Clementine is a Belgian-style Witbier brewed by Clown Shoes Beer, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.
The Wit pours a cloudy marigold and is topped by a half-inch thick cap of white foam. The head persists briefly and leaves behind patches of sticky residue.
The aroma is quite wonderful with a scent of orange peel and coriander.
The palate follows the nose but those flavors are somewhat muted. A biting finish of floral hops and pepper offers more zing. An undercurrent of wheat binds it together.
Mouthfeel is light but not quite as effervescent as expected. Finishes dryly.
Clementine is a refreshing brew but not one that quite measures up to the better witbiers.
