Krait Prestige

750 mL corked & caged bottle. Classy looking, dimple-bottomed bottle, $10.99 from Smyrna World of Beverage.
I must admit I was a little disappointed in the small pop on opening – I was expecting more. Into the Tucher weizen glass. Pour has a light, golden hue with a slight cloudiness (chill haze?). Obviously plenty of carbonation and a large, fluffy and impressive head.
Aroma has a little Belgian yeast character (good) and a little bit of skunk (bad).
Taste is definitely vinous. It has a dry, almost white wine like quality about it with grape flavors and a very subtle dry fruit flavor. Very tasty and moreish.
Drinkability is HUGE. I was expecting a higher ABV for this beer, but the manageable 8% makes this a beer you could drink a LOT of, VERY quickly – take care.
I get the feeling that this brew could be used in many different ways. I like it paired with food (chicken and fish are the obvious), and I think I would like it as a potential apperitif.
Very good, worth a try if you’ve not had it.
