ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 21, 2014
Vári Művek. Igen sűrűnek látszó, mély vörösessárga színe van, vékony, krémes és kitartó habbal. illata igen gyümölcsös, csipkebogyós, élesztős és komlós. Íze is a sok, édes és fanyar gyümölcsökkel kezd, igen sok maláta is érződik, aztán az egész átúszik nyelvcsavaró keserűbe, amiből csak itt ott lóg ki egy kis élesztő és egy kis csipkebogyó. igen sűrű, testes, elég buborékos. Utóíze keserédes, vége határozottan keserű és száraz. Érdekes, friss és mégis nehéz ital ez.

Tap. 10 oz pour in tulip. Orange, one and half finger head. Great lacing. Aroma is excellent dipa aroma. Smooth, very sweet. Alcohol is hidden. Very nice finish. The fruit sweetness is high but it works. Nice beer to grab a handful of.

Fixersbrewing (8) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2014 does not count
22oz bomber from Specs in a tulip / Pours a reverent Angel Gold hue / Aroma of Fall leaves after an afternoon shower laced with eucalyptus / stiff head yet pillowy and creamy, two fingers / Bold upfront leads to a cloying but serious center of astute Belgian heritage followed by a building wave of 2x IPA !!!!! This is the mastery hidden in this brew / Long lingering finish very clean and settling as a new born baby nestled in its mothers bosom. A Favorite Forever. Bravo Ipswich.

DuffMan (6438) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hazy medium golden colour, average white head. Pale malts of medium sweetness, a touch of floral honey, lightly spicy, with a kiss of floral hops. Not a hint of the 10% ABV. Nicer than I expected actually.

drsordr (986) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle pour hazy orange. Nose interesting mix of fruity and pine hop mixed with banana, clove, and spice. Taste, bitter bite up front, some tannic bitter, then mid palate candy sweet. Late palate Belgian spice and light bitter finish. Nice progression of flavors.

BuckeyeSammy (537) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2013
I have really enjoyed a handful of other Clown Shoes beers, and was really thinking they would do something unique ith this style. No balance here. At 10% abv, the alcohol is really dominating on the palate.

bwa5879 (598) - Portage, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Very cloudy deep orange, offwhite head that’s very short. Very fragrant - scent of juicy citrus hops and belgian yeast, bready, sweet and a little bubblegum and rye. Tingly mouthfeel, lively carbonation, oily finish. Flavors of citrus and pine hops, bitter cloves with belgian yeast and rye maybe. Somewhat disconnected between the belgian and IPA. Nothing bad at all, just nothing groundbreaking.

boxofrane (2045) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a lot of belgian yeast, orange peel, and a lot of floral notes. The taste is light bitter, big orange juice, lemon juice, slight peppery finish.
