Estrella Damm Inedit, a brewing collab with Ferran Adria of El Bulli fame.
From what I read online people were disappointed by this beer. I don’t think they read the label, because it was made to pair with delicate foods like scallops. It wasn’t meant to be a complete gastronomic extravaganza on its own. If you bought this and thought you were getting a cheap ticket to El Bulli you have just manufactured your own disappointment.
Was the beer one of my favourites of all time? No. But it was quite nice to drink and it excited the hell out of many of my friends who are curious but nowhere close to what I would call beer nerds.
This beer made curious and tentative beer explorers excited. It would, in fact, be a great beer to pair with a delicate and subtle food like a well-cooked scallop. High five Ferran.
