22oz bomber with no date. review is from notes

look is a hazy yellow-orange with floating sediment. great fluffy head with no lace. smell is light wheat, orange zest, spice. taste follows with a dank sweetness, but otherwise typical: wheat, clove, lemon, nutmeg, clementines(oh! i get it now...).

OK but doesn't do anything different or especially well at a premium price.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Typical witbier fare. Murky straw colored. Lots of visible carbonation without retaining much of its filmy white head. Looks inviting. Nice but nothing unexpected

Aroma: Lemon zest and other citrus notes. Obviously some orange. Coriander and that crisp clean-smelling wheat smell. Smells sweet and juicy with a slight spiciness

Taste: Follows the nose. Big citrus zest up front. Sharp wheat crispness with a little bit of spice on the mid palate. The finish is sweet and yeasty. Somewhat reminiscent of a tripel actually. More well rounded than a typical witbier. Really nice flavor. Stands out for me

Mouthfeel: Crisp, tingly from the spice and carbonation. Very refreshing. More body than your average witbier

Overall: I've always been a fan of this brew (and brewer). Clementine doesn't necessarily do anything differently than most witbiers, they just do it all right. Among the best, if not the best, domestic witbiers I've had. Very afforadable and just an extremely well rounded beer

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a hazy deep straw color with a smallish bubbly white head that persists for a while. Smells of clove and allspice with a sweet light sugary malt base and a light lemony tart spicy wheat twang. The flavor is sweet honey and sugar with a bunch of clove and lemony orange with a tart wheaty edge. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet mouthfeel. Not my favorite style and not my cup of tea. Stylistically I've had better examples of the style, this one has clashing flavors imho.
