Winter White pours a golden color with a nice head. There is a spicey aroma, with strong wheat notes, and strong orange peel notes. The flavor is a nice wheat and malty backbone, with good spices, and nice orange flavors. Nice full body. Overall its a nice wheat beer for the winter.

Pours a clean gold with an excellent long lasting 3 finger head. Aromas of banana and bubble gum followed by malt are present on the nose of the beer. Malt and lemon rind on the palate with a watery finish. Small bubbles and and a light body with a medium finish. An ok beer

Pours a cloudy light gold with mild white head. Belgian yeast smell is characteristic, with pale malts contributing to the mellow and light flavor (barley and wheat). Malt taste, with very slight notes of citrus/coriander. Medium body, crisp carbonation. A nice light and drinkable winter beer, especially if you aren't big on spice.
