Pours a nice light and slightly clouded gold. The head is big and pillowy, with great retention. It has a nice light wheat aroma with fruity esters and some spices, as well. The taste is not bad but a little weak. Muffled, if that makes sense, with all the notes there but lacking depth. There is a nice weight and plenty of carbonation. Not sure what makes this a winter wheat beer.

Pours a cloudy deep straw color. The aroma is full of wheat and spice. The taste has dry wheat elements with tons of herbal elements . Hoppy, spicy, with a semi dry hop bite. Spicy and grainy. Full bodied well carbonated. Overall, a bit harsh but interesting winter hoppy hefeweizen.

Light cloudy straw color. Big healthy head. Funky nose and flavor. Typical wit.

I was expecting so much more from this brew.
I love Victory products, generally.
This winter wheat beer is - well...wierd!
The color is really light, the flavor is a wine-cooler-ish.
I was looking for a break from the stouts and the porters - but this was a disappointment.
