quite beautiful cloudy golden with lots of lacing in the wine goblet. Nose of cloves.

Tart but full of malty flavors. Rich and mouthfilling with very nice carbonation. Not so intensely orange, but quite flavorful. A wheaty mouthful of flavors with the banana and clove. The yeasty Belgian flavors are quite refined and add just a little bitterness at the end.

After having just had a Elder Betty from Magic Hat, it was interesting to taste another big fruit beer. This one wins for the remarkably nice sudsy and creamy mouthfeel. On the sweet and spicy side if you're in the mood. From the 12 oz bottle.

Poured into a chalice a hazed tangerine color with a nicely formed 1/2 finger white head atop.Alot of yeasty phenols in the nose mixed coriander spiceed notes,Iam not sure if I have come across a wit with that much of a yeasty phenolic presence.flavors have a nice clementine orange presence upfront then the yeasty phenolic spiced flavors really pretty much take over,a light smattering of coriander in the finish.It's not bad but it;s a little yeast heavy handed in my opinion.

Tried at a tasting by Clown Shoes at Social Wines in South Boston which convinced me to buy 22 oz brown bomber bottled 4/2012

A: warm hazy golden orange with thin white head.

S: orange, clove, grass

T: orange, clove, mild pepper

M: good amount of carbonation up front. Mild chewiness in middle and dry finish

O: very good witbier. Straightforward but solid. Would certainly try it again. Also paired well with a spicy dish.

Pale golden orange with some haze. Hardly a head to top it. 3.5

Peppery aroma with coriander and a smidgen of lemon zest. Some straw and husky wheat with an earthy hop character. 4.0

Crisp, dry spice flavor with some coriander and white pepper. A happening, yet dusty, farmhouse yeast with some piquant character and subdued citrus. Clean finish with some citrus rind and bitterness. A very refreshing witbier. 4.0

Spritzy and crisp. Medium-light body. Best served cold. 3.5

My first Clown Shoes brew. A refreshing summer witbier with saison yeast character, low ABV, and exceptional drinkability. I’ll take this with me during a hot weather outing anyday. 4.0

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

appearance: hazy orange-yellow. off white nondescript head.
smell: citrus fruit, some floral hints, a pinch of aromatic spice.
taste: more of the same. surprisingly dry.
overall: Not bad. It's almost summer here in Ga (which means scorching already) and my favorite time for lighter beers (i mean lighter than imperial stouts). Abita Strawberry, Sam Smith Organics. This is ok, but I'll reach for the aforementioned first.

Pours a golden orange color, plume of bubbly white head, decent retention. Smell is of ripe juicy oranges, light tang of wheat and bready yeast round out the nose with a faint bit of black pepper. While scent screamed citrus juice, taste was more akin to biting into a not fully ripened orange and getting a bit of the white rind as well, backed by bready and lightly spicy yeast, bitter to an extent. Medium bodied, bubbly and some lingering sweetness. Overall, there was a lot of fruit, but I've had juicer beers that used only hops.
