Clementine, a Belgian-style Witbier by Clown Shoes Beer

Share This Review

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.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

The aroma is quite wonderful with a scent of orange peel and coriander.

Flavor

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

Mouthfeel is light but not quite as effervescent as expected. Finishes dryly.

Overall

Clementine is a refreshing brew but not one that quite measures up to the better witbiers.
