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.

A bad beer... picked up medicinal off flavours and aromas! A definite no no. Might be the yeast, but dont think so. I found it difficult to finish, amd for R59 at The Sheds on Fox... unacceptable

Horrible beer the orange peels used in the brewing process provides a nasty rotten smell of oranges, dont waste your buck, even cheaper bear tastes better

Bottle. This is really disappointing. I don’t eve think it stands up well against the cheap SAB macro lagers that saturate the market in the Southern Africa region. Not worth it.

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 (2464) - 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.

kermis (8524) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy full golden brown with an off white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast, herbs and light orange peel. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Abrakarl (397) - SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2014
Slightly unpleasant aroma. Otherwise a bit under average for a witbier. Not bad but not again. Better gimmick than beer....
