2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has way too much carbonation. HUGE head. Way too much fizz in the beer when drank. Slight wheat smell, slight medicinal smell. Nice orange wheat color. Almost no taste at all because the tingle of the carbonation overpowers the beer. Pretty unremarkable. I hope the rest in the series aren’t this bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured out of the bottle as almost completely foam. The rocky beige head eventually fell to a beer I could drink. Big cereal grain nose with hints of burnt caramel. Copper color with lots of effervescence. Caramel sweetness with lots of expected wheat, almost like that sugar coated puffed wheat cereal from when I was a kid. Strong yeast flavors. Maybe a little thin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy peach copper color, topped by a huge head of frothy off-white foam. Good long head retention and lacing. Tangy wheat in the aroma, a little on the sharp side.
Dusty wheat and cereal grain in the first sip, it starts medium-dry then turns sweet. Interesting. Cereal grain and a tannin bitterness in the aftertaste. Good hops for balance, a touch of yeast flavor. Medium body, very nice smooth and soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of the Bells wheat series. Very carbonated. Huge head that lasted. Wheat is very evident in the aroma and taste. Yeasty as well with a hint of citrus. Finish is slightly bitter with a sour aftertaste. I really want to compare it with the others in the wheat series. Very interesting experiment by Bells.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Landseer for giving this to me to complete the wheat series. Pours orange with a HUGE foamy off white head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity.Mouthfeel is fizzy, not as nice as the two. Flavor of toasted grain, wheat, yeast, lemon, and a hint of smoke. Finish really takes a dive....very strong yeasty notes with an offputting sour and lemony bite. Not a good dunkel. But to be fair...this is about 11 months old. Points for the interesting experiment.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jay (springslicker), Thanks! Progressively darker than the Two was, this one is a dark orange / brown colored beer. Smell is sweet and fruity, with a heavy malt presence and a soapy smell. Taste is lively and probably over carbonated, with some hints of smoke. Not as good as the Two. The second of the four that I will drink today. not bad..

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating taken from notes 07/25/06. Bottle thanks to Styles! Poured transparent brown/copper with a fizzy beige cap, leaving minute lace. Aromas seem to be one dimentional with most of things leaning towards yeasty esters and some dark fruit (plum, fig, prune). There’s some mild hopping that you can tell is here from the aroma, but it’s not like the hops are really speaking out. FLavour seems to be a watered down form of Aventinus. Lots o’ fruity yeast, wood, toasty with an earthy, semi-fruity bitter finish. Pretty spritzy. I’m not asure what to think of this one. Need to try some more to better understand this entire wheat project.

1.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Appearance: very tall head, solid amber color. Smell: light burning wood. Taste: too fizzy to taste anything but alchohol. Overall, it’s bitter as well. I didn’t really like this beer. I’d drink it over the domestic three, but that’s it.
