355ml bottle. This is a basic witbier, maybe a cleaner fresher orange character than the norm but nothing noteworthy otherwise.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 7-22-2015 (Bottle labeled Bottled the Middle of April 2011) This beer’s appearance is a large foamy off-white head that mostly diminished, mostly transparent, lightly hazy straw body, slow rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is wheat, malt, earthy, and coriander. The flavor is wheat, spice, malt, earthy, and coriander. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light bodied. A quaffable easy drinking witbier, but it lacks character and it is not all that impressive IMO.

33 cl. bottle at home. White fluffy quickly disappearing head. Hazy dark yellow body with a lot of bubbles. Acidic to sour oranges aroma. Smooth and pleasant oranges honey caramel flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness. Mild notes of pine. Well balanced with an alcohol level that seems just right. Low carbonation and a long dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a 2.5 finger frothy, pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with zesty spice, citrus fruit and bready yeast notes. Hints of pepper and coriander followed by tangerine, orange peel and lemon zest. As it warns, the bread character really stands out and the citrus fades a bit.
Medium bodied and very heavily carbonated with a strong peppery spice presence that lingers over the citrus and yeast notes into a dry finish. There’s a very strong coriander flavor that dominates, slightly overpowering the citrus peel and bread notes. Peppery with subtle orange and tangerine notes. Tart, dry finish. Not bad, but the overpowering coriander makes this beer a bit one-note. Needs some more citrus sweetness to balance things out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: opaque pale gold with one finger of dense white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: orange peel, wheat, coriander. (7/10) Taste: medium sweet, mild bitter, mild peppery spice, light tart. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, dry peppery finish. (4/5)
Well, I was a little perturbed when this “white ale” poured crystal clear - in other words, it’d been shelved long enough that all the fines settled out. But, I swirled around the last little bit and poured it in, turning it white. And, y’know, not bad at all: nicely balanced between the Clementine sweetness, and the citrus peel and hop bitterness. Spiciness builds but never becomes overwhelming. A summery beer, but the orange peel and spice could also go well with your midwinter celebration of choice, too. (15/20)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1248 - 10.09.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Hazy yellow pour with a decent white head. Aroma is orange, ginger, and coriander. Taste is citrus and wheat, with a yeasty kick on an otherwise smooth finish. Not as flashy or impressive as some of the other Clown Shoes offerings, but a delicious witbier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Yardhouse in a pint glass on a football Sunday. Golden with hints of orange and a healthy half finger white head. Cloudy. Aroma is mostly citrus orange with some floral hints. Taste is also citrus forward with a wheaty undertone. Good sweetness. Light and refreshing. Hides the alcohol well. Seems like a really good summer option my darling.
