from notes during my inet down time 2012.

12 oz brown bottle with a great looking orange label that gives me some pleasure of warm summer evenings. Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Hazy golden with some light orangish hue. Haze provides some real funk going on in the shape of a midwest tornado in the center of my glass. Very light to no head once it settles being snow white in color.

S - Wheat grain aroma with a sweet malt character. A bit of spice and light hop presence in the nose.

T - Very summer like. Fruity and sweet of lemon, grass, and wheat malt. Some good spice going on here with a simple and light hoppy bitterness with the finish. Very refreshing brew.

M - Smooth and fairly light in body. Has a thickness to the mouthfeel or makes you think it with all the cloudiness in the look of this ale. Easy to drink and one of the better summer wheat ales you can drink.

O - I've always been a big fan of Bell's Brewery, and I need to do more reviews on their offerings as they really are top notch. This is one of the best American Pale Wheat ales in the world. It's more less a style that's kind of half assed if you ask me, but there are a few brewers who have taken the time to do it right and offer a solid warm weather seasonal and Bell's is one of those brewers who took time with the Oberon Ale.

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.
