A light straw yellow body with a thick white head. I want it to be a bit more cloudy, but its pretty clear.
The smell actually isnt bad. Like other SA fruit flavored beers, its got an artificial candy sweet blackberry smell. base sweet Wit underneath is more wheat than yeast, but theres still a hint of banana shining through.
Tastes like blackberry candy. Syrupy sweet blackberry hard tack. The yeast just doesnt come out. It finishes clean and sweet, but I want more of something. Blackberries arent normally this sweet, honestly. I think thats the fault. A nice dry yet sweet blackberry flavor with a nice yeasty Wit would be fantastic, but the yeast is just lacking any kind of punch. Its more of a bready yeast than an estery yeast as well.
I like how it finishes tho, nice and clean with the blackberry flavors lingering.
