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.

A hazed pale blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, fruity esters, light curacao, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, nice and smooth. Bottle at Fish and More, Reykjavik.

kramer (5733) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a cloudy yellow body with a fizzy white head that had decent retention. The nose is bright and spicy with lots of coriander and orange peel, light yeastiness. The flavor is pretty traditional, nice spiciness with a subtle yeastiness, very soft with a lingering coriander note. Light bodied, soft on the tongue, soft carbonation. Really nice Wit, from Iceland no less.

Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. Nice fresh citrus aroma. The taste has plenty of lemon citrus and a touch of corriander. Light, reefreshing easy drinking.
