This is a lemon coloured ale with a fresh and sweet aroma. It has a sweet light spicy taste making it a refreshing ale.

The ale is flavoured with coriander an orange peel. Based on the classic witbier, with coriander and orange peel, oats and Icelandic water. This is very good spicy white ale and is unfiltered. It has a lighter spiciness than the classic Belgian White Beer and is an interesting ale from our Northern European neighbour.
 
The brewery is 60 miles south of the Arctic circle. In the fishing port of Akureyri. The water comes from rain and glaciers from Hlidarfjall Mountain passing through lava fields. My 5*
