Wow! I've tried all kinds of beers from around the world and this is my first Icelandic brew. There must be something about the water up north because this beer is fantastic. Smooth and flavorful. I kind of thought of it as being like a Hoegarden White but cleaner. I shared one with my neighbor and he said it was the best beer he has ever had. It is delicious, but not the best I've ever had. If you are into trying beers from different locations, this is a worthy beverage. I strongly recommend this one.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a pale white/yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of oranges, spices. Taste is the same, some wheat, spices, oranges, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and highly sessionable beer.

A-pours a hazy straw pale yellow with a billowing white fluffy head with excellent retention
S-grassy lemon with some undertones of sweet malt and spice
T-grassy lemon up front followed by malt sweetness and finishes with a clean bitterness on the palate
M-light and crisp with high carbonation
O-nice, clean crisp beer that isn't has heavily spiced as a lot of witbiers which is a good thing

3.54/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Beautiful pale gold with solid white head. Noticeable sediment left in the bottle.

S: Very faint lemongrass and a hint of malt. Aroma diminishes quickly.

T: Extremely clean, refreshing, slightly citrusy. Orange peel and coriander are noticeable, but as accents and not at all overwhelming. Much drier than most white ales.

M: Highly carbonated; fine-ish beads which hold up in hot weather. Relatively smooth.

O: One of the better white beers i've had. Not too heavy, sweet, or fruity. Again, very clean.
