3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Friend/roomate loved this stuff as he was a Michigan homer. Iíve had this numerous times over the last couple years. Pours a crystal clear yellow with huge white head. Taste is slight malty, roasted corn, green pepper and raw corn. Nothing special.

This is generally my summer beer of choice. Bellís does a great job balancing this beer. Some people complain that it isnít what it was in prior years, but this is a great beer.

Golden yellow color, with very little head. I didnít get much of an aroma. Flavor is subtle mixes of wheat and orange. Has a nice, smooth, creamy feel.

12oz bottle sent from Doug. Pours a golden orange with very little head. Sweet and fruity. I was convinced that this was brewed with honey but after reading the description I guess not.

Was actually drinking a white winter ale and the scan brought this up. Sweet smelly beer with very mellow flavor.

Pleasant, sweet aroma of citrus and wheat. Citrus flavors, mainly orange, blended well with various fruit, mixed spices grainy bread, lemon and orange peel and sweet grassy hints. Aggressive carbonation, creamy and very crisp.
