All around well crafted ale.

I had the Bell's Winter White at a local bar on tap via a pitcher (not my choice). It pours nice and orangish with a some cloudiness to it.

Taste was quite good. I liked it off the bat and after a couple more tastes, grew to like it more. I have since purchased it in bottle and enjoyed it at home as well.

On tap or in bottle (tap better of course), I recommend this seasonal ale while you can get it.

I find it hard to enjoy winter seasonal beer typically. On the other hand, Bells Winter White Ale is a wonderful exception. Tried in a tall boy pint, it has a very refreshing taste (I imagine even more robust from a tap). Although I didn't see color, aroma is slighty citrus, and that is the definition of the finish. The Belgian yeast makes this an incredibly enjoyable beer! I found a winter seasonal that I would definitely order again (hopefully on tap....).
