Lakefront Brewery's Organic Belgian White Ale

Crank this and blast off sea monkeys!

Yet another beer from the pals up in Wisconsin that go by Lakefront. This is (seems like) the millionth review from them and who says we don't pick favorite. We call 'em flavorites; cuz they are usually flavorful. Four score and many years ago we blessed the interwebs with our first Lakefront review where I was thoroughly impressed and rather saucy and spit out mad knowledge. You can read about Lakefront here or say screw it and read on.

So the beer? It's a white Belgian! Not unlike many characters Jean Claude Van Damme (JCVD) has portrayed. It's got a 4.6% ABV and a light, golden haze. Crystal white head that so high you'd think a giant lived above it. Like Jack and the Beanstock. Because the beanstock was high. Right? I feel like I'm losing you fast so let's push on.

It has a wheaty flavor and a refreshing finish. The taste is complimented with orange, lemon and coriander with an oat kicker. If you hadn't noticed from the name of it it's loaded with sooooo organic malts. How "sooooo"? So "sooooo" it's 100%; which is like, the highest you can conceivably achieve in this dimension.

The scent is malty and fruity. I can't really think of anything that is malty and fruity but use your imagination for once. Like a apple caramel pop dipped in a bag of wheat. Oh? You think you can do better? I challenge you!

These are rad for crushing hard and fast and in large numbers. The wheatiness will make it hurt when you pee if you drink like 10 of them but well worth it. What do you mean it isn't sposed to make your pee hurt? I might have another problem. Nonetheless. I picked this guy up as a surprise sampler in a 12 pack which ran about 14 bones which is a pretty solid deal. It's got an IBU of 13 which is as low as you felt when you totally made out with your second cousin in a bowling alley.

This stuff is definitely solid if you are into the whole white beer craze. Stuff's solid if you aren't. Do yourself a favor and check it out Steve Brule style. For your health. And there's a damn jester on the label. A JESTER!!!!!
