Slightly cloudy yellow color with a thin, white head that leaves a little lacing on the top. Smell is banana, clove, yeast. Taste is banana, cloves, tart wheat, lemongrass, cloves, and a hint of vanilla. Effervescent, light on the palette, easy to drink, has a slight tart aftertaste. Pretty solid stuff and certainly a nice change of pace compared to all the heavy winter ales out there.

Medium golden and quite hazy from tap with a thin white head. Normal whit scent of not much, some Belgian yeasts. Like the flavor, it’s got that banana thing going but with some pepper and some bitterness to boot. Good zippy feel from this brew. Pretty good here.

L: very hazy golden blonde ale in appearance. Looks extremely appetizing! Light head, thin ring persists minutes after pour.

S: Smells like a good Belgian white but with a bit more banana and vanilla. Very nice aroma!

T: great tasting winter beer! Bells rarely disappoints and this beer is no exception! The vanilla really coming through now. Very Smooth and Very light!

F: Medium mouthfeel, but quite light in the finish but very fulfilling!

O: A fantastic winter beer and a great alternative to your typical darks this season. Recommend!

Poured into a clear glass. Has a beautiful hazy, bright golden blond presentation and moderate carbonation. Head gradually dissipates.

Smells like a hefe weissen. Notes of Belgian yeast, banana, orange peel, lemon peel, cloves, and other floral and fruity smells.

Tastes mainly of banana, Belgian yeast, and lemongrass. Other notes of grapefruit, a lingering clove-tasting body, and overall dry and slightly bitter. Feels somewhat heavy, but smooth.

Pretty good for a winter-style beer. Reminds me of a cold snowy day.
