Stew41 (1811) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2004
Light gold, almost light brown in the glass. Did look quite largerish. Ok head hangs around a while. Nose is true to type with some spice and clove, although a little subtle. Palate is ok - I can see the wheat beer character trying to emerge very early with some nice spicy and sweet notes but just fades to a thin, no deScript finish. I’ve seen worse examples but this is no excuse to not chase the real thing.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle: (would call it a krystal- rather than a hefe-) Poured crystal clear light gold with a large white head of medium bubbles. Subtle banana and spice aroma, some salty mussels-in-wine, and background spinach and rocket. Taste was quite lagery for a wheat. Flavour watery wheaty flavour, finishes with some sweet lemon. Fills the mouth reasonably, but is a little thin and watery. Finishes quite dry.

Pours very pale yellow clear with medium-high carb. Lacks aroma, bit of banana but not much. Similar flavour, very subtle banana, clove and bubblegum. A little too bland, and thin in feel for my tastes.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Finally, an Australian pub beer approaching respectability. Golden amber color with a medium thick, off white head. Banana and clove aroma, wheaty. Taste is sweet clove and wheat maltiness. Pleasurable. Sampled at Di Biers pub in Melbourne, Australia.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2004
Plae Golden colouring with a nice head. Banana\Spice-type aroma. Wheat-honey flavour. Normally gets served at bars with a slice of lemon - in which I recommend.

A very nice wheat beer. I must say that some good beers come out of Perth. Drink it whenever I am in WA.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2004
Golden coloured, slight haze from wheat. fair head. Caramelized aroma, some citrus hops. flavour is slightly grainy wheat with some refreshing tartness. cloying honeyish sweetness. i am sure that they’ve changed their recipe, it was never that sweet in my previous tastings

3fourths (8699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2004
Clear yellow with a puffy white head. Slightly spiced aroma of banana and clove, similar to a belgian trippel. Light flavor, not much going on, some light spices near the finish, which is crisp and refreshing. Not bad.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2004
Bottled, in Sydney. First thing you notice on the label is that it says it’s a wheat beer, second thing you notice is that it doesn’t taste like a true wheat beer. Foggy golden coloured body, wheat notes merely outlined in the beer. Banana (acetylene) aroma. Smooth mellowed wheat and fruit flavours. Very subdued.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2004
Huge pillowy head over a crystal clear pale yellow body. Aroma is mostly wheat and yeast but a hint of spice and banana. Spritzy palate. Flavour is kind of subdued but there is a touch of the citrus in the finish which is pleasantly refreshing. Excellent after training when I am thristy as a very thirsty guy.
