Lotís of bubbles here. Color is tinting towards orange though primarily yellow. Good amount of foam here. Aroma gives off a candied orange peel note of medium strength. The taste is straight up spicy. Lots of coriander going on here. But the orange taste sticks. Almost to the point of creamsicle orange before it pulls back. Those two competing flavor notes work well together in this effort. One of the better and punchier white ales that I have had in a while. Iím glad Sunset Beer Co. had started getting these beers in so that I can take stock of the beer inside.

On tap at yard house. Hazy yellow pour. This head that lingers. Strong citrus and coriander aroma. Smooth, excellent balance. Percent blend of citrus, sweet, spice. An instant favorite.

Aromas of lemon, coriander, orange and grapefruit. Light yellow in color with a fast dissipating foam. Pleasantly light flavors of coriander, orange peel, vanilla and lemon. Subtle hops linger on the finish. Overall, not bad. Nice to see these Clown Shoes guys try a take on a light beer rather than their Imperial Stouts Iíve seen everywhere. Iíd give this a B+ rating.

Great looking beer perfect for a hot summer day. Has its place but not for every occasion

Pours a hazy apricot color with minimal head - a ring of white. Smell is wheat, citrus, yeast and some spice. Taste flows nose with lots of bitter orange peel. Active carbonation with light body. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy gold pour. Nose is coriander, clementine peel, and bitter hops. Flavor is bitter hops, Clemintine peel, citrus pith, and coriander. Did not like the beer at first, as I felt is was too bitter, but it grew on me as I drank it. By the end, I could really appreciate all of the subtle citrus flavors. You really can taste the entire Clementine: the fruit itself, the rind, the pith, and the acid that comes out when the rind is squeezed.

2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
pours a hazy, deep gold with slightly off white head. aroma is pretty much like any other wit (banana bread) with a bit more citrus than one would expect. suppose thatís the name
first sip is delightful citrus and bread, but it turns south fast. feel like it may be overspiced, weird base malts, weird yeast choice, weird something. flavor drops off the more you drink, finishing dry with a cooked cabbage aftertaste.
clearly bottle fermented - maybe mine was kept too warm? but eeesh.

Poured a kind of cloudy straw color with a pillowy and vibrant white head. Aroma is orange, wheat, floral, spice and grass. Taste is zesty lemon and orange with a hint of cinnamon and a not too overpowering spicy finish.

From a bottle. I didnít think I was going to like this becuase so many times lately, these white beer are over spiced. Not so with this brew. Had a rather crisp citrus aroma. First taste is mellowly yeasty tart fun. Certainly not overspiced but there is enough inthere to let you know its not pure white ale. Sizzly, adds interest to the overall experience. Bubbly and somewhat voalitile, must be over 5%. Unique mildly sharp finsih that never goes over the top. Yes, better than expected. I shall not lose hope in these white beers. I like them unspiced and this one is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice cloudy golden body with a white head that had some nice retention and decent lace. Aroma had some nice citrus notes, and some nice coriander. A nice wheat malts. Flavor was similar, some nice notes from the coriander and the citrus flavors were pleasant. I could not really distinguish clementine as a flavor. Slightly over-carbonated but did not negatively affect the beer. Light on the palate.
