Presentation: 16 oz. can, served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow color with a white, two finger head. Leaves some good lacing.

Smell: It has a strong aroma of grains and a hint of lemon peel.

Taste: It has a grainy, citrus taste. Nothing spectacular.

Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing and easy easy to drink, your typical summer beer. Average carbonation.

Overall: Nothing to write home about. It doesn't stand out in any way, but I guess that's fine for some beers. It's still nice and refreshing like all the other craft offerings that flood
the market during the summer months.

A delicious wheaty-easy-to-drink beer. I know people go crazy when this hits shelves again each summer, and I only had it a couple of times a couple of years ago, but I remember it being the quintessential summer beer: light in body, light in color, and kind of sweet.

Pours a cloudy, brilliant sun orange with a off-color single finger head of foam.

Heavy on the citrus, orange and lemon accompanied by a crisp snap of wheat.

Tropical and citrus fruits, with a wheat backbone.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing.

Overall, not the greatest offering from Bell's but a nice, humble brew.
