Pours a light golden orange with a half finger of airy carbonation.

Very citrusy with notes of orange zest and fresh squeezed orange juice.

Orange and lemon zest with a light toasted malt character.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, soft, crisp.

Overall, an interesting wheat beer but definitely not one of the better examples.

Golden orange color. Off white head. Some lace.

Flavors of lemons and spices. Lots of fruits. Clementines and orange peel. Some wheat flavors. Grassy hops. Citrusy.

Mouthfeel: smooth and crisp. Light bodied. Ends a bit dry.

Overall, a really easy drinking wit. Lots of flavors, but still refreshing. I dig it.

22oz bomber with no date. review is from notes

look is a hazy yellow-orange with floating sediment. great fluffy head with no lace. smell is light wheat, orange zest, spice. taste follows with a dank sweetness, but otherwise typical: wheat, clove, lemon, nutmeg, clementines(oh! i get it now...).

OK but doesn't do anything different or especially well at a premium price.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Typical witbier fare. Murky straw colored. Lots of visible carbonation without retaining much of its filmy white head. Looks inviting. Nice but nothing unexpected

Aroma: Lemon zest and other citrus notes. Obviously some orange. Coriander and that crisp clean-smelling wheat smell. Smells sweet and juicy with a slight spiciness

Taste: Follows the nose. Big citrus zest up front. Sharp wheat crispness with a little bit of spice on the mid palate. The finish is sweet and yeasty. Somewhat reminiscent of a tripel actually. More well rounded than a typical witbier. Really nice flavor. Stands out for me

Mouthfeel: Crisp, tingly from the spice and carbonation. Very refreshing. More body than your average witbier

Overall: I've always been a fan of this brew (and brewer). Clementine doesn't necessarily do anything differently than most witbiers, they just do it all right. Among the best, if not the best, domestic witbiers I've had. Very afforadable and just an extremely well rounded beer
