Monday Brew Review – Camelthorn Brewery’s Bokbeer

Namibian beer, eh? Why not…Camelthorn Brewing Bokbeer glass and bottle

  • Venue: BrewSmith HQ, via McCoppins, Richmond 
  • Cameltorn Brewery’s Website – Oddly, there’s no mention of this beer
  • Price: $8.99
  • ABV: 6%
  • Ideal time and place: Hiding from your parents and drinking behind the shed.
  • Goes great with: Nandos? Or something spicy.

Two Best Things About This Beer:

  • Very bold – dark malts and sourness
  • Has a surprising amount of body

Two Weaknesses:

  • It’s way too sour and explosively carbonated.
  • No flavour from the yeast. That’s what German style dark wheat beers are supposed to be all about. I don’t get it…what happened here?

Yes it’s bold (it blows up in your face), yes it’s sour, but it’s not a nice beer. It reminds me of the one and only homebrew I had to pour out. Bittersweet, and not quite thought through.

No thumbs up for this one.
