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.
