3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Not from under the dunnny seat, this is a gloriously golden wheat beer. Enduring with good reason. Excellant bottle too.

Pale and crystal clear as a Kristallweizen should be. Bananas and wheat in the nose. Goes down clean and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2004 excellent australian wheat beer, i'd rate it probably just below hoegaarden white, great thirst quencher on a summer day, i could easily kill a 6pack on a hot day

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Compared to a megalager this is quite good, compared to a Hefeweizen it sucks. Often shows up in pubs that have nothing but VB/Draught so often becomes my beer of choice.
Nice wheaty aroma but no yeast character (lager yeast I presume). Pretty light on for flavour, bit of citrusy bitterness at the end. Refreshing and drinkable.

Its a good beer, just not in my favorite taste. Its served with a wedge of lemon in the glass which pushes the citris taste over the edge. Not a bad wheet beer, but I would suggest it without the extra lemon.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very spicey on the palate which is good. It seems to me that all wheat beers have a distinctive flavour and thids is no exception. Tastes dry and smooth early but with a spicey sharp hoppy palate. Smells like crap unfortunately but doesnt taste like it smells. Rich enough but could almost be sickly by the end or a 6-er. Not bad.

Good appearance and nice strong flavour, yet for some reason its quite difficult to drink more than one or two. Just doesn't sit right.

I just dont see the appeal for this beer, i found it thin and watery (in the stub). On the otherhand the citrus flavours overpowered it and make me think of cider. not pleasant. cheers
