Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko/heavy (thanks!). Comes as White Dog Norwegian Wheat Beer. Cloudy yellow (radler like) coloured, small creamy white head, odd lactic spicy nose. Interesting yeasty coriander taste with mild citrusy fruity taste.

Et veldig godt hveteøl for å være butikkøl. Smaker godt til sjømat og grillmat. Kan anbefales til alle som liker og/eller vil forsøke hveteøl, da den er mild og god i smak. Husk å la flasken stå i ro før den drikkes for best mulig smak.

A: Cloudy yellow, wheat color, lacing head. S: Citrus, yeast, faint malts. T: Bland start, some mild sweetness, goes into strong peppery bitterness, with some more spices. M: Quite watery. O: Spice feeling is good, but is a bit too much for a weak start.

GIJOE (469) - Monterey, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap at a pub in Stavanger, Norway. Pours a slightly hazy, pale amber with a fluffy, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus and spice notes. Taste is rather sweet. Light to medium body with a thinner texture, lively carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter. Decent brew.

TBone (11893) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml K-Kamppi. Murky pale yellow color, small white head. Wheat, almost barnyardish yeastyness. Light-bodied. Crisp carbonation. Light banana wheatyness, citric, maybe hints of coriander too. Flavor has no faults and beer is refreshing, but quite boring as such.

mikkos (157) - FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a surprisingly small white head. Aroma in the beginnig was rather off, moldy, cellary and bad. Later on turns to a bit citrusy and yeasty, light. Taste is citrusy coriander, yeast is witbier-like, bananas. Thin mouthfeel, finishes light but with a good taste. A bit mixed feelings about this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (895) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2013
1/3L bottle, from Eurospar Langnes Tromsø. Pours a tiny layer on a frozen hazy bright yellow body. Scents cured meat, meadow and dust. Taste of wheat malts, herbs, grains, and hints of marzipan. There is some sourness in the mouthfeel, but it is well balanced and only slightly watery. At the end I felt sweet malts, some white bread, and again a hint of marzipan. This is a wheat beer for gentle men.
