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.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas ist das Bier Zitrusgelb, leicht trüb. Die Krone ist feinporig, flach und dezent lange haltbar. Der Geruch ist hefig fruchtig. Der Antrunk ist merkwürdig fruchtig. Ich schmecke Pampelmuse. Es ist fruchtig, aber wirklich kaum süß. Ein leichtes Zitrusaroma zeigt sich nach 3-4 Schlücken. Der beinhaltete Koriander kommt im Nachgeschmack sehr langgezogen und intensiv durch. Ein merkwürdiges, aber dennoch sehr interessantes Bier!

330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy yellow with a huge frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is perfume-like with apricot jam, pears in sugar syrup and wheat flour. Smell is very artificial and quite nasty. Taste is stale and artificially sweet with apricots and wheat. Finish is sweet and fruity and lasts way longer than I has hoped for. Could stomach 2 mouthfuls, the rest went down the drain.

Decent beer, way much better than the regular Kronenbourg and 1664. Good flavour, a bit too sparkling

33cl bottle. Very nice beer, it taste is quite citrus with some ananas. hop and yeast feeling can discover only in the end of a gulp. It is a light, thin body but always foamy beer. I liked it, just a bit pricy. Viva France!

Nothing similar to ordinary Kronenbourg, but on its own a fantastic wheat beer with fruit tastes being released.

Had this one on tap, and I’ll be honest on a hot summer day, this little guy is quite refreshing. Citrus & coriander on the nose, hazy yellow in colour. Crisp and clean. If I had to drink a macro-produced beer and be content about it, this would be a candidate.

swiseman (482) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
strong citrus and yeast aroma. pours a fairly thick white head. intense citrus (orange, lemon and apricot) flavours hit early. Unfortunately, this tastes very artificial. Overly fizzy mouthfeel. finish is quite smooth with some lemon. Overall, not bad, but no one will mistake this macro attempt at a wit for anything other than just that (a macro attempt).

Very decent wheat beer with orange flavor and strong coriander after-taste. Probably the best macro-produced white I’ve had.

On tap. Pours very light blone and slightly hazy with slight frothy bright white head. Slight fruity aroma. Drinks very smooth.

330ml bottle pours a pale cloudy straw color with about a finger of white head which left a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy and citrusy. Taste is light malty sweetness with some spices and a light hoppy bitter finish. Light body and moderate carbonation leave a decent mouthfeel. A decent witbier at best.
