inedit 1 

With its gold sheriff star and its red bottle-neck ring with letter fonts that look borrowed from a Wanted poster in a Far West town, Inedit Damm’s bad boy looks belies its contents.

Inedit, the beer designed by world-renowned El Bulli-famed Chef Ferran Adrià, sommeliers Ferran Centelles, David Seijas from Barcelona and brewed by Estrella Damm brewmasters, is intended to complement the flavors of modern gastronomy, especially citrus-based sauces and vegetables like artichokes and asparagus which are difficult to pair with wines.

Even though I missed the bitterness of hops I like in a beer, I enjoyed it with foods, whether pedestrian, traditional or modern.

The softly carbonated beer with 4.5% alcohol content is crafted from a blend of barley malt, wheat, hops, coriander, licorice and orange peel, it has a pale gold color and is slightly cloudy in the glass. The aroma is quite unique: opening with a floral spiciness it develops into an intensely aromatic yet creamy and fresh brew with rich notes of yeast and citrus that follows through in the aftertaste.

The packaging  suggests serving it chilled in a white wine glass, filling it only halfway to fully appreciate its intensity and aromatic complexity.

Only recently released in 4-pack 11.2 oz bottles across the country for $9.99, it was created in 2008, as an alternative to wine.
