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!

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from Cape Town airport. Hazy gold, big white head. Smells like a wit. Flavours are yeast, orange peel, lemon, spices. Thin bodied, highly carbonated. Not bad, thirst quenching and drinkable.

theSlipperyPen (236) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
With the yeast worked up, the beer pours an opaque yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma is of yeast and light candied malts. In the mouth it’s all sour yeast and that orange rind bitterness coming on at the expense of all other esters. Finishes dry and sour with a rustic (read as dirty) clay taste. Mouth is thin to watery. Carbonation is persistent but overly fizzy. Not a complex or accomplished beer and definitely not well balanced. More like a test batch than a final product really.

egg (76) - USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle from Monty’s Liuor Boutique on 11/16/13. Pours a cloudy golden with a couple of fingers of thick head. Nose is very yeasty, like a wit, fruit esters. Taste is yeast, malted wheat, grass. Quite nice. Some very faint bitterness. Overall pretty refreshing and nice, although not at all worthy of a name like Bone Crusher.

Bottle Cape Town. Pours orange with quick dissapearing light head. Citrus orange peel mixture with hop nose. Interesting not unenjoyable. Carries the abv well.

aleksander9 (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Pours Unfiltered blond with coca cola white head. It goes fizz, And then you are left with no head. Aroma is sour, unhappy Belgian yeast, citrus and wheat. Thin mouth feel with high carbonation. Aftertaste is lingering sour, citrus and tart. Overall: Infected.
