A good witbier.better than some other camparable beers and one that I would drink again...but probably in the summer.

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.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
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!

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2004
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 Bell’s. 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.

Radek Kliber (6616) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 28, 2004
Refreshing minthy, yeasty nose, touch of banana. Medium light bodied. Good mouthfeel, interesting wheat if you look how it was composed.

Winter white, eh? Well, o.k., though the color alone would justify a name more like Rogue Yellow Snow. :-) Still, a decent hazy yellow with a bit of head. Wheaty, slightly fruity, and somewhat obscure aroma--not the prettiest feature. The flavor was nicer, in my opinion, bringing out much bolder orange and spice notes (clove), with a hint of bubblegum as it warmed. Decent palate--lively for a long time as it warmed. Perhaps there is something in the recipe that makes this "winter" that I don’t know about, but it would be a fine beer in any season.

jazz88 (2600) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Bottle. A slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Orange, clove, and dust aroma. Smooth, citrus and wheat flavors. Surprisingly good and refreshing.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Chunky, bready wheat beer, with many belgian characteristics. Much softer than expected, with limited grass and orange flavor. Spices are a little mild as well. Crisp finish.

hopscotch (10075) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Bottle. Hazy, straw-colored ale. Nose is orange peel, coriander, dough and apple. Well-balanced flavor is fruity and slightly tart... green banana. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Lengthy, lightly tart, semi-dry finish.
