3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a large pilsner glass.
Color is a very hazy yellow. Very cloudy. Pours a thin head that doesn’t last at all.
Smell is similiar to a hefeweisen, just not as strong; cloves and bananas. Taste is quite similar. There is a smooth malty taste also.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A slight bitterness with a touch of alcohol being present.
Overall, this is one of my least favorites from Bell’s. There really isn’t anything to special about this, but it is easy to drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellowish appearance. I’d say more like a summer/spring brew but has some winter spices to it. Some citrus flavors, banana maybe, wheaty-belgian yeast, etc. Aroma a little skunky-sour....citrus balances it out some. Slight hoppy finish. On clearane for about $4 or $5 a 6-pack, so figured I’d give it another try.

Can. Pours hazy pale yellow with large spongy white head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sour lemon taste, abrupt finish. Easy to drink but not that impressive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly sweet and
spicy. A touch of orange peel and some spicy wheat character. Not sure
what’s wintery about it. It seems to have a bit of banana as well as
some nice yeasty spiciness. It’s definitely a tasty beer - but puts me
in more of a summery mood.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big fan of Bell's, but I might just have a bad batch. Label on bottle shows less than 90 days old. Beer poured out very flat. Barely carbonated. Zero head. Zero lacing. Slightly skunky aroma. Taste wasn't as bad as the other indicators were preparing me for. Almost no hop flavor, I'd give an IBU of under 20. For a 5.0 alcohol beer, a Schlitz would be a step up from this. I can't see Bell's letting this leave the brewery, but at $9 a sixer, I'll keep walking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, yellow-lime like appearance. No head. Mild, but pleasant banana, malted wheat, yeast, and bubblegum aroma. Absolutely delectable flavour. Mid bodied, silky, and quite creamy. Extremely smooth combination of banana, bubblegum, yeast, wheat and a quaint finishing hop. Very smooth and enjoyable white.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Light golden and nearly clear body - suprising for a wit. Half inch of soapy white head. Aromas of wheat, apples, oranges, grass, cracked pepper. Moderate spice / pepper character with tangy oranges. Light to medium in body with a subtle fruity sweetness. Mild coriander in the nose and flavor. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s. Sweet aroma, with a nice smooth sweet inital taste and the slightest bite at the end, good complexity. A good beer but I wouldn’t want to drink a six pack of these.
