Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths in Iceland. Pours a very pale straw yellow with a thick, generous white head that is long lasting. Aroma is delightful with orange squash, coriander and grapefruit. Other citrus aromas are subtle. Taste is more grapefruit than orange with a herb like undertone. Slight spice bitterness and very gentle sweetness combined with a clean crisp finish make this a fantastic light witbeer.
