Well not sure what qualifies this as a "winter" ale, rather comes across as a standard Belgian-esque witbier, pours a thoroughly hazy straw orange color, white foamy head and respectable fresh lacing. Aroma of clove and other yeasty notes, flavor follows as lemon-zest and clove yeast and a bit of light malt, maybe a hint of warm spices but you would have to really look for it. Relatively mild flavor intensity, smooth medium palate. Overall underwhelming for Bell’s, not bad but not too exceptional. freekyp (2235) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2017
Can version through Fizzics. A straight ahead Belgian wit with all the expected components. Pours cloudy light orange with a thick frothy white cap that slides down the sides if the glass in thick meringue dollops. Light tart and lemony with lots of coriander and clove notes. Smooth pillowy body. Aroma is very musty with apparent orange rind and yeasty phenols. ehaak26 (522) - - JAN 12, 2017
Pint night at Pazzo’s. I love Bell’s but I’m definitely not a wit fan. Aroma was yeast and straw. uckelman (799) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Pours hazy yellow. White head. Aroma is banana, cloves. Medium-heavy body. Pretty foamy in the mouth. Not bad, but I’m not feeling it as a _winter_ beer. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 31, 2016
12oz bottle. Clear golden with white head. Peppery clove, light fruit, earthy sulfer aromas. Medium bodied. Nice fruity, peppery, phenol flavors with wheat bread, herbs___tasty.

Pretty decent white ale. A lot of banana and clove. The spices aren’t too overwhelming, just surprised this was the winter seasonal. Would be great in the summer too. Tried with the parents in 2016. oobawa (1403) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2016
First mostly undrinkable beer I’ve tasted from Bell’s, but man is this thing wretched. Flat and head-free despite its spicy Belgian carbonation, Winter White starts bittersweet but quickly heads in the wrong direction, stacking your average bananaclove hefe notes on top of a unpleasant cloy corn sweetness. Finishes spiky and saccharine where it should be smooth and dry. Rough goings, to say the least. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Also on draft at Enzo’s with lunch. Lighter than I had expected. Nice coriander and spice tone. slight hazy yellow with a coriander and clove nose. Enjoyable... daigoon (199) - - DEC 21, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Hazy yellow with lasting white head, some sediments. Mostly yeasty taste. Cimbasso (892) - - DEC 19, 2016
Sampled on draught at Miller’s Pub in Chicago. Cloudy yellow/amber with a cream head. Quite fruity with tastes of banana, bubblegum, cloves and sour lemon. The texture is a little creamy and heavy for this style of beer. OK, but not great.
