Hazy light gold body with good carbonation and just a little bit of airy head that disappears soon. Soft wheat aroma notes, some hops and lemon, quite appetizing. Flavour is heavy hits of coriander and orange. Dry finish. This is well balanced and very drinkable; not a monster beer but would be great for a session on a hot Spanish evening.

750ml bottle. Hazy gold pour with a brief, short white head. Vaguely fruity nose. Light, refreshing body and vigorous carbonation. Lemon, bubblegum, spices, melon and sourdough bread. Short, dry finish. Maybe I’m not enough of a Belgian purist, but I really like almost everything about this witbier. This would be a lovely hot weather thirst quencher, no wonder it’s from Spain! ehhdayton (1188) - USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of coriander, orange and liguorice. Light crisp taste but with little going for it. CH-303 (2291) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Appearance: Orange golden, hazy. Some white head.
Aroma: Fruit and malt, slight hops.
Taste: More fruit and malt, quite smooth.
Info: 750ml bottle, 12/7-2011 JDBaker11058 (2310) - Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Appearance: clear buttery gold, with a white bubbly head and decent lacing. Aroma:wheat, ritz crackers, loads of coriander and yeast and a spritz of orange. Taste: lagery with grains and a little grassy hops, with strong notes of coriander, a bit of champagne, and a good dose of orange peel. Finish: crisp, clean, slightly sweet, with the barest hint of grassy/floral hops. Notes: The nice little booklet from the neck of the bottle said this is intended to be a lager/wheat beer hybrid to complement challenging-to-pair foods. Well, it went perfectly with a nice mustard crusted salmon. Delightfully successful mix of the best qualities of a premium lager and the refreshing citrus, spice and wheat notes of a witbier. Light, crisp and delicious.

Clear, pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of green apple, coriander, wheat, yeast and a hint of citrus. The taste is mildly sweet and yeasty with some spice. It’s a bit of a light tasting witbier. The body is medium with average carbonation. It’s refreshing, and the flavor is definitely good, it’s just really mild. maolucci (9) - Pavia, ITALY - AUG 8, 2011 does not count
I find this beer got a good balance. It’s not a witbier, but that’s a plus for me. It’s also clearly written it’s intended to be a blend of belgian white beer and lager, i think the point of view of Ferran Adrià it’s that a beer shouldn’t overcome the food. A chef’s point of view.

Aroma of coriander, citrus and very light funk. Perhaps a touch of green apple too. Pours yellow with a slight haze and nice white head. No lacing. Coriander appreciated in flavor and even touch of lime. Very slight sourness. Good bit of sweetness. Does not finish particularly dry. Fairly robust carbonation. OK but does not particularly stand out as an exceptional brew. Very nice bottle though. txspartan (1085) - Berchem, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2011
Average white beer at best. Misses the touches of citrus like one would expect from other Belgian white beers. Mad_Ferret (1023) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2011
Clear (except from some chill haze i suppose) golden with a short bleached head leaving some lacings.
Mild yeasty aroma with pale malts, lemon, coriander and some cucumber. And some kind of artificial note.
Taste is "mild belgian" with some oranges, coriander and yeast. But theres also a sweet creamy maltiness with hints of butterscotch and caramel.
Medium body, soft carbonation.
A bit like mixing a lager with a wit. Drinkable but far from the classy stuff they try to make it to be.
