COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is the first in Bell’s Wheat Project. Project comprises five new ales, four in series and one specialty strong product. The first four, Wheat 2, Wheat 4, Wheat 6 and Wheat eight are all made using 55% Wheat (either wholly or mostly malted) and 45% Barley malt. The barley malt makeup is exactly the same in each of the four and consists of three different malts. The total amount of grain in each of the four is also exactly the same, so each of them should have a virtually identical original gravity. The type and amount of hops in each of the four is exactly the same. And the processing through the brewhouse and fermentation is also exactly the same. The changing factors between the ales are the composition of the 55% of wheat used and the type and number of yeast strains used. In Wheat 2 the 55% of wheat is made up of two different kinds of wheat malt, and this ale is made with two different yeasts. Wheat Two Wheats: White, Dark Yeast: Bell’s house ale strain, WLP410 Belgian Wit II

An unclear orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is quite light, what is there is sweet with notes of both wheat and caramel. The flavor is sweet wheat, but also with light notes of grapefruit.

Bottle... Lightly hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is fruity and grainy with a malty note of honey. Mildly phenolic with whispers of smoke and spice. Moderately sweet flavor. Grainy with a pinch of salt. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes crisp and mostly clean. Thanks to headbanger for sending the bottle!

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Jcapriotti (thanks!). Poured a deep and hazy golden color with a larger sized off white head. Upon initial pour, it immediately reminded me of a bowl of Wheaties. Aromas of wheat and yeast with some banana and citrus in the background. Tastes of wheat, bananas, lemons and light cloves. I’d like to get my hands on the other wheat beers.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2006
Thanks to OhioDad. Cloudy yellow orange beer with a thick fluffy head. Very wheaty aroma with a bit of orange citrus and light clovey spice. Also some appley notes. Soft creamy texture, full-bodied. Wheaty flavour, some earthy/noble hop flavour and some light apple/pear fruitiness. Long spicy finish especially as it starts to warm. Quite hoppy as well. Nice beer with a very bready flavour.
