Iím 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 Iíve had. Thatís not to say it isnít a true Wheat; loads of the above mentions flavors and aromas here in full force, but itís ultimately crisp and balanced; definitely worth a try for fans of the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is light, like a golden straw that you can't see through. It's got a decent pure white head. There is minimal lace and the aroma is pretty odd. There is a pretty dominant lemon and resultant fruit note, but at the same time there is a bready, yeasty tone like is found in Belgians. The flavor is much of the same. The mouth feel is really thin, and the flavors do not linger at all. They're in and out.

Not huge fan of wheat beers, this was better than most. I am a fan of Belgian beers, so that was nice compared to traditional wheat beer. Another good beer from Bells, you should try this if you like wheat beer.

Not a fan of this one. Has mildew-like qualities with very little else to redeem it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with a long lasting white head. Mild banana-clove aroma. More of the same in the flavor. Tastes like a mellow hefe with hints of sweet citrus and some graininess in the finish. Average carbonation with watery texture. A good change of pace from the heavier Winter offerings.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The initial aroma comes on strong citrus - lemon primarily - with some clove notes, and some faint hoppy/earthy notes. It appears hazy, straw yellow with a thin white head that fades quickly. It reduces down to a couple splotches floating atop the beer. Itís mostly sweet, some sour, very lemony with some orange notes maybe. Itís a light, fizzy body, it finishes with some nutmeg/hop spiciness - very clean finish. A spicy witbier, with more hefe qualities than belgian - built for session drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rcvd in trade; It has a hazy light golden yellow colored body with a soft white head that gets slightly lumpy; lacing is mostly sporadic and clings adequately to the glass; the smell has some cloves and wheat up front, nice Belgian yeasty and fruitiness backing that up fairly well; the taste takes the previously mentioned flavors and adds a bready sort of flavoring to heighten the flavoring; sweet sticky fruity aftertaste, somewhat of a dry clove-like finish; its fairly easy on the palate and somewhat sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me as thereís an adequate harshness for a good witbier but not overly done; overall, its not as spicy as some witbiers Iíve had, but hey, still pretty good for the style and for me, Iíd have this again
