3.3/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Pours a cloudy, golden orange with a one finger fresh white head. The head fades quickly and the lacing is minimal. Smells of wheat and citrus, but very little, if any hop aroma. Tastes of wheat up front, w/ a dry cereal component. Finishes crisp with light citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit too highly carbonated for my liking.
Overall, a refreshing summer beer that I would have again but would not necessarily seek out.

3.71/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Beer is cloudy orange-golden in colour, with a small to medium sized white head that fades quickly.
Smell contains wheat and dry cereal. I don't get a lot of hops from the nose.
Taste contains wheat upfront, with a decent hop component, but not as flavourful as I would have expected. Some light fruit. Dry cereal.
Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Heavy for a wheat.
Overall, disappointing. Not bad but not something I would go back to.
Serving type: on-tap

I have had a couple of different Bell's beers and this one was not my favorite. It was good by most beer standards but by Bell's standards I don't think it is their best.
It had a very nice appearance. It poured a nice golden honey color with a very nice head around 3/4 to 1" and some nice lacing on the glass.
It didn't have a very distinctive smell for me. I will admit my nose was a little stuffed, but I still didn't get any special smell. It had a bit of a wheaty smell.
Taste was good but not great. It was wheaty and a little malty but not much else was going on. It did have a good beer flavor, but nothing too distinctive.
Mouthfeel was what made this beer. It had a very nice carbonation and a refreshing feel on the tongue. It was enjoyable to drink based on this.
Overall it was a pretty good beer, but it wasn't my favorite Bell's product.
