Bell’s Brewing’s Winter seasonal isn’t a dark, spicy, malty beer. This winter beer has a Belgian flair – it’s witbier. Witbier translates to “white beer” originating in Belgium, and is top fermented. This beer style got it’s name due to the suspended yeast in beer creating a hazy, white effect when cold. Thusly, Winter White Ale is appropriately named. The German version of witbier is called weissbier.
Taking its cues from Belgian-style white ales, Bell’s Winter White Ale offers a lighter yet abundantly flavorful alternative to the traditional heavy winter warmers. Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Bell’s Winter White Ale is a beer for embracing winter.
Taste Expectations: Coriander & orange & citrus. Smells of wheat, which shines through in flavor. Grassy hops. Touch of lemon.
