Bavaria cannot be any closer - our beer recipe designed by a Bavarian world champion brewmaster Michael Plank, ingredients from Germany and a touch of our clear blue skies occasionally scattered with white clouds that provide the water to brew this lighter somewhat drier wheat beer, tingling the back of your palate for yet another sip and possibly another glass. This open fermented bottle or cask matured masterpiece is prone to confuse your whereabouts - yes you really are in Namibia enjoying a Bavarian style wheat beer or “Weissbier”.

Not a great weiss. Too sour with a burnt aftertaste. Big white head with huge bubbles.

Scopey (16223) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2016
Tap at Joes Beerhouse, Windhoek. It pours cloudy pale orange with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is sweet, juicy, tangy, green banana, orange, tangerine and clove. The taste is actually not that sweet...crisp, dry, tart, tangerine, orangina, green chalky banana and grain with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Comes across with more tart orange peel instead of sweet banana, which was expected. Not sure if this is meant to be, but it works OK for me.

Tap tasted on Swakopmund August 2013. Large head with sweet taste and aceptable carbonation. A bit light for a german hefeweizen but it was a nice beer in a nice place. Next one please!

Grumbo (4252) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle at The Ale House, Chelmsford. Bronze colour, a little cloudy, with a thin off white head. Aroma is a mix of wheat, fruit and yeast. Sweet and sour taste, rather sharp, and far too highly carbonated. Not great.
