Big sticky brilliant eggshell white foam atop a very clear light yellow with that green tint of a Belgian wit. Aroma is noticeably coriander and fruity esters. Taste is similar to the aroma. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a bit of a lingering orange peel astringent/bitter quality.
Well done, elegant Belgian wit. Light with plenty of aroma and character.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass about 1 month prior to the 2016 BB date

Appearance - Pours a pale yellow-golden color with an ample white head that settles to t durable top coat and leaves sheets of lacing.

Smell - mixed citrus with light yeast, coriander, and clove.

Flavor - Lemony citrus, pale malts, wheat, and orange peel. Faint spicy notes including coriander.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with soft, high carbonation and a semi-dry finish.

Overall - a very drinkable and well-balanced, if mild, witbier.

Cloudy, unpolished orange and yellow. Chunky. Aroma was citrus rind. Pepper. Coriander and more spice rack.

Taste gets more spice rack, wheat chalk. White pepper. A little bitter. Not their best beer, middling.

It's not bad looking. Blonde with a white head. Clean and clear.

Coriander carries the nose and taste, but there's also a hint of clove and spice. Pretty low key.

Mouth is simple, too. Clean and crisp.

Totally drinkable but totally forgettable.

What can I say except I love the organic Belgian White beer from Lakefront. Unfortunately, it is not available in Minnesota, or at least it is very hard to find.

I think this beer, and S-N's Kellerweis are the tops in this class. Just great stuff!
