2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
[On-tap at Elmars] Pours very hazy gold with a head that consists of just a white ring. Aroma is very weak--mostly malt, but very light fruitiness when it warmed. Taste is also very dominantly malt, with just a little banana and lemon. There actually is a fairly strong herbal quality in there as well that seemed a bit out of place. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, slightly chalky, dry finish that lasts a long time (the taste is still lingering and it has been over an hour since I finished it). I love a good hefe, but good hefe this is not. I mean it isn’t offensively bad, but it definitely makes me miss the New Glarus offerings.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery on our recent return visit to Perth and the Swan Valley. Cloudy golden yellow with a moderate merangue of a head. Enticing sweet spicy aromas, estery. Nice flavours of banana, vanilla, and spices with a tart lemony note in the finish. A very well done hefe.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, vom fass @ the brewhouse/restaurant, Henley Brook, Swan Valley.
Straw yellow, opaque and from what I could see very lightly carbonated. Creamy, soft white lather of foam formed and held on well leaving behind some minor lacing. Zesty lemons and lemon puree, and some sour wheat make up the tight, clean aroma. Unusually similar in the mouth, I was hoping for a massive rush of weissbier phenols and esters but this was almost a prodigal Witbier. Pleasant, spritzy carbonation on the tongue, light bodied and slightly pasty. Nice winter wheat flavours are harnessed to full effect. Lemon zest, souring malts and a touch of clove-like phenols cross the mouth with unrepentant vigour. Finish is powdery, sour but not puckering and reasonably smooth. This was quite nice despite my brighter judgements. Very, very easy to drink.

Colour was very similar to there pils just definitely a lot cloudier. Soft aroma of cloves on the nose which follows through to the taste, smooth taste throughout with a little tingle? also coming through. Medium body beer with some slight banana notes right at the end along with some mint.
