Slight deviation from the standard weizen. Cleaner, yet not as refreshing. A bit dull

Ale is not my favorite brew, but if I were to drink Ale, I would occasionally drink Ale’s Winter White Ale.

Cloves & phenolics. That’s all there is to this rotten ass beer. Aromas of band-aids, tastes are of cloves. Nasty, just plain nasty. Go back to the drawing board, Bells.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled; Tastes great, perfect for a winter evening around the fire. I guess that’s why they call it a winter ale. It has a bit of an unexpected bite, a tad tart.

Aroma of burned wood at first. Was little rough on the palate at first. About half way though the beer a citrus flavor appeared and seemed to smooth the palate. Cloudy gold color to the body with no head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy golden with a very thin white head. Nose is honey, apricot, hint of citrus fruit. On the tongue I get grapefruit and apricot, clover honey, nutmeg, very sweet, with an interesting slightly bitter yeasty bite at the end that is mixed with alcohol. Rather thin, not much aftertaste for a white. Still, this is a good example of the breed.

Poured a cloudy lemon yellow with a smallish head and decent lacing.
Fresh citrus aroma with a tart citrus flavor that layed long on the palate.
Very good! I’m not a fan of wheat beers but this was a good one!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow, cloudy color. Lacking a strong aroma, which leads up to an ordinary tasting wheat beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pale yellow, slightly hazy. Coriander aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel and a pleasant soft malt character. Some grassy hops tops it off. A likeable wheat beer.
