daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
From bottle at Grünerløkka Mat & Mikro Festival 2014. Hazy yellow bdy with a decent white head. Aroma of choriander, wheat, oranges. Herbal taste with flowers, wheat, citrus fruit, a weak banana hint is all taste the yeast adds to here. Short sweet fruity aftertaste which is nice, though I think the beer really lacks all the nice yeast esters expected to find in a wit.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle at Food Festival 2014. High fluffy white lasting head. Light yellow green body. Mild fruity lemon aroma. Flavor more acidic and citric than expected and the coriander could almost not be tasted. Low carbonation, short finish.

Not a big fan of white ales but when I do drink them, I like to taste some of the additives - in this car the coriander and orange peel more otherwise it drinks like an ok lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 My first Icelandic beer, bought at Whole Foods in Sarasota, Florida and tasted on August 12, 2014. Cloudy yellow/gold hue, label says "a touch of oats" but they dominate the aroma, flavors of yeast/spice/fruit are well integrated but seem like the beer equivalent of an FM radio signal that’s too compressed--the individual flavors need to stand out more. Good beer but tweaking the recipe a bit could really result in something special.
