Pours a hazy lemon yellow, softly pastel with a finger of white foam that fell fast. Nose is golden wheat with a bit of sweetness on it. Bright lemon zest rounds out the nose. Taste is a bit maltier than I expected. medium light rather than light. The mouthfeel is creamy and has plenty of carbonation to keep that in check. The wheat is crisp and dry. The middle of the beer is juicy with sweet lemon peel and tart lemon too. There is a bit of a sour taste lurking in the shadows that never really steps out but it gives the drink a slight pucker. The middle of the beer is juicy with fruit. Refreshing and crisp with a drying finish.

Great beer, not as strong as I remember but I still enjoy it. It came out on march 23 and I just bought it for the first and definitely not the the last time of the season. I believe this is the best beer Bell's makes. In my opinion the mini keg does taste a little better than the bottle.

Had this on tap at Orangeburg NY Holiday Inn ( Chris is bringing in some nice beers ). This beer has nice balance with both malt and hops coming through. Very drinkable , a really good summer beer. Herby, biscuity hops and good carbonation.
Wheats are not my first choice but I would definitely get this again.
