Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice creamy head. Nice mellow flavor w/out too much spices but just enough from the yeast. Med body. Soft and very yeasty. Nice.

Draft: Awesome yellow cloudy color to it , I thought this was exactly like a blue moon except it had a banana flavor to it, I really liked the taste of this as something to change up to once in a while.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw body and loose sudsy white head. Aroma is yeasty with lemon/orange citrus, light wheatiness, and mild phenols. Citrusy flavor with mild spice and a phenolic/aspartame quality finish, but not detracting because it fits the beer. Crisp and very refreshing. An interesting beer that blurs an already blurry line between two styles.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice cloudy gold with lots of carbonation. No head to speak of once it sits. Aroma is the expected, lemon dishsoap and some spicy clove. Also a nice full wheat bread aroma.The taste is bursting with lemon rinds and some spicy goodness of gingerbread. This is a solid wit. Another great beer from Bellís.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, very thin fizzy off white head. Nose of coriander, clove, orange peel, and light pear, with a slight hint of earthiness and white bread. Well balanced, soft spices, with a light bitterness closing it out. Light bodied, light carbonation, spiced drying wheat finish. This would be much better if I were drinking it on the deck in 90 degree sunshine. Still a good session brew that wheat beer fans will dig...

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured light cloudy orange-yellow-brown. Aroma slightly citrus and fruity. Palate smooth, aftertaste yummy. After trying several overflavored/overhopped Bells stouts in the past week, I was impressed by the subtlety of this fine white. Economical, and I would try this again.

Yellow cloudy color with thin white head. Yeasty citrus smell. Crisp sweet banana taste that is very light. Well balanced with dry slightly sour finish. Good for white!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a hazy light yellow-gold color, similar to that of straw, with a thin light white head. The type of yeast used for this brew leaves it with a distictive banana-clove aroma and taste with a slight hint of citrus. A bit thin on taste with a semi-dry finish. Somewhat of a rarity for this time of year but a decent effort by Bellís. Certainly not my favorite style to kick back with on a chilly december evening but very refreshing and enjoyable none the less.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2008 What a great beer! The best new one I have had in many months, this winter wheat is refreshing, crisp, spicey and just plain delicious. I love what beer but some get it to sickningly sweet or make it too heavy. This is the perfect mix of sweet and sour and has a fine body. First class and has a beautiful painting on the bottle as well.
