COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Scopey (13005) - 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.
