Clown Shoes "Clementine"
Clown Shoes Beer - Ipswich, Massachusetts USA
Witbier (ABV 6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy dark yellow amber with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that slowly receded, down to a thin cap which was mostly lasting and had good sticky streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, mild floral hops and a soapy musty yeast with notes of coriander, citrus (clementine) and a light scent of peppercorns.

The taste was lightly malty with a mild citrus sweetness in the beginning, and then had a moderate influx of yeast and a bit of spice, with the finish having a slight citrus peel bitterness and a touch of pepper at the end. The flavor lingered for quite a while following the swallow, with a mildly spicy yeast taste left behind lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body with a creamy dry texture and a carbonation that went a just little above medium.

Overall I really liked this Witbier, it possess lots of yeasty citrus flavor along with a mild spiciness making it extremely enjoyable and easy to drink. Although, I expect nothing less for this brewer who never seems to disappoint...
