2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
An unremarkable beer that suggests a wheat ale (which is what it’s 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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thick-hazed amber/orange with a fluffy white head fading to a creamy cap leaving wet lace trails. Orange in the aroma (a little soapy) with lemon & lime as well. Vibrant mouth, finishing chalky. Prominent cereal grains in flavor with the citrus fruit giving the impression of Froot Loops. Orange marmalade. As I ate, the alcohol reared and the beer gave off some peach schnapps notes. Not bad, but not what I’d call a "Wit". Maybe an "American Wheat" or even a "Fruit Beer" given the adjuncts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at The Cadillac Lounge, Toronto - came with a fluffy pure white head and a cloudy orange colour. Primarily orange in the aroma along with some banana and yeast (but not much, and not much spice...mostly fruity). Flavour is more or less the same, but somewhat watery. Not as bold as other beers in this style, but quite impressive for a macro brewery of this size and certainly not a bad product at all. Carbonation is soft and the beer is medium-bodied if still a little on the thin side. Subdued overall, but still quite refreshing. It’s good to see this style becoming a little more mainstream. Perhaps it could open the door for other, more adventurous, beers?

UPDATED: APR 21, 2010 on tap at alice fazoolis in TO. after trying to orders this the last 2 times i went out i finally got a taste. served with an orange slice floating beneath an inch of off white head. aromas are mainly of orange with a bit of spice. appearance is hazy orange with tight strings of carbonation. flavours are mostly citris with typical wit sweetness. well balanced and very refreshing. not the best ive had but for an easy to get macro wit its palatable.

Yet another beer I end up putting in my Hoegaarden glass that makes me wish I’d just simply bought Hoegaarden. The only negative thing I can say, though, is the citrus flavour/aroma should be perhaps a bit more subdued. Overall, good beer for a macro brewery.

Heeeeeyyy, WTF?! A macro marketing a witbier in Canada? Extra points right away just for the effort! Bottle, in some cafe in Vieux Montreal. Hazy orange, frothy merangue of a head. Aroma is mostly wheaty with hints of orange and spice. Light wheaty palate, sweet with citrus and spice adding some proper character, although not with tremendous confidence. A nice change from the rest of the rickards line-up to be sure. Not a bad effort for the masses.
