Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a wheat beer glass. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus peel and some wheat. Tastes of wheat with a slight citrus peel note, very nice. Beer is light bodied very nice finish with nice carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer.

DATE TASTED: December 28, 2013... GLASSWARE: Hoegaarden tumbler...OCCASION: post-NFL playoffs... APPEARANCE: hazy, yellow-orange hue--approaches pale orange juice--with a thin white head; reasonable lacing... AROMA: faint drifts of orange intermingle with wheaty esters--weak and ephemeral... PALATE: rather thin and flat; slow carbonation--swiftly consumed! probably a thirst quencher in the summer months, but not such a suitable companion in the winter...TASTE: softened, suppressed peach, orange zest, subtle lemon...a watery, tuned down wit... OVERALL: tough to hate on this one, as it may well be the season weakens its experience; still, the overall effect is an unmemorable one, an American wit that cleans and rinses an already clean palate...

12 oz bottle poured into Lakefront imperial pint.
Bottled during May Wk4 (2012) notched on the label.

A - Swirled with sediment, Lakefront's White pours out a totally hazed pale yellow straw with a milky white head. The tall, well-retained pile plateaued and crept down slowly leaving little dollops of lacing on the glass for an almost picture-perfect witbier!

S - While not overpowering, coriander and orange peel really come out on the nose giving the aroma a good balance of spice and citrus to the omnipresent wheat. White pepper, grainy pale malt, and earthy huskiness add to the country-side, rustic nature of the beer. White has a crisp, refreshing, and very inviting aroma!

T - Mild honey-like sweetness seeps in through the background while grainy pale malt builds the base for soft wheat flavors and light yeast nuances. White pepper enters again, shrouded by delicate-but-zippy coriander and orange peel citrus.

M - Abundant wheat in Lakefront's White makes for a soft, voluptuous body that's riddled with tiny carbonation bubbles and a mildly tart finish. Citrus zest and spice dry out the finish as well as balancing some of the sweetness for a beautifully round beer.

O - Lakefront's White embodies the rustic and simple nature of a witbier, gently suggesting coriander spice and orange peel citrus through the pleasing wheat and pale malt body. Incredibly well-crafted and superbly drinkable though not inherently Belgian, this wit is one pleasing pale beer.
