Pours a pale cloudy yellow with thin bubbly head. Nice banana, clove, and coriander aroma. The taste hits you with a strong wheat and lemon zest up front, followed by some spice, then finished with grain and dough. Very light, crisp, and refreshing with a decent amount of carbonation. Not quite sure what makes this a "winter" white ale and i was expecting something a bit heavier and spicier. I could easily drink this year round.

BeerCoff4025 (27) - Iowa, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Hazy golden color with small off white head. Lots of good flavor to this beer. Wheat, barley tones are strong with hints of orange, cream, and even some bubblegum. Very drinkable beer, tastes even better when pairing it with some football on a cold winter day :)

Appearance is a cloudy, light golden with a moderate white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is orange, coriander, and a distinct Belgian fruity yeast ester. Taste is a light bready malt with coriander spice, orange peel, pears, and a sharp hop bitterness on the end. Mouthfeel is light with a slight creaminess, and moderate carbonation. Finishes tart and bitter with a lingering pear and orange peel flavor. Great witbier.

Cloudy straw appearance. Easy to drink with little carbonation. Hints of coriander in the taste. Nice cold weather alternative to all the heavy dark beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2 Nov. 2011 bottling, served in a pint glass. (from notes) Golden-yellow color with thin, and short-lived, white head. Cloudy. Looks like a typical wheat beer rather a typical "winter ale", but then this is a "Winter White" and is a witbier. Aroma -- Wheaty and yeasty with hints of citrus and apricots. Taste -- Largely follows aroma: Wheaty and yeasty with hints of citrus, bananas, nutmeg, cloves and apricots. Lightly tart. O -- a fine example of the style, with only a slight departure from normal witbier prep. -- without the packaging, I would not have noticed this one is "seasonally nuanced". A winter ale for the tropics, perhaps.
