Poured from 5 litre mini keg to 22oz pisner glass.

Nice cloudy, hazy, golden nectar from the god's! Like a mixture of the sun and clouds on a perfect summer's day!

Taste is perfection for an American Wheat style! Profound in flavor truely one of a kind in this style. Wheat malt blended with low-alpha hops and perhaps a nice spicey saaz and orange rinds.

Exceptionally smooth and drinkable! This should be every wheat lover's summer staple beer!

Absolutely love that the release poster changes each year. The beer has a dark, orange look that seems thick. Perfect amount of citrus but a smooth tasting beer. Refreshing and perfect for the summer. One of my favorite beers of all times.

Not my favorite Bell's beer and like it less than Two-Hearted which I only ranked slightly above a 4 but I give this beer a 5 for what it is, a perfect summer wheat beer that tastes delicious with or without an orange peel. A bit of fruitiness and hopiness but not overwhelming. Perfect for summer and what beer was designed for.
