When you say white, do you mean while like this screen or clear?

Do you think maybe brood was extracted as well? That would make it cloudy.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

All I know for sure is black locust is clear like water and has a VERY mild flavor.
