pours a cloudy gold with slight carbonation. Silky 1/2" Head reduces to lacing. Nose of spice and light malt. Taste is well balanced battle between spice, wheat, and yeast.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- White pepper, cloves, wheat, light fruity esters.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Wheat, clove, coriander, spices, subtle banana, subtle bubblegum.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- I can always appreciate witbiers since they are what got me into craft. That said, this is one of the better ones I have had recently but my palate has just changed too much. Donít get a ton of fruity esters, especially banana, but there is quite a bit of spice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from a visit to NewYork. Pours a pale yellow, ever so slightly hazed, with a 1/4" white head. No lace. Belgian yeast, clove, wheat and subtle banana on the nose. Flavor sports a bit of Belgian funk with some light spice, mostly clove and coriander. Medium bodied and bubbly in the mouth. Nice!

Aroma is clove, wheat, floral, no real coriander or citrus. Appearance is darker golden, white head, hazy. Taste is clove, bubblegum, wheat, unpleasant. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, clove wheat aftertaste. Overall, meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 Bellís, not bad but not too exceptional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pint night at Pazzoís. I love Bellís but Iím definitely not a wit fan. Aroma was yeast and straw.

Pours hazy yellow. White head. Aroma is banana, cloves. Medium-heavy body. Pretty foamy in the mouth. Not bad, but Iím not feeling it as a _winter_ beer.

Pretty decent white ale. A lot of banana and clove. The spices arenít too overwhelming, just surprised this was the winter seasonal. Would be great in the summer too. Tried with the parents in 2016.
