3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little weighty on the aftertaste for a wheatbeer, the little pamphlet that came with it was probably a bit too much as I was expecting something brighter and more aromatic/flavoursome. Not a bad beer but surely not what it suggests for the price.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy light gold body with good carbonation and just a little bit of airy head that disappears soon. Soft wheat aroma notes, some hops and lemon, quite appetizing. Flavour is heavy hits of coriander and orange. Dry finish. This is well balanced and very drinkable; not a monster beer but would be great for a session on a hot Spanish evening.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Hazy gold pour with a brief, short white head. Vaguely fruity nose. Light, refreshing body and vigorous carbonation. Lemon, bubblegum, spices, melon and sourdough bread. Short, dry finish. Maybe Iím not enough of a Belgian purist, but I really like almost everything about this witbier. This would be a lovely hot weather thirst quencher, no wonder itís from Spain!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear buttery gold, with a white bubbly head and decent lacing. Aroma:wheat, ritz crackers, loads of coriander and yeast and a spritz of orange. Taste: lagery with grains and a little grassy hops, with strong notes of coriander, a bit of champagne, and a good dose of orange peel. Finish: crisp, clean, slightly sweet, with the barest hint of grassy/floral hops. Notes: The nice little booklet from the neck of the bottle said this is intended to be a lager/wheat beer hybrid to complement challenging-to-pair foods. Well, it went perfectly with a nice mustard crusted salmon. Delightfully successful mix of the best qualities of a premium lager and the refreshing citrus, spice and wheat notes of a witbier. Light, crisp and delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of green apple, coriander, wheat, yeast and a hint of citrus. The taste is mildly sweet and yeasty with some spice. Itís a bit of a light tasting witbier. The body is medium with average carbonation. Itís refreshing, and the flavor is definitely good, itís just really mild.

I find this beer got a good balance. Itís not a witbier, but thatís a plus for me. Itís also clearly written itís intended to be a blend of belgian white beer and lager, i think the point of view of Ferran Adriŗ itís that a beer shouldnít overcome the food. A chefís point of view.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of coriander, citrus and very light funk. Perhaps a touch of green apple too. Pours yellow with a slight haze and nice white head. No lacing. Coriander appreciated in flavor and even touch of lime. Very slight sourness. Good bit of sweetness. Does not finish particularly dry. Fairly robust carbonation. OK but does not particularly stand out as an exceptional brew. Very nice bottle though.
