Estrella Damm Inedit (4.8%)

The posh little tag that hangs around the neck of this lovely looking 750ml bottle tells me that this beer was brewed as a collaboration between the brewery and Chef Ferran Adriá.
That’s all very well, but is it any good?
Well, it’s alright.
Inedit is a blended drink made with lager and wheat beer and is infused with coriander and orange peel.
Pouring a slightly dull gold with a typical wheat beer head, the beer smells quite peppery and fresh.
Honey and caramel drift through but quickly disappear, and there’s a soft biscuit that sits in the creamy feeling on your tongue.
The coriander and orange peel are very subtle, but there’s just enough presence from both to add a fresh greenness and a hint of zest.
You get a lemongrass tartness from the hops, but the finish falls short of memorable.
It all goes a bit flat and dull at the end.
I drank it with my Sunday lunch and it went down easily enough, but I definitely won’t be buying it again.
