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.

The thin and citrus dominated taste just didn't interest me. Had I been blindfolded and asked to identify the beverage, I would've guessed several different cocktail mixes before even hazarding that this was "beer". The product isn't bad, but I hesitate to classify as beer.

This is simply an effort to leverage an existing brand. It doesn't really have much to offer as a beer. Bland, watery mouthfeel, weak as far as its taste and aroma go. I hate drinking a beer where they've clealy skimped on the ingreients and spent all their money on the marketing and the label. Not offensive, but not worth your time either when there are better wits easily available. Yawn.

Had this one at a party at a friends place. I am grateful for the beer, so this is the only place where I will criticize this beer.

The beer is model after a belgian white. A weak 1cm head. (The Rickard honey brown had NO head whatsoever). Pale blonde beer that is slightly cloudy, nothing special at all. Taste of artificial orange peel like, with some unflatering wheat like taste in the background. The beer finishes with a harsh tartness and bitterness in the back of the tongue. Not good.

A: Towards the orange, with a 2 finger head. Mild lacing.

S: Overwhelming orange smell, like orange juice, with a bit of wheat and banana.

T: Orange, coriander, bit of a wheat finish. A bit too sugary; the sweetness is overwhelming.

M: Feels too thick, not as light as I expected it to be. Carbonation is average.

O: Good for a macrobrew, but not really anything spectacular.

Another Rickards to review.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white, one-finger head into my glass. Very nice.

Where's the citrus? The aroma? Anything? Bueller? Bueller?

The next part isn't very pleasant. The citrus is here albeit in a manner that overwhelms my palate. Not much else to find. Too sweet.

Mouthfeel is horrible. Syrupy.

I think that a wit simply does not translate well in a can.
