Bell’s EXP HOP 2012-4 is a taproom-only release that’s primarily a Hefeweizen kicked up a notch. A hint of lemon makes the brew taste more tropical as opposed to just banana, and clove and other spices offset the sweetness a bit. This is a great, well-balanced brew that caps off Bell’s experimental hop series.
