3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear golden with no head. Pleasant aroma esters / banana with some hops. Medium palate with plenty of carbonation. Flavour has a fruity start (mango / banana) with a hint of spice developing into some hoppy bitterness in the finish. A pleasant, but not exceptional beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draught) Light gold with generous white head and nice lace. Yeast aroma. Flavor of yeast, mild spices/fruit. Unfortunately it was paired with a steak, which didn’t help bring out the flavor - I asked the waitress (in a pub in Brisbane) what Redback was, and she said "Sort of a reddish beer" - I was expecting an Irish or maybe an amber ale, not a wheat beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
345ml bottle. Pours a surprisingly clear golden yellow. Puffy white head that drops to a lacey whisp. Lemony citrus aroma with a touch of yeast to it. Reasonably clean and strong biting citrus dryness - sweet yet tart. A bit light in the spice / banana dept and maybe misses something being so clear

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
...bottle. Clear golden yellow with minimul white head that fades very quickly. Lots of clove on the nose, as well in the flavor. Some wheat malt, but not enough. Light boodied with a fizzy carbonation. FInishes dry, with more clove. Too expensive, too clear, and not a hefeweizen. Taste was a little better than I expected, but that’s because I like clove.
