Otter Creek Fresh SliceOtter Creek Fresh Slice
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Otter Creek Brewing / Wolaver's
Vermont, United States | website

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
A summer sipper built for lawn chairs, lawn games and lawn mowing, Fresh Slice features the spicy, estery flavor profile of Belgian yeast laced with the juicy hop flavors and aromas of American hops.

This White IPA recipe tips the scales with a slice of clementine, a hit of coriander and an 1/8th of...wait, what? This one features a crisp, fresh citrus ripeness deriving from additions of clementine juice and sweet orange peel in the brew process. The first Otter Creek can offering, this is one slice you'll be holding all summer long!

In a pint glass the beer was a hazy gold color with a nice white head that left a good amount of lace.

Citrus and spice in the aroma.

Lots of orange taste. Some coriander.

Very nice, easy-drinking beer.

I really don't like this beer. Similar to Allagash to me in that it tastes... rubbery... or something. Like a black licorice taste. Can't quite put my finger on it. But I don't like it.

12 oz bottle

Pours near clear, lighter near golden amber, but with a load of floaties doing their thing. Spotty off white head, leaves some low lacing as well as some fine lacing sheets ...too many particles floating for my tastes.

Belgian yeasty sniff, along with lemons, and ripe fruits

Tasty enough with more yeastyness, and Belgian qualities, bubblegum, fruit, lime and wheaty malts...lighter body wise, and fairly refreshing and tasty...nothing amazing, but a worthy warm weather quaffer

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Yellow with a very thin white head.

Smell: Surprisingly not much for any scents.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of cloves, hops, and light citrus.

Overall: Not bad, refreshing beer. But not my first choice.
