Has little to no aroma to it. It appears as if its almost a beer struggling to discover its identity. Super sour at the same time has a sweetness. Definitely didnít like the after taste as it left you struggling and pondering what you just consumed. My tastebuds wonít be forgiving this one any time soon.

Solid berlinerweiss style ale. Clean and crisp wheat beer with a hint of tartness. Could be one of my favorite brews from Bellís. Aroma is a bit weaker than I would like but still solid for the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has a nice grainy scent to it with a bit of lemony citrus intermingled. Appearance is a clear golden with a medium white had that diminishes quickly and really carbonated in the glass. Taste is subtle refreshing, lightly sour, wheat, lemon, and overall realyy clean and smooth. Palate is light, aquious, soft and aprupt. Overall, Really nice session beer. I could sit outside and drink these all day. Cheers!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Dutchís for $1.67. very pale yellow color, totally clear. Minimal white head. This has to be drunk two big gulps at a time to get any aroma out of it. This is how itís designed - as a session beer, it should be drunk quickly. At 4%, itís safe to do so. But at $1.67, itís still premium on the wallet, and Iím not so sure if itís worth it. $1.33 would be more the sweet spot, but I still wouldnít buy it, honestly. *Maybe* if it was $7 a 6-pack and I was buying it for macrobrew-accustomed guests. When drunk quickly, it has a citrus-lemon aroma with a skunky back-bone. The carbonation is a bit too strong to do this efficiently, though. Some sweetness. Iíve been trying to rate this one for awhile just for completionís sake (I am a Bellís fan), and have accidently purchased the "Lager of the Lakes" at least twice instead of this one. Iíve heard enough mediocre reviews of this one to not be too disappointed, however.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
this beer had a clear yellow-gold pour and gave a one finger white head that collapsed quickly to an open cover and ring,
effervescence appears light, this beer left a few spots of lacing on the glass, there was a cake like layer of medium brown sediment on the bottom of the bottle,
there were light aromas of wheat and faint bread with a fresh, crisp lemon scent in the background, very light bread sweetness,
the flavors were light wheat and bread, some crisp lemon, and very little sweetness,
the mouth feel was light,
this is a light refreshing drink on a hot Summer day, that could be gulp down by the bucket.

Beer sucked out loud. Tasted exactly like Miller Lite, and that ainít good. There was no tartness or wheatiness to it. Fizzy yellow beer. First bells I havent liked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nothing too special here. What can I say? Its wheaty (like a wheat beer-- thought not very sweet) and citrus hoppy (like an ale). Almost like its a...wheat ale!!!

Bottle. Thin clear lemony colour. Heavy carbonation. Soapy aroma. Subtle lemon flavour, a bit sour. Not bad.
