Product Info

A true Belgian-style witbier (wheat beer), with coriander and citrus aromas and a light, fruity taste and light herbal notes. Bottle conditioned, this beer has a distinctive candied orange nose, a spicy richness and a lingering bitterness.

  • A light, golden witbier
  • Light, frothy head that lingers
  • Edgy and refreshing, with a citrusy nose and spicy notes with a lingering bitterness

Rob Heyns's Tasting Notes:

This is one of my favourite beers of 2013, and a great one for a round up of the Best Of 2013. It’s a great example of a Belgian Wit and has big notes of lemon, sweet orange peel and coriander. It is possibly a big beer to pair well, but my suggestion would have to be crayfish as the light subtle flavours and rich, creamy mouthfeel of the crayfish go well with the citrus and coriander additions. It is such a big beer that it works in well in both summer and winter.

One of the best craft beers in SA!

Item Reviewed: 550ml

This is possibly the best local craft beer I've tried. Definitely one of the best labels! Lovely compliments of a fruity nose and spiciness (coriander) on the palette. Despite this, it's an extremely smooth and drinkable beer too. Impossible to have just one! ;)

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Still worth drinking

Item Reviewed: 550ml

Very spicy, well rounded taste though. Cloudy but not gritty. Not my favourite but still worth drinking.

Not top of my List

I found this to be quite sour on first taste, and then found it reminding me very much of that snack of raw boerewors I always have before a braai. So while I seldom detect all the "notes" others speak of - this time I could taste the "coriander", in fact it is almost overpowering.

I would not recommend this product to a friend.

Darling, it is a BONE CRUSHER!

Item Reviewed: 550ml

I love all of Darling's beers. This one is in particular a nice balanced 'wit'. If you find the taste too overpowering (Like one of the previous reviewers) you should not get into the 'wit'-side of beers. Rather stay with something you tried before and like.

BUT, if you are into a 'wit', this stands up to the best out there.
