12 oz bottle. The pour is light, like a golden straw that you can't see through. It's got a decent pure white head. There is minimal lace and the aroma is pretty odd. There is a pretty dominant lemon and resultant fruit note, but at the same time there is a bready, yeasty tone like is found in Belgians. The flavor is much of the same. The mouth feel is really thin, and the flavors do not linger at all. They're in and out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a thick, frothy and long-lasting head. Immediate taste hints of banana, wheat, slightly sour. Thin, slightly carbonated, and slick to the palate. Definitely grew on me the more I dug into the glass.

Bellís Winter White Ale has a thick, creamy, off-white head, an opaque, orange-gold appearance, and the beer gets a descending gray-yellow cloud, following the "swish & pour". Aroma is of spice, white wheat bread, coriander, clove, a touch of citrus, and, perhaps, banana peel. Taste is of all that, with some touch of black pepper and lots of sugar. Mouthfeel is lower medium, and Bellís Winter White Ale finishes medium dry. RJT

mambossa (310) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Pours a hazy sunny straw, fairly fine sediment. Nose of bready citrus peel with some clove riding along. Flavor is quite modest, bready, fair presence of clove, flowers, mellow orange skin, lively carbonation in the beginning, delicate yet hollow apple/pear notes. A balanced Belgian wheat Ale, but nothing too wild, as it should be. Yeast is detectable yet not overbearing.

Bottle in fl. Decent wheat. Some spices give a slightly different twist bit surely not mind blowing

jsporrer (806) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Mildly carbonated with light lacing. Nice aroma of wheat and bready yeast. Fairly smooth with a taste of wheat and some light spices and a hint of clove. Pretty refreshing and enjoyable.

Crystal clear bright yellow though mine was from last year and the bottom was clouded...still had good flavor to that point and as I said delightfully yellow. Nice aroma and clean taste. Iíll have to get in on the new batch this year.

If Bellís Winter White Ale shows us anything itís that we need more wintertime wheat beers. Cloudy yellow pour with a rich, long-lasting, tightly-packed head. Earthy yeast and spices in the aroma - very sexy. Lots of spiciness to the taste. Black and white pepper, clove, and coriander. Lemon and orange zest. Bread and banana sweetness. Itís definitely not a one-dimensional Wit, and itís got a creamy, lively body. Itís about time someone brewed a winter wheat ale that isnít weighed down with weird holiday spices.

joeneugs (6060) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. It pours a clear golden color with a small, white disappearing head. The aroma has some salt and pepper with subtle coriander and hints of lemon. Lightly toasted malt. The flavor is the same. Toasted malt backbone with subtle coriander, pepper, light orange and lemon citrus. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium high. The malt and yeast character are very well balanced and complement each other well. Very good.
