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.

Decent Belgian wit, heavy on cloves, little spice at the end.

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!

Tasted in a pint glass from draught from Firkin on September 9, 2015. Look is hazy blonde, thick white head and some lingering lacing. Smell is esters, fruit and some spice notes. Taste is orange peel, coriander and sweet malts. Feel is light in body and crisp in the finish.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/7/2015. Pours hazy bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming after the finish as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very good witbier. All around good balance and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

All the brews in the beer in a box 12pk were ok, but like others have said, watery.

Good, refreshing summer brew with distinct taste of clove, replacing the ubiquitous lemon, and orange notes present in usual summer beers. Interesting change of pace. The clove gives a little kick on the front end, and mellows out as you finish.
