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.

Serving type: bottle

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!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a white, one-finger head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of suds across the surface. Very little lacing, and what's there has no stick.

Smell - Primarily spice in the aroma, undercut by some funky herbal character. Light citrus notes. Hints of wheat.

Taste - Follows the nose to an extent. Lots of clove spice upfront, then moderate notes of citrus. Wheat creeps in mid-taste and grows stronger toward the finish. Traces of herbal notes. Finishes with wheat and a light clove spice.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with ample carbonation. Bitey. A nice feel for a wit.

Overall - A fair to good witbier here. Would be better if not for some herbal notes that don't quite fit. One of the more aggressive wits out there, and that's something I can appreciate.
