3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold, with a loose and rapidly fading white head. My first thought on the aroma is that smells very similar to gin, which is no bad thing in my book. There are also some coriander notes apparent. It is properly zesty to start, with orange peel and coriander prominent. This is all very good, but sadly it is at this point that the bizarre addition of licquorice makes itself felt, smothering all other flavour right through to the finish. I have wanted to try this beer since its release, but I must admit it is a bit disappointing. Ferran Adria does some very odd things to food, and he has now done something equally odd to an otherwise quite pleasant witbier.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Spicy wheat aroma with some citric notes. The taste has grainy/lager like notes with some wheat and light spicy notes.

Pretty pleasant to drink, but AMAZING hype on the label, the pamphlet attached to the neck of the bottle, even the shape of the model. Penalized slightly for the hype and for the price. But otherwise an innocuous Belgian white.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head that leaves lacing. Aroma is sweet fruits, citrus and yoghurt candies, together with some soap. Flavor is slightly bitter, somewhat fruity and with quite some artificial lemonjuice. Quite chemical, but not bad.

Not bad, not good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: Nice, but not worth the price. A very delicate, well-made take on a wit that wasn’t quite as good as a real wit. Plus there are way better beers to pair with food. The fact that it is carbonated makes it cut fat. They didn’t need to make a special beer for that.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light to medium golden that became hazier the further into the bottle I went. It had beautiful carbonation and an average, white, head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma was fairly week and contained wheat; moderate dusty yeast; heavy coriander; ;pepper; citrus; and some orange, which became heavy toward the end. The initial flavor was moderately acidic and lightly sweet; while the finish was moderate to rather acidic and slightly bitter. There was wheat, coriander, citrus, orange, a hint of licorice, pepper and yeast. The light to medium body was somewhat dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a thin short lived white head, over a slightly hazy, yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is light malts, primarily cereal, with light citrus....taste is light cereal, bit of orange....mouth feel light, carbonation adds a pleasant spritz. This is a mild Witbier. None of the standard characteristics of the style are missing, none particularly present. It is a pleasant drink, but boring. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6

I really enjoyed this beer. I had their Gluten free beer awhile back and was interested in this one. Pair it with food, that’s why they brewed it. It worked well with my dessert.
