Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) recently announced that Winter White Ale has officially shipped to distribution and is now available as the brewery’s current Seasonal offering.
Since so many Winter Warmers and Stouts tend to crowd craft beer shelves and taps during the winter months, Bell’s Brewery opted to take a lighter approach when establishing Winter White Ale, a Belgian-inspired Wheat Ale, as their Winter Seasonal. Cloudy in appearance, this offering is brewed with a blend of barley and wheat malts and then fermented with a Belgian yeast strain. Although this beer provides aromatics and flavors full of clove and fruit, it was created “without the use of any spices.” At just 5% ABV, Winter White Ale is an easy drinking beer meant for “embracing winter.”
The Seasonal release of Winter White Ale can be enjoyed now through January of 2017. This offering is available in 6-packs and 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 4-packs of 16 oz. cans, and on draft at craft beer establishments in Alabama, Florida, and throughout the full distribution footprint of Bell’s Brewery. If you are looking for an alternative to the darker, heavier beers of the season, Winter White Ale is a beer that needs to be on your radar. Prost!
