Interesting! I have no idea what rooibos tea is, but I do get a tea note here. I wonder if the fruit I'm getting is from tea or hops? Dry overall and quite refreshing.

On tap. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of citrus, orange and cracked wheat. Sweet wheat taste with caramel and a lot of citrus.

This beer was quite a nice surprise, since I don’t normally enjoy wheat beers. I also didn’t know what rooibos tea was but it seems to work well with the mild hoppiness of this beer. Pours a slightly hazy, darker orange-amber color with a little lingering fluffy white foamy head and spotty lacing. Smells mainly of malt, a little floral and herbal hoppiness, tea and some faint caramel. Taste follows the nose and again there’s that rooibos tea tannin feel at the back. Smooth, thin, mild mouthfeel with good carbonation. Quite an enjoyable beer and I will have to investigate more brews with this type of tea. Nicely done.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy off white head that left a short head after it died down and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of rooibos tea and caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of caramel malts along with strong notes of rooibos tea, hints of herbal hops and a faint amount of associated sweetness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer does a very good job at showcasing the aromas and flavors of rooibos tea without being overly heavy on the palate.

No idea when this was canned, potential for disaster.

A surprising color, a deep red-hued amber color, with tons of head fighting to take up that four finger coverage. Frothy, quickly dissipating, medium amounts of lace.

Sweet, fruity, malty. The malt is to be expected, as l’d imagine this to be at least 6 months old. No idea what Rooibos tea is but it quite possibly could have saved this beer. A floral quality shines through, a pleasant combination of grapefruit and pomegranate.

Malt hits first, a subtle hop presence, then more of that citrusy grapefruit and pomegranate quality. Honestly it’s really not that bad if not for the weird mouthfeel it’s been left with. Floral, fruity, lightly hoppy, I’m good.

The mouthfeel on this is filling, frothy, and really the one thing taking away from this (potentially) old ass pale wheat. High amount of CO2-filled bubbles that need to fizzle out before you can really even enjoy the beer itself.

Slightly darker than you would expect a pale wheat to look, but I would assume the darker color is from the tea. Aroma is very floral and citrusy. Taste definitely highlights the earth tea and mosaic hops add the right amount of citrus to balance this beer quite well. Am I drinking tea or beer?. Light bitterness at the end, but overall, I have rated this on the style and it is a great example!!

Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a nice looking pale orange color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a decent pace. Some lace speckled the sides of the glass.
The aroma had some orange pulp and zest, a wonderful dose of Roibos tea, some grassiness and a touch of floral character.
The flavor was moderately sweet running through a meshing of those previously noted aromas. Just a touch of zesty orange to enliven the taste a bit. Moderate aftertaste of Roibos tea and orange zest.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation and ABV felt on par. Great finish of the Roibos tea and orange zest.
Overall, absolutely wonderful beer but then again I do drink tea so if you don't like tea, this beer might not be for you.

this one is an instant classic for me, a drinkable beer with wide appeal, but a unique enough beer to be picked out of any lineup. its the essence of marz as a brewery for me, a great testament to the value of innovation even in basic styles, and a beer i wish was regularly available where i live, i would keep this in my house at all times. somewhat of an institution already, this is a really special beer. its a hoppy wheat, pale for sure, almost an ipa, spiked with the distinctly flavored rooibos tea in just the right amount. it has a little copper color to it and some chill haze, and a tall and lasting frothy just off white head, really pretty beer in the glass. aroma is the floral and citrusy tea, a potpourri element to it, and then a nice floral and orangey hop profile on top of a hearty wheat base thats just off dry. i love how much the tea stands out, especially if you are familiar with rooibos, its so unique, and the beer seems to incorporate it so well. the exact right amount of hop bitterness, malt body, and effervescence to bring it all to life, such a cohesive and artistic and genius beer. i want to drink this all the time. i love marz, they seem to fascinate me with every new one i find from them, but this staple of theirs is famous for a reason. really incredible beer right here!

From Can. Very tea kind of fruity flavors and aromas. If you like tea infused beer, this will deliver.
