Oh Hoegarden, look what you have wrought with your shrewd marketing and mass availablity? Another mass market brewer trying their hand @ something new.

Decent looking brew even if the color is more remeniscent of a Hefe like Paulaner than a Wit like Hoegarden or even Richard's for that matter. Pale aprocot, unfiltered ( they got that part right..yay!) Nice head, lot's of lacing down the sides of the glass.

Hmmm...certainly lacking in the aroma dept. Coarse, grainy malt seems to dominate here with only a hint of spice and citrus.

Hmmm...Heavy on the malt up front...very faint coriander spiciness follows. Noticeable metallic twang along with a dry, slightly citrus-rind bitterness at the end.

Smoother than any Keith's product to date, but nothing to get too excited about either. Carbonation level @ least fits the style.

If I was to choose between Rickard's and Keith's for a domestic, Canuck Witbier my vote will go to the former. This seems nothing more than a watered down attempt to capture some of the craft/import segment of the market.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours a cloudy pale golden colour. Head is whiteish, bubbly when poured, invisible after a while. Not a lot of lacing. Yeah, really very meh.

Smells a bit like smelly feet, but a lot of fruit to it as well. Decent orange peel note, touch of apple juice, some hazelnut character as well, maybe some chestnut. Fruity; not bad but nothing special.

Orange peel from the start, quite rich and fruity upfront that bulges in the middle and sadly goes away largely by the finish. Bit of a spicy, aniseedy note late-mid with a touch of bread yeast, then finish is a bit grainy, slight coriander spice but otherwise nothing, really. Leaves with a slight cola aftertaste. Has some witty elements but falls a bit short.

A bit of body to it, but there needn't be. Bit heavy and gluggy, finishes dry but also a bit thick.

Stylistically OK, but really didn't do much for me.
