look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle to pint glass.

Pours hazy yellow, quite cloudy. No foam. Strong wheat nose. Slight citrus too. Taste is a light citrus lemon/orange. Very little bite. Kind of a flat taste. Like white bread. Barely can tell it is a beer. Very mild.

Liked the label, not impressed otherwise. Enh.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is pale and yellow with a ring of white head and almost no lacing. Smell is citrusy with notes of lemon and wheat bread. Some lemon zest in there as well. Taste is bready and light in flavor. Malts are followed by lemon juice. Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Overall, a straightforward pale wheat with nice lemon accents.

Serving type: on-tap

Another sour miss by Lakefront.

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, deep yellow-hued body with a thin, small white head, which leaves a nice film, but no lace.

Smell: Altho freshness date is recent two months, this beer smells stale, sour, and of ammonia.
Slight whiff of banana, wheat, spice, but predominantly an industrial taint.

Taste: Watery. Not a great feel. Follows the smell, there's the standard trappings of wheat beer, but it's monkeyed with by a kind of cleaning closet staleness and industrial flavor. Drying, but feels like a kind of alcohol or industrial after taste.

Mouthfeel: Watery. Not a great feel. No creaminess

Drinkability: Not much character, watery. I'd pass.
