Beer Review #8

Rickard's White
5.4% Alcohol/volume
Molson Breweries
Style: Belgian white Beer (Witbier)

Appearance: When the beer was poured into the glass it
                    created a good foamy two inches of head.
                    The beer itself remained fairly cloudy and the
                    color of apple cider, with lots of active bubbles.
                    Score: 3/5

Taste: Rickard's white smelled of peach and seemed very fruity in aroma.
          The first taste defineltly had a taste of citrus, but was flat in the mouth
          with not much action from the carbonation.
          Score 3/5

Mouthfeel: Upon closer examination the beer was very light and dry. Had a slight
                 hint of an trailing aftertaste. It didnt have a bitter bite to it and the
                 bubbles were soft on the tongue.
                 Score 3/5

Beer Type: Witbier are meant to be Cloudy, pale, taste of orange and spice
                  flavors, with decent carbonation. I feel the carbonation was a little
                  lacking and didnt taste much of  spice and lacked some clear
                  orange flavor.
                  Score 3/5

Drinkability: The Dry finish of this beer makes it a good one for a pub. Something
                   to have to help add to the flavor of something spicy or salty. It isn't
                   the best for this style of beer, but its a good starter for the category.
                   Score 3/5

Scoring 15/25 Not the best beer in the world but not the worst for sure.
                       You could do a lot worse!
