Love it. The spice really makes it feel wintery, where some beers like this still feel like they're from summer.

Have had on tap and from bottle multiple times. Had a weird batch of overly-hopped ones last year, but this year is back to normal. Cloudy orange-gold. Creamy mouthfeel of Belgian yeast and mild citrus notes. Always a good one to have--and a great beer to get someone into craft.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into chalice. Minneapolis.
Appearance: Very cloudy, yellow/orange in color, massive white head with incredible retention. Lots of lacing. A very pretty beer.
Aroma: Very yeasty, some fruity notes, citrus.
Taste: Pretty dry with a small amount of sweetness. Slightly bitter finish.
Palate: Thin body, frothy texture, strong carbonation. Short finish.
Overall: This is a drinkable beer, but it it doesn’t have enough meatiness to really be great. The appearance is very inviting. The aroma brings it down a notch, and then the taste and texture only bring it down further. The biggest miss for me is the body, which is way to thin.

I’m normally not a fan of traditional wheat beers (just not a big fan of the banana and clover flavors), but Bells Winter White is as good and balanced a take on the style as I’ve had. That’s not to say it isn’t a true Wheat; loads of the above mentions flavors and aromas here in full force, but it’s ultimately crisp and balanced; definitely worth a try for fans of the style.

Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small, typical wheat beer head. Aroma of spice, but fairly weak. The taste is a little muddled. Is it a Belgian wit bier? Bells makes some great beers, but this is an average one.
