Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery - Eccentric Café & General Store
Michigan, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
An alternative to dark and heavy winter warmers and stouts, Winter White is a stylish and refreshing Wheat Ale.

Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley and wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Winter White is a beer for embracing winter.

12 oz.

Pours a light lemony yellow gold, slightly hazy, with a white lacing.

Smells of lemon, candi sugar and coriander.

Tastes like sweet lemon and coriander with light grassy malts.

Medium body with light tingles of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A nice, light witbier, good flavor, easy to drink, and sessionable. Good, would have again.

Had this at the Green Dot Stables in Detroit the other day, was served to me in a pint.

A: Is a cloudy, pale yellow color, had almost no head and very little lacing, few white streaks on the glass.

S: Smells quite sweet, though a very light aroma. Still, smells quite sweet, honey, wheat, grains, bread, yeast as well.

T: Very smooth, good flavor, sweet honey, wheat, grains, malts, yeast, with a hit of spices at the finish, along with a bit of hops

M: Medium carbonation, very crisp, very light, a deviation from the darker and higher ABV holiday beers that are floating around.

O: It was a good beer, very light, refreshing and sweet, good carbonation, very decent, could drink large quantities of this without getting bored.

A - Pours a murky orange with a one finger white frothy head that half dissipates. Left no lacing.

S - Lemon peel, Orange peel, Wheat.

T - Basically the same as the smell. Lemon peel up front, Stale orange in the middle and a very wheaty finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, It's alright. Definitely not even in the top ten for Bell's though.
