Generous white foamy head has plenty of staying power. The beer has yellow colour with orange and tangerine highlights; it seems to glistin as it catches light in the glass despite a chalky hazy translucence. Ample carbonation, lace minimal despite impressive head.

Nose is citrus, peach, pitted fruit, floral, some spice, orange rind. Taste is very citrus-y, nice balance of fruit with low acidity, flavourful taste, enough hops to make it all work. Body on the thin side. What I really liked about this beer is the refreshing effervescence, clean sweet finish lingers briefly. Not bad at all, likely better in warmer weather.

500 ml bottle from Barcelona. I normally do not drink Estrella, but had to try this, it cost unusually high 2.40 Eur therefore my expectations were rather high.

Pours light hazy pale golden with foamy white head with good retention, leaves excellent patchy Belgian lace. Aroma is spicy citrusy malt with mild yeast and weak perfumy hops.

Taste is spicy and orange and lemon malt, some wheat with dry finish, but I expected flavour to be more pronounced. Mouthfeel is light with average carbonation.

Overall, I have always been convinced that most of Estrella's creations are bad. But if only all of their beers could be this good....

Pours clouded golden with a white head that lasts.

The smell is of orange/lemon with coriander.

The taste is grainy with lemon and orange. Coriander spicing is mild, and comes and goes. Sweet and sour with a spicy-ish, dry finish.

It has a crisp light body. Smooth and refreshing.

A nice wit... Easy enough to drink. A bit pricey at about 10 bucks a bottle, but certainly worth trying at least once!

A ~ pours a pale peach with a half inch of head. Very bright & brilliant when held to the light. Lacing is on point.

S ~ coriander coming through strong with nectarine and well rounded wheat notes. Orange peel buried under dried prairie grass. 

T ~ Citrus peel first off with coriander following through with quite a bit of fresh wheat & candied lemon with a very dry grassy finish. There are scattered notes of white grape, nectarine, peach, & club soda. Orange comes through more & more throughout warming.  

M ~ seltzer like with an interesting acidic feel on the palette. Extremely dry with a lasting finish and well managed cloy. ABV is hidden phenominally well. Natural sweetness throughout. Balance is maintained throughout. Mellow. 
 
D ~ would mos def buy again, I enjoyed this way too much.
A really well done beer that is easily attainable.

Hazy golden hue with a big, white, fluffy head that dissipates into fine lace.

Sweet, malty nose with faint peach aroma. A little spicing from hop presense and coriander. Floral notes. A little melon on the nose as it warms - reminds me of watermelon seeds.

Creamy mouthfeel. Very crisp with fine bubbles - but plenty of them.

Slight tartness on the attack. It's like revisiting an old friend who got a good facelift. Palate is so light it's hard to get anything off it. Getting some of the licorice when look for it - no coriander or orange peel though. Fresh white peach flavors some through. Licorice gets overwhelming as it warms. Cold, I would give the palate a 4.0. Warm, it gets a 3.0.

This is a very easy beer to drink when well-chilled.

Made for enjoying with a meal. I think this is an excellent food beer. I would definitely pair this with a French meal - would go nicely with cream sauces.

I would buy this beer again.

The colour is yellow-orange, the liquid is hazy. The compact finger thick head is off-white. Very little lacing.

The smell got some bitter-sour flavours; pineapples and a touch of wheat tartness make me think of Chinese sweet and sour sauce. Some exotic spicy flavours and citric lemon-orange notes. Fun flavours.

The taste is fruity: Orange squash, spicy coriander, some dry flavours of flour and dough. Lemon juice and spices... The aftertaste is mild with notes of fresh citric fruits, some bitterness and a sweet hint.

The carbonation is medium strong; the large bubbles are quite sharp. The liquid is light to medium.

A very interesting brew that probably will pair very well with a number of flavours and dishes, without being "too much".

The beer itself looks like a standard Witbier, pale gold color, astonishingly clear, with a fluffy white head. It's actually kind of fun to watch the bubbles race to the top. Smells of tangerine and wheat.The flavor is quite complex. Sweet grapes and lots of straw at first, leading to apricots and coriander. Very smooth. A tinge of anise in the finish.

As a witbier, it's very good, but not quite great. Admittedly, I am not enjoying this as suggested; with food.

However, I think the concept is a bit too pretentious for me. Developed by sommeliers and a chef? It should be served in wine glasses and kept in a chilled bucket? Here's how I'm interpreting all this. "Beer isn't as good as classy and refined as wine, so we're going to make one that's a close to a wine as possible, but still technically a beer."
