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.

From a bottle, pours a haze straw color with a thin white head that quickly vanished to nothing. Aromas of indistinct citrus and floral. Taste is subtle coriander, orange, and malt. On the back end, there is lemon and a bit of hops. Overall, this is far lighter than I generally go for, but it's really well balanced and executed; would be refreshing on a hot day.

Gold color, straw, slightly hazy. Foam white, medium high and not very durable, leaves traces on the glass.
Malty aroma, a little hop notes, floral, slightly lemon.
Taste: malty, white bread, and again a little lemon.
Saturation average. For what reason is Witbier, I do not know, summing up: for me it is normal lager.

11.2oz bottle into a Spiegelau Wit glass.

A: Pours a dull clear straw with 1/2" loose white head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is poor, retention is above-average.

S: Huge banana notes with traces of clove. Straightforward...dare I say...'on the nose'?

T: Similar to the nose. Very vibrant leap of flavor quickly turns into something much more mundane through the mid palate & into the finish. Finishes surprisingly sharp & sweet.

M: Moderate (& delicate) carb married to a light, slightly slick malty body. Very effective here. Finishes quite dry.

O: This is (to me) an interesting & overall rewarding take on the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle in to a glass

L- Hazy golden color with a foamy head that dissipated slowly
A- Aroma of orange with other citrus flavors mixed in
T- Tasted rather flat with little carbonation. Expected more carbonation
F- Not as good as I thought it was going to be. I wouldn't drink this by itself. Defiantly drink it with some kind of food, such as a steak dinner or something along that line and you will be fine and probably enjoy it.

750ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a hazy straw colour with a white foamy head. Aromas of grains, lemon, yeast , light floral hops, banana, light pepper and coriander. Tastes is on the light side much of the former as well as sweet honey and caramel, citrus and a hint of spice. Aftertaste has a slightly dry fruity feel with a light bitter finish. Overall a very good effort of a blend of lager & wheat style beers.
