mansquito (3906) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2015
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.

larsga (6489) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
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 "GŠ­ingur Hveitibjor" at 5.4%, but I assume itĺs this one.)

Robe blonde et plut˘t opaque. Belle mousse. Les ar˘mes de la levures sont dominants : pain, biscuit et banane. ArriŔre-goűt fruitÚ. IntÚressant.

33cl bottle from VÝnb˙­in AusturstrŠti, Reykjavik. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with sour green apples, notes of not completely ripe bananas and some lightly spicy notes. Moderate sweet, quite fruity with some sour notes. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Quite refreshing, but some slightly unpleasant elements present,

Reimer96 (1443) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head that dissipates into a white ring. Aroma is a great mix of banana and cloves that?s balanced evenly and smells rich! Taste is banana and cloves in an even balance but the body is lacking as its a touch light and leaves a bit of an acidic bite on the finish... Otherwise this is a great hefe.

Draught at Micro Bar, Reykjavik
Cloudy orange-light amber color; creamy head. Spicy aroma, banana. Very spicy and banana-fruity mouthfeel; I sense metallic as well.
