I am not a beer person and certainly not a beer expert but this INEDIT brew gets my nod.
My makan kaki Andrew introduced this beer to me during one of the Jumping Table dinners. When he brought this beer over to me in a white wine glass, I was like "Huh? They don't have proper beer glasses in the restaurant?" and he explained that the INEDIT beer was specially crafted to accompany food. It offers a similarly food-friendly character to wine and therefore best to be served in wine glasses. I was impressed with his knowledge and could not wait to taste this special beer.
I took a sip and liked it immediately. It had beautiful fruity floral characters with a sensation of fresh yeast and sweet spices. I thought in some ways the INEDIT is similar to Hoegaarden, it has a thin mouthfeel, creamy and long finish. A wonderfully refreshing beer.
Jointly created by revered Spanish beer giant Estrella Damm, Legendary chef Ferran Adrià and his team of sommeliers at the famous elBulli restaurant, Estrella Damm Inedit was designed specifically to accompany and compliment food. Born from a conviction that beer could be paired with top quality cuisine, INEDIT has revolutionised common perception, and is completely unique in concept.
According to the official website, with its elegant and refined bubbles, this beer is designed to take acid, sweet and sour by the hand. The symphony of flavours in each dish is different, but there is a common thread capable of unifying them all, due to a sense of continuity meaning there is no need to switch drinks. Very interesting indeed.
I usually pick up wine bottles from liquor shops with the labels I recognize or buy bottles which have attractive or appealing label and bottle design. So, besides the taste and the unique concept, I love the INEDIT beer for the classy label and bottle design. The design is tall, black and handsome, with a gold star and red sleeve. Simple and elegant.
Like I said earlier, I am no beer expert and many real experts out there might have different opinions about this beer and its pricing. But I really enjoy my food with this very refreshing and elegant beer. A gastronomic beer, if I may.
I would love to share this with my friends and I recommend you to try it too.
