3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The marketing Gods have struck me down with the Rickards 10/10 White/Red pack for $26 at the Beer Store.
The White is remarkably adequate and refined. Attractive aroma and appearance, cloudy, but not too much so. Just a tad weak on the flavour and palate but considering the price - pretty darn good!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
De couleur jaune légèrement orangés trouble avec un col moyennement mousseux blanc. Nez de pelure d’orange intense et d’épices. En bouche c’est pas très rafraîchissant pour une blanche. Agrumes et épices, peu d’amertume. Ça goûte bizarre...

Surprisingly...pretty good beer. There’s nothing flashy about it, it’s not as good as hoegaarden, but it’s trying to accomplish the same thing. A Belgian style wheat ale for the masses. It doesn’t really need an orange, grow up.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale cloudy yellow pour. A little yeast and spice on the nose, plus a lot of orange citrus. Basically the same for the flavour. I find the amount of orange flavour overwhelming, especially considering the word "orange" is nowhere to be found in the name or on the packaging. If it were called "Rickard’s Orange," I would give it some slack. However, it tastes to me like half a glass of mediocre wheat beer topped up with cheap orange juice. I’ve been in bars where they serve it with an orange slice and only women will drink it - I don’t see why anyone takes this beer seriously. But that’s just my opinion - if you love wheat beer and you love orange juice, maybe this is your thing.
