Boutip (6014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium foamy head with light retention. Aroma of Rooibos tea is quite dominant with light unrefined grainy notes also perceptible. Taste is a weird mix between the some unrefined wheat malt notes and some Rooibos tea with a light astringent finish. Body is light with good carbonation. This mix between tea and beer is not the easiest to put together and I must admit that this si not a case were the experiment was successful.

jgb9348 (5808) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Hazy pale golden coloured body with hints of honey and bronze and a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head after a few centimetres taller right after the pour. Aroma of tea (shocker), fruits (again...), light grain, honey, yeast and a good note of herbal and grassy qualities - definitely fitting for this style of beer (herb/spice). Medium-bodied; Assertive and defining qualities of tea, grain and yeast up front with a light hit of sorghum and millet (also african) and a light spatter of sugars. Aftertaste shows some herbs, a little yeast, grain and a definite rooibos (fruit/herbal tea) flavour that permeates. Overall - true to the name of the beer and the style, however, this doesn’t translate to a great beer on all fronts. That said, if you like light blonde ales and also love tea in general or rooibos tea, specifically - you’ll like this beer very much. Nice to try and a good reminder of why I’m going down to the motherland [of humanity] in the first place. I sampled this 355 mL bottle purchased from Marche des Saveurs du Quebec in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 20-September-2014 for CA$2,55 sampled at home in Washington just two days before leaving again for the great country of South Africa, this time bringing not only a wife, but two kids.

SlovakSniper (5264) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Une petite bouteille. Une robe orangée et son anneau de mousse. Un nez drôlement épicé et étrangement aromatisé avec des effluves de fruits qui me donnent du fil à retordre. Je n’arrive pas à mettre le doigt sur quelque chose de précis. C’est sans doute cet aspect de la chose qui la rend plus intéressante. Au goût, une infusion d’aromates qui allongent des fruits et qui s’ouvrent aux flaveurs de gingembre et de canelle. En bouche, le liquide qui est sous alimenté par les bulles et qui présente une densité moyenne et une texture qui frôle la légèreté. En finale, un carrefour où se croise divers épices. Une première et sans aucun doute une dernière.

rodenbach99 (4318) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2012
Style et résumé: Bière blanche au Rooibos.
Comment: Bouteille brune de 341ml. cadeau de Patrick.
Description: Belle bière dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est tout en gingembre et au thé (même si le Rooibos n’est pas du thé). La bouche est tout en épice avec du gingembre. Elle est de moyenne longueur et le corps est mince. Elle est bien faite et rafraichissante. La base de blé est peu présente.
Note: 6/10

cloudy beige pour. Aroma of grass, chai tea, and some slight lemon. Flavor is ALL chai, i’m really enjoying this. There is the chai flavor with a slight bitter/dry finish. A very interesting beer.

Spab (3481) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
341 ml bottle from St. Nicholas Metro. Pours a lightly cloudy golden yellow with modest-sized white head and fairly steady stream of bubbles. Tea is the primary note in the aroma with wheat, flowers and spices. Flavour has perfumey flowers, Rooibos tea, sweet wheat and a little spiciness. Medium body. Not terrible, not great, but certainly odd.
