B

750ml into a tulip. Pours a hazed dull yellow gold, minor egg shell froth, minor lacing.

Aroma is sweet of spiced honey and overly ripe pear, heavy.

The taste too is sweet yeasty wheaty. Zero bitter, supplanted by a nice crispness.
Coriander is present magnitudes more than in the scent. Light bodied slick mouthfeel.
cheers

750 ml bottle @ Kulminator, Antwerp.

Apparently this was once brewed in commission for El Bulli, formerly one of the best restaurants in the world, but since closed. Beers brewed for top establishments usually make me a little sceptic as they are always engineered from a food pairing point of view, but I'm willing to give anything a shot.

A: Nice cloudy looking wheat beer, pretty much how I expect them to look. Half a finger of a white head that disappears very quickly.

S: Wheat and some sort of herb, I'm guessing coriander.

T: Nice wheat forwardness, not much in the way of bitterness to cut through the sweetness though. A little dull, but very refreshing. Subtle coriander note. Sweetness seems to come from diacethyl.

M: Medium to light carbonation make the mouthfeel of this beer very silky and smooth. Nothing agressive and a nice experience.

O: All in all it's a typical purpose-brewed food pairing beer. A little sweet and clumsy to have just on its own, but it's a damn fine witbier when consumed ice cold, as it befits the style.

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden yellow color with a one-finger white head of foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of coriander, yeast and wheat.

T - Good spicy bite with strong yeastiness and coriander flavors. Nice wheat flavor with a touch of lemon.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty good witbier. Better than other beers from Estrella.

500ml bottle

A- Hazy golden colour with some visible carbonation. Nicely dense, 1 and a half finger white head. Retention and lacing are both pretty nice

S- Soft, sweet wheat malts on the background. Refreshing citric (orange peel) feel upfront, with a bit of spiciness (clove) to make things more lively. Overall very refreshing

T- A soft, sweet, white bread feel as the smell suggested. Then a nice amount of flavours showing up. Some lively spiciness (pepper, coriander), citric notes (lemon, orange), a light but still easily detectable hint of liquorice, maybe a bit of a sugary feel. Nice range of flavours, not feeling like they're perfectly integrated though, just showing up here and there

M- Light body, medium carbonation brings a bit of lively texture on the palate. Overall nicely smooth and easy on the mouth

O- Drinkabilty is great and the beer feels very refreshing. Could use some improvement in blending flavours a bit more. Shows once again that industrial breweries have potential in making good, fairly priced beer, if they only put a little effort. Think of what they could do if they put a lot of effort

500ml bottle. Tulip glass. Enjoyed on jul´12. Pours pale golden in color. Foggy, honey appearance. White, close, creamy crown. Fairly good retention. Citric, subtle coriander, spiced –clove- aromas. Some spiced & wheat hues. Sweet malty upfront, low bitterness. Fizzy sensation, lager-like watery texture. Ligth body, medium to high carbonation. Smooth citric finish. I´ve expected much more from this since marketing campaign. Pronounced vanilla & spices as long as orange/tangerine notes are missed. Refreshing & drinkable as a lemonade.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of orange peels in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of orange peels along with notes of wheat and a bit of sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and refreshing. I would also consider it to be thirst-quenching—unlike most beers in this style—because it doesn’t have flavors of spices.

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 Lucía'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.
