A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of orange peels in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of orange peels along with notes of wheat and a bit of sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and refreshing. I would also consider it to be thirst-quenching—unlike most beers in this style—because it doesn’t have flavors of spices.

I enjoyed this belgian style white beer very much. I think Estrella just puts out quality products. Anyway Estrella is a quality product. I love love it. I chose this beer over Guinness for the Spain v Ireland Euro Cup soccer match much to the anger of my Irish brethren. But I go with my pick who is way favored to win the cup with the pick of the beers.

I recommend Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucía's cd Friday Night cd for some wonderful guitar music that oozes out of the rich Spanish guitar tradition to blend with this wonderful Spanish beer.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

A: Pale yellow color, hazy. Pure white head with good volume but poor retention and lacing.

S: The usual, lemon juice, green apples, some pepper/cinnamon/cloves. Not very fragrant.

T: Again, lemon juice and green apples are there, stronger than expected too. Again with the spices: pepper, cinnamon and cloves. The weird thing is that there is a kind of tea like taste in this beer which makes the whole thing reminiscent of iced tea. Gotta be very refreshing during the summer.

M: Very light and watery. No fluffyness, no smoothness. Wrong yeast I expect.

O: This is an okay beer. Nothing out of the ordinary which makes me wonder why the El Bulli chef which is known for his experimental food would put his name on such a beer that plays it THAT safe without any form of innovation.

Large Black Bottle

A: Poured into my Atlas Good Luck jar. Straw-yellow slightly honeyed appearance. The slightest of haze that gives it a more sunny look. Three finger head that dwindles down to a nice sheen. Decent lacing.

S: The coriander and clove hints overpower the bubble gum banana. Candy sugar and bits of floral hops here and there. Nice sweet wheattiness.

T: Floral spicy flavor that balance the sweetness pretty well. An almost honeycomb after taste. A good bier!

M: On the light side, but very good and refreshing for the flavors here. A nice creamy carbonation feel.

O: I'm glad I gave this a try. I do not think I've had very many Biers from Spain, but this is very nice. I want to try more.

A: Pours a pale golden liquid into the glass. The head is about two fingers high and very white. It has a typical witbier look with yeast floating around.

S: Belgian yeast. Oranges and coriander. Maybe some gooseberries also.

T: Wheat of course. Belgian yeast, oranges and coriander. Very balanced in taste.

M: Feels very light in the body. The carbonation is surprisingly strong and it leaves a tickling on the tongue long after a sip.

O: A witbier that pairs very well together with fish soup (which I had at the time of testing). All in all an overall witbier.

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.
