UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2008
...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.

Pyobon (1014) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2008
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.

Not too bad, definitely not worth the price tag though. Have drank it inPerth a few times but they serve it to you with a wedge of lemon in the neck.....yuppy scum!

bozoNZ (723) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2007
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

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2007
(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.

sinkas (289) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2007
Sampled from bottle at WABA Beer dinner, Applecross, WA Not really a hefeweizen anymore, maybe more and american wheat. Light on body and flavour.
