COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is the first in Bell’s Wheat Project. Project comprises five new ales, four in series and one specialty strong product. The first four, Wheat 2, Wheat 4, Wheat 6 and Wheat eight are all made using 55% Wheat (either wholly or mostly malted) and 45% Barley malt. The barley malt makeup is exactly the same in each of the four and consists of three different malts. The total amount of grain in each of the four is also exactly the same, so each of them should have a virtually identical original gravity. The type and amount of hops in each of the four is exactly the same. And the processing through the brewhouse and fermentation is also exactly the same. The changing factors between the ales are the composition of the 55% of wheat used and the type and number of yeast strains used. In Wheat 2 the 55% of wheat is made up of two different kinds of wheat malt, and this ale is made with two different yeasts. Wheat Two Wheats: White, Dark Yeast: Bell’s house ale strain, WLP410 Belgian Wit II

An unclear orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is quite light, what is there is sweet with notes of both wheat and caramel. The flavor is sweet wheat, but also with light notes of grapefruit.

Thanks to Darkover for hooking me up. Golden-orange color with a compact off-white head. Thin, spotty lacing. The aroma is mildly fruity and malty. Light-bodied and fairly lively, with light yeast, wheat and malt flavors. The finish is smooth and has a hint of citrus with a sweet aftertaste. Pretty enjoyable overall.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Jcapriotti (thanks!). Poured a deep and hazy golden color with a larger sized off white head. Upon initial pour, it immediately reminded me of a bowl of Wheaties. Aromas of wheat and yeast with some banana and citrus in the background. Tastes of wheat, bananas, lemons and light cloves. I’d like to get my hands on the other wheat beers.

Bottle. Sweet peach-apple and wheat aroma. Orange yellow color with small head. Slight sweet peach and apple flavor with a mild hops finish. Good body. Less sweet and more hoppy than Oberon. Very nice for an American Wheat.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, clove, and orange/lemon. Not overly carbonated. Taste is similar to the aroma. Very nice beer!
