Review taken early November 2013.
12 oz brown bottle with a orange Bell's style label. Strains of wheat gracing the beautiful artwork. I really enjoyed the art here. Appropriate for the season we are in at the moment. Poured into a Stemmed Tulip glass.
A - golden-yellow with lots of haze. Maybe a bright orange factor going on from the Haziness. Bright white head is creamy with loads of frothiness. Nice lacing with lots of stick.
S - smells like a big Hefeweizen. Clove and spices with slight banana and bubblegum whiffs. Wheat, grain, and bread like notes layout the backdrop. Hefe like up front with A real complex yeast character to follow. Real funk like. Think German Hefe/Abbey Saison/Witbier.
T - a nice sweetness of fruit paired with the funk of the large blend of yeast. Big juicy orange with the slightest hint of banana continue out into the middle. Bready malt and wheat lay claim to an almost dry finish.
M - medium bodied yet still displays a nice texture. It's creamy and easy to drink. Much like all Bell's brews. I poured 2 of these back to back and barely noticed the 8% at all. But it is there make no mistake :)
O - wheat love is a very nice brew. It has a lot going on and it surprised me at how good it really is. A real complex beer in terms of the way it was made with a load of different yeast strains. This is a fine Wheatwine and I just bought a few more as I was surprised to see it sitting in the store this long. Bells yet again did a very class job at crafting this unique wheat beer gem. If you enjoy wheat beer I insist on grabbing at least one of these. It's more than worth the try!

12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 9/13/2013. Pours very hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big banana, apricot, pear, orange, apple, clove, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, apricot, pear, apple, orange, clove, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, apricot, pear, orange, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice beer. More of a weizenbock in flavor; but has all around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; and is very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
