5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Purchased many, many cases from Bells Store. Hands down my favorite Bellís product of all time. Just a perfect Weizenbock that was so delish.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
For the love of wheat. This beer is a "wheat wine" by style, and it is an excellent example. The fifth, and final beer in the Bellís Wheat . Wheat Love pours to a beautiful, hazy, deep golden, to burnt orange color, with a thick and creamy, white head, and a moderate, to soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting, with aromas of pale and wheat malts, paired with some estery fruit. The palate is slick and oily, on the tongue, with good pale and wheat malt flavors, with hints of estery banana, and pear. Wheat Love finishes with more good pale and wheat malt flavor up front, then ends with a peppery, soothing, mild alcohol burn that lingers. An excellent wheat wine, and an impressive beer, to end the Wheat Project with. Really a great thing Bellís did here. I really enjoyed trying these beers, and Wheat Love Ale was and is a great beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 Pours a very nice, mostly clear, pale golden color, with a thin dense head that fades very slowly to a spotty cap, leaving behind quite a bit more lace than I was expecting.
Smell; thereís definitely a very solid wheat aroma in this, and some yeasty esters very reminiscent of a good hefe-weizen. Thereís also a bit of a sweet fruitiness.
Taste; as I noticed in the aroma this has some similar charactaristics of a hefe, but it also has a touch of trippel going on as well. Thereís the wheat thatís expected, but also a little banana, and some tropical fruits. This is a very interesting beer, and I wish that Bellís would make more of this, instead of just being a one-off release.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a moderate but smooth carbonation, with a bit of a drying finish. Drinkability is very good. I could happily have a few of these in one night if the alcohol would let me.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Jerryís. Hazy yellow with giant, foamy, white head, strong lacing / Light, bright nose of citrus, pine, soap / Medium body, creamy and lush, sweet, good balance, long finish / Elegant, lush flavors of lemon, pear, pineapple, pine, banana, soap, cream / Forget this being a barleywine, but it is one fine pale ale or Bellgian blonde.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells and tastes much like a belgian tripel but darker and thicker. Sweet, hay, maple syrup with banana and butterscotch on the nose. Almost as good to smell as it is to taste. Delicious.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz bottle; Yeast stands out as the aroma alnong with a banana like some Wits Iíve had. Couldy yellow body with good head. Head settled to a thin layer all through beer. Quality lacing. At first not much but the banana flavor. By the middle is a carmel texure to blend with the banana and seemed like a bubblegum at the finish. Banana aftertaste left on palate. Man this was good.

It has a dirty appearence, with flecks of brownish-white stuff floating around in its cloudy golden body. The smell is sweet and wheaty, akin to Fruity Pebbles. The flavor is dynamite; rich but thoroughly drinkable from start to finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slight citrus aroma. Orange and cloudy with a stiff, white head that stays around for a while. Flavor is spicy and complex with hints of clove, anise and pepper.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
For my premier tasting, I shall employ my Oberon-branded weizen glass, just for fun.
Very cloudy orange appearance, lighter yellow at the sides, with an impressive cap of puffy white foam, especially in this glass. Little particles appear, floating about, but they donít worry me any.
Aroma is exactly what youíd want from a weizen. Airy, lightly sweet, citric, delicately spiced, but creamy and lovely. I like it! Nice, nice, nice.
Beautiful arrival on the tongue, as well. Boards the palate with confidence, the spreads wonderful flavors, and floats angelicly off. Delicious! A tasty mix of fruit, with an intriquing texture, very able malt body, tangy all throughout the flavor. This has a zesty citric twist, combined with the larger alcoholic content, makes it quite a fun ride in the mouth. Judiciously bitter, as well.
Halfway into the glass, itís a mite mellower, to great effect. A rare feeling spread through my senses and infiltrates other regions of the body. This is a unique brew, tres suis generis, with a full body, and long citric finish. So singular I canít recall anything quite like it, nor have I had many "wheat wines", but I think I like this better than some others Iíve tried.
I give it a 5 for flavor, for I can think of any way it could be improved upon...itís just right!
I highly recommend it, though, and will pick up more, while supplies last!
