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.

750ml bottle poured into an Estrella Damm Inedit stem glass.

Hazy pale yellow in color with thick frothy white head that withstands with good retention, it gradually sinks to some foamy film covering atop along with elegant ring and several patch of lacing.

In a nose, here comes banana, floral, a hint of bubblegum, clove and coriander spice, light citrus, orange peel, elegant and inviting aroma in overall.

Led by citrus, lemon zest, and wheat snap, clove also coriander spice come in good mixture together with banana ester and slight hop bitterness.

Light body with very crisp, smooth, and lively mouthfeel from active carbonation, very dry finish.

Overall, this brew is very good and zesty yet high drinkability and easy to drink. I had it perfect match with sausage.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 12/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy rings of lacing cling down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very nice witbier style! All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Great lacing on the beer. Copious amounts of fine carbonation.

Aroma: Citrus, apple juice, cilantro, herbaceous and floral.

Taste doesn't match the forward nose: tame. Watery and light, high amounts of carbonation. Very apple juice forward, but rather dry.

Overall, alone the beer is a disappointment; however, with food it pairs nice. Not overly aggressive or over-powering, but then again, that is its downfall. Had this with some various fish dishes at Posh restaurant, which worked great. It gets a 78/100.

What does it say about someone who keeps buying a beer that is over-priced ?
Maybe, I just don't get it.
First time I drank this, I thought it was more like an expensive lager, albeit hazy.
Second time I drank it, I couldn't understand how this wit beer could go with the food of its creator's world class restaurant.
Third time, I figured out that the minor spicing (coriander and orange ) actually reflected the food of northern Spain.
If you like indigenous beers that don't fit our normal categories, try this.
Once.

This is listed on the "1001" and I just make the argument that it should not be.
