Rickard's WhiteRickard's White

Brewed by:
Molson Coors Canada
Ontario, Canada

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

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.

On tap at Boston Pizza...

A - Pours a hazy murky orange colour with a brownish hue, finger of head with some retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Scent is mild with metallic mandarin, hints of cloves and heavy bready malts.

T - Much like the nose with the bready malts dominating, hints of grassy wheat, a touch of cloves and fruity mandarins.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - A decent wit, nothing spectacular, but easily drinkable.

In general it's a good beer. You can find it everywhere and at a good price. A orsngy taste with a medium after-taste. It is cloudy orange just like most of wheat beers, but i think it is a bit darker than most. It can easily battle with micro-breweries and well known wheat beers. This one of the best molson products and i was impressed by this beer.

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.

Tap at random bar in montreal airport

A creamy 1 finger head fades slowly with decent lacing, super hazy murky yellowish orange juice colored.

Nose is quite citrusy, fresh squeezed orange juicy, clementine, light floral wit like slices with clove, coriander, orange peel, etc, but all quite light, and slight hints of wheat and malts, but mostly seems like orange juice.

Taste brings lighter wit at first, light spices with coriander, clove, orange peel, etc again, and fresh squeezed orange juice and clementine. Malt flavors bring plenty of wheat, light creamy malt, but pretty much nothing else. Finish is dry and fluffy, lots of lingering citrus and clementine, spices, orange peel, and light wheat.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad but fairly lackluster. Just a bit of malts and spices, citrus is more like juice then a wit, and overall just seems like its missing quite a bit.

It pours with a creamy-fluffy white head and a cloudy straw-yellow body. The aroma has wheat and the light fruitiness which reminds me of a lemon pudding flavour. I find it has a light taste, like it was a little watery. The wheat comes out in flavour, as does the orange peel. Other than that, not much spice or fruit flavour. Very little hops and no alcohol taste. It has a medium body and medium (just the right amount) carbonation. Overall, it scores good marks, except on taste which is too mild and watery.
