Pilsy, urinary aroma. Flavor is clean golden malt with some spicy hops. Wheat, pickles, and banana round out the flavor bill, running into a medium body. Slightly above average, but not what I’d expect from Bells. A crisp early summer beer, but not a favorite.

Bottle. Clear, golden in color with a wisp of a white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Nice hoppy flavor. Clean mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Nice beer. Yeasty. Drinkable.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2005
Poured a yellow with a nice, very creamy head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavors of pine, spice and some lemon with a not over the top bitter finish. Great beer to enjoy at the UW Terrace outside on an early spring day.

kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2005
definatly pale. kind of a pale golden. thin white head diminishes quickly and leaves a little lacing. aroma is malt and hops. taste is the same. has a nice bitter bite to it. not bad but nothing to write home about.

Nuffield (4107) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2005
It poured clear before I poured in the slurry from the bottom of the bottle. Light hefe color, yellow, yeasty floaties. Frothy palate, yeast-driven flavor, late bitterness. Sort of a Hoegaarden meets saison meets some hops. Leaves me sort of flat.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2005
Yellow-cloudy with slight hops and cooked pinto beans. Sweet hops with touch of lemon. This one borders a witbier. Floral aftertaste that is a bit weak. Good taste but lacks body.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2005
Blond/gold/orange pour, much thicker than anticipated. Unfilitered, little floaties everywhere. Creamy thick white head. So far so good. Citrus bitterness throughout with a bitter dry finish. Very good, light and drinkable yet somehow thick and substantial. I know that doesn’t make sense. Leaves me wondering what this would be like with more malts and alcohol, probably not the same beer or style of beer.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Bottle. Clear yellow until you pour in the yeast slurry, then it looks like a witbier. Nice spicy flavor.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2005
12 oz bottle. Yellow with a nice thick white head, floaties. Malty fruity aroma, with a touch of hop. Nice malty brew with a pleasant hop flavor and a touch of bitterness. Hoppy finish. Nice mouth feel.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Pours a golden color, small white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of lemons and other citrus fruits. Flavor is crisp, some floral flavor ontop of the hops, lots of malt for an APA. A very nice apa.
