Picked this up in Totowa this past weekend, not having any beers from Clown Shoes in quite some time. I like this style of beer a lot but for some reason, this didn't do it for me. It went down well and was true to form but there wasn't anything notable about this and once the head settled down, this was a somewhat flat Witbier that needed a slightly bolder array of flavors to it.
The pour to this was indeed good, as this beer had a hazy, golden hue and a thick head that settled into a nice layer of foam. Quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the bottle as well, as it too me a while to swirl it out. No date on this bottle either, as I would have liked to have known how old this was. Lots of citrus zest in the nose with some lemon, pepper, and straw. Not a lot of wheat to be tasted and this was just a hair too thin and sour for me. Some more carbonation would have been great too, as I didn't see or feel any when I took my sips.
Of course, the alcohol wasn't that heavy here, which lead to this going down faster than it should have. While beers of this style tend to be light and easygoing, this could have been a bit more heavy and bold. Citrus lovers might want to substitute this for a glass of orange juice but now that the spring is here, there are much better examples of this to be found on your local retailer's shelf. Only worth a try for fans of Clown shoes.

Pours a very pale yellow. Has a good foamy head, but otherwise reminds me of a mass-brew. Smells of straw and yeast and spices, WTF? Not expected.
Has a slightly sour, bubbly taste with only a hint of the clementine I was promised. It's certainly light, so it would be good on a hot day.
I was expecting much more based on their good reviews. Overall, nothing special. Ok light beer + fruit but much more to say. I'd skip it.
