mcberko (10049) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
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. Flavour is very refreshing, with lots of floral and soapy notes, with light herbal wheaty notes. Interesting concoction here. Not a usual wheat beer, but quite intriguing. Decent.

mansquito (4334) - 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 (6816) - 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 "Gęšingur Hveitibjor" at 5.4%, but I assume it’s this one.)

Robe blonde et plutōt opaque. Belle mousse. Les arōmes de la levures sont dominants : pain, biscuit et banane. Arričre-goūt fruité. Intéressant.
