Inedit by elBulli

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * Other spirits

First of all, I’m not a beer connoisseur and I’m not planning to review beer on a regular basis. But I’m a gastronome with a few links to Spain, so whenever Ferran Adrià’s elBulli develops something new, I’m in the front row to try it. Moreover, this beer pretends to have a uniquely crafted character, so there are some parallels with whisky.

Inedit - Estrella DammThe Inedit beer was developed by elBulli and Spanish beer brewer Estrella Damm as the optimal beer to accompany food. As such it is a light, hazy “Celis white beer” served in a white wine glass and presented in a great 75cl design bottle.

 

Estrella Damm Inedit (4,8%, OB 2009)

Nose: very aromatic and quite fragrant for a beer. Huge notes of coriander seeds with layers of orange, tangerine and lemon. Malty with lots of added aromas, so it seems. Mouth: mild and fresh, very summery with a slight fizziness. A little flowery. Oranges again. Light peach. Finish: light spices with hints of liquorice.

Inedit is a clean beer with a nose that’s more interesting than the slightly boring palate. Good but nothing unique if you have access to a zillion beers here in Belgium. Indeed better with food where the light taste doesn’t mask the food flavours.
Around € 10 at restaurants.

    Es una excelente cerveza para comer. Muy floral y suave que abre el apetito. En un supermercado el precio es de unos 5 €.

    Es verdad, la compré en El Corte Inglés por unos 6 euros. En realidad no es nada nuevo, en Bélgica tenemos cervezas muy parecidas por mucho tiempo ya.
