Inspired by the spotted Hyeana. A misunderstood creature. A bottle conditioned wit beer with hints of coriander and orange peel. Naturally brewed with wheat from the Darling region.

Blanche un peu décevante, car très peu de caractère. L’apparence est ok, mais on retrouve peu les saveurs habituelles d’une blanche (banane, coriandre...). Probablement conçu pour être bue l’été plutôt que l’hiver vu le climat chaud de l’Afrique du Sud.

Pours slightly cloudy golden with slight head. Citrus dominated fresh nose. Low carbonation medium mouthfeel. Taste mainly citrus with idea lying malt. Balanced bitterness. Smooth. Tiny hint of sourness. Refreshing and good drinking

Bottle bought on the Mozambique-South African border. A highly successful wheat beer and it was duly enjoyed on a Maputo terrace overlooking the city! Quite strong wheat aromas, low carbonation, long-lasting sweetness and appealing fruityness. Good!

Holmen2 (2018) - NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
Shared bottle in Durban 16.03.15, with OEN and RS. Cloudy yellow. Small white head. Aroma of banana and citrus. Similar taste and aftertaste. Lots of citrus sourness. Refreshing.

Abrakarl (391) - SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2014
Slightly unpleasant aroma. Otherwise a bit under average for a witbier. Not bad but not again. Better gimmick than beer....

Reimer96 (1592) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Foamed up like crazy upon the first Pour... Pours a hazy golden yellow with a dense frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, spicy coriander, orange peel, orange zest and soap. Taste is orange zest, wheat, coriander and light soap. Flavor is completely amiss on the finish and just turns too thin. Seems like a macro version of a wit. Glad to see alot of locals love it though as you gotta start somewhere on the search to good beer. Keep up the good work gents!
