A classic Belgian style blonde wheat beer. It is naturally cloudy using Australia’s premium wheat, malt, and coriander. Natural orange peel used in the brewing process lets luscious hints of citrus seep through what is believed to be Australia’s most delicious blonde head. Awarded 2 medals at the Australian and International beer awards 2002. Winner of Australia’s best wheat beer in 2002 and 2003. In 2003 it won 4 medals including worlds best draught wheat beer and more in 2005 -2011. A great accompaniment to Thai food, curries, barbeques and an exceptional balcony beer. Worlds best wheat beer 2010 UK Beer Awards.

KeefOz (1533) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2016
Poured a clouded straw colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma softly of spice/coriander and sweet fruit (orange, banana). Taste of spice/coriander and sweet fruit/banana. Light body. Smooth, slightly fizzy mouthfeel and with subtle spices on the finish. Typical wheat beer style.

330ml bottle into glass. Slight sour nose. Cloudy golden beer with thin white head. Medium carbonation. Light spritzy mouthfeel. Creamy, sour, fruity. Finish is a bit vegetal. It’s OK.

Morboso (145) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2015
Another possible dud from a variety 6 pack from this maker - on special so maybe the reason. Light honey aroma, very cloudy, no head, super sweet so I am thinking unfermented sugar in the bottle. Still, can get the picture what it would be like if I had a good one, and it is typical of wheat beer style which to me is not very nice anyway.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden with a small foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet citrus aromas of orange peel. Taste is laced with some coriander and spice, and some unpleasant phenolic taste. Some malt sweetness.

Muggus69 (2100) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2014
330ml bottle Pale straw body, small dense head. Light aroma; wheat cereals, spice and citrus peel. Good carbonation, light body, dry body Cereal malt base make way for notes of aromatic spice, and citrus. Mildly biter finish, a touch of tartness. Not a bad wit
