Bells never disappoints me, even with a style thatís hard to work with as this one is. Light orange/copper, hazy pour. White head that sticks around for a while. Yeasty aroma, thicker mouthfeel than normal for a wheat, which is nice. Strong malt flavor with the wheat very apparent. Good esters in the flavor, too -- lots of clove and banana.

Growler pour at trailer. Murky gold/amber color with ivory foam. Light pit fruit, mild sulfer, wheat bread, earthy aromas. Tart, tangy, citrusy tangerine, bready, herbal flavors---nice tangy drying finish___good.

Crisp fizzy and dry, with a lovely puffy body. A mellow sweetness, through a predominantly bready flavor. A nice bitter tingle in the center of the tongue too. Summer swigginí

A great summer beer, spicy and delicious. It had been a few years since Iíd had Oberon, and this years version seems spicier. Great beer for 90 degree days...........and its now available in cans!!

Bottle at Gollem in Antwerp (along with 77ships), first time for me, though this is a classic among American wheat ales. Cobweb-lacing, off-white, moussy head over a hazy yellow golden beer with slight peachy hue. Aroma is unfortunately ruined by a lot of DMS (cooked cauliflower), which I am very sensitive to and which I did not in the least expect in a Bellís; after this sulfuric odor fades a bit, I get green banana, soap, white bread, sugared pineapple, peach, mango, yeast. Fruity onset, bit estery with peach, pineapple and gooseberry impressions, medium carbo, supple malt sweet body with soapy and light sourish wheat, light hoppy finish with a somewhat herbal character but not as aromatic (let alone bittering) as it could have been - though like all wheat beer styles, American wheat is not characterized by huge hop quantities anyway, of course. And thus this beer ends mostly with malt sweetness, a bit grainy even, and on the thin side. I expected a whole lot more considering how great Bellís other beers are and the DMS largely ruined this for me so this was the big disappointment of the day, Iím afraid...

355 ml. bottle @ Gollem. Date says 03/02/16. Hazy golden, little white patchy head. Nose is big paper, some cardboard, there is low orange peel, mango, apricot, low grain,Ö Taste is bitter insecticide, herbal, paper, apricot, lots of paper, low cardboard, low esters & orange peel, tad bitter herbs. Body is bit dull, oily, paper. Not really getting the high score here, it doesnít have a pleasant wheat base, hop presence is far too low, most bitterness and taste is paper and mothballs, meh at best this one.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 Yellow color with white foam ring. Light hoppy nose. Sweet, yet light bitter taste with a little weird hop mixture. Dry bitter finish with some tartness in the aftertaste.

Bottle, clean pour little head and a bit of sediment. Light hazy gold, definite wheat/biscuit scent with a trace of fruit. Clean crisp malt, orange, straw, corn. Refreshing yes but not big enough for my typical taste.
