2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap, Harts pub, Sydney.
Uniformly hazy pale straw beer with white foam.
Yeasty aroma, fair bit of pepper and coriander seed, with some lemon and banana in there.
Slightly lean, smooth unfiltered sort of body, reasonably high carbonation.
Fair bit of lemon and orange citrus on the body, more ripe banana, with pepper and clove spice lingering on the mildly tart finish.
Seemed a bit like hefeweizen at times, but not a bad drop overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Tap at the brewery: straw/yellow cloudy appearance, with a true-to-style witbier aroma, light-med body but a little underdone in terms of carbonation. One of the few palatable beers on offer at the premises.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Local Taphouse, Melbourne. Pours unclear yellow with a small lively white head. Spice and candy sugar aroma and flavour. Light yeasty esters. Very sweet mouthfeel. Low bitterness and thin bodied. It’s OK just a little boring and not much like a wit at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite a nice beer for this style. Tap server with a white head, cloudy. Nice zesty aroma, with a flavour of citrus but also hints of vanilla and peach. Finish is a bit short, but nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewery. Agree with comments below that teh style seemed a little confused... more like an english ale for mine, some bitterness and not much presence of wheat. Full fruity taste though, if a little ripe. Not too bad.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tried on tap at the five islands brewery. Copper body with thin head. An amber wit beer maybe but a bit confused, did nothing for me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 On tap at the Five Islands Brewery. Arrived a burnt copper with a small creamy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of sweet butterscotch lollies, with sticky toffee, some lightly burnt brown sugar and sweet caramel malts. Flavor was quite watery with sweet malts, toffee, butterscotch and a non-existent bitterness. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, watery texture, smooth/slightly creamy mouthfeel and a short finish. The bar staff told me this was some kind of wheat beer/wheat ale but it really seemed more along the lines of an ESB (minus the bitterness) , non of the usual characteristics of a typical wheat beer, though I am not positive.
