Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of lemon zest, pineapple, butter.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Pretty lame. Husky and dull nose, which even has some diacetyl. Bland and husky in the mouth. Disappointing. Ratman197 (14973) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2012

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear and chunky gold pour with a huge white head. Aroma of malt, funk and slight spice. Malty flavor with some herbal character before a mild finish. daniele (9219) - ITALY - JUL 29, 2012

Bottle: pours cloudy, pale orange with lots of yeast particulates floating around. Yeast, dough, bread malts, coriander and orange on the nose. More clove, citrus, cracker and bread malts on the tongue. Full bodied and rich carbonation. Short, dry finish. pleasant and drinkable if not distinctive for the style.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with lots of floating yeast. It has a big foamy head that rings the glass as it subsides. The aroma is very typical of the style as is the taste. It has a nice refreshing quality and is quite easy drinking. sethbreaker (179) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Yeasty aroma ,smells a little bit like baked beans to me for some reason!, cork flew out the bottle upon opening, Bready malts on the palate with some spice and slight lemon, not much else going on, I felt like it needed some more estery flavours going on, ends up being a little dull and uninspiring.

Aroma- Has a slight citrous smell to it. some malt, slight hay aroma.
Appearance- Poured hazy golden with a big 3 finger white head. Bottle conditioned.
Taste- Lemon citrous flavor. Mild maltiness. High carbonation as expected. Very slight spiciness.
Overall- Picked it at Hopcity (6 750mL bottles for $13) entirely based on the price. Not bad but not great. Drinks decent. mcnealc31 (255) - Elida, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
An Italian take on a classic Belgian style, the first thing you will notice about Lacu is its frothy, creamy, and unyielding head. This hazy golden ale’s aroma is full of lemon, orange, and yeast.
Sweet grapes, grassy malt, and a mix of lemon and orange. Hops provide just a touch of bitterness. The 6.3% ABV warms a bit, as well. I also like the champagne characteristics with its effervescence, slightly dry finish, and flavor.
Lacu is smooth, creamy, and exceptionally well balanced. It will also take forever to get through it because the glass is half full of foam after every pour.
Perhaps not mind-blowing, but my, is that tasty DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pours cloudy golden yellow. Aroma is full of spice and lemon curd. Full-bodied palate has lemon, clove, ginger and floral flavors. Tasty.
