Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

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!

I wanted this to be good just like a girl I just met but alas not so much. I put this in the disappointment bin along with many other run-of-the-mill ipas. There are certainly better choices.

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.

8/9...pours cloudy darkish gold, mustard like. Chunks of sediment in the mix, and thick fizzy foam to boot. Orange rind nose, bright and bitter. Musty, citrus orange taste, a little offputting. Flavors do not blend well, making the whole experience somewhat clunky.

Interesting beer. The smell is yeasty Belgian and spice with barely any citrus/orange. The taste is crisp with noticeable spice and a dry bitter finish. I expected both more orange flavor and more hops presence. Overall the flavor is just a bit odd. nb

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.

From June 2015
A: Pours a golden straw color with a thin head; lots of floaters
S: Lots of citrus and coriander, but not much more
T: Follows the nose with some floral hop at the end. Was hoping for more flavor based on the description.
M: Medium carbonation, thin / light feel
O: Not something I would buy again
