A-Clear orange, not much carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last long

S-Overpowering metallic notes. Orange, lemon, wheat and poor balance.

T-Much better than the nose. The metallic notes aren't there. Orange, lemon and wheat balance it out. Some clove and even a tad bit of grass.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation.

O-The nose was wayy off. The taste was much better but there isn't much reason to drink this brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Type: on-tap pint
Glass: pint glass
From: Casey's Tavern in Ann Arbor
Price: $4.50

Appearance: a deep and hazy gold. opaque. by time i got it there was no head left and the lacing was gone as well

Smell: a little bit of wheat, fruit and clove.

Taste: follows the nose pretty well. definitely a wheat taste to it, along with what i now taste as banana and a good mixture of cloves.

Mouthfeel: light and crisp. a good mix-up from all the stouts, barleywines and bourbon beers i have been having this winter

Overall: another solid seasonal from Bell's. not a beer that i am gonna race to get next winter, but it sure hits the spot after a bit of a burn out on heavier and darker drinks. easy to find as most MI bars have a Bell's seasonal option

Serving type: on-tap

Poured this Witbier from a bottle into a pint glass. Poured a light golden color, produced a white head, retention was below average. The aroma consisted of light malted grain, banana, clove and lemon citrus. Light in body, a base of malted wheat, with yeast flavors of banana, citric lemon, and spicy clove. Overall decent beer, nice session beer.
