Really stoked on how good these beers from Iceland are. Blindfold it's an actual true to style Belgian White better than Hoegarden. So yeah there's that.

Taste: Yeasty, bright citrus, subtle malt, hint of minerals.

mouthfeel: very soft

OVerall: Highly recompensed.

Great tasting white ale, with hints of orange and coriander. It's like a more pale version of blue moon. Easy to drink, and nice subtle notes of citrus.

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.

A nice white ale, full featured and fairly committed. I would call it almost an imperial white given the flavor depth and presentation. I liked the richness and enjoyed the nice branding as well. I am very comfortable recommending it to anyone who prefers their beers sturdy.

Nice appearance. Straw colored and cloudy. Fizzed over a bit on opening. Pineapple and citrus on the nose. Citrus and coriander are apparent. Mildly sweet. Watery mouthfeel. Light, crisp, refreshing beer with wide appeal. Good lunch beer on day after Christmas!
