UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Draft, at KBC, Oct. 20, ’03. Cloudy, good color but no real head. Lemony flavor, certainly spritzy and refreshing. KBCís taproom, the "Eccentric Cafe," though, leaves a little to be desired. Exposed brick just makes it seem cold, not much crowd (of course it was football Sunday and they had no TV). Seemed to be run by artsy college students.
Re-rate: Draft, 2006. I found this on tap at Wishbone, a Cajun restaurant in Chicagoís West Loop, right across from Oprahís studios, as it turns out. Was able to enjoy it much better here. Nice orange body again, very hoppy and spicy nose. The first taste hits both Saaz and lemony flavor of a wheat beer. My impression is revised upward.
Bottled. Aug. 18, 08. Batch #8613 My first "official" Bell’s purchased since they came back to Illinois: Pours amber-yellow with a fizzy white head. Smell of lemon with a touch of cider, some yeast. Hazy. Toasty malt and wheat flavor, a little citrus taste. Lacks the spiciness I find with other American wheat beers. Orange character arises later on. No distinct hop impressions. Actually a little heavy for summer swilling, but I just bought this sixpack in mid-August; it’ll settle in nicely for fall.

Nice enough. Cloudy blonde colour with some wispy white head. Orange and lemon first on the nose, then crackers and a hint of spice. Body smooth and wheaty, well carbonated. Bit of spice in the taste too.

5 liter can. Slight yeasty aroma, with a cloudy, hazy appearance. A little carbonation. You can feel the tiny little bubbles. Mildly astringent mouth feel . Faint black pepper taste with some wheat. Crisp thin body This would be a great beer for summer parties!

Draught at Bell's Eccentric Cafe, Kalamazoo, MI. Slightly cloudy golden color with a small white head. Mild floral hops, citrus and wheaty maltiness in the aroma. Not that strong aroma. The flavor is citrusy hops, hints of bitterness and malt. Easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Exceptional wheat beer aroma, citrusy and refreshing. Crisp bite with excellent flavor. Not too powerful, the taste of this beer has nothing in excess but is a perfect cold summer beer. If a 15th century landsknecht marched twenty miles through Bavaria in the heat of the summer and came upon an ancient village brewery with a wheat ale recipe passed down through generations and filled a goblet with a cold bite from the cellar, this is what I imagine it would taste like. So satisfying!

From notes. Sweet, and wheaty, like Michael Jordan.
It didnít leave a big impression on me, but it was light, lightly hopped, and a little fruity.
