I've seen some reviews on here that indicate this is better on tap. I hope so because I had some pretty high hopes for this brew and was a bit let down.
A-It's orange in color with 1 finger of head that doesn't stick around long and a litle lacing left on the glass
S-The nose was weaker than expected with a faint orange smell as well as some bread after really searching for it.
T- It has a nice wheat flavor with a slight citrus flavor coming through from a mild hop presence. The bitterness from the hops is a bit underwhelming and I was left wanting more to come through even though it's probably not really keeping to the style. But for personal taste, I wanted some more flavor coming through.
M- The mouthfeel is quite good and is probably the best part of the beer.
D- I'm going to have to give this a try on tap since I was definately a bit let down by the bottle. I am typically happy with Bell's brews but this one didn't really win me over.

Beer pours a cloudy and hazy darker yellow. Some chunks of yeast can be seen suspended in the beer despite a careful pour. Head settles out to a thin collar.
Smells of wheat, citrus and a general yeastiness. Nothing sticks out too much.
The flavor begins with an initial smooth wheat flavor. No real fruitiness. Finishes with a fairly assertive hop bitterness. Bitterness is well short of a pale ale, but stronger than most American wheat beers.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side do medium bodied. Medium level of carbonation.
Straightforward American wheat ale with an enjoyable hop presence that leaves the yeasty wheat flavor intact. A good summer brew, but climbs up a bit in abv compared to many others in the same style. Not out of place though.
