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.

Aroma Is orange, lemon, pineapple.
Taste is light wheat, citrus.
Feel is a little flat, light and refreshing though. Well balanced, a good beer.

This beer pours a hazy deep golden color with a loose one finger bright white head. Retention is decent, but not much lacing. Smell is corriander, cloves, bread, wheat, but no clementine. Taste is similar with some banana notes and the slightest hint of citrus. Feel is very light and tickles the tongue. Overall a solid beer but nothing special.

Nothing particularly wrong with this, just unexciting. Pours a nice looking clear golden with lasting half-finger of tiny white bubbles. Aroma is pleasantly less sour than expected, mostly bready with slight citrus. Flavor is slightly sweet with orange (clementine) and lemon notes. Finishes fairly dry.
