Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a weizen.

A: Golden hue. Pours a 2+ finger, tight, bubbly, white head. Settles very slowly, leaving dry sticky residue behind as it does. Continually rising effervescence is present.

S: Wheat, orange, and lemon citrus.

T: Wheat forward. Orange liqueur. A little bitter citrus pith.

M: Thick and syrupy. Coppery, bitterness lingers on the palate throughout. Boozy. High alcohol is evident. A bit biting.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Deep golden hue, substantial head, and some nice spiderweb lacing. Nose is wheat and citrus. Wheat and boozy orange and lemon sweetness. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Pours a golden to orange body beneath the foamy white head which dissolves fairly quickly to leave a scattered lacing clinging to the glass.

Aroma is very abundant and varies depending on temperature. Up front it offers wheat, yeast, and grass but as it warms it becomes increasingly citrusy with generous orange peel, lemongrass, pepper, and coriander.

The flavoris fairly citrusy with generous orange and lemon complimented by grass notes, a touchif black pepper, and yeast.

Medium to lighter on body with medium carbonation and a semi sweet, drying finish.

A nice wit and aptly name for the focus on the clementines throughout the aromas and flavors.
