As Witbiers go, this didn’t stink. Cloudy pale yellow with a wisp of head. Wheat, orange zest, coriander, and yeast meet the nose. Thin and watery. The flavor was grassy, wheaty, and spicy.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2005 From Bottle

Looked hazy in the bottle and poured hazy, it did have a nice white head that lasted throughout. Aroma was very sweet. Flavor was your typical wheat beer, I really wanted to put a slice of orange in it, for some reason. It gave me a nice mouthfeel, no bitterness at all, of course. the Flavor really hit the back of my tounge. But, overall it’s still your average wheat beer, nothing special

Bottle poured a nice head with average lacing. Had a strong spicy sweet aroma. Sweet clean taste with accents of allspice.

Bottle. Pours a hazy white with plenty of clouding. The aroma is malty and spicy. The flavor seems to be dominated by the Belgian yeasts with the Hefe as a minor afterthought. Not their best beer, but then again, Bell’s worst beer is better than most brewers best.

The aroma had a spicy smell to it. The head was small and diminishing. The flavor had a unique aftertaste that I did not really enjoy. I would much prefer a Blue Moon.

Bottled, thanks to Engelsmann for sharing. Hazy yellow coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of malts and spices. Flavour of fruits and spices with notes of citrus.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Lemon yellow body with big, white, fading head. Aroma is cloves, coriander, banana and oranges. The flavor is light and refreshing, banana, oranges and spices. Slightly sour and lively carbonation dance on the tongue.

Very Golden, little to no head, very subtle and not too bitter. Good taste and a good sipping beer.

Eh, not one of Bells more impressive brews. I would say that is isn’t vastly superior to Blue Moon and Hooegarden (spelling?) is much better. That’s okay, it is still a Bell’s and bottle conditioned which I enjoy.

Pours a wintry fog with muted sunshine. Nose is wheat, bread-character, and some sweet banana/fruit hints. Mouthfeel is slightly cloying and the flavor is a little thick. Yeast dominates, followed by wheat and a peppery mix of winter spice. Far from a simple, monotone brew, this is challenging (almost pungent with the yeast) and rich. A good installment in the Belgian white lline with a nice transatlantic mix of ingredients.
