COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the centuries-old Belgian tradition, our White Ale features the complex flavors of the classic witbier, including orange peel and coriander – all brewed with pure Icelandic water that delivers a cool smoothness that is flavorful and refreshingly drinkable.

Really white head, hazy yellow golden body, varied spots and pads on glassware. Aroma; coriander, ripe banana, dough jam, lots of wheat malts, dusty faint strawy hops, wrapped in orange notes. Taste; fruity wheat malts, mandarine, strawy hops, dough, flour, buns, fruityfruity. Didn’t detect any oat, but I guess those made that flourish part. Finishes in clementines, wheat mild malts, fine fading juicy final. Well carbonated, soft juicy in the mouth. Average body. Really alright beer. [33cl btl 5.2% T@Bardus Tromsų 13€]

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma is orange and lemon with some spice. The flavor has the fruit and spice with a nice malt back bone. Nicely down. Drink cold and fast in the hot weather.

Lights and carbonated like a lager. But crispier with citrus and herb notes alongside the grass in the hops. Not bad. Bottle at Honest Burger.

gunnar (6113) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 24, 2015
Bottled. Pours weak hazed straw colored with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, lots of coriander and some lemon. Taste is dry with a clean mouthfeel. High carbonated, good wit imo.

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
On tap at 73 in Reykjavik, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out notes of grass and herbal notes. Flavour is just as bizarre, with grassy and herbal notes. Sort of a corn and grain dominated finish. Not very refined. Okay, but not my thing.

Draft at EPCOT. Light golden pour with white head. Light wheat, spice, and orange citrus aromas. Flavors are spice and orang citrus with a good amount of wheat flavors.

adasko (789) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 14, 2015
Fajny kwaskowy aromat, trochę przypomina sour. Jasno żółty, bardzo mętny. W smaku mało sie dzieje, mocno wodnisty. Mocno nasycony, delikatna kwasowość, mocna słodowość, bardzo pijalny, orzeźwiajacy. Bardzo dobra piana.

TizzleJizzle (726) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2015
Sampled from a bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a clear straw yellow with a massive white head and nice lacing. Tasted mostly coriander with notes of orange peel, lemon zest, and a hint of tart citrus. Average carbonation, medium body. Final thoughts: the coriander overpowered everything else, but I haven’t had a beer that relied on this much coriander so it was a nice change of pace.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a slight transparency about it allowing a light stringy carbonation to be seen rising. A one finger white foamy head dissipated within less than twenty seconds. Mild ringy lacing stuck in rings. The smell had a nice sweet orange peel and lemon with a slightly spice to balance (coriander) adds a nice touch. The taste was slightly sweet and spicy through the citrus and coriander. There’s no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonated nicely, this one strolls delicately across my tongue in a sweet sticky way. Overall, I say this was a pretty good witbier, definitely would have again.

Hazy yellow, thin creamy White head. Aroma of strong citrus and a medium body.
