3.15/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

Quite boring, to be honest. Was expecting something a little more exciting.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of adjunct, slight pale malt, Euro yeast, hint of floral hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of citrus (orange). Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, pale malt, Euro yeast, citrus hops, coriander, hint of sweet malt, and slight adjunct. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, blend, and body. The adjunct flavors and aromas are a derogation, but otherwise a better than average Witbier.

I have to admit that I really didn't expect much. Having tried other beers from this brewery, I had low expectations. This brew, though, is flavorful and enjoyable. The aroma has a nice mix of malt, wheat twang, spice, and a little citrus underneath. Light in body, spritzy, and just a little sweet. Nice.

An interesting appetizer beer; I hear different opinions over whether this actually is a witbier or not but it certainly is spiced like one. The distinguishing factor between this beer and other witbier would be the intensity of the flavour. The Estrella Damm is INCREDIBLY light in flavour, which at first is kind of nice if that's what you were going for but after a while the beer becomes slightly boring. There's no real depth to the flavour given its lightness and should definitely be a considered a beer to share, so as not to be taken aback by this factor.

Sweet, reminiscent of honey yet surprisingly crisp and refreshing. The real star of this beer is its sparkling mouth feel. With an unremarkable hazy yellow color and a very slight malt aroma, it's the light sweet flavor and tickle of the tongue that makes this beer so drinkable.

This beer has an interesting look to it as it has a greenish color mixed with yellow, nice and hazy looking also. It has a citrus flavor which was a pleasant surprise. Full flavor mouthful while still being light enough to drink all night.

750 ml bottle at the Spanish restaurant, Columbia in Ybor City (Tampa).
This is an easy drinking wheat beer with nice flavors of light orange and coriander. Light bodied that gives a smooth body. Not overly complex but refreshing and smooth.
