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.

shrubber85 (9464) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Super sweet pineapple/banana aroma. Cloudy light yellow with small head. Sweet pineapple juice and wheat malt flavor. Like no other witbier I’ve ever had - this is more like a US brewpub’s fruit beer or a light version of the sweet fruit lambics.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2008
Muddy blond color, with big head. It has a very artificial aroma, of lemon; also spicy and soapy. Quite sweet, with just a light wheat touch, as well as spicy/lemony/soapy impression. It’s drinkable just because it’s sweet, but I have a serious conscience problem here. So fake!
Just keep in mind that it’s brewed with corn and wheat (no barley) and with artificial flavorings…

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2008
Wheat beers need to be drunk in gulps and therefore a 33cl bottle is not enough. This beer has a cloudy, warm, but pale, yellow appearance and a thick, very white head. Good lacing. Being partial when it comes to wheat beers I might be bias, but I did find this beer pretty pleasurable. My 10 yr old reckoned it smelt of pizza. I then realized the oregano smell and flavour was quite strong. It also tastes strongly of lemon and grapefruit. I am sure stronger carbonation would have been to its advantage.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Thin dense white head. Foggy pale yellow colored body. Chemical and artificial lemon aroma. Notes of perfume and spices. Dry and light sour fruit flavors. Thin and sharp mouthfeel. Not impressive... a Witbier-wannabe.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle. Pale, hazy gold with a big white head. Off-putting aroma of stale grain, coriander, citrus and yeast. The mouth feel was soupy with more coriander, indeterminate spices and a rough, sour finish. In my experience, the worst wheat beer.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
Hazy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma of lemon and some othe sweet fruit, maybe pineapple along with some minor notes of fermented green grapes. Flavor was pretty sour, like a bad dry whitewine mixed with a regular pale lager. Wierd that the flavor wasnt sweet, considering the aroma. High on carbonation.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Re-rate - Jesus Mary and Joseph this even worse than I first thought. Tastes like the emptied water from a vase of flowers, strained through a bowl of pot pourri, add a dash of washing up liquid, ferment in a ladies handbag. Bit watery, fruitier than Carmen Miranda’s hat and sour. Doesn’t sit nice on the belly.

Bought a bottle from morrisons. Expected a bit more than just that watery sour taste with a hint of fruit. No, not for me.

RobBestwick (706) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottled sample. Orange peel/lime aroma. Pours with a cloudy yellow hue and frothy white head. Sour lemon/lime and orange peel flavour. Some spicey hints and a dry-ish finish.

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
[659-20070922] Cask @ The Magdalen (Oxford, OX). Aroma holds tangy fruit spices. Hazy, yellow body with a big medium-lasting foamy white head. Sour grapefruit citrus peel flavour hints at straw. Medium body. Interesting and different, but not particularly repeatable.
