Bottled. Cloudy dark yellow with stable head. Odd aroma of licorice, oranges and oregano. Sweet and mild, with notes of vanilla. Pizza-like oregano finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy pale yellow; pungent, herbaceous nose with some appropriate phenols and plenty of spice. Very fizzy, and has too much Band-Aid in the palate, but otherwise has a good level of spice and malt.

330 ml bottle. Pale yellow, cloudy beer with a thick lasting white head. Massive coriander and orange peel aroma. Some bubble gum and some candyish sweetness as well. Flavour is quite juicy. Big coriander and citrus flavours. Wheaty dryness and spice on the finish along with some dusty yeast.

Pale hazy yellow, fizzy head. Thin body, generally an unremarkable example of the style.

looked so nice and dirty dishwatery coming out of the bottle. very morish, just enough spice to keep you interested. easily the best australian wit though the competition isn’t much to speak of; I think eczematic’s fudge wit is in 2nd place

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2003 Had this one again tonight after not having it for a while. I liked it a lot better than the last time. This time i picked up a lot more spice and clove. It still had a slightly thin, spritzy body like i remember, but the flavour and balance weren't as sticky or bland as i remember. At times it tastes quite Belgian and at times it has a German wheat sort of flavour, quite good. But fails to take the next step. Re-rate: had this again recently, man, was it bad this time, stale sweaty, off-putting aroma as eczematic mentions, veru odd.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of my brother. Poured a fairly clear, dull gold; large white head. Aroma of orange peel, spice/coriander and wheat. Biggest detraction is the presence of too much carbonation; comes off a bit fizzy on the palate. However, the flavor is actually not bad. A good amount of spice and orange flavors. Some mellow, but decent wheatiness. A light hint of sweetness. I guess I am one of minority who liked this one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very short head that didn’t hang around at all. Cloudy straw coloured body. The aroma was of lemon and zest and the taste was pretty much the same as the aroma with maybe some cloves coming through. The body was a bit thin and overall it was pretty average.
