A definite orange peel flavor mixed with a decent amount of hops. First "double white" I’ve had. It’s much better than a traditional Belgian white - probably my favorite of this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tightly packed ivory head floats above a golden tangerine body. Subtle nose of orange peel, caramel, toffee, and a hint of spice. Candied citrus, honey, wheat, and vanilla. Wouldn’t have guessed the style. Not as soft a yellow nor the coriander one would expect. Medium mouthfeel. Meh.

22 oz. bomber. It pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. The aroma is very fruity with big time oranges, peaches and coriander spice. Hints of alcohol and citrus peel. The flavor is intense with oranges and a good amount of coriander. Full bodied and very fruity and spicy. I actually quite like this. I normally cringe at beers that claim to be "imperial" versions of classically nuanced styles, but this was well balanced and well executed for a big beer. Nice job.

Bottle Pours hazy bright orange with a quick foamy white head that settles to a sudsy film and slight lacing. Aroma is strong biscuit and orange/lemon peel and hops. Taste is all the above with strong orange lemon rind some bread/biscuit and a subtle bitter hop bite in the finish. Palate is full and fizzy with a chalky drying finish. This is a wit on steroids!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus, syrup, white-wheat-pale on crack. Very bold and very bright honey colored. This one is not a typical beer, but very surprising. I think if you smashed a double ipa into a wheat beer, you would fine the Clementine 1.5. Very sweet and boozy. Love it or leave it.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a very small head. Sweetness to the nose with hints of metal, despite coming from a glass bottle. Heavy sweetness to the ale from the yeast, which I don’t like.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet yeast, wheat and lemon aromas. Medium bodied with lemon pledge upfront turning to a warm wheat and banana finish.
