some kind of earthy, ester-like spice) in the finish. A little grainy. Refreshing and highly drinkable, a very nice summer wheat beer.

A solid offering from Bell’s. One of the better "summer beers" or one you can just have a whole case of. Great drinkability here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aroma is sweet and spicy with just a touch of floral notes. Flavor is just a little bit sweet but mostly grass and spice from the hops. Feels like an american wheat ale and a pilsner had a baby. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 3/27/2013. Pours hazy and cloudy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of orange, pear, lemon zest, wheat, biscuit, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange, pear, lemon zest, biscuit, wheat, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light banana, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, biscuit, wheat, pepper, clove, light banana, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of malt, yeast, and hop flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wheat ale. All around good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is bready malts with wheat and straw. Taste is light and bready with wheat fullness in the mouthfeel. Over all not bad but doesn’t live up to the hype.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of lemon, orange, wheat, biscuits, and grass. Taste is citrus up front with lemon and orange. Nice malty backbone of wheat and biscuits. Light body with a sticky, slick texture and lively carbonation. Good slightly bitter finish of wheat and biscuits. Very nice beer! If the alcohol percent was lower, this would absolutely be the perfect session beer. An excellent choice on a hot summer night.

Very refreshing on a humid summer night. Wheat beers usually do not impress me, but this one did.
