look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Three fingers of white, fluffy head leaving quality lacing with a ton of carbonation on a bright, straw/golden body.

S - Some sweet spice, citrus, yeast, and graininess are all present.

T - Nice citrus character in the flavour and a good yeasty aspect. I'm pretty surprised by this actually. Good sweet baking spice there and the citrus aspect works well with it.

M - Good amount of carbonation. It isn't particularily strong but keeps things moving. Medium bodied and quite smooth.

D - Very drinkable for the abv. I wasn't expecting much from this so it's a good surprise. A quality wheat beer I could have all night.

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 LucĂ­a'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.

Poured from the 750ml capped bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. A big, lively, foamy white head forms but begins to dissipate almost immediately. Body is a bright golden color with active carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass.
Aroma is sweet, with heavy notes of vanilla and citrus. Lemon, grapefruit, banana, and clove all pop through. Palate is bright and airy up front, with a heavy lemon presence. A sweet vanilla flavor emerges mid-palate and builds all the way through the swallow, along with a good bit of banana flavor. Finish is heavy on the banana and also holds a touch of clove.
Body is light, bright, and airy, very refreshing and thirst-quenching. Although the flavor profile is a bit sweeter than I look for in a witbier, it's still quite pleasant, and the mouthfeel is lovely. A bit pricey, but a very enjoyable beer.

Got a glass of this at Amada restaurant in Philadelphia on Saturday. I'm almost positive it was poured from a bottle and not taken from a tap.

Visually, it resembled the light orange/yellow look of a wit with aromatic notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. When held up to the light, a decent amount of sediment was noticeable and the head was definitely thick and lacey, without being too overpowering.

Its flavors boasted hints of lemon, wheat and banana, which all went strikingly well together. It went down very nicely and the bartender served it at a nice temperature (a bit above room), since most places would serve this a little colder than necessary. Although noted as a witbier, I feel like it more closely resembles a saison.

Carbonation was a bit high, reminding me of a hefeweizen, but if felt great hitting the tongue and it definitely didn't take a lot of work putting a few glasses of it down.

This is a nice surprise from Spain, a place I usually wouldn't expect to find a high quality ale.

Source/Serving: Bottle

Smell: Floral, yeasty, sweet spices, starfruit, a hint of ginger ale.

Taste: Delicate spices, crisp, with a dry but not too bitter character. Remarkably floral with abundant straw graininess and light, tart tropical fruits. Soft, full mouthfeel with a lingering floral/spicy finish. I'm not a big fan of spiced beer but in this case its remarkably well done with a deft hand. Overall, impressively balanced texture/mouthfeel and flavors and a very unique nose and flavor.

Note: As intended I ate this with food and found it to be a remarkable complement to my meal. I think that part of it comes from the fact that its very floral which contrasts to almost any food and refreshes your mind with a new smell and taste. In addition, its crisp dryness works well and requires very little bitterness for palette refreshment. I'd HIGHLY recommend not drinking this beer by itself, it was a really wonderful experience

stumbled upon a taste of this when i gave my BA in crime andrenaline a pickup at the airport
A - hazy golden straw, nice white head left a solid covering
S - lemon citrus with some creamy cereal and light banana
T - like a hefe with lemon, has toasty grains and banana with a pleasant citrus finish
M - creamy smooth yet light, finish bready and a little tangy
D - goes down extremely easy and the flavour mix is very appealing, this would be a great summer sessioner

Poured into a pint glass, this beer is a very hazy, cloudy tan color with a small, thick head. Excellent wit aroma, with a large amount of coriander, and a sharp scent of bitter oranges. The coriander isn't as strong in the taste, but it's present. The most obvious flavor is a sweet, acidic citrusness, with a yeasty hint of honey. Tart and refreshing. The body is odd: it's quite carbonated, yet it feels thin and watery. Otherwise, a well-crafted wit.

Lightly cloudy with a two finger pure white head. Scads of lacing all the way down make for a lovely looking beer. Carbonation is evident and mildly active. Sweet hone in the nose is underscored by pale and wheat malt notes of bread and light twang. Some notes of pepper and coriander as well as a blend of Belgian yeast and faint alcohol. Great taste. Smooth, with a honeyed maltiness that opens up a lemony wheat flavor and light fruits. Pear like sweetness flows into a green apple tartness and a dry crackery finish. Very clean and dry with a light Saaz spiciness. Crisp carbonation lends is still full and velvety. Super drinkable and very refreshing and thirst quenching. A great session beer that is wonderfully drinkable and accessible. A perfect gateway beer that everyone can enjoy.

750 ml. bottle from a friend and poured into a New Belgium globe glass. Pours a hazed lemon golden and somewhat clear in the light. Shows an inch or so of pretty sticky cap and lace.

Aroma leans to the sweet side and especially given yeast notes. Yet keeps it light on all fronts. Yeasty Tripel notes evident at times yet always contained by some wheat.

Taste is along the same lines. An interesting take on a wheat, offers a touch of sourness and a nice background funkiness. Slightly sweet and with a citric fruity character yet with an odd adjunct sense.

Quite different but good, nice yeast character on the aroma. I had limited expectations. They were exceeded easily. i will harvest this yeast, wow....
