3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma was of ornages,, light wheat, and banan esters. Flavor was similar, very refreshing because of the clementines, but not overly fruit forward. A great take on this blend.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
very full, sweet, musty aroma of yeast, flowers, honeycomb, and vanilla with a definite sweet citrus tang of the clementine/hops. looks average. flavor is explosively full bodied with sweet citrus, big smooth musty yeast, and some tropical hop flavor (or is that the ’natural’ clementine flavor) either way, very full bodied, pungent, clean wit beer with a definite sweet citrus dimension - palate is semi dry and clean with big lingering flavor - don’t get the whole clown shoe thing, but this is really good - seems like they go all out for most of their beers...

Pours hazy straw, slight thin white head. Aroma sweet wheat malt, citrus, orange, stone fruit esters, coriander and noble hops in the background. Taste sweet orange, bit of spice and noble hops, fruity esters as in the nose, but more in the background. Mouthfeel thin side of medium body, medium carbonation, crisp dry finish.
