COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

Muggus69 (1198) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
330mL bottle Cloudy peach orange body. Holds a loose white foam. Moderate aroam of banana bread, ripe yellow peach, vanilla & spice Lively carbonation, somewhat light bodied. Upfront Weetbix/cereal malt character, subtle overly ripe banana & pineapple/bruised apple fruitiness, with spices and minerals on finish. Low bitterness. Not bad, a bit dull, possibly not a fresh batch/bottle.

Nice hazy light yellow. Aroma is heavy on the lemon, as is the taste. Overly sweet but crisp and refreshing. I thought it was quite pleasant.

Imagining briefly a painted rendition of a wheat beer, it would look like the glass in front of me. An opaque musty yellow with a fluffy white head that seems to be subsiding as if it has sighed and said "Alright, you got me." as if it had been apprehended. The aromas are typically hefe with grain husk, banana, clove and lemon juice and the flavour is again, mostly typical of the style. I’ll be honest and say that I’m scratching my head a wee bit when it comes to the overall rating. I think this beer is more deserving that that. It is juicy and quaffable with spritzy carbonation. It does all I ask of a Friday evening beer and is laudable for that alone. In any case, a juicy sweetheart.
