Lakefront White Beer

Today I'm drinking Lakefront White Beer brewed by Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The label seems a little dated, depicting a jester type with an disproportionately-sized glass of beer. This is a Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with coriander and orange peel. Bottled during Week 2, June, assuming 2011.

Wheat aroma with noticeable orange and coriander. I swear I didn't cheat; they are just prominent. Thick wheat texture and big flavors above all else. Some fruity orange blends into that along the way to a spicy coriander finish. The aftertaste is a little medicinal and unbecoming. Good carbonation, body much too dominant for the flavors. An OK beer.

Frontier Coriander Seed Powder, 16 Ounce Bags (Pack of 2)

Frontier Orange Peel Granules Certified Organic, 16 Ounce Bag

Arrowhead Mills Organic Whole Grain Wheat, 28-Ounce Packages (Pack of 6)

All those Lakefront brews have that "Early 90s Microbrew" thing going on with their labels, I think!

So many breweries put out the crappiest labels ever. My home brew friend in Palm Beach makes better labels in some dumb free software at home.

I know it's about the beer, but having an attractive label will bring new business and if you back it up with good beer in the bottle, you have a winning combination.

These labels suck. I can draw better than that. Surely they've heard of the invention of the computer in Milwaukee, right?

I comment a lot on label art b/c it is also an interest of mine. If you are also interested, I suggest www.PourCurator.com which is a great site with regular fresh content and analysis.
