A genuine Belgian-style wheat ale, White holds a depth of flavour. It's brewed with wheat and oats, and is unfiltered to present a natural cloudy appearance. Mild hints of ground coriander with dried orange peel mingle for a light spiciness that ends with a refreshing, smooth finish.

This brew pours very nicely, and looks wonderful with a nice head.There is a pleasant aroma of fruitiness: pineapple and citrus especially. The beer itself is cloudy and stays that way, just like any regular wheat beer. However that's where the accolades end. It is nothing close to a German wheat beer...I'm not sure if the Belgian style is meant to be different. Lacking any real body, the initial fruityness just dies after the first sip and as it rolls over your tongue. Every successive sip tastes blander than the previous one. There's a slightly chemical aftertaste to this. I did find it thirst quenching with decent carbonation. Overall: went great with pizza and pretzels... More so than on its own: Just a pretender.

Look: Mango coloured orange (That's the best way I can describe it, haha). Bubbly white head that faded quickly.

Smell: Fruity. Mostly orange and pineapple, a little lemon, spices, and some bread crust.

Taste: Just like it smells. Quite fruity and sweeter than I thought.

Mouth: Light bodied. A little watery and thin. Easy drinking!

Overall: The first witbier I've ever had. Probably better options out there, but not a bad find. A decent summertime brew no doubt.

First white beer that I tried.
The look is golden with an opaque density. You don t see the bubble going up.
Carbonation is really light.
The taste will kick you after 10 seconds you swallowed the beer. I will say a real strong kick. I wish it was less powerful and the taste will come from the beginning, it would be more enjoyable. Still much better than a Molson dry or a Corona. They say it's a Belgium-Style wheat ale, not too sure about that.
Overall would I recommend it ? Sure if you are in a bar and you have an option between a Corona a Rickard's White take the Rickard's, but overall there is much better on a market as a Belgium-Style wheat ale
