Clown Shoes Beer Clementine White Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Clown Shoes Beer Clementine White Ale.
From the Clown Shoes Beer website: “Clementine is Clown Shoes Beer’s Belgian style White Ale. Light-bodied and crisp, this is a terrific White Ale with plenty of zest! Hazy in appearance and healthily carbonated, it utilizes Chambly yeast to energetically shape its wheat malt base. Incorporated in the brewing process is Clementine, sweet orange peel, a hint of Coriander, and Summit hops.
At a sly, easy-drinking 5.9%, Clementine is dynamic and flavorful enough to satisfy discerning craft beer palates, yet light enough to count among “sessionable” beers.
Poured high into a pint or traditional pilsner style glass, drinkers can sip away lazy summer afternoons. As for food pairings, it is the perfect complement to a range of salads and seafoods or light cheeses such as Feta, Monterey and Gruyere.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a large off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma: Sweet and grainy malts, orange, citrus, Belgian yeast, coriander and a touch of peach.
Taste: Orange zest, tangerine, coriander, clove, sweet and bready malts, citrus and Belgian yeast.
Overall: Light and easy to drink, Clown Shoes Beer Clementine White Ale is a good White Ale. This 6% ABV offering is worth a shot if you’re a fan of the style.
