Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Benji521 on 03-19-2014

A summer sipper built for lawn chairs, lawn games and lawn mowing, Fresh Slice features the spicy, estery flavor profile of Belgian yeast laced with the juicy hop flavors and aromas of American hops.

This White IPA recipe tips the scales with a slice of clementine, a hit of coriander and an 1/8th of...wait, what? This one features a crisp, fresh citrus ripeness deriving from additions of clementine juice and sweet orange peel in the brew process. The first Otter Creek can offering, this is one slice you'll be holding all summer long!

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a white head. A bit too hazy to really see any visible carbonation. Leaves some spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Initial hoppy aroma as soon as you take a whiff. Some citrus hops blend with the pale malt base.

T: Not as hoppy as anticipated from the aroma. Sizeable wheat backbone dominates most of the flavor. While there are some citrusy hops, they take a backseat to other flavors.

M: Medium body with ample carbonation. A touch sticky from the resinous hops but remains crisp and drinkable.

Overall as others have mentioned, Otter Creek set the bar pretty high with their first two of the Brewmaster Mike series. While this is by no means a bad beer it had big shoes to fill. (777 characters)

In a pint glass the beer was a hazy gold color with a nice white head that left a good amount of lace.

Citrus and spice in the aroma.

Lots of orange taste. Some coriander.

Very nice, easy-drinking beer. (205 characters)

I really don't like this beer. Similar to Allagash to me in that it tastes... rubbery... or something. Like a black licorice taste. Can't quite put my finger on it. But I don't like it. (185 characters)

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Yellow with a very thin white head.

Smell: Surprisingly not much for any scents.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of cloves, hops, and light citrus.

Overall: Not bad, refreshing beer. But not my first choice. (276 characters)
