Pours a murky golden color, small white head. Aroma is bananas, spice, sweet, with a little bit of funk on the nose. Flavor is sweet and smooth. More bananas, and wheat make up the body of this one.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew poured a unnoted head size of foamy finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was cloudy and orange brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of funky off dirty underwear. Its mouth feel is initially smooth with a lingering palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained wheat malt notes. This brew is smooth and balanced. Just very hard to get past the aroma.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy yellow copper, with some foamy white head. Nose is citrus with some smoked wheat and lots of funky yeast. Taste is more of the same. Creamy, tangy, earthy, yummy. Nice malt backbone.

Cloudy orange color. Small tight carbonation that tingles at taste. Sweet but not overly. Some banana flavor but mixed with a belgium alcahol.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The culmination of the wheat project in many ways. Hazy pour that suggests the depth of ingredients. Nose is all yeast and spice assertiveness. Mouthfeel is thick and full. Flavor is all wheat complexity stirred together in a porridge that is richly dense and enjoyable. Yeast appears throughout. A nod to wheat enthusiasts that is much appreciated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. I think this might be the best one yet. Smells like a mellowed out #8, but the taste is nothing like it. Definitely a nice strong wheat, with some sweetness, and other usual wheat beer notes. It’s been a nice ride Bell’s has put us on.

Huge, almost tart,smoked wheat and yeast, and slight belgian notes on the nose. Rich wheaty,sweet and spicy mouthfeel, lingering sweetness but not cloying. Almost wine like on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy apricot color with a finger of dense clean white head. Wheat aromas are very strong. It has a yeast and wheat base and some bananna, pepper, and spices come underneath. It’s a very clean and defined wheat aroma. The first sip unveils a bold feel more than anything. The creamy head really sits around and contributes to the full feel along with the large amount of wheat and malt that appears to be here. Wheats are sharp and tangy on the tongue. Lots of wheat character and a gristy grain feel which settles spicey and peppery on the tongue. This is nicely built, especially as esentially an experiment with loads of malt and yeast.
