3.38/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy amber. Not much head but decent carbonation. A tad of lacing. What little head there is is an off-white layer of bubbles

Aroma: Musky Belgian yeast. Spicy pepper and oranges. Sweet butter and caramel. Some earthy floral notes

Taste: Spicy and yeasty throughout. Pepper and coriander. Orange zest. Floral hops hit somewhere in the midpalate and linger. Some oily pine. Some buttery diacetyl. Slightly above average overall

Mouthfeel: Slick and a bit flat. A little sticky

Overall: Not too shabby but nothing I'd rush out to get again. I love Clown Shoes but they have a dozen other brews I'd pick over this one if given the choice. Regardless, worth trying

Nice to have Clown Shoes in MN.
Poured reasonable aggressively and ended up will big full darker head. Semi-cloudy golden amber. Great stamina on the head and dripping lacing.
Fresh hop aroma with nice Belgian yeast spiciness - pepper, fruit. Nice.
Pale malt forward with immediate push of hop flavor with some excess of oiliness. Moderate to less dryness and finishing bitterness, esp. for style. Some fruit flavors and an overall pretty complex presentation. Nice layer of hops left on the teeth. Moderately light feel with heaviness more after carbonation has abated.
Overall a satisfying drink. A slight nudge for the hop oil excess (but it is limited and doesn't prevent it from being approachable).

Poured into a pint glass.

Love the beer's name, but could use a bit more carbonation. An above average beer. One that I would be willing to drink again, but not on my buy list.

A - Amber, clear, rocky 2-finger off white head, average lacing.

S - Yeasty, some malty sweetness.

T - Hoppy IPA with some sweetness.

MF - Light to med body, medium carbonation, dry finish.
