2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light hay-colored beer with a white head that recedes to "soap lines." A sour aroma with banana and a citrus/lemon hint in the background. The taste is fairly sweet with very little bitterness. Light bodied, thin texture. Fairly fizzy.
Overall, a refreshing light beer.
16 cl taster at Capital Craft in Pretoria. This I liked. Spiced to the eyeballs, chewing tobacco, galangal, a bit of ginger even, sweet and yet still acceptable on a hot summer’s day. The brewery may be in danger of missing the boat in the whole new craft beer scene but were it to start building on a classic like this they would give a lot of the newbies a good run.

500ml Plastic bottle: Pours a cloudy straw with a small white head. Aromas of yeast and slight cloves. Tastes quite malty, slight banana and yeastiness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall not too exciting, however, not too bad either. ChewyBeer (443) - SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 6, 2015
Pours cloudy with good head. Slight clove nose. Medium mouthfeel. Good clove and banana balance though a bit tart on the tongue. Good drinking lordofpotplants (5) - SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 20, 2014 does not count
Great weiss beer for a local SA beer. Unfortunately only available in a plastic bottle. Does not keep well WhoU (129) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 20, 2014

Cloudy straw a big billowy head. A little sweaty yeast character, balancing wheaty tartness. For a non-German wheat it has character and style, if a little unorthodox.
