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.

Mini-keg into a 25cl Duvel tulip, enjoyed as a palate cleanser (of sorts) at Knifestyle's birthday tasting. Thanks, Chris!

A: Hazy pale gold body with a thin, fine white head that settles into a ring and leaves spotty lace. Nice.

S: Delicate, pure wheat graininess. A little spicy a little citrus. Really soft and nice.

T: A bit fuller than the nose, with solid malt sweetness, mildly tart wheat, and a crisp, clean, mildly bitter finish. Tasty.

M: Light, lively, creamy. Perfect.

O: Very good APWA. Refreshing, tasty, and simple.

Cheers!

Had at US Cellular Field

A - Pour is golden\orange with a haze. Nice lacing and a quickly shrinking foam.

S - Good smell of citrus and hops. Has a scent of fresh fruit and some floral notes too.

T - Very enjoyable ale that has a base of fresh grain. Flavors or lemon are tasted, and some tropical fruit. Finish is a mild hoppy bite.

M - Very sessionable, and feels so smooth. Perfect to sit back and enjoy a summer night. Minimal carbonation. Very flavorful wheat ale.

O - First taste of something from Bell's. Now I want more.
