Well this is a surprise. Forced into Walkabout to watch extra time and not expecting anything decent. But this is. An Australian wheat beer. Who'd have thought? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle- fruity aroma with creamy mouthfeel. A good interpretation of a traditional German style wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

downender (6565) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Big wheaty notes, a spicy edge, touch of banana and dry, yeasty finish. Not sure if this is ’true to style’, but I enjoyed it.

blackbock (112) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2012
(botle) Poured a slightly hazy yellow. Not bottle conditioned, so must be protein haze. Strong phenolic odour. Wheaty taste. Not much character to speak of at all really.

gav12c (119) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2012
pours a crystal clear golden yellow, on the nose it’s sweet wheat with a hint of banana.taste’s slightly of a bitter lager with a hint of a wheat beer, not bad, but not what i was expecting. then ends with more of a traditional wheat beer flavor. more of a ladies wheat beer than i’d like but far from the worst.

Sevenlee (1432) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is faint but some sweet wheat and hints of fruit. Taste is also wheaty with notes of fruit such as orange and banana. Not bad.

Bottle at the domestic airport. I have always found redback solid. Nothing outstanding and not completely shit. Does get heavy on the palate after a while but so do most wheat beers for me

Westmeister (1865) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear olden yellow with minimal head. Smells of wheat, damp yeast and some secondary sugar as in added after the fact. Taste is not bad given this is the only wheat I’ve had in the 25+ Aussie brews. Taste is certainly bumblegumy wheat with medium high carbonation. I probably rank this high due to the lack of wheats in Australia. Cheers.

mkel07 (3828) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2011
345ml bottle. Very bright and clear and bursting with sweet ripe banaba aroma. Smallish head for the style. Flavour is good with a big hit of sweetness. Sits well in the mouth and is good without being great.

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Clear golden copper coloured body with a thin, soapy white head. Aroma of wheat, cardboard, caster sugar, soap and very mild yeast - pretty mild. Light-bodied; Sharp wheat and yeast flavour at first with a good kick of light spices and yeast with a little sweetness at the end. Aftertaste is mild, yet shows some good clove and coriander seed freshness, with a touch of corn at the very end. Overall, a decent beer, not so horrible, but not showing much flavour at all. Definitely good to try, especially after all the time and the 15,000 miles to bring it back! I sampled this 345 mL bottle purchased from a bottle shop in Circular Quay, Sydney, NSW, Australia on 24-July-2008, sampled at home in Washington nearly three years later on 05-February-2011.
