tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a hazy yellow with thin, fluffy, white head. Nose of wheat, banana, citrus, tropical fruit, grass, some coriander and clove. Medium body, light bitterness on the finish. Typical wheat beer flavors with some decent hop flavor coming through. I was avoiding this, anticipating and overly spiced winter beer but this is change of pace. Lightly hoppy wheat beer. I’d definitely drink it again.

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.

hotstuff (5257) - 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.

(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.

thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body hazy yellow white colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was spicy and floral. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish spicy aftertaste. The odd tasting flavor contained notes of spices. Not one that I would likely drink again.

3.6
NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2017
Gyllengul öl med ett småbubbligt vitt skum. Doft av citrus, lätt örtighet, jäst och vete. I smaken tillkommer hö och lättare toner av tropisk frukt.
