A traditional German style wheat ale, this beer is brewed in the Yarra Valley with 50% wheat and 50% barley. It is lightly bittered with hops hops grown in the Hallertau region of Bavaria. Conditioning occurs in the bottle, and provides some prominent estery notes of cloves and vanilla.

Pyobon (1300) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2015
(Bottle) Clear golden yellow with tiny loose white head. Pleasant aroma - bananas, grassy hops and hint of cardboard. Light bodied and rather fizzy. Fruity start of bananas quickly replaced by citrus for a rather thin tart mid-palate, developing some peppery notes than evolve into a bit of bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, easily drinkable, unexceptional.

From a bottle. Not bad at all, the usual banana and clove present, good example of style.

Lagerboy (1936) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
330 ml bottle. Unclear orange yellow, healthy off-white froth settles and lasts. Aroma has lots of clove, some yeast. Taste is soft and bland wit malt, hefespice, creamy vanilla banana, citrus hints. Too soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Odd and not particularly pleasant. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

shadymmj (7) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
Bottled. High carbonation with not much aroma. Hits the mouth with sour, almost rancid fruity notes. Far removed from a true hefeweizen, it tastes more like an ale with cloves than anything else. Not much wheat nor bread in the palate. Mildly bitter, not undrinkable, but still horrible. Trying to like local brewers but it must be said that this is a very dubious beer.

The winner is the aroma which is as described, banana and cloves. It has a long lasting head, nice carbonation, the taste is lacking though and doesn’t translate from the aroma.

M_Sack (620) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Hazy straw, big frothy white head with plenty of bubbles. Orange juice, yeast, cloves and vanilla aromas. Similar flavours are present although it is dominated from a sour wheatiness and some sweet grain. Good carbonation. Not a very good beer from what is normally a great brewery.
