Cloudy and hazy bright yellow-orange color, spicy, earthy citrus aromas, nice white frothy head that lasts and leaves some lacing in my glass.. Fresh tart citrus and mild spice flavors, crisp carbonated mouthfeel, finishes a bit sour, a very refreshing and drinkable brew.

Hazy gold under a tall white head with a lot of lacing. Aroma of flowers, bananas, malt & yeast. Fruity wheat flavors similar to some Berliner Weise beers but on a toned-down level. No discernable "winter" spices such as nutmeg so Iím not sure what makes this a winter seasonal aside from the fact it may only be offered in the winter. Finish was fairly clean and refreshing. A nice wheat beer and definately tasty but nothing really stands out as particularly special.

Reminds me of Sam Adams winter ale, but better. Would recommend if your a fan of white ale spice beers try this one out.

Okay but certainly not in the style of a Belgian white. A pleasant maltiness shows through in the aroma and itís quite smooth. A well-crafted beer but in the end the taste is too wheaty for my subjective fancy.

Nothing overly spectacular, but it was good. I think it tasted more like a common wheat beer than a Belgian White. Very cloudy coming out of the tap. Flavorful with what my wife terms the typical wheat "wanginess." I lked it, but nothing to go crazy about. To me, it was a summer lawnmower beer, not much heartiness for the winter.

ElGaucho (2275) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Belgian wit aroma. Imagine that. Hazy pale gold. Small, white head. Very good. Better than I thought it would be based upon other ratings. A good effort on this style from an American brewer.

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Draft. Great golden cloudy (10/10 on opaqueness scale) appearance, great head. Soft aroma. Seems like a light Belgian. Yeasty. Crisp palate. Light, fluffy, like a good skiing snowfall. Slightly above average.

Thanks to Indra for this! This pours with the expected frothy white head, hazy lemon-yellow body and aroma of citrusy lemon and orange. Well balanced with a good finish of tangy citrus and spice. Quite enjoyable.
