.5 L bottle directly from Barcelona. Appearance is great, small creamy, frothy white excellent lacing head with short life. Body hue orange yellow reminds me of blue moon. Smells like Belgian yeast, banana and orange with a spice I canít put my finger on, probably because Iím smelling the yeastyness. Flavor is nothing special. Maybe I donít have a pallet for the Belgian yeast beers, but it is very light and little hops finish, a smooth and carbonation tinge on the tongue finish. Light body finish, watery, lively carbonation very smooth finish. Yeast sediment on bottom of bottle, not a bad beer, expecting more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rather dissappointing, considering that itís announced as one of the finest beers in spain, created by Ferran Adria. Soft aroma, with very distinct traces of wheat, and some citrus hops. Once in palate, the citrus taste becomes closer to lemon peel and some spices, but itís still very similar to a hefe weizen. Their reccomendation is to drink it cold, but if you do, you lose all this notes, so itís contradictory. In their web site they talk about the complexity of aromas and flavors, but I coulnít find them. Also, the alcohol level is really low for a beer thatís supposed to be that complex. On the other hand, If you consider that Damm brewery is a macro lager producer, this is a great bear, but in a very different category.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Huge, dense yellowish head over fully hazy apricot-coloured beer. Coriander≥ and marzipan, cookies, ad nauseam. Sweet, marzipan and of course coirander, getting some citrus, with sweet-soft gingerbread. But horror, each new sip gives a whiff of chlorine!! Light, slightly velvety texture, wheat slickness. OK, I didnít sample it accompanying an espuma, but I still refuse to think that this is the thing to convert winedrinkers to gastronomic beeradventures. Iím glad El Bulli has taken this stance, but the result is... dubious.

Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. Light fruity aroma along with some yeast. Tart citrus flavor. Finished a bit thin. Not a bad beer, but not worthy of the hefty price tag.

BottleÖ Lightly hazed yellow ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Fantastic retention. Yeasty, grainy aroma with a note of warm perspiration. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, bready, grainy flavor. Iím not picking up any spices or fruit peels. Crisp, refreshing finish.
