look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a pint glass

A- white foamy head which quickly dissipates, light amber color, slightly cloudy.

S- Odd buttery aroma with slight citrus and hop notes, some spice in the back round, almost anise... Hard to pin down.

T- Light... TOO light and quite sweet. Hints of orange peel bitterness come through with a slight spice kick.

M- Feels almost flat in the mouth, actually, watery is a better way of putting it. Odd as the head was impressive before it faded.

High praise for the concept, but the execution leaves A LOT to be desired. This beer would rock in an imperial version but as it is, it's like that Eric Idle comment on American beer (something about a canoe...). I wanted to love this beer and after reading the mini booklet that came with the bottle, I was expecting so much more

75cL curvy wine bottle, packaged in a fancy black box. Despite the rediculous and pretentious packaging I couldn't pass up a $12 bottle of what appeared to be Belgian wit from *Spain* of all places. As depicted on the box I served it in a wine glass. Beer is straw yellow in color and formed a nice white head which quickly sank. Aroma is initially yeasty, but underneath there's a sweetness, like apple juice (or adjunct lager...).

Flavor is pretty freaking marginal. I can appreciate cold and refreshing, but I don't need "The World's Most Awarded Chef" (whoever that is) to serve me a glass of ice water. Digging a little deeper, there is a hint of ginger and coriander. The flavor is neither sweet nor dry -- I think I would have preferred a little bit drier. Minus points because the package is deceiving: the flavor is anything but "high intensity" or "aromatic". It doesn't have "long aftertaste" because it hardly has any taste at all. Highly drinkable, but bland. The wheat flavor is not highlighted at all, rather it is used only as a mild vehicle for more mild flavors.

I assume the name is a pun on "Damn, I need it". Maybe not. But minus points either way. If this is Damm's best beer I don't feel much need to explore more.
