olliejobbins (728) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Half pint. Pours slightly cloudy light amber with no head. Aroma is really nice. Yeast, a little alcohol, wheaty but maybe a little vinegar. Nice smooth taste. Alcohol is hidden very well. Very smooth.

ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man NYC, 11/24/13

Aroma: The nose has some fruit, plenty of spice, bread/yeast, and wheat
Appearance: This one pours a hazy golden color with a small, lasting off-white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, with some nice balance and plenty of spice
Palate: The body is medium-plus, somewhat heavy and a little sticky, but remains approachable
Overall Impression: I thought this was a really solid one for sure. There’s a lot going on here, and it is a bit of a sipper, but it is certainly not overly heavy. Tasty stuff.

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Strong almost port like flavours with aromas of raisins and spices.

hawthorne00 (2361) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2013
Growler. Gold with a large white head. Aroma of dough, cloves, bananas, vanilla, white pepper, oranges. Sweetness - oranges, candi sugar, dough - gradually giving way to sharper citrus flavours tangy wheat, spices, gentle bitterness. Plenty of yeasty things going on but remains quite nimble on the palate. Complex, restrained, refined.

Hop_Hedonist (229) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
Not my preferred style but... Good estery fruity ale with quite a lot of spice in there - refreshing - interesting for a change of style midway through a session - If this ale was a girl she’d be exotic middle eastern.

ozscouser (8) - seaton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2013 does not count
Draught at The Wheatsheaf Hotel Adelaide: Golden colour, with a great head that retains well. Cinnamon and cloves come through on the palette, and candi sugar at the end. Very close to a wietbier. Got to admire Garrett on this one, he has created a really good beer that is well worth seeking out.

I didn’t expect the clear, pale straw colour, nor the crazy fizzing head which disappeared within seconds. The aroma includes banana, alcohol, spices, raisin and tropical fruit. The palate is more basic, mainly consisting of spice and alcohol. I didn’t love it but that might be as much because it’s not my preferred genre of beer. Squealer from Prince Wine Store Essendon.

Sevenlee (1264) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, wheat, orange, cloves and assorted spices. Taste is medium sweet leading to a heavy finish. Good stuff.

stoutnick (448) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2013
Beautiful spice character on the nose here. Lovely. The flavours are strong on the witbier territory. Creamy on the mouthfeel with a very dry finish. ABV well hidden here. Nice big beer.

Gramoit (351) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2013
Brilliant, Alcohol hidden really well, quite sweet but not too much. Was one the top beers i got to try at Gabs Festival.
