500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. LCBO purchase for $3 CDN. Canned July 28, 2018.

Appearance - pours a hazy pale golden color with two fingers of dense white head. The head fizzles off to a half finger of extraordinarily rocky head and lots of retention.

Smell - wheat, hints of orange and coriander, but much more sweet and perfumery than many in the style.

Taste - lots of wheat, some banana, hints of mandarin and coriander. Quite a bit sweeter than most in the style and that makes it sweet and creamy.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, good but light carbonation and super creamy feel. Drinks really easily.

Overall - a pretty decent wit, better than I was expecting from the Spanish brewer, especially this being a Belgian style. Smell and flavor are average but the feel moves this up a notch.

A Spanish Wit? Weird. But hey, it's worth a whirl. Look is okay for the style, but there isn't as much head as I would like to see. Smell is sweet spices, fruity candi and some bubblegum. Flavor is extremely sweet. I can taste the candi strongly and then I do actually get some wheat, which surprises me. Feel is thin and watery. Finish is sweet and wheaty.

I didn't expect much from this beer and it delivered exactly that. A serviceable beer that was worth a try, but I won't revisit.

A 750ml bottle with a BB of April 2019. Purchased recently from Tesco. The label states that this beer is created by the Damm brewery and Ferran Adrià, former chef of El Bulli. Described as a wheat beer brewed with spices.

A: Poured into a tulip (twice). Bottle conditioned. A rich, hazy amber hue with intense carbonation and fine suspended sediment. Yields a huge head of fluffy white foam that lasts for a while before slowly subsiding to a persistent surface layer. Some lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity yeast with hints of esters, earthiness, mild banana, vague bubblegum, faint orange peel, spice, grainy wheat and a touch of breadiness. Understated but pretty good.

T: Tastes of earthy yeast with notes of mild fruity esters, subtle banana, light orange peel, spice, wheat, a touch of bread and faint leafiness. Pretty dry, followed by a very delicate bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with lively carbonation and decent body. Mildly astringent. Aftertaste of earthy yeast, esters, spice, faint banana, vague peel, wheat and a touch of leafiness.

O: A decent stab at a Belgian wit, though not as good as the best examples. Looks fantastic, while the aroma and flavour showcase subtle fruity yeast, mild spice/peel and grainy wheat. Decent body; a tad thin. It's a well-crafted brew, it simply suffers from a lack of depth. A slight amping-up of the flavour is in order. That said, it's refreshing and worth sampling.

Tried while on my tip to Spain, in some random pub...for a Spanish Witbier I probably should have expected too much, but it was ok. Didn't get the aroma that I was looking for from the style, it was a bit weak in flavor and it was over-carbonated. Would probably pass on trying again.

Although tonight I tried this on its own I can only imagine how this would superbly compliment a meal, probably a spicy one. Excellent beer.

Bought from an expat grocery store in Shanghai, China. Poured form the 750mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer is a solid hazy orange color with a very small pure white head with very little retention.

S: Bright citrus notes. More hop forward than expected. Mostly citrus peels but also a slightly floral hop note throughout. Clean.

T: More citrus peel - orange and spices. A hint of ginger and malt in the back. There is also a slight banana bread note.

F: Very carbonated.

O: This beer is much like a typical witbier with much of the same notes. The balance is good and the taste stands up to the style, but nothing really exciting or out of the ordinary. Tis is a typical witbier pretty much, which is somewhat disappointing.

a solid brew here, unconventional in its hoppiness, in fact, far hoppier than i normally associate european beers with being. i dont know why i always thought the damm beers were gluten free, there is no way this is. this has a nice wheaty base, clean and dry, a floral coriander type herbaceousness to it that leads nicely into the hoppy finish, and a citrus character that keeps it light and refreshing along with upbeat carbonation. i think this is really well made, and while its a bit different than what i am used to in the style, i appreciate the liberties it has taken. its super delicate in feel but has a ton of flavor, grain included, which is uncommon and delightful here. it also finishes really clean, almost too quick, refreshing for what it is, and nice with food. we had some spicy and fatty foods with this, seafood to beef, and it really worked on the table in this context. these beers, in my limited experience, seem built to be enjoyed with food, and they are always better when paired instead of on their own. this is underrated.

From a 750ml bottle.
L: Light haze, straw coloured with three fingers of loose, white head. Looks good. Wish the head was a little longer lasting.
S: Lightly spicy, lemon peel & banana.
T: Wheat, yeast, cardamom & lemon. But very, very subdued. Some dryness.
F: Smooth with moderate carbonation but strangely thin. Short finish.
O: Taste and mouthfeel fail to live up to a promising start. Easy drinking. Maybe a bit too easy. Lacks vibrancy. Better than Hoegaarden.

Clear straw colored pour with a white head. Grainy aroma with a hint of lemon. Taste has wheat and light lemon flavors up from. Clove, banana, and coriander flavors come out as the beer warms. Light bodied with a dry finish.
