COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Classic Belgian style Blonde Wheat Beer. It is bottle conditioned and naturally cloudy using Australia's premium barley, wheat and coriander. Hints of luscious citrus seep through what is believed to be Australia's most delicious blonde head.

Hummm, my notes from the Brisbane Festival of Beers simply says "Good", must have been late in the day. I can recall it as a fair attempt at a Belgian White though.

This not a bad beer but in the style of Grand Ridge, can be hit and miss. This is a lovely light, belgian wit style with some lovely wheat notes and the tast of clean malt. Can be great.

Slight Belgian wit type nose but not too prominent. Quite dark on the pour with an orange rather than pale colour. Quite acidic and small amount of the coriander and orange peel noted. Too fizzy as well, but to be fair this is being tasted in winter. It may be much better on a hot summer's day so I will revisit this then.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Some lemon, coriander and bubblegum in the aroma. Mild, mainly (wheat) malt driven palate with a slightly zesty finish. Nicely rounded, smooth, malty mouthfeel. Could handle a bit more carbonation and more agressive wheat characteristics.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2003
like kaya says, tastes like a cross between a german and a belgian wit. super wheaty, grainy, tart flavour, with only a hint of coriander. very lemony - like melted down lemon icecream. touch of banana too. original and tasty.

Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow. Orange aroma. Sweet and light bodied. Soft, stylish and refreshing.

I think motelpogo is dead-on with the school desk call. I also remember him mentioning something about chicken salt... I didn't like it too much, not tart, spicy or anything a wit should be -- just sort of dank.

Nice light golden color with minimal head. Strong fruity taste (oranges/lemon) blended with coriander maybe, or even cloves. Excellent aussie attempt at the a Belgian White.

Something a bit manky in the smell, at least to me, but it looks great - lovely pale honey colour with little floaties. The head dies quickly, and the taste is spiced fruit. A good aussie wheat beer, if you like that kinda thing.
