Bottle@Home. Orange and coriander aroma. Hazy, yellow colour, white head, good lace. Great presentation BTW with the posh bottle, label and booklet. Sweet, light bitter, coriander, wheat, hint of citrus. Oily with a thin finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by citric fruit, specially oranges, there is also some spices, wheat and a hint of grain. Flavor is sweet malty, oranges, slightly citric bitter, yeast and coriander. Medium body, very lively carbonation and sweet & bitter impression. Surprisingly nice for this brewery, quite refreshing for a while, but then a bit boring after a few glasses.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A mixture of flavours occur in this beer. Malty flavours, citrusflavours(yuzu?) yeast especially in the depot. When you taste the beer without food it’s rather dull. But in the combination of different flavours it seems to blend in very well. Mexican dishes as well as raw fish. The carbonation is like a prosecco frizante, so lightly bubbly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a slightly hazy, golden-orange, yellowish body, with a minimal white head. Orange-dominated nose with a herbal touch. Hops and coriander too, and an impression that it will be sweet in the mouth. Orange flavor with some orange peel bitterness, coriander, a touch of wheat, and some sugars. Well-carbonated, medium-bodied and a bit sweetish. Oranges, some wheat and a little bitterness in the finish. A bit on the sweet side, but a refreshing beer. (090312)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The first beer I try and I say: whooo what the h. is this... It’s got some fruit flavor, berrie-like thou I don’t know what they use. a little bit more viscous than the regular Damm, fresh aromas gotten from every buble that would come out. Golden color with cristal apareance with a white and smelly head. Not easy to find even in Barcelona.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle purchased at Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Aroma has lots of spicy pepper, coriander, lemon, some bitter orange peels. Moderately hazy golden body with a decent white head--lacing is a little weak. Starts a little spritzy and peppery. Then it has a little biscuit sweetness in the middle. Then...um...tastes like water to finish. Lacks any sort of bitterness, hops, spice, any sort of kick that makes me yearn for another sip. This has a nice aroma, but the flavor doesn’t parallel it. A bit of a rip off. I figured it would be, given all the bullshit on the label about how this is the first beer ever brewed specifically to be paired with food...yadda...they then fail to mention what kind of food this beer would pair well with. I can tell you that this would pair very well with saltine crackers, and that’s about it.
