750ml bottle - looks classy (as some other Damm bottles). Cloudy yellow body, medium head. Aroma is citric but with some definite hints of barley malt. Taste is quite dry with citric sourness next to a typical pale lager taste from the use of barley. The lager taste somehow trivializes it for me.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 750 ml champagne-like bottle. Pours a hazy medium golden with a sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some lemony accents with a dollop of coriander. Pleasant flavor with some yeasty notes, a bit of lemony sourness, some cake mix sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Slightly above average.

Si tienes un paladar de oro, quizás te compense pagar el pastizal que piden por ’esta’ cerveza de diseño.

Bottle. Golden colour with a good formation of white head. Nice lacework. Aroma is fruity, slightly bittery and moderate malty. Flavour is slightly sweet at the beginning with a final moderate bittery. Traces of citrus, cinnamon and yeast are noticeable. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium.

&50 ml bottle. $4 at Famous Liquors March ’11. The flyer around a neck band says serve in a wine glass. I’ll use my tulip-like IPA glass, then. Pours a very busy, foamy golden beer with a spongy white head. Nose has the usual spicy wit smell (and labels need to be allowed a nicer legal description than "malt beverage brewed with spices"). Taste is on the spice side at first. I may have let the sit a bit too long; even though the malt looks filtered, there may be some autolyzed yeast here. A touch of hop bitterness on the order of a Pilsener. The little flyer, again, says to expect a "fresh yeast" taste, I now see. Other than maybe being too aged by me, it’s pretty good. I’m still halfway through the bottle, but I still don’t see any layer of yeast in the punt of the bottle. Got a good beat, though, I can dance to it.

Bottiglia da 75 cl., lotto 110203. Color giallo intenso molto limpido con schiuma media abbastanza pannosa e di media persistenza. Al naso non offre profumazioni intense si percepiscono solo note maltate. Al palato sempre note maltate di orzo e soprattutto frumento che lascia un retrogusto dolcino anche se chiude con un leggero amaro, praticamente assente la speziatura, comunque beverina.

Got a bottle at caffé noir, braga, Portugal. This is more like a imperial pils than a witbier, I would say... Anyway... Golden and lightly hazy appearance. Medium to thin head. Medium to high carbonation. Thin texture. Low bitterness and low sweetness. Corn, malt, cereal, fruit aroma.

"I’m not sure how I got so lucky to find this beer. Picked it up at Charles Street Liquors in Boston. The bottle was enticing but the reviews weren’t too glorious. Paid $10.99 for this bottle that filled 6 Champagne flutes among friends. My advice is to let it sit for a bit after opening. The flavors became more pronounced after 15 minutes.
Label said ""1/11"" on the side. I’m going to assume that was the manufacture date and not drink by date because I’d be a year too late.
A - Hazy tan color of a very mild wheat beer with bubbles that resemble champagne. The coloring also reminds me of a hazy pinot noir wine. Three finger head that subsides after 5 minutes. The plethora of bubbles that come from bottom to top never really stop.
S - Pine comes through a lot. Maybe even spruce and maple. I’m gonna say this smells like a Butterscotch candy very sweet and mild but earthy.
T - It’s taste is hard to pinpoint but after a few minutes, I’d say the taste was Robitussin or a cough drop. Very medicine like taste. If you like cough syrup, you’d like this.
M - Very dry like champagne or white wine. It’s a solid beer, very little carbonation when you swish it in your mouth and doesn’t stay with you except for a little cough syrup taste.
O - This is a nice solid beer but not something I’d drink often. I can actually see, as the label suggests, pairing this with asparagus and salmon. Fatty fish dishes would go really well with this. I had this with some English butter cheddar and it was a nice pairing but something was missing. This is a sipping beer and at $10.99 a bottle, share it with friends because drinking the whole thing is insane not because it’s high alcohol (it’s not) but it’s a very heavy beer."

You can definitely feel the hand of a genius such as Ferran Adrià behind this...
