March 2013 - Cold bottle at home in Richmond, as ’Einstök Icelandic White Ale’. Very pale - like a white wine. Smells like bubblegum, lemon, medicinal. Taste is very watery with a bit of citrus, fair amount of carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste like a lager. Very refreshing - would be nice in the height of summer. Nothing exciting though. (3.4)

Feb 2016 - A gift from work colleagues. Nearly smashed it on the floor as soon as I was given it. Yeah similar to last time - has a buttery, wheaty, watery fruit vibe. Fine. (3.2)

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma has a lot of lemon, coriander and spices. Taste has lemon, coriander, spices, sweetness and some wheat. Very refreshing and nicely sweet and even sour beer. Good one!

Crisp aroma. Mandarin, lemon, grain. Taste is mandarin and orange, with som light malts. Almost no bitterness. Somewhat watery finish, but lack of bitterness is replaced with a crisp, sour aftertaste.

herrklemann (104) - AUSTRIA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small white head that fades into a steady rim. Aroma of wheat grains, coriander, very ripe green apple, fermentation aromas, maybe there’s a touch of orange zest, slightly funky, hints of pepper, dry. Taste is straight, dry sourness, with a light bitter finish. Almost bubbly,pleasant carbonation on a light to medium body. Dry, coriander-y finish.
I got very little of the orange peel in the aroma - I feel like it’s mainly there because I expect it to be. Heavy coriander notes, pretty spicy. Nice, pleasant, but not exciting.

Hermod (6493) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Draught @ Řlhus Křbenhavn. Poured deep golden color with a thick white head. White pepper, coriander, orange peel in aroma. Seldom do I get this much pepper notes in witbiers as in this. Flavor has orange, floral notes, peppery spiciness. Round, smooth palate. Pleasant.

Outstanding representation of this style beer. Pours the right color with the right nose and right head. The ones I had were right all around. Skál i botn!
