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.

A Spanish beer? Expectations are not high, but might as well give it a try. Classy bottle and not too pricey ($9ish for 750ml).

Hazy golden pour with a good, lasting white head. Smells of spices and grass with an herbal, medicinal quality. Not bad, not great.

The taste is rather light with some wheat notes to soften the flavor and some herbal notes against a simple, lackluster body. Light hop bite.

Watery mouthfeel that could really use a kick from some decent carbonation or else a more interesting, more complex body. As is, lacking, but there is some promise too.

Of the Spanish beers I have had, this is probably the best. Then again, this is probably the only craft Spanish beer I've had. Fun to try though...and, if in Spain, and if not in the mood for wine, on a hot summer day, I could see reaching for this.

Edit: Oh...licorice...that's the flavor on the back of the tongue that I couldn't place. Interesting. Unique twist.

This witbier is fairly clear bodied and the carbonation is pretty good. The head is white and extremely bubbly and thins out really quickly. The aroma is pretty good, wheat and mild malts smells come through, light grasses, lemon zest and not much else. Its slightly spicy you can start to taste some other spices, coriander, mild hops start to come in as you swallow, but the taste is rather lacking, I wish the spices were a bit more evident. It is crisp on the tongue; and remains light and refreshing. This one isn’t bad for the style but I would expect more from a chef.

75cl bottle. Inedit is not a traditional witbier; it's actually blended with a lager. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a substantial white cap that recedes to leave very nice lacing. Huge bouquet of coriander and orange. Tangy wheat in the background; quite floral. Heavily spiced taste, with plenty of coriander and orange peel again. Citric, yet quite sweet right up to the finish. Light-medium body. Decent, but slightly overspiced.

Got this one as a gift for hosting a Chistmas eve dinner party.

Quite an elegant bottle. I've never heard of it and was quite interested to try it. Paired it with my leftover Christmas dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, and dressing.

Dull yellow, cloudy color. Some decent lacing but not much head to speak of.

Fairly mellow aroma. Yeasty, bready smell with hints of citrus, maybe some green apple as well.

Coriander and citrus are evident on the first sip, but aren't very strong. Hops take a back seat on this one. Pretty smooth mouthfeel and a very clean finish. Overall, a mild tasting beer that was certainly drinkable...just a bit boring. This one would be best served on a hot summer day with a barbeque than during the winter months.
