Last night we went up to NH to see our friend Jen. Got back home at 11:15 an ALMOST did a beer review then. I figured going to bed with a belly full of fresh beer was probably a bad idea.
We’ve got a busy few days ahead of us. Tonight we’re going out for some dinner with some people we’ve never hung out with before. Tomorrow we’re running another 5K (God save me – I have shin splints that are still healing). Tomorrow night we’re having our friends Adam and Elina over for dinner (God save me, I can’t cook). And Sunday I’m seeing my little Bro Nick who I haven’t hung out with since he moved into college last month. Good times!
Before we hit the town tonight I wanted to get a beer review done, so I popped open this bottle of Clown Shoes Clementine White Ale. From the second the top came off, I knew I was in for a different experience; crazy spicy aromas came blasting out of the bottle.
The stuff is ridiculously carbonated…like that fizzy water crap people drink. After you get over the stinging sensation on your tongue, you’ll be barreled over by a bitter taste that I would akin to licking an orange flavored stick of clove. Your eyes will bug out at first, but stick with it. After about 10 sips, my mouth bowed into acceptance and the rest of the brew went down relatively quick.
This puppy is wheaty, spicy, clovy, and citrusy-tart. If you don’t like any of those flavors, stay far from this beer. On the other hand, if you’re down with that stuff and want a beer with some bold-ass flavor, give the Clementine White a whirl!
