Spicey, wheaty, citrusy aroma. Hazy yellow color with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Wheaty citrusy taste. I dunno, never really got in to this one. A weak offering.

Bottle Pours a cloudy pale dingy yellow/tan. Very slight white head that can only maintain spotty lacing. Aromas are some of the spicy fruity Belgian notes along with yeast and a little light citurs. Flavors are plenty of the above spiciness and yeast, somwehat bitter with quite lively carbonation. Feel is a bit thin and the aftertaste is quick and mildly woody. Thanks to MrFacto

Poured a cloudy, yellow, orange color with a small white head and left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, light spices, some yeast, and barnyard as well. Taste did not live up to the aroma, as I found the citrus and spices were much more muddled than was evident in the aroma. Mouthfeel was average, this is really just an average beer, nothing to "wow" you.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured yellow with a small head. Aromas of lemon, spice, and slightly musty/barn yard. Flavor continues with some lemon slightly sour and tangy, some spice. Light bodied and dry. Not knowing what tstyle this was when I drank it I was a little suprised but not bad as I drank it.

Itís always a good day when there is a new Bellís beer on the shelf. This brew is a mostly clear dark yellow color with a compact white head and very little lacing. The aroma is spicy, with wheat and citrus. Light and crisp body with a flavor that stings the tongue a bit. It is a zesty brew but not too flavorful unfortunately. Orange and other fruits, along with spice and a touch of malt on the back end. The finish is very dry and comes back to the citrus. All in all this is a decent Wit but not up to par with what I have come to expect from Bellís.

Quite good. If you like Bellís Oberon, then you will like this as well. More blonde than Oberon. Not overly fruity, but still a nice sweet taste with a bit of bitter taste at the end. Not the ultimate Witbier, but pretty good.

Fizzy white head with no retention. Pretty dark yellow for a Wit. Snappy and crisp. Not quite enough citrus for me, but I liked the tart flavors. Dry finish with notes of the sour/ tart wheat echoing. Clean, but Iíve had better.

An average white, this lacks any real bite or spice like the great ones. Nice to see new offerings from Bells, but Iím just not a huge fan of this one.

I was pretty bored with this style, and then this gem came along. Initial pour was golden and sparkling, but after stirring and adding the yeast shot, this looked like a glass of gold milk. Beyond hazy. Looks a little like orange juice, actually. Aroma is typical of the style, all the fruit and spices in the right places. Flavor is pretty big for the style. Bananas, clove, coriander, orange zest, slight bitterness, and decent wheat malts, with a slightly dry and acidic aftertaste. A good showing that totally redeems a style that I was bored with.
