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.

A Mes rate: Draught some where... I care not where...
Awful. Synthentic attempt at a wit in a desperate attempt to claw back some of the drinkers who may have started on 1664 and since become more discerning. Thing is they now wouldn’t touch this crap with a barge pole, unless of course they happen to be a daft rater dork like me. Bag o’ shite. Lemon flavoured card. Over carbed. Really I can’t be bothered.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2007
Canned, hazy white coloured beer with some light carbonation and a medium white head. Sweet fruity, herby (honey?) aroma. Medium palate. Finish is sweet fruity, herby, strange maybe to sweet, artificial aromated/flavoured beer.

Pours a cloudy body that is lightly yellow, with a thin creamy head that fades to a white layer. Aroma is extremely fruity of peaches. Flavor is very strongly peachy to, almost like peach candy. Palate is thin and syrupy.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2007
(Bottle) Pale yellow colour, hazy, with big frothy white, but brief, head. Fruity, sweetish, slightly spicy nose with notes of lemon, pineapple, coriander and a hint of ginger. Fruity taste with lemon, pineapple, notes of coriander and a hint of wheat dough. Short finish, no bitterness, thin body. A bit too sweet with bubblegum notes. However, not bad at all, actually better than expected. But there are lots of more interesting belgian witbiers out there.

Hazy yellow with a small head. Quite sweet, some citrus and peach. Poorly balanced. Thumbs down.

Had this in a can at an Auto Grill in France...at least I think it was this. The can labeling is not consistent with anything on the site, but it was definitely trying to be a witbier. Aluminum can smell and orange. Syrup and malt followed by a very metallic taste. High carbonation and a watery body. VERY sorry excuse for a wit, but not horrible I suppose.

Quack-Duck (8674) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2007
bottle, bought in England. Looks all right but is full of ridiculously artificial fruit flavours. It gives to me the impresion of a bad copy of a Belgian witbier - didn’t like it at all.

Capa (2317) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Pours a hazy, light straw with a nice foamy head. Citrus, banana, pineapple, and peach. Pretty inviting aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma but muted. Citrus, banana, and pineapple with some yeast. Medium/thin body. It’s not bad, but not what I expect in a witbier.
