I used to drink water right out of the streams in the very remote islands in Alaska and it is simply pure and cleanest water ever! Sadly, people are right, you don't taste anything but just pure icy freshness. Now, I left the island after about 1.5 years, I tasted water after getting off the plane at Seatac airport in Seattle and I could taste all kinds of bitter chemicals. so there are smitten amount of chemical taste in our fountain drinking water but almost unnoticeable.
PURE water is a tasteless, odorless liquid; it stimulates neither your sense of taste nor your sense of smell. Consequently the "taste" of PURE water is the definition of flavorlessness. See bruceyung70's answer above. Water which is not PURE will have a flavor which depends on the nature and amount of impurities.
