Hoppy, piney aroma. Taste goes the same. Just a little more smooth, and creamier than your average belgian white. Just more wheat than I like.

From the bottle it poured a cloady straw color with a white head that did not have good retention. There was a dominate lemon flavor with some spice and a noticable amount of hops. Not my favorite, but I have had worse.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Properly cloudy copper, nice cap of white head that fades fairly quickly. Green grapeskin aroma. Kind of tart but fairly clean quality that is reminscent of lemon and corriander. Subsequent aromas reveal grainy malt and earthy, dill hop character. Sourdough bread flavor, mild but noticable hop bitterness. Fine, gentle carbonation. A bit thicker than I expect for the style, and for the low ABV. Not exactly the sparkly bright stuff I expect from a witbier. Maybe that is on purpose--part of the reason for calling it a Winter White? Or maybe itís just The Power of Suggestion...

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2005
12 oz bottle batch #6727- Pours golden with a short white head that fades pretty quick. Aroma is of wheat, yeast, bannana and a little clove. Flavor is mostkly bannana and clove. Somewhat spicey finish. Palate is light and airy as Iíd expect a belgian wit to be. Pretty tasty and an interesting beer to release in the winter. Seems this would be better released in the summer months.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle from kramer17801. Pours on the copperish side of white. Low carbonation. Yeast and corriander in the nose. Light, yeasty flavors with notes of banana, clove and possibly even a bit of pineapple. Tastes thin. Slightly dry, spicy finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with little head. Smells of citrus and yeast. Tastes of wheat with strong citrus undertones. Excellent job of making a usually summer style appropriate for winter.

kramer (6306) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden straw color with minimal head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast, banana. Spicy notes as well. Nice crisp wheat flavor, with a background of soft hops, finish is fruity and yeasty. Hints of yeast, coriander, and cloves. Great drinkable beer, and a nice change-up from the usual heavy hitting malt monsters of winter. Medium bodied with good soft carbonation. I could certainly drink this all evening and not get tired of it.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Apple juice colour with a diminishing head, Sweet fruity, pineapple, bananna, and well rounded with the characteristic coriander bite of a good witbier. Very wheaty, grassy, more like a summer brew than a winter one. A good hoppy spicy kick towards the end.

soulrefugee (46) - Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Well it is a great tasting beer, but one essential element I usually find plenty of in these winter brews is not in quite as abundant quantity as Iíd lke to see in this beer. You guessed it, alcohol. Itís only 4.5%, and usually these have more like 6-9 percent, which admittedly sometimes ruins the flavor. But it tastes so good, I can just drink more to compensate.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2005
This is good. Phenolic yeast aroma, citrusy as well. Nice wit character, with slight banana/clove taste as well. Refreshing,delicious. One of Bellís best pale beers, better than Oberon easily.
