A little too hoppy in aftertaste for me. Color a nice straw yellow with a few bubbles rising. Not much of av head, at least in this pour.

I had this on draught in a bar. It pours a cloudy, golden-straw color with a one-finger, milk-white head and lacing. It smells of orange, malt, and floral hops. The taste is fairly sweet at the beginning, with the coriander and cloves taking over mid-taste, and finishing with a fairly bitter hoppiness. For a witbier, it is medium-bodied and easily drinkable at 6% ABV. Overall, it is a nice witbier but Clown Shoes is much better with Stouts, strong ales, and other "big" beers. This wit is fine but it's not Clown Shoes at its best.

Poured from tap into a snifter. Cloudy yellow with no head and minimal lacing. The smell was floral sweet. The taste was very fruity with the clementine taste dominating. A good beer.

Bottle date: 3/1/16.

Poured a golden-copper color in a Spiegelau glass with a 4F head which
took a while to resolve. Carbonation bubbles from the bottom.

Aroma: Fragrant orange, spice, floral.

MF_ very carbonated, tangy.

Taste: transitions well from the aroma. Orange, clove, spicy, tangerine
followed by a spicy, bitter finish.

Excellent approach to a Belgian Witbeer. I especially like the floral and spicy character of the beer.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop beer glass. It pours a cloudy golden with a 3 finger quickly-dissipating white head. The smell is a wonderful citrus. The taste is very orangey and outstanding. It will make a great summer beer. Light on the hops.

Clementine pours an expected light orange-gold and has the citrus notes you'd expect to smell and taste. The flavor is light and fruity, and the aftertaste is tart. Overall, a good beer.

On tap at Blend.
Look is cloudy yellow. Creamy looking head.
Aroma Is orange, lemon, pineapple.
Taste is light wheat, citrus.
Feel is a little flat, light and refreshing though. Well balanced, a good beer.
