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!

4.02/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very cloudy, milky orange color with hints of yellow. Big, fluffy white head. Tons of thick lacing.

Aroma: Lots of citrus and spice. Very orange juice leaning. Really nice marriage of Belgian yeast, citrusy qualities (from juice and hops) and spice

Flavor: Lots of tangy juicy citrus. The sweet orange peel, clementine juice and blend of hops make this beer a citrus bomb. Coriander is a big player as well especially during a dry, citrusy, spicy finish. Light malt character with just hints of bread and caramel.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing, if a touch milky/creamy. Might just be this particular glass. Not distracting overall.

Overall: Totally my kind of beer. Moderately bitter citrus juice. (716 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)
