2.8/5  rDev -22.2%

A- pours well with nice head, poor retention it held up for a minute or so. Fair golden appearance very clear. Decent lacing though poor carbonation

S- Nothing noteworthy, slight citrusy floral scent

T- Too mellow, few beer attributes. No hops to speak of, almost cloying honey flavors with some citrus that is difficult to identify (orange on the label.) No malty-ness either. The flavor is very shallow, though I'm attempting to see layers in this drink there are none I can identify

M- Fluffy is the best term I could think of, not sippable but gulpable, This beer slides down easily

D- Split a bottle with a friend and now, 10 minutes later its empty, though if there was one more bottle I don't believe either of us would crack it.

I am hoping that Barcelona's got something more exciting for me to pour, if anyones got something spanish to try I'd be happy to hear about it.

2.8/5  rDev -22.2%

A: no head really on a hazy straw body.

S: subtle spiciness and light malts but overall light on the nose. Corriander and yeast notes as well.

T: very watery. Almost like sweet lemon flavored water. Minimal malts and orange notes as well.

M: low carbonation and light bodied.

Overall: what the heck is this beer. It was so watery almost like spicey lemonade. It was fairly disappointing for the bottle and appearence. Good marketing.

2.83/5  rDev -21.4%

750ml-- best before 03/14 -- tasted at 4C

A: Apple juice yellow hazy; translucent
S: not fresh; simple, wet cardboard, touch of apple juice, winey. I hate to say it but it smells like a cheap lager.
T: light and simple but lacks a crispness and there is NO finish at all. Likeable but not memorable.
M: medium light bodied. carbonation could be higher.
O: an okay beer but my expectations were so much higher. I guess I was just a sucker for the story, the packaging, the website...

This was another beer of theres I got a chance to try as a sample that was interesting but not my overall cup of tea. It was very fruity and sweet wheat style beer. It certainly was something I could never see my self sitting down and drinking very much of at all. Just to sweet and too bland, and over citrusy to be my cup of tea. May be something that some witbier lovers would enjoy but just nothing special to me.

Out of a bottle and into a glass, have not had the pleasure of having this yet. Thx 4 the shot oglmcdgl.

A snazzy looking bottle, Estrella casts a golden glow with a hazy yellow punch. Not the cleanest looking brew, a little hard to see through. A nice pillow of white fluff stood above and retreated, leaving nothing. Smells mostly of pale malt and hay with some aroma hops. Getting some honey in the taste along with a very light sweet malt and apple skins. Some yeasty bread and the like. Feel is on the light side and tame in flavor although it's pretty well balanced, carb is on the low end. Very drinkable and approachable for many people, this is one that I would share with people that are not "big into beer". I hear this is the ultimate pairing beer when it comes to food, I prefer local 1 instead.

2.9/5  rDev -19.4%

Aroma is crisp, yeasty and wheaty with an undertone of lemon and a touch of sweetness. It pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow - not inspiring, but at least the snow-white head is fairly thick and fluffy and leaves decent lacing - an extra half point for that. Flavor is typically wheaty and yeasty with a faint lemon undertone, a teensy on the thin side but still potable. Texture is smooth, a bit watery, barely fizzy. I expected better from the appearance of the bottle, as well as the cost - I lost the slip so I'm not sure how much I spent, but it was not cheap. Don't think I'll be looking for this one again, but I'm glad I gave it a fair shake.

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.

Come into the light?... This is a light-golden colored beer with a nice bit of foam. There’s a light pale Belgian-style aroma to it—some floral esters but not a whole lot. It’s thin-bodied, lightly flavored (do you see the trend here?) with a curious finish. For as much as I’ve seen this around I really didn’t miss much by not trying it until now.

A- Body is a completely transparent golder yellow hue with bubbles seen steadily rising to the top. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy white head which fades to about 1/2 finger and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.

S- Nose is very mild. Grain, wheat, pale malt. Not really much to offer.

T- Taste is much the same. Bready grain. All the way through-no color or complexity to it.

M- Medium to high carbonation and somewhat bready light body.

D- This is a very simple wheat beer. It is certainly no witbier as there are no spices, herbs, or citrus. Just wheat and grain. This beer is not bad, its just bland and very boring. I can't write much more about it because there isn't anything else to it.

3/5  rDev -16.7%

A- Pours a golden champagne color with a white head.

S- A WHISP of spice notes and citrus.

T- Refreshing and clean tasting with hints of coriander and grapefruit, it's basically a wheat beer though. It's nothing overpowering, if anything, it's a little underwhelming. It tastes more like watered down white wine but this beer would be good on a warm summer night.

Food Pairing- The makers of this beer say that this beer is meant for dining and I can see why, it's very light and has low alcohol. I could see this pairing well with some fish and root vegetables.

The brewers bill this as a beer designed specifically to go with food, and I see where they are coming from. This is not a beer you sit and sip by itself (an anti-session beer?). It does have a white wine-like character to it.

Pours cloudy golden with a huge fluffy head. Malty, wheaty aroma, slight citrus and spice. Nice lacing. The flavor is sour wheaty, astringint, with a hint of spice, apricot and citrus. The mouthfeel is thin with a little sourness in the back. White wine like. Light. As it warms, apple notes become quite pronounced.

Bottle stamped 07/11 L190216 poured to tulip glass. The beer pours a golden yellow with a small 1 finger white cap with little retention and little lacing. The aroma is faint but provides a floral light citrus fruitiness flavor. Heavy wheat influence here. Just like the nose the flavor is wheat heavy, too much so, in my opinion. The crisp fruity sweetness is very much subdued. Lighter bodied and decently carbonated. Overall, not much going on here. The little booklet suggests the beer is made to be paired with food. I paired mine with a baked chicken. The beer did nothing for the food nor me. Not sure it's worth close to the asking price. Not bad, not great.

3.05/5  rDev -15.3%

Appearance: light pale gold, cloudy, thin white head.

Smell: very nice at first, but disipates quickly. Initial aroma is muscat grapes.

Taste: light malt and wheat, some coriander, and orange. I found it lacking in the flavor department, I needed more.

Mouthfeel: thin and slick.

Drinkability: refreshing on a hot day, but I would choose one of the many other witbiers first.
