cloudy bright orange body, 2 fingers of head - seems a little light on flavor, but does have some nice notes of citrus and coriander

A wheat ale that’s smooth, but with a slight bitter aftertaste... Not my favorite, but it’s okay

HIGHB4LL (597) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2014
On tap at Williston Brewing Company. Appearance: 1 finger white head, straw color, lightly cloudy, Aroma: light wheat, light funky fruit, light biscuity malt, all very subtle aromas. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slight dry finish, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet wheat and biscuits into light funk fruit overtones that come in halfway through the taste, and finishing with a light floral bitter. Overall, very complex, super unique, very good balance for the complexity, and not overly complex or forward for the style.

Bottle to tulip Orange rind, caramel, cream, and wheat. It pours a cloudy amber with loads of small, medium, and large particulates and a 2 cm long lasting creamy head. Taste is orange, malt, pepper, and hops. Not surprisingly, very chalky and very creamy too.

My favorite Bells offering to date. It is a home run. I like everything about this beer. No complaints. Drink it and you'll see why. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1957) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours with relatively little head and the head is short-lived. S - quite fruity: aromas of apricot and citrus. T - fruity but a little more sour than sweet. Not a big fan of wheat beers but this one’s not bad. Still, not a great finish. M - thin; near watery O - pleasant; has, in my experience, a unique character. {From April 2011 notes}

Can’t believe I have never entered a rating for this one. Bottle (recently shared by goodbyeohio)... Poured hazy, straw yellow with a mild forming head. Lovely wheat tone, with a hint of vanilla, malt sweetness & husky-ness along with fruity esters and some noticeable grassy hopping.

Bottle, pours hazy gold with cream head. Always a signal spring is here in our area as the store signs announce "Oberon is Here". One of my go to summer beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
