Has anyone else tried this? It's from Estrella Damm. My local pub was carrying bottles and my husband couldn't resist taking one home last night. It's in a champagne-style bottle, and has a label that is very reminiscent of Sapporo - a black field with a gold star in the centre. According to the accompanying booklet (!):

Inedit means "never been done before". In co-operation with the Brewmasters of Estrella Damm, Inedit was crafted by the globally acclaimed chef Ferran Adria, Juli Soler, and sommeliers Ferran Centelles and David Seijas from elBulli restaurant. Inedit was created to pair with the most exquisite and challenging foods. Foods that contain: Citrus and Oils: ie. salads, vinegar based sauces. Bitter notes: ie. asparagus, artichokes, rucula. Oily textures: ie salmon, tuna, fatty cheese.

So, perfect with a vindaloo? We actually had it with a well-dressed salad, and I thought it did pair well. The citrus and coriander notes came through nicely, although I thought no better than a bottle of (much cheaper and more widely available) Hooegarden.

I recall the label saying something about it being the first beer specifically created to pair with food. Much eye-rolling ensued....

Pairing wine with green salad has always given me trouble. This worked, but no better than any other citrus-y wit beer. For anything with fat content, I felt like it did not have the acidity to cut through richness, (this happens to be my beer and food pairing criticism on the whole.)

Good? Yes. A revelation? No. Overpriced? Yeah. Over-hyped? Way.

My thoughts were the same. The only thing I did like about it was that it seemed a little less heavy than the other wheat beers that I have regular access to - Hoegaarden and Erdinger. But yeah, the bottle's nice.

      It seems that the legendary traditional appearance and accoutrements of witches may have actually risen because they were conjuring up beer rather than malign entities from beyond.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.

      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
