Appearance - clear tangerine color liquid with white head, some sediment is suspended in this one

Smell - orange peel, wheat

Taste - wheat, orange peel, tangerine

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, a bit of sourness on the finish

Overall -
Not sure if this was a bad bottle or what, but this was a letdown. I'd be willing to give it another shot down the road

Price point - $1.89/12 oz single

Opened the bottle and decided to sip from there. Nice mouthfeel, good initial taste, smooth with a little after bitter but not unpleasant. I can see why this is a good middle of the afternoon sit on the terrace and talk beer. I could drink this from the bottle or the glass and be happy. Nicely done Bell's. Cheers.
