From the brewery . . . poured a hazy gold with diacetyl (buttered popcorn) and orange peel aroma. Tart wheat flavor is followed by orange peel and coriander then muddled diactly finish. It was my 1st beer of the day so I tried to like it but could not. This beer has fermentation problems yo!

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...

Just not a fan of white beers. I gave this one a shot, but just not for me as they remind me of watered down beer

I had this during a visit to the brewery, where it was described as "like Blue Moon," which thankfully it was not. It was not all that sweet, but was very clovey in taste with a somewhat disturbing aroma. All-in-all, I'm not a fan.

Appearance was a pale cloudy with one finger of head. Aroma was bad with no spice and a stale corn smell covered in sweetness. Taste was very clovey, and OK. Mouthfeel was also a little flat.

Pours a hazed and cloudy pale gold color with visible yeast in suspension. Frothy two-finger head with good retention and adequate lacing.

Subtle aromas of wheat and lemon citrus. Opens grainy and rough on the palate with a tang of wheat, followed by a mild hop bitterness. Spices come into play with suggestions of orange peel and coriander. White pepper surfaces in the background. Crisp with lively carbonation. Finishes somewhat dry.

Not an exemplary Witbier by any means, but certainly passable for the style.

A: Pours cloudy pale yellow, <1 finger of head that dissipates very quickly.
S: Orange peel and coriander are very evident, nothing else of significance.
T: Again, orange peel & coriander are dominating tastes with occasional hint of lemon. All in all, not a great amount of flavor. Got better as I continued to drink, but still unimpressive.
M: Light & fizzy, mild acidity.
D: Not that great of a beer, just average. For the style, I'd prefer a Blue Moon or Sam Adams White Ale. I likely would not buy another Lakefront White Beer, but wouldn't reject a free one.
