On tap at Hlemmur Square, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out floral and soapy hops, light wheat, and light vegetal notes.

At the airport, I got it as hveitibjor and it said 5.0% alkohol. Pours orange wiht a white head. Honey, fruitiness, and yeast are what I got in the aroma (I had this on a plane, not exactly according to the rules). Taste is sweet. Finish is a bit dry. Not bad, but a bit bland.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big white head. Hazy pale yellow body with strong carbonation. Earthy sulphury banana aroma with mealy notes. Dryish mealy banana taste with sulphury notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy banana aftertaste with milky wheaty notes. Decent, but a bit low on the yeast character. (0.5l draft at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Billed as "Gæðingur Hveitibjor" at 5.4%, but I assume it’s this one.)
