A: Pours a lighter dandelion color. Pretty good white head. S: Fruity, orange, lemon. Super malty. T: Pretty dry on the palate which is nice. Easy drinking, subtle citrus. Super malty... too malty I think. P: Dry on the palate. Light body. A solid beer here. Easy to drink. Wheat is a little too slight and malt is a little too much but nothing terrible wrong with this beer. I think you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like this beer. Also it signifies the arrival of spring! So you can’t hate that.

The aroma is pretty good, you can feel a strong floral notes, but for a wheat beer I would have expected the nice banana or cloves aromas but actually they are not in there. Regarding to the color is a blond beer with a standard white head. When is tasted is medium bodied, but the alcohol flavor prevail over the others, so there are not malt flavors or hop flavors an at the end just a earthy flavor. I seriously do not understand why everyone gave it such a high score.

Bottle from Beer Cartel 240915. You don’t see many of Bell’s beers in this part of the world so I snap them up when I can. Weighty number this one with solid colour and a head that fades. Good strong body and a fair bit or fruitiness happening.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pub glass. Packaged 5/15/15. Aroma - Bubblegum sweetness, cereal (Captain Crunch?), dare I say orange creamsicle? Appearance - Hazy, deep orange. Taste - Matches the nose completely with a balancing bitterness. Hops, in their own right, bring out bright orange-like flavors. Incredibly unique. If I were a kid again, wondering what a beer smells like, I’d assume it’d be something like this. Palate - Creamy (emphasis), medium bodied. Overall - Lives up to the hype and more. In a style that typically lacks any real oomph, and often leaves me wondering why I just didn’t have a hefeweizen instead, this one is a no-brainer.

maekchu (2836) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. Light wheat nose, floral hop, grain, and a twist of citrus. Very pale straw, thin fine head. Mild wheat, gentle toasty malt note, and a touch of honey. Thin-medium body. Well-blended flavors. Pleasant stuff.

An excellent wheat! Lovely gold pour w/ a white head that leaves good lscing. The aroma is bready, softly sweet, & rather enticing! The taste is clean, crisp, & refreshing! Quite complex for a wheat & certainly perfect for summer! Nicely done!
