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 -0.8%
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.

330 ml blue bottle served in a snifter.

Aroma: lihtly spicy with a pronounced note of ripe arpicot.
Orange and apricot dominate the flavor, with some wheat underneath. Very good sweet/tart mix, with faint bitterness in the aftertaste.

Soft lively carbonation nicely complements the medium-light body.

O: a soft, French vounterpart to Magic Hat #9

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a hazy glowing lemon yellow body with a sticky soft peaked snow white head and a gentle carbonation gliding to the surface.

S- The big perfume aroma of apricots and some softer club soda notes finish with a papery aroma.

T- The faint peach stone note leads to a soft dry tartness in the finish. There is a dry flowery taste that lingers with a soft little carbonic acid note.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a texture that feels very flat on the tongue and is a bit odd.

O- This beer has some nice apricot and peach characters that are soft enough to be very drinkable but still has a sort of artificial quality to them. It was nice to drink a 6-pack of this but there is something that is just a little off, and I would prefer a more natural yeast ester profile.

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
