Lakefront White Review

Name: Lakefront White
Style: Witbier
ABV: 4.6%
IBUs: 13

On to the next beer in my Lakefront Brewery Sampler pack. This time, we have a beer simply called White, complete with a 40's style jester/cherub-looking character holding a glass of beer. As you can imagine, this is a witbier and it's a fairly light one at that, only coming in at 4.6% ABV.

Appearance - Moderately hazy bright yellow color with a mild amount of visible carbonation. The head is pretty thin after it settles but with good retention and the lacing left behind is also quite plentiful.

Aroma - Malted wheat & coriander with some light citrus notes and floral hops along with some light yeastiness.

Taste - Much like the nose, there's some malted wheat and coriander upfront, followed by some citrus notes and light floral hoppiness towards the middle and back, with some very mild bitterness making an appearance in the back. Aftertaste is a touch of coriander with a light yeasty finish.

Nothing special as far as Witbiers go and this certainly won't turn any heads, but it's sessionable and easy to drink and that's all I can really say about it.

Lakefront White - 7.5/10
