3.73/5 rDev -1.6%
Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a weizen.
A: Golden hue. Pours a 2+ finger, tight, bubbly, white head. Settles very slowly, leaving dry sticky residue behind as it does. Continually rising effervescence is present.
S: Wheat, orange, and lemon citrus.
T: Wheat forward. Orange liqueur. A little bitter citrus pith.
M: Thick and syrupy. Coppery, bitterness lingers on the palate throughout. Boozy. High alcohol is evident. A bit biting.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Deep golden hue, substantial head, and some nice spiderweb lacing. Nose is wheat and citrus. Wheat and boozy orange and lemon sweetness. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Pours a golden to orange body beneath the foamy white head which dissolves fairly quickly to leave a scattered lacing clinging to the glass.
Aroma is very abundant and varies depending on temperature. Up front it offers wheat, yeast, and grass but as it warms it becomes increasingly citrusy with generous orange peel, lemongrass, pepper, and coriander.
The flavoris fairly citrusy with generous orange and lemon complimented by grass notes, a touchif black pepper, and yeast.
Medium to lighter on body with medium carbonation and a semi sweet, drying finish.
A nice wit and aptly name for the focus on the clementines throughout the aromas and flavors.

Pours with lots of carbonation and immediate smell of orange peel and yeast and is a cloudy, hazy light yellow.
Taste is subtle fruit, yeast and a rolling bubble feel in across the mouth. This beer is very refreshing for a spring or summer day given its light body and I'm surprised its no longer being made and looking forward to trying the regular "clementine"

Pours hazy amber with a white head.
Strong coriander on the nose alongside doughy wheat and subtle orange peel. Very herbal. Peppery too.
Flavours focus more on the citrus but there's still a big herbal coriander note and doughy wheat. The coriander seems excessive.
Needs a lighter body and more carbonation.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.
I missed this one yesterday, but it's been taken down by me this time... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy sunset amber topped by a finger of lightly-glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises orange peel, coriander, light clove, very light black pepper, cracked wheat, and a hint of booze. The taste brings in more of the same, with a decent contingent of bitter and alcoholic orange peel. The alcohol is certainly present, but it's not really a negative factor here. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a surprisingly good imperial wit, one that overshadows the original for me.
