The latest beer-nerd beer to show up at my friendly local liquor store is Estrella Damm’s Inedit, a Spanish wit beer infused with spices and apparently designed to be paired with food. Its flavour and mouth feel are something of a cross between Hoegaarden and a Trappist abbey ale, only substantially less forceful. Its aftertaste is very faint and probably spicy, and lingers for longer than I can be arsed to pay attention but doesn’t interfere with anything else you might be doing. Yes, it’s kind of cloudy, but not so cloudy as to intimidate a habitual lager drinker.
It’s not awful beer for the price I paid, and I don’t feel cheated, but I’m probably not going to buy it again. The enthusiastically sophisticated marketing campaign, dark wine-like bottle, and general sense of self-importance with which this beer is presented to we drinkers is pretty amusing in contrast to Inedit‘s ordinariness, but it’s decent enough beer that I don’t feel like mocking them. Much.
