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!

UXO (816) - CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Appearance: cloudy pale gold with one finger of dense white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: wheat, pale malt, faint orange peel and spices. (4/10) Taste: mild to moderate sweet, mild bitter, slight tart. (4/10) Palate: light to medium body, soft carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (3/5) I usually don’t have the orange slice in witbiers, but this one kind of needs it. Not really getting any banana, either, and the cloves or coriander are buried pretty deeply. “Inoffensive” is about the best one can say for it. (9/20)

Beerathon (1558) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Hazy yellow pour with thin head. Wheat, orange rind, and slight spice round out the nose and flavor. Not terrible, but lacking the true witbier qualities.

Gerbeer (2353) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
On tap. Pours a muddy Amber with moderate head. Aromas an flavors of oranges and coriander - lots of coriander.

BeAndrews (30) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Cloudy light orange pour with a thin head. Citrus & yeasty aroma. Taste is of the same. Low carbonation. Don’t forget the piece of orange!

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Opaque golden yellow, orange tinted body with a huge white head. I find a lot of macro witbiers have a hhuge peach aroma, just like 1664 it is true here. Some orangey citrus as well. Not too impressed, but a very hard to mess-up style (from what I’ve seen, never seen one I didn’t enjoy,

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
341 ml bottle from a Rickard’s sampler twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a tall witbier glass. Pours a hazy amber shade with a white cap of froth that leaves consecutive rings of lace. Aroma is sweet wheat and reasonably bright hops, with de rigueur banana presence; the same applies to the flavor (I’m not sure, but I think clove is lying buried in there - I need to train my senses further), with added orange, lemon and lime from the hops. The carbonation is low, the body is slightly above simply thin, and the conclusion is soft and uncloying as it tapers away. Not an exciting or dynamic wheat ale, considering I’ve had and loved the excellent Schneider Weiss Tap 5 and its ilk, but it’s very pleasant, drinkable, friendly, and thankfully unsyrupy or heavily spiked with seasonal flavors (I’m looking at you, Tree Brewing Vertical, with your wintertime ’vanillausea’).

Yamato (33) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2015
Hazy golden color. Complex taste of fruit. Lemon and orange. Not as fruity as other white beers. Light body. Crisp finish. Ordinary beer. Not having again. I would choose other white beer.

Draft. Opaque yellow color, bright white head. Aroma of citrus and light spice. Taste has bitter orange, lemon. OK.

mathieuc (2189) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Served with a slice of orange that was quickly discarded. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of orange essence/extract and that about it. Taste is of same fake oranges, not even trying with the coriander. Body is light and carbonation too f******* high. Overall a not so good wit that just barely makes it.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Turbid deep yellow with a small white head. Spicy nose (coriander), with sweet orange and floral hops. Sweet over ripened citrus, wheat, spiciness, low bitterness and milkish notes. A bit cloying but easy to drink, summery, not dry enough and light bodied. OK.
