3.4/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a keg into a lager glass by my buddy Drake. He poured a bit of a monster head, With tons of lacing. The beer is a murky gold color. The smell is of wheat and lots of it, With some very light malt and perhaps of lemon grass?. The taste follows the smell largely. With some squeezed orange coming through and some slight grape in the mix. The mouthfeel adds some tartness, though a bit too tart for what it is. Overall, A good wheat ale, Would I buy it? Sure, I I needed something that was easy to drink for a medium price that is a nice change from the usual.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16 oz can into a nonic pint.

A: Hazy golden with two fingers of fluffy white head, fades to a slight lace.

S: Citrus fruit, spice, some clove up front. Some bready malt and biscuit but more citrus than anything else.

T: Very similar to the nose, spices, lemon, a bit of doughy flavor and some earthy tones. Well rounded and tasty.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation and low bitterness. Refreshing and smooth.

O: A very nice pale wheat here from Bells, and the 16 oz can format makes it even better.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a can. Slight, white wheat. Pours a cloudy gold (this is unfiltered, unpasteurized) but a nice color overall.

Slight hopiness but blends nicely with the rest of the flavor profile. Hints of biscuit and a little citrus.

Smooth drinking with a nice even finish.

Overall this is an above average wheat ale. Definitely on the buy again list.

$ 3.50/16 oz draft at Unos’ at Birch Run
Aroma of malt
Head chopped by bartender – what remains is small (1.5 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing OK – small rings with small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins bitter followed by a short generic citrus burst; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends quickly, no aftertaste.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

This is classified as a pale wheat ale on BA. What I had was unlike any wheat beer I’ve ever had. I last had it in 2006 and I guess I’ll wait another eight years before I try it again.
