Notes/Commercial Description:
1664 Blanc est une bière blanche fraîche et fruitée. De par sa saveur et son design, elle incarne l'élégance et le goût à la française dans l'univers des bières blanches.

Authentique, elle est accessible et légèrement fruitée, révélant des arômes subtils d'agrumes, de citron et de coriandre.

3.66/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: an embossed crystal-blue 330mL bottle with a standard macro label. The hand-grip bottle and the frankly awesome blue takes it well past the half-way mark.

Appearance: pours a slightly hazy light straw yellow with a persistent white hea that hangs about at one-finger. Fine carbonation and brilliant, thick lacing.

Aroma: the usual witbier aromas of citrus, coriander and plenty of wheat. Decent.

Taste: again a reasonable witbier - wheat with coriander, and a light citrus over the top. Not mind-blowing, but quite pleasant.

Aftertaste: a touch of wheat fug with some hop bitterness. A touch of yeast too.

Mouth feel: very nice at this price - better than pretty much any witbiers at AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles.

Overall: a pretty good witbier - not the most amazing I have ever had, but for AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles (2014), this one is well worth it. A good all-rounder.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of skunk, artificial citrus, perfume, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus juice, artificially flavored citrus candy, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer with odd skunk and fake citrus qualities that make this one a bit hard to drink much of.

Serving type: bottle.

330 ml blue bottle purchased from LCBO for $2.25 CDN. Served cold into a Keith's pint glass.

Appearance - hazy pale yellowy color. Capped by just over a finger of fluffy white with fairly impressive retention. Moderate sticky lacing left behind.

Smell- peaches, apricots and some lemon zest. Not a ton else, but a well rounded fruity aroma.

Taste - pretty much the same as the nose, plenty of juicy peach and apricot flavor, with a touch of lemon coming through. Very refreshing and no bitterness whatsoever.

Mouthfeel - lively feel, relatively watery, with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - a different, very unique wit, that personally is a great beer in the summer, as the peach and apricot combination really stands out. Also bonus points for high level of accessibility.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.75 for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a challis

A- 4.0- Opens well and pours a nice white head that stays a bit. Unfiltered and very light

S- 3.75- Rather light. Coriander. Sour

T- 3.25- Lemon hits you right away. Citrus galore. Unbalanced

M- 3.25- Sour. Bit over carbonated

O- 3.57- Not much more than this. Ok white but way too much citrus for me.

Food Pairing

This ok white beer went well with..... Corned beef sandwiches. Nice pickle on the side

Enjoy
