Cape Brewing Company Krystal Weiss

4.5 stars from 4 reviews - Write your review

Crisp and clean, the Krystal Weiss is a local German-style beer. Clear-filtered with a pleasant fruitiness and light carbonation, this weiss beer has a well-balanced flavour with moderate acidity on the finish.

  • Light, golden weiss beer
  • Frothy, white head that dissipates quickly
  • Notes of grapefruit and lemon, with pleasant fruitiness

Rob Heyns' Tasting Notes:

November 2014 - Weizen are more commonly consumed Mit-Heffe, which means with yeast or unfiltered so as to maintain maximum flavour. The Krystal is thus meant to be the cleaner, lighter, more refreshing weizen style. Krystal Weiss is most often served in Bavaria with lemon. In SA these days we have access to lemony hops from the States and this beer has hints of lemon in it already due to the use of these hop styles.

Inspired by the classic crisp and bitter pilsners of Germany, the Australian Brewery Pilsner takes the palest Australian malts and interweaves the bite and aroma of new world hops. Enjoy a classic German style pilsner with a twist; the spicy NZ and citrus American hops generate an enticing aroma and a crisp peppery bitterness that balances a rounded malt profile.

  • German style pilsner with a refreshing twist
  • Pale Australian malts
  • Spicy and citrus hops
  • Peppery bitterness

Nine Inch Ale is light mahogany in colour with a deliciously distinctive malt flavour. Its hop notes are characteristically spicy and you’ll experience pleasant hints of citrus as it goes down. When it comes to expert brewing, Nine Inch Ale certainly doesn’t disappoint and, like all Redrock beers, it’s cold filtered to ensure fuller flavour and refreshing crispness.

  • Quality rich tones are crafted from the best Belgian crystal malts
  • Slightly fuller body and well-rounded aromatic finish is created using traditional malts
  • The distinctive aroma is formulated with the use of the Simcoe Hop from Oregon, USA
