The highly acclaimed chef/star of El Bulli in Spain has gotten together with Estrella Damm brewery to concoct something new. Inedit. Which means Original in French.
From the New York Times, “It actually starts as two beers, Mr. Adrià said: a straightforward lager and a German-style weissbier that is seasoned with orange peel, coriander and licorice. Because each ferments at a different rate, the beers are not blended until just before bottling in black 750-milliliter wine bottles. The marriage undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, like Champagne. The beer is unfiltered, making it slightly cloudy. It has 4.5 percent alcohol and delicate yet persistent carbonation.”
This may be another one to add to the “must try” list.
