I really, really enjoy this beer whether it's in summer or the cooler months. The thing I like about it is you can taste it right from when it hits your tongue to long after it slides down your throat.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2003 A quite enjoyable beer. The wheat taste is ever present, and makes for easy drinking. Distinctive.

This tastes much better from the tap than the bottle but the real original was even better than both.Some taste of banana and a tart finish.

For those who don't know a Redback is an Australian spider with a, er, red back. It is poisonous and its favourite habitat is under the toilet seat in country outhouses. What does that have to do with a German style wheat beer? Well, it er, um, has, you know, I mean.......I don't bloody know. It has a thin head over a light body, nose is clearly estery with banana but with a metallic note. It is a bit too effervescent for my taste and the flavour, while typical of a German wheat is understated. A funnel web would have more bite.

This is a beer that you will drink in place of your (now out of stock) smoked beef jerky. The aroma is fairly subtle, but the smokey taste is quite unique to any beer I've yet tried. Nowhere is there a hint of sweetness (which I also like), and I almost wish it were 'chewable'. I'd say that the taste of this beer would totally overshadow any meat consumed. Nice dry aftertaste also. Break out the jerky (or biltong if you're from South Africa)!

A different taste compared to alot of australian brews. Not being a big stout drinking i find myself comparing to guiness and other such drops. Smooth and rich and most disirable after a red meat meal.

Um, just had this on tap at the Townie. Much better on tap, fruitier. The bottled shit is characterless and watery. If you’re ever stuck playing pool in the townie though, get a schooner or two, or three or four, or maybe more. oops I’m drunkkkk sdyhgweywhyswwwwwwwwwbdlwbwhe

Nice surprising fullness of flavour in this beer considering it’s colour and texture.
