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

Tim Webb (426) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
50cl bottle at Ginja in Cape Town. Well I say, 0.6 to 4.0, therea 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.

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.

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

Horrible beer the orange peels used in the brewing process provides a nasty rotten smell of oranges, dont waste your buck, even cheaper bear tastes better

Bottle. This is really disappointing. I dont eve think it stands up well against the cheap SAB macro lagers that saturate the market in the Southern Africa region. Not worth it.

Blanche un peu dcevante, car trs peu de caractre. Lapparence est ok, mais on retrouve peu les saveurs habituelles dune blanche (banane, coriandre...). Probablement conu pour tre bue lt plutt que lhiver vu le climat chaud de lAfrique du Sud.

Pours slightly cloudy golden with slight head. Citrus dominated fresh nose. Low carbonation medium mouthfeel. Taste mainly citrus with idea lying malt. Balanced bitterness. Smooth. Tiny hint of sourness. Refreshing and good drinking

Bottle bought on the Mozambique-South African border. A highly successful wheat beer and it was duly enjoyed on a Maputo terrace overlooking the city! Quite strong wheat aromas, low carbonation, long-lasting sweetness and appealing fruityness. Good!
