Slightly murky light yellow with a small white head. Respectable floral wit nose with coriander and sweet lemons, along with some spicy yeast, reminds me of a nice trippel.. stinging the nose. Perfumy flavor, oily smooth texture, with soapy flower petals and wheat flavor. Fairly good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice cloudy gold with lots of carbonation. No head to speak of once it sits. Aroma is the expected, lemon dishsoap and some spicy clove. Also a nice full wheat bread aroma.The taste is bursting with lemon rinds and some spicy goodness of gingerbread. This is a solid wit. Another great beer from Bell’s.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw body and loose sudsy white head. Aroma is yeasty with lemon/orange citrus, light wheatiness, and mild phenols. Citrusy flavor with mild spice and a phenolic/aspartame quality finish, but not detracting because it fits the beer. Crisp and very refreshing. An interesting beer that blurs an already blurry line between two styles.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice creamy head. Nice mellow flavor w/out too much spices but just enough from the yeast. Med body. Soft and very yeasty. Nice.

Draft: Awesome yellow cloudy color to it , I thought this was exactly like a blue moon except it had a banana flavor to it, I really liked the taste of this as something to change up to once in a while.

Hazy, golden, white head, aroma of citrus, spice and clove, flavor somewhat sweet, spicy, and some clove and citrus. Finishes slightly watery, but overall not a bad beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of the best I’ve had in this style. Pours hazy, with a small, white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is slightly fruity and the taste lingers with citrus and spice that is very drinkable to say the least. A high quality Bell’s product.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, straw color. Short-lived head. Citrus/ tropical aroma. Fruity initial impression followed by a long banana-like finish. A tasty brew, typical of what one expects from Bells.

Thanks to Indra for this!
This pours with the expected frothy white head, hazy lemon-yellow body and aroma of citrusy lemon and orange.
Well balanced with a good finish of tangy citrus and spice. Quite enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, very thin fizzy off white head. Nose of coriander, clove, orange peel, and light pear, with a slight hint of earthiness and white bread. Well balanced, soft spices, with a light bitterness closing it out. Light bodied, light carbonation, spiced drying wheat finish. This would be much better if I were drinking it on the deck in 90 degree sunshine. Still a good session brew that wheat beer fans will dig...
