TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2010
On tap at Hopcat (Grand Rapids, MI). Hopcat 25 Bells tap event for RBSG kickoff! Pours a hazy murky golden hue, a touch of orange. Aromas are a good clove base, touch of herry, banana esters move in with wheat bread, wheaty bitterness, smooth sweetness. Initial is a bit of sweet cherries, faint tartness, banana and pear. Wheat bread, light malty sweetness. Decent summer wheat beer

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Served on draft at Hopcat in Grand Rapids, and labeled there just as Poolside Pale Wheat. Pours a pale orange color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention . Nice lacing. The aroma is bready and spicy with caramel and faint fruity notes. The taste is tart fruity notes, bread and spice. Medium bodied, Quite tart and fairly interesting beer.

phaleslu (9249) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Draft pint at International Tap House-Soulard. Pours a hazy, dull orange with reddish tints and a small, resilient white head. Aroma of tart cherries, wheat, and yeast. The cherries struck me right away in the flavor, too, which also has bready malts, yeast, wheat, and some mild spice along the lines of coriander. Medium-bodied, with a tart, bready mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Decent wheat ale, easy to drink and sessionable.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Guest draft at Revolution. Pours a cloudy pink/orange with an off white head. Nose is mellow with wheat and cherries. Good cherry flavor, almost a little bit of orange and other citrus, and good wheat flavor to match. Interesting and tasty.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Draft at Revolution. Pours a very cloudy pinkish orange with a lasting white head. Nose is tart cherries, wheat bread and light spiciness. On taste, the cherries really come through quite nicely. Kind of like a wit with cherries, some citrus peaks through as well as more of the wheat notes. Very refreshing and natural tasting. No odd industrial notes. Quite nice.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JUL 8, 2010
On tap at a Bells fest. This beer is very solid and a great summer dinker. It had a great wheat backbone with a very nice cherry aspect. Its muddy as hell on the appearance, but very nice on the tongue. That’s just how fruit wheats go, as far as appearance. Another good Bells!!!
