2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had it twice in last week - City Grill Eatonís Centre and The Pilot pub at Cumberland/Yonge.
Not bad for a molson product. Cloudy pale yellow appearance with thin head. Aromas of citrus and some slight spicy herb of some kind. Taste is less satisfying, hints of orange and other citrus, perhaps corriander, a bit of pepper. Clean finish. Not bad, good choice when thereís nothing else worthwhile on tap.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught, Christieís Carriage House
Cloudy dark yellow. Orangey, malty nose. The body starts full but almost immediately after the first liquid rolls down my throat the whole thing comes undone. Gasoline and spent grains come in, with a hint of citrus and precious little else. This is a bait and switch, the way it looks and smells like a decent wit but then ends up really sucking. Gimme sugar, gimme spice, gimme wheat and itíll all be nice. Promise me that and then donít deliver and I will not be a happy lad.

Suprisingly better then I thought it would be. Hazy yellow with light head. Wheaty and citrus aroma. A touch thinner and sweeter but not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Dull, cloudy off-orange. Lacks any distinctive qualities, other than possibly the debatable nature of its claim to be a wit. Heavily carbonated and sporting precious little wheat flavour, this may have rated higher if it was billed as a lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, St. George Armís, St. George, Ontario. I was happy to see something new on tap that Iíve never had before... Already the stigma of it being Rickards made me think that it wasnít going to be all that great. How would Molsonís make a white beer?
Served with a lemon that I quickly disgarded, It also wasnít touching the beer. I later read the beer coaster for this beer and it recomended doing this, probably because they know it lacks anything special.
Kind of cloudy pale yellow with small white head. Some kind of faint spice aroma is off in the distance that is hiding around a mild fruity aroma that is somewhat citrusy. Flavour is equally bland. I couldnít distinguish what spice was hinding, I read the coaster... it said corriander, but I wouldnít have known. Mild something citrus in the flavour. Watery palate not much body.

I had my first Rickards White at the Radisson Hotel In Calgary during Stampede. After a golf trip earlier this year to California, I had weiss withdrawal...I couldnít find a weiss beer in Kamloops on tap...Until Stampede in Calgary...
Whats with the Orange Rind on the Glass? Orange peel is used by gardeners as a slug repellent...I think we can use Rickards White as the spray form of slug abatement...
A good weiss beer should be drunk naked...without duress.
What a mess...
Now I am beginning to rhyme, and not a hint of corriander or thyme...

An unremarkable beer that suggests a wheat ale (which is what itís supposed to be). Lacks zest, but is fairly easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 On tap at the New Edinburgh pub: Cloudy, beige with generous bubbly white head. Aroma of citrus, apricot and corriander spice. Delightful flavor with hints of spices, lime and oranges. Palate is creamy with a dry finish. A decent Hoegaarden wannabe.

Not being a fan of wheat beers, all I can say this is one of the best of the worst. But if you like wheat beers, then you should like this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light orange poor with a frothy white head. Aromas of coriander, cracked wheat, lemon zest, peaches, oranges and other spicy notes. Nicely carbonated and medium bodied... not expected from this beer. Good bitternes, creamy, grainy and chalky mouthfeel with a dry crisp finish. Flavors are fruity, yet it still has that Witbier feel/taste to it. Very refreshing and a good effort from the big guys.
