Bottle. Tried on the night of the World Cup final and just as disappointing.
Some wheatiness and cloudy. Quite thin and rather boring -just like the final.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big up to Ulric for letting me try this!!
Pours hazy light yellow. Has a small white head.
This is a fresh and light brew. Has citrus, yeast and sweet light malt. Also round and smooth from wheat. Also some apricot in flavor.
Maybe hint a small vanila touch in the back.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours very clear straw yellow. Tall puffy white head. Lite retention and no lace.
S: Aromas of apples and honey. Light citrus.
T: Red apple with a hint of skin. Yeasty for sure with hints of honey, pear, and a touch of spice.
M: Lighter in body smooth with nice carbonation.
D: Not bad, a simple little beer that I probably held onto for a bit too long.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well-balanced taste palate. A light beer with a light bitterness towards a Hoegaarden but with a less bitter aftertaste and a full taste (no water-like aftertaste). This beer taste very well and has a lingering aftertaste of hop.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear yellow with a thin white head showing average retention and lacing. Aroma is somewhat bland (but was sampled after a few gueuzes) with orange peel, coriander and minimal malt. Flavor is also orange peel and coriander with minimal wheat and malt. Could benefit from a touch of tartness. Thin body. No major flaws, but a very average Wit. The little booklet mentions that Inédit means "never done before" well, this is a plain average wit bier done thousands of times before! We wouldn’t hear about this one if it wasn’t from the El Bulli marketing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with some white haze and a medium size foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of coriander and some orange peel notes is somewhat bland. Taste is also an average mix between some orange peel with notes of coriander and light wheat malt. Body is too thin for style with some good carbonation. Makes you wonder why El Bulli decided to get associated with this beer as this is really average overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with tall white head. The aroma is grass, lemon, some compost notes, and a hint of mint. The flavor is fairly clean wheat with hints of lemon and spice. There’s a grainy taste in the background that reminds me of sand. The finish is clean and unassuming. Not bad, but kind of boring.

Thanks to rcasta. Not bad, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It has champagne like characteristics, very bubbly and spicy.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
75 cl bottle, served cold. Yellow coloured with small white and unstable head. Smell: a bit sweet, industrial and cheap. Taste is a little bit different: the components from a belgian white (coriander, orange peel) some sweet side-taste, yeasty a bit industrial. Refreshing beer and easy drinking but I had expected a bit more from that one.
