355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Gold color & crystal clear appearance. White froth, close & lasting crown. Herbs & intense coriander, light maltiness to the nose. Sweet caramel malt, lemon & spiced flavors. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Low bitterness & slight sweet finish. Flat. Unexpected disappointing from Clown Shoes.

Bottled on 9/10/13. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy pale golden; small off-white head that leaves solid retention and decent lacing. The aromas are nice. Lots of peach and orange marmalade. Lots of yeast. Some coriander in the mix as well. The flavors are very good, but I suppose it could be slightly cleaner for the style. Tons of orange zest and tangerines. Hints of spice. More peach along with some tangerines. Lots of citrus. Hints of lemon and herbs. Some cracker malts. There's a subtle hop bite to it. It finishes pretty dry. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It has very prickly and active carbonation. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's a nice beer to relax with. It's refreshing as well.

This is a very solid witbier. I really like the citrus notes. I wish it was slightly refined, but there's something I really like about this beer. It was enjoyable right now in the winter, so I can just imagine enjoying this in the spring/summer.
