I find it quite remarkable that I sit in my lounge in New Zealand, able to drink a product from Iceland. Just remarkable. Anyway, so this is hazy pale yellow in colour with a skim of transient white head. Aromas of lemons, faintly chemical Belgian ale yeast and meringue. Pleasant enough. Quite vigorous carbonation in the mouth followed by gentle flavours of those same lemons that isn’t sweet and isn’t sour either. There’s a definite but gentle tang at the beginning of the end. At face value this is a pleasant lunchtime snifter but not the most complex or assertive beer I have drunk. But still, it’s Icelandic! It has novelty value for me I suppose.

Fresh wheat and malt aroma with notes of fruits and herbs. Clear and pale with a white short lasting head. Medium sweetness and light-medium bitterness. Average carbonation, medium body and a bit watery texture. A great beer from Iceland.

Bottle in Belgrade. Thanks Vlada. Very pale yellow, still a little yeast funk to aroma. Clean, juicy, crisp. Quite delicious but hard to put your finger on it. Tasty.

massingasetta (555) - München, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2016
Was not really sure what I was drinking when tasting a white ale. The taste however quickly resembles a Witbeer type of beer. Not quite the Weissbier but slightly more drinkable and light in nature. This is a good interesting beer.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 17, 2016
Slightly hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma has the typical coriander and orange peel. Taste starts with the same spices, wheat sweetness and gets slightly bitter on the finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Really fresh and easy to drink, a witbier done by the book.
