As a chef I deeply respect the revolutionary and evolutionary work that Ferran Adria and his team at the late El Bulli have produced, beyond the controversy of its closing. A beer to match his diverse and perverse abstract take on food though I am sceptical more than intrigued. Wonderfully packaged in its 75cL bottle. Produced up well in a tulip glass. Pastel yellow gold in colour and misty. The carbonation fine and streaming. The head is dense, creamy and well held; laces well. Aroma of cantaloupe, guava, lemon peel and tight, bitter herbs with a sweet touch of honey and fairy floss. And there it ends. It is candyish and artificially sweet on the palate. Dominant wheat note forgives this giving it a pasty mouthfeel and relatively dry finish. A sour edge of lemon and bitter orange rind in there and a little plastic fills out the rest. Some faults in this one, but being a style I don’t quite take shine to it is forgivable but unfortunately this one is forgettable. Ferran needs to endorse a Lambic or Saison rather than a Wit!!!

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Pours hazy blonde shit with a white thin head. Bad retention and no lacing. Aroma Is a bad interpretation of a belgian wit. Is the perfect mirage of the spanish scene. The best cooker with a long wine menu recomends an industrial and horrible beer Ocanatoledo (23) - SPAIN - OCT 16, 2012
Apoyada de una campaña de marketing exagerada, al final resulta ser una mezcla entre una blanca belga y una Estrella Damm, en la que Adriá apenas pone la firma. Turbia, blanquecina, con una espuma que desaparece, el aroma es correcto aunque escaso y muere en la boca nada más tomarla. Cuerpo demasiado ligero. Un auténtico fracaso como concepto que, sin embargo, funciona muy bien como negocio.

Slightly spicy nose with notes of coriander, fresh herbs, flowers and apricot but very discreet; had to dig real hard to get those aromas.
Appearance is white straw and hazy. Nice rocky head with marvelous white lacing. Perfect head.
Taste is slightly acid with notes of orange zest and lemon. Mouth feel is with herbal and flower accents rapidly taking over leaving a sparkling impression with pepper and coriander notes to finish. Floral hops can be noticed also.
Texture is average with a pretty refreshing finish.
Interesting and mystifying beer. Sort of a mix between a wheat beer and a lager. Tide (3900) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle from Alko. Thick golden color, white head. Sweet taste with wheat, fruits, coriander and toast. Solid body. Sweet, fruity finish. Good brew. floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 13, 2012
Currently available in Australia from BWS at a very cheap (for us) $6 a 750ml bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a large dense pillowy white head that settles to a stable collar. Nose s dominated by fruity aromas (orange peel, lemon) and soft spices reminiscent of a Belgian Wit but I get leafy, floral and grainy elements as well. The taste is sweet with oranges again on the tongue and a low bitterness to the finish. Palate is smooth and slick with a lightish body and lowish carbonation. Sessionable and refreshiing. Would be well matched to seafood dishes. Lillyboo (1) - - OCT 7, 2012 does not count
