2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
dusty yeasty aroma, apricots. Understated. Pours a murky orange, thin head. Bland in the middle. Strong alcohol finish diminishes refreshing finish that should be present in a wheat. Below par for Bells.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, light amber appearance with an average size, white head and light lacing. Soft fruit and wheat in the aroma. Fruity, flowery taste complimented by some mild hoppiness. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated with a finish that is slightly bitter. On tap at Kclingers.

On tap. Pours very interestingly, looks almost like a smoothie or an orange julius. Light lemony wheat flavor. Tasty, and very thirst quenching on a hot day.

(draft) Bright and fizzy. This would probably be good if it was a hot enough day. Like a million degrees or something.

This blond wheat beer poured with a short white head, eliciting a strong, fresh aroma. The flavor is light with a slightly biting finish. Great beer on for a hot summer day.

As far as American Wheats go, this is one of the better ones! Nice hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Light on the hops. Goes down real easy.

12 oz. bottle. I donít really understand why so many raters are dumping on this beer?! the stats page looks like a yo-yo. why not rate a beer for what it is, within the style it has been placed? IMO this is one of the better thirst quenching flavorful Amer. wheat I have sampled. I may have just found a new summer session beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - July 6, 05 - Aroma is pungent of wheat and stale hay. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a small head and some lacing. Flavor is kind of mild with wheat, lemon, and a touch of malt. Palate is slightly sticky and sour. Not bad on a hot day, but not what I rememeber from the old "Solson" days...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy deep golden yellow witha thin ivory head. Smells of crisp wheat malt.
Tastes of grainy wheat. Hints of lemon and farina (!?!). A bit bland really. Mouth is crisp. Pretty drinkable I guess. A half step up from most boring American wheats but that is faint praise indeed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy gold w. fine head. Aroma is a light, refreshing miex of coriander and orange. Very mild taste, but refreshing version of the style with an orange citrus dominance.
