COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: In May 2007 Skagen changed the recipe for "Nordlys" making it a German Hefeweizen instead of a Belgian Wit. Also the hopping has changed.

Beer4000 (4487) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
500 ml bottle. Cloudy golden body with a white head. Weak aroma of citric fruit, wheat and banana. Mild flavor, quite typical German weissbier but a bit weak and anonymous. Medium body and short in aftertaste. Not a very interesting beer at all.

fellebag (809) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2013
On tap 10cl. Light apple juice. Low carbonation. Aroma is apple, citrus, yeast and honey. Flavour is apple, ginger and flour. And perhaps strawberry and peach. Fresh and fruity is it anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
Medium white head. Hazy opaque yellow body with light carbonation. Oily yoghurty banana aroma with herbal honey notes. Dry-sweet milky yoghurty ashy taste with orangey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy ashy aftertaste with yoghurty notes. Great aroma, but the flavour does not live up to it, too ashy and verging on the acidic. (0.5l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)
