Launched in December (2015), the Brouer Broers' first commercial beer is the Buffelsfontein Lewer-Olie (Liver Oil) a beer with its heart in Pretoria and is Afrikaans to the bones. This Witbier is not your average, easy drinking "white beer", there are strong banana flavours with a hint of clove. Buffelsfontein Lewer-Olie has a lingering aftertaste that those with a love for more traditional Witbier's might find overpowering. Indeed this is a staunch Witbier and if you like 'em strong, you'll love this one.
There was much debate at CraftNation HQ about this beer. While the IPA lovers appreciated the stronger flavours, our team of Weissbier appreciators were on the fence about it. This is certainly not a "soft beer" and is as South African as the label wrapped around the bottle.
