MrBeerFanatic (841) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a hazy light dingy yellow with a frothy/carbonated head. Aromas of juicy fruit, coriander seed and a light yeastiness. Flavors coriander, spice, yeast, slight hint of banana ester and juicy fruit. Lightly sweet. Mostly comes off as a Belgian wit.

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.

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 12, 2014
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.

Widely available in Michigan. 12 oz bottle, served chilled from outside. Blonde appearance, minimal head. Clean taste, lingers briefly on a palate. Very drinkable.

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.

bkurtz (728) - PERU - JAN 5, 2014
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.
