3.43/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled March 2011 in the 22 oz. bottle.

Beautiful deep golden-orange and rapidly bubbling carbonation, adding to a fluffy white head.

Fruity, with the clementines providing a huge kick of citrus right up front, hiding behind it the yeastiness and hoppiness. It's there but reserved on the nose.

General characteristics of a white with bits of hops and yeast, while the title ingredient remains dominant. Bitter and drying but still sweet citrus, almost like it's the rind that is incorporated, rather than anything having to do with the juice. the hoppiness then is far removed, sitting way back on the palette. It does though carry the citrus through here, playing more of a supporting role.

Unique in that not many breweries can pull off incorporating big citrus into a beer that traditionally only features moderate citrus. But I think this would be a good white ale without the citrus - just add some lemongrass and it might be more enjoyable. It adds something - I'm just not sure it lives up to the hype.

2.74/5  rDev -25.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

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.
