SEASONAL RETURN: Bell’s Winter White

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.

Commercial Description:
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.

Style: Witbier

Taste Expectations: Coriander & orange & citrus. Smells of wheat, which shines through in flavor.  Grassy hops. Touch of lemon.

Availability: 12oz/6pks.  Draft. Keg Can.
