Bottle from The Savanna South African store at Liverpool St station. Aroma of wheat, yeast, flowers, apricot, peach, orange and coriander. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, and light sour. Light to medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Finishes sweet and sour.

Pours very cloudy straw colour with white head. Yeasty, clove aroma with some light fruit. Coriander comes through nicely. The more I drink the more I'm picking up the orange peel on the nose. Some aromas and flavours that I'm certainly not accustomed to...interesting and enjoyable. I'm a big fan of the brewery and I like this beer.

Bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is peach, dough, spicy yeasts. Taste is wit, dough, spicy yeasts, peach and apricots. Alright.

Belgian wit? Well not what I would have guessed. It’s a refreshing brew after all with some more hops than the Belgian original.

The aroma is full of coriander, orange peel, wheat and banana. The color is beautiful as orange juice with a nice soft white head. The taste is full coriander, orange peel, banana, wheat, yeast, hops, lemon and hay. Nice beer!

Great look, full bodied, lots of flavour similar to a Weiss but with its own character.

Tim Webb (470) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
50cl bottle at Ginja in Cape Town. Well I say, 0.6 to 4.0, there’a a range. How hazy it is depends on how you pour it. On a German pour it is milky. Entitled to be a bit yeasty at that intensity. Nothing bad detected. Appropriately estery in a clove up banana down kind of way. Not the best but far from the worst.

AntonyWilson (459) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 19, 2016
500ml Bottle: Pours a cloudy golden with frothy white head that persists. Lacing. Aromas of orange with some spice. Slightly tart with orange and coriander coming through towards the end. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Low bitterness. Overall a nice refreshing beer.

500-ml bottle that said 5,2% from mariasgreekcafe. crackling foamy head, cloudy light slightly greenish yellow color, wheat nose, wit with wild, fruity notes, creamy, drinkable, the best beer i’d had in the country.

PicklesJar (3) - SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 23, 2016 does not count
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
