This beer occupies the category of American Pale Wheat Ale and perhaps defines it. It pours a little darker and more golden than many of the Belgian Witbieren but it pours cloudy with a nice creamy head. Yeasty bread and citrus aromas preface rich malt flavors – a little more than with some Witbieren but it works. It may also have a touch more hop than some Witbieren but they are nicely balanced by the malt and alcohol. If Bell’s have added any spices they have not added much. Here the spiciness comes from the yeast and the hops.
