Bottled August 2011 (6 months old) damn...

A - Seems to have lost some finesse. Only a slight ring of lace that seems sticky. Color is a hazy bright orange amber.

S - Smells like a typical Witbier I get some orange (OK) and some coriander with some lemon.

T - Taste is some bitter orange rind, mild spices, and a slightly hoppy finish.

M - Light to medium the carbonation is still very bubbly on the tongue.

Overall it still seems to have held up rather well and was kind of mad that it was this old. Still a great brew overall

On Tap at Blue Dog

Clementine in the glass has a light golden look with some specs of hazed orange as well. A cap of white stuff with moderate lacing. Smell is ripe off the tap with wheat, some citrus and orange at the forefront. some faint pale malt in the back. Taste is a wheat beer on the fruitier side. Some faint orange, peach, clementine flavor with wheat and a touch of coriander. Feel is pretty light bodied with a nicely done up carb. I could go for a pint of this in the summer.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of clementine and orange in the nose along with notes of wheat and hints of spices.
T: Lots of fruity flavors of clementine are present in the overall taste, which also has notes of wheat. Notes of spicy yeast and hints of coriander are evident towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There are some hints of dryness in the finish.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and sessionable and has some refreshing properties. Compared to other witbiers, it has a lot more citrusy flavors and a bit of acidity.

22 oz. bottle tried 22 Oct 2011. Served in the 0.5 L Franszikaner wheat glass.

Medium sized fluffy white head. Well carbonated. Cloudy, color of orange clementines (says A). Smells fragrant, oranges, tangerines, orange flowers, yeast, some coriander and white pepper. Very juicy citrus, oranges and meyer lemons. Touch of pithiness, not overly sweet. Medium body, warming alcohol. Lots of yeast. Somewhat dry finish. Touch of a farmhouse ale to it. White pepper and alcohol in the aftertaste.

Alcohol seems hotter than 6%.

Pours out an impressive cloudy yellow and copper. Soft white head about 1" deep. Standard aroma of clove and coriander with some orange rind.

Plenty of bitterness for style, clove and coriander pretty dominant, moves the citrus rind to the side. I thought the carbonation was a little bothersome, was looking for more of a orange cream experience, not orange 7up. Also was a little older in flavor, maybe this sat at Total Wine for some time, it was marked down $4.99/4pack.

Old lady was kind of meh on it too, neither of us identified anything that was an off flavor, but it is easily worth $1.25 a beer, so it gets another half notch on the overall scale.

A: Pours a crystal clear golden/tangerine yellow with a finger tall fluffy white head. The head has moderate retention and pretty good amounts of lacing on the glass. No visible carbonation.

S: Aromas of wheat with hints of orange and spices (corriander most likely). There is a little bit of a yeasty smell present as well.

T: Flavors of citrus (orange, lemon, clementine - which I recognized from the box I just finished eating), grasspy hops, and wheat. There is just a hint of tanginess from the yeast and light bitterness which is refreshing.

M: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: A really easy to drink beer and a nice thirst quencher. I really enjoyed this beer - another pleasant offering from Clown Shoes, I have been impressed with this brewery thus far. This beer is quite sessionable and I will look forward to quaffing quite a few come the spring/summer - though I will have to trek into NY to purchase this one.

Poured from a 12oz bottle made in Aug 2011

It started out with a nice frothy 2 finger white head, reduced to a thin ring. Minimal lacing. Very cloudy, looked like a glass of grapefruit juice. Flavors rolled nicely off the tongue, wheat, citrus, coriander, grass, pepper. Slightly tart and dry, but very smooth. Carbonation was spot on. I'm not a big fan of wheat beers but this one left me wanting another.

A: An almost completely clear golden pour. Big frothy white head. Retention is decent and so is the lacing.

S: Big wheaty presence along with some nice orange and coriander. A tiny bit yeasty.

T: Again, wheat flavor is surprisingly strong, keeping this nice and light. Orange melds nicely. Some nice spices, mainly coriander that I can discern.

M: Effervescence keeps this one pretty light on the palate.

O: Overall a pretty good witbier. Honestly better than I was expecting - I consider this to be in competition with Allagash White. It's pretty simple like most witbiers, but very tasty and very refreshing.
