3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly good offering from Clown Shoes and the first of their brews for me to try. This is a good example of a witbier and the fruit is not overpowering by any means. A very well-balanced brew. Somewhat dry and chalky on the finish though but not a bad brew to enjoy on a hot summer day.

Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a cloudy dull yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are coriander, clove, old closet. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly bland with a medium body. Not a bad beer honestly. Cheers!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, yellow-orange with a small off-white head that fades to a ring. Aroma wheaty and yeasty, bubblegum, oranges and spice. The taste is moderately sweet, yeasty, a little fruity and ever so slightly spicy. Medium-thin, very slightly dry, and smooth. Decent wit; not extremely bold, but it makes for a nice refresher.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
For a Belgian it’s a bit harsh, too much bite not enough orane and coriander. Malty and hoppy but not much else

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy pale gold with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma is orange peel, bread flour, light yeast, light coriander spice and a nice dose of citrus hops. Flavor is more orange peel, though it almost takes on an orange flesh flavor, grainy whole wheat flour, citrus and floral hops. Palate is light to medium body, with a slightly slick entry, moderate carbonation and chalky finish, I actually think this beer would have been better with a little more carbonation - not a statement that I would usually make about a (often over carbonated) Witbier. Pretty good for a Witbier.
