UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 On tap at GABS St Kilda and also at Biero. Very nice beer. Aromas of vanilla, dairy, and citrus. Taste is sweet, with only a hint of sourness, and light bitterness. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Pale yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head.

Westkyoto77 (564) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2015
On tap at Rainbow Hotel, Fitzroy. Bright cloudy gold, striking colour. Fine creamy head. Aromas of lemon, honey, spice. Smooth, creamy, medium body. Strong flavours, a little boozy, but very drinkable and quite interesting. A winner.

Even looks refreshing. Hazy light yellow with a nice head. Great on the palate and a spicy lemon aroma.

Nice golden pour from a growler with medium size fluffy head. Lots of coriander, nutmeg, maybe cardamom, wheat grain and a bit of hay in the aroma. Quite sweet taste, with a light honey, spices, a little lemon and a hint of booze. A nice dryness in the finish helps avoid it becoming cloying. Not much bitterness. Medium bodied and a little sticky. Really good wit beer and very refreshing.

anstei (348) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2015
On tap at The Local Taphouse. Pours golden. Citric soapy nose, but quite rich. The aroma also finds itself in the taste, which is enriched by sweet malts and fruity hops. A bit odd at first, but the longer the better.

(Bottle) Clear golden with slight white head. Pleasant and interesting aroma - notes of spice and funk with hints of citrus. Lovely palate - medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Great taste, and unusual - spice and pepper over sweet light maltiness. Refreshing, interesting and very drinkable.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at GABS, the Local Taphouse in Sydney. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a small white head. Aromas of wheat, lemon and coriander. Flavours that stood out were wheat, banana, coriander and a very late arriving tart lemon. Nice thick mouthfeel. Not my favourite style but still tasted good.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to daveA330. Pours with a hazy white-yellow hued body with a white head that slowly fades. Aromas of lemongrass, pepper, pine, windex, tropical fruit, perfume, florals, esters and orange blossom. Flavors of vanilla, a bready malt profile, floral, rose water, orange. Very flowery. Medium bubbles, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, finishes decently dry. A tasty and somewhat different wit.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours hazy gold with a large head. Nose shows heavy coriander and a fair bit of citrus peel too. Underneath is doughy wheat. Almost floral. Very similar flavours, more of the same except with a bit of booze and an assertive bitterness. Too much carbonation, but that’s a small fault.

Had on tap at Murrays Bar in Manly. A good version of a White Ale. A well made beer.
