Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

I didn't realise Rickard's made anything besides Rickard's Red so I gave this one a go. Not the most exciting beer I've ever drank. Tried it as it was the only "new to me" craft beer available where I was having dinner. The dinner and the beer was less than memorable. There's better Witbiers out there.

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.

Rickard's White is an okay beer. I find myself drinking it pretty frequently as its one of my "safety beers" at bars; It's at pretty much every bar in my area and its a safe fallback when I go to the sports bar's or types of establishments that only carry mass produced macrobrews. I'm never impressed with it any time I drink it, but I'm never disgusted by it either. It's very light on the wheat taste, the wheat is almost unnoticeable, it tastes very filtered, its light on the coriander and heavy on the orange, although not nearly as heavy on the orange as shock top.

All in all its a decent beer for instances when you don't have much better options, but I would never go out of my way to purchase it

Poured on-tap in a shaker pint at a Margaritaville in Canada. The beer was cloudy orange, opaque, with a filmy, white surface coat of head. Nose of baked bread, orange zest, lemon, all-spice, and clove. Flavors are fruit forward, blended and sweet, with orange, lemon, and pineapple. Bready backbone, with very subtle spice presence. The aftertaste is cloying fruit sweetness, dominated by pineapple. Light, frothy finish, with a sweet linger. Bleh.

2.56/5  rDev -17.2%

Serving Type - 473ml can poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy straw colour, with tinges or orange. On top sits 3 fingers of white, dense head which sticks around for a good deal of time. A huge amount of carbonation is visible through the haze.

Smell - Predominantly oranges, but not in a good citrus hop kind of way; it's more like expired orange juice. There is also some light wheat and 'bready' notes.

Taste - A good deal of citrus is present here as well, but much like the nose, it's very unpleasant. There is next to no wheat flavour as you would expect from the style. There are however some light spices. Towards the finish there is some very light bitterness, but again not much for the style.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, with ver high carbonation and a dry, sticky finish.

Overall - 2.75/5 I use to love this beer years ago, and I still feel it's not bad. That said, reviewed for the style, it simply doesn't measure up.
