COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true summer thirst quencher! This refreshing Wheat Beer is styled after the famous "wit bier" or white beer of Belgium and similar to the German "wiess biers". It is a hazy light yellow in colour, and during fermentation takes on a white appearance. Holgate White Ale is based on a special combination of wheat and barley malts, lightly hopped and loaded with a delicate combination of fresh Orange Peel and ground corriander seeds - all combining to make a refreshing and easy drinking Ale, perfect for summer conditions.

Jado (518) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours a clear yellow with a fluffy persistent white head and lively carbonation. There’s banana, white bread and bubblegum on the nose. Taste is similar, although there are also lemon and (light) coriander flavours coming through. Finishes cleanly, but quite short. Light bodied and refreshing.

Bif (1426) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2013
On tap at the Holgate Brewhouse. Served a hazy straw color with a moderate head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of fruit, especially banana with some citrus. taste of citrus, some banana and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and refreshing. Nice beer, nothing fancy but goes down easy.

LesArgen (200) - AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
My first whiff of this had me ready to pour it down the sink but it came good as I sniffed on through the pain, with banana, tang, coriander and white pepper coming through. The palate is alarmingly soapy and a little thin, but the flavour is good, with lemon, orange and coriander.

halfbaked (48) - - JAN 26, 2013
Pale, cloudy yellow. Aroma of unripe banana, maybe a hint of coriander. A little dry on the palate. Some hints of banana come through in the flavour. Light and a bit thin. Nothing special.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 18/12/2011. Pours a fairly clear yellow with a tiny head that disappears instantly. Has a moderate wit aroma of banana, spices and bubblegum, which also translates to the flavour. Let down badly by the palate, which is thin, watery and under carbonated.

mkel07 (3353) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2011
330ml bottle. Slightly darker in colour than expected, though this is not a bad thing. Level vibrant white foam cap. Orange peel and spice carry through to the nose and the flavour is pleasing in the mouth but doesn’t linger and is fairly light on the palate.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle. Pale, hazy golden pour with a short white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is weak but fairly standard for a wit: orange, coriander, banana and clove plus a faint chalky undertone. Flavour is also pretty weak; similar to the aroma but very watery with a mineral character that stands out. Thin, watery mouthfeel with low carbonation and a very short dry finish. Refreshing like mineral water but pretty average as a beer.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Pour at Warners at the Bay Beer Festival 2010. Noticeable belgian yeast aroma, flavours of coriander, yeast, honey, and spice. Decent for the style, but nothing spectacular.

hawthorne00 (2413) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2010
Bottle. Yellow beer with a small white head that fades fast.Smells of oranges and coriander. Watery and bland. I last had one of these maybe ten years ago and it was massively overcarbonated and kind of bad-funky and metallic. I then didn’t try any of their other beers for many years, which turned out to be a mistake. But this one is poor.
