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.

Big lemon, bananna, clove, yeast nose w. hints of grape, alcohol. Flavor is somewhat cheesy, earthy lemon, yeast, clove, corriander. Something odd and sagelike. A bit much on that cheesiness thing

Metalhead (628) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Looks and smells better than it tasted. Was hoping for Hoegarrden with x-mas spices. What I found was a Hoegarrden wanna be that was dryish and not as refreshing. Itís the dryness that killed it for me

A crisp, sharp tasting white. Very traditional taste associated with the Bellís brewery. Slight citrus finish with a bite.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours an "electric" golden yellow, small white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, hops. Flavor is lemony, with malt, and wheat present. Bananas and lemon in the backround. A nice witbier!

I never really considered Hoegarden a " Winter" beer but I guess with the right spices you could. I found the Bellís version to be lacking in any fall spices( nutmeg, clove, mace, allspice, cinnamon, and even orange peel). For me not worth the price of a 6-pack($8.00), in this area, or bette than Hoegarden.
