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.

Cold bottle. 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.

Bottle from Cellar Door, Four Oaks. Pours cloudy yellow, single finger white head. Aroma of wheat, bananas....Floral on the taste, rose petals, wheat, bananas, grass, grain, imagine palma violets...Lovely!

Pours light golden, cloudy from yeast. Elegant white head with decent lacing. Aroma is very delicate, coriander but not as conspicuous as I had expected. Nice balance of flavors, tangy spicy late. Smooth body, expected more mouthfeel. Very tame but drinkable, good to start an evening of beer tasting! Compare with Allagash white. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une trčs belle blanche, au nez qui allie des notes d’agrumes et d’épices. La bouche est superbement raffraîchissante et l’ensemble parfaitement équilibré. Idéale aprčs une journée de ski de randonnée dans les fjords.

jzi (28) - POLAND - APR 28, 2015
Wygląd: puszysta, trwała, biała, drobnoziarnista piana. Barwa złota (chyba trochę zbyt ciemna jak na witbier) i tylko lekko zmętnione. Zdecydowanie zbyt klarowne jak na ten styl. Aromat: Cytrynowe i kwasowe nuty. Po chwili pojawia się pilsowa siarka. Lekkie zabarwienie pszenicą. Brak ziół, brak skórki pomarańczowej, brak goździków..... Smak: Lech Shandy pozdrawia. Tylko bardziej wysycony i z cieniem kwasowego finiszu. Wysoko wysycone i wodniste piwo. Szkoda gadać. Wypiłem na siłę.

djoeye (2167) - Tromsř, NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
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 Tromsř 13€]

keepersj12 (2847) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2015
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 (6129) - 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 (8544) - 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.
