CBC Introduces the latest addition to their Brewmaster’s Reserve Range:

The Mandarina Weiss

 

It’s a new year with fresh opportunities and, for most of us, time to get cracking on those new year goals. Top of the list for every craft beer lover should be toasting to 2018 with the Cape Brewing Company’s (CBC’s) summer-inspired Mandarina Weiss.

The CBC Mandarina Weiss is released under CBC’s Brewmaster’s Reserve and is a much-loved flavoursome beer that draws deep respect from die-hard CBC fans.

The unfiltered 340ml bottled craft beer has all the flavours one would expect from a traditional Hefeweizen (a classic wheat beer). The Mandarina Weiss is slightly less intense in taste compared to the Amber Weiss or the Red Weiss, two other favoured CBC craft beers crafted by CBC master brewer, Wolfgang Koedel, at the state of the art CBC brewery.

Craft brewers and hops geeks would be interested to know that the Mandarina Bavaria Hop originated in Hüll Germany, and was released to the global craft beer community in 2012. The name, “Mandarina,” is derived from the beer’s fruity and citrusy Mandarin Orange flavour. This hop is the daughter of the most widely used Cascade hop grown in Germany. The unique hop cone is appreciated for both its citrus flavour and aroma and imparts its citrusy sweet notes especially when used for dry hopping.

The Mandarina Weiss is available at select liquor stores in the Western Cape and Gauteng areas, with a recommended retail price of R34.99 per bottle.
