12 oz bottle - pours a hazy yellow with foamy white head. Aromas of yeast, banana and citrus . Banana , spice and orange peel flavors all come through . Finishes mildly sweet . Not quite a Hefe, not quite a Belgian Wit but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabah (217) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Hazy yellowish appearance. I’d say more like a summer/spring brew but has some winter spices to it. Some citrus flavors, banana maybe, wheaty-belgian yeast, etc. Aroma a little skunky-sour....citrus balances it out some. Slight hoppy finish. On clearane for about $4 or $5 a 6-pack, so figured I’d give it another try.

trapped (1428) - New York, TURKEY - APR 13, 2015
Can. Pours hazy pale yellow with large spongy white head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sour lemon taste, abrupt finish. Easy to drink but not that impressive.

willisread (928) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 8, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Mostly clear golden pour with a nice white head. Banana, cloves, cinnamon and yeast on the nose. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Clean crisp finish with a hint of pepper.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is softly sweet and spicy. A touch of orange peel and some spicy wheat character. Not sure what’s wintery about it. It seems to have a bit of banana as well as some nice yeasty spiciness. It’s definitely a tasty beer - but puts me in more of a summery mood.

Big fan of Bell's, but I might just have a bad batch. Label on bottle shows less than 90 days old. Beer poured out very flat. Barely carbonated. Zero head. Zero lacing. Slightly skunky aroma. Taste wasn't as bad as the other indicators were preparing me for. Almost no hop flavor, I'd give an IBU of under 20. For a 5.0 alcohol beer, a Schlitz would be a step up from this. I can't see Bell's letting this leave the brewery, but at $9 a sixer, I'll keep walking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Cloudy, yellow-lime like appearance. No head. Mild, but pleasant banana, malted wheat, yeast, and bubblegum aroma. Absolutely delectable flavour. Mid bodied, silky, and quite creamy. Extremely smooth combination of banana, bubblegum, yeast, wheat and a quaint finishing hop. Very smooth and enjoyable white.

Huhzubendah (3063) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Can. Light golden and nearly clear body - suprising for a wit. Half inch of soapy white head. Aromas of wheat, apples, oranges, grass, cracked pepper. Moderate spice / pepper character with tangy oranges. Light to medium in body with a subtle fruity sweetness. Mild coriander in the nose and flavor. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

N3lson1 (533) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s. Sweet aroma, with a nice smooth sweet inital taste and the slightest bite at the end, good complexity. A good beer but I wouldn’t want to drink a six pack of these.
