1664 White is a fresh and fruity white beer. Because of its flavor and its design, it embodies the elegance and taste of French in the world of wheat beers. Authentic, it is accessible and slightly fruity, revealing subtle aromas of citrus, lemon and coriander.

Spab (2938) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2011
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very cloudy straw yellow with moderate-sized white head. Aroma of candied apricot/orange and a hint of coriander. Taste is very sweet tropical fruit with again very subtle coriander. Somewhat syrupy. Too over the top on the sweetness but not a bad summer sipper for a commercial beer.

Pours well: light yellow, spritzy and cloudy. Very fruity; pineapple, peach and apples, with a touch of coriander but nowhere near usual for a wit. Sweeter than it needs to be, but I’ve tried far worse witbier attempts by big commercial brewers. Not bad.

Bouteille bleue (!) de 330ml. Bière jaune laiteuse trouble, mousse blanche. Le nez est frais, d’agrumes, abricot, chanvre, coriandre. La bouche a du fizz, un peu à la manière d’une eau gazéifiée, les saveurs d’agrumes sont bien prononcée, pour la piscine et pour les femmes, plus près du shandie que de la bière.

Refreshing. Good on a hot summer’s day. Tastes like it’s infused with peaches instead of the usual orange. It’s worth a try to all wheat beer drinkers!

Hmmm... flavoured wheat beer... normally I prefer beer without any artificial additives, such as glucose syrup and aromatic caramel flavour, but it does blend well with the orange peel, spices and coriander. Gives it a more fruity taste. Good summer sipper.

Koelschtrinker (14076) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Spritzig hefiger, leider aber zu künstlich süßer Antrunk. Auch die auftretende und weite Teile vordergründige Bananennote wirkt künstlich, das Bier steigert sich hier sogar noch. Ab dem späten Mittelteil etwas säuerlich, danach nehmen die Aromen schnell ab. Oberflächliches Wit, das zudem zu künstlich erscheint. 9/5/6/4/5/5

Metalchopz (2715) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
Played this bar called the Atomic Rooster in Ottawa and they had this one on tap. Pours a cloudy golden-beige with a small white head that leaves a small amount of lacing. The glass it came in from Kronenbourg is graduated frosty, so I thought the glass was chilled before serving. But no. It was not. The scent was of light oranges and hints of honey. The mouthfeel was thicker than I expected. The taste was different as well - Apricots, not orange zest, nor coriander. Overall, too mild (just like their popular 1664, but interesting because of the apricot flavour.

Bottle from Franprix. Smells like fake peaches. Tastes like Hoogarden mixed with Trolli-O peach candy. I’m guessing they are using the same artificial flavor chemicals. But it comes in a strange blue bottle with a white cap.
