hauxe (962) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2017
From the bottle. Gold with a foamy white head. Aroma not far off from a Weizen, yeasty and banana sweet, but the banana overtones contain noticeably more spice. Taste is mildly bitter, full of clove, coriander, citrus, artificial cherry syrup. Body is medium with a noticeable alcoholic warmth. Overall okay but uninspired.

Cakes (493) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2017
On tap in Downingtown. A nice mouthfeel, light spicy. Like a lager with some spice. Nice lacing in the glass. I would prefer a darker look with some unusual spice in a "Winter" beer.

onceblind (10697) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Clear golden under a pillowy white head. Bright German wheaty aroma with a smack of clove and coriander. Crisp smooth flavor that’s wheaty and slightly earthy and coriander clovey herbal. Mellow and wheaty and nice.

Draft. Pours a heavy gold color with a finger-thick white cap of foam that settles to a film. Aroma is typical here: little clove, little banana, little malt, little spice. Medium body. Flavor is a good combination of wheat malt, spicy yeast and a little bit of warming. Finish is just a touch sour with the wheat lingering. Not bad, good for the holidays. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Aroma is light citrus and a hint of floral hops. Appearance is light yellow hazy frothy full white head. Taste is tangy citrus floral with maybe a hint of clove. Palate is medium and a bit of velvet on the tongue. Overall decent, but I have know idea why this was marketed as a Winter beer. Decent Wit/Saison.

2.9
hotstuff (5272) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2017
The appearance of this draft beer consists of a very small off-white head that is fully lasting, hazy pale yellow body, no carbonation observed throughout the rating, and excellent lacing. The aroma presents wheat, fruity, sweetness, and malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, wheat, fruity, sweet, malt, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is easy drinking, but it lacks a decent amount of flavor. This beer does not leave me partaking in it again as it is somewhat bland and a so-so beer for the style.

Svesse (8825) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2017
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 9 Dec 2016) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, wheaty nose with peaches, pears, bread and clove. Fruity, wheaty taste with notes of citrus, pears, apricots, bread, banana and clove. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.

3.5
ansalon (4147) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2017
Pours hazy orange with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of citrus, banana, lemongrass, wheat starch. Taste is very fruity and estery with mineral notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation.
