nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2008
Pours a light straw colour with small white head. Wheat malt aroma, very subtle banana ester which carries over to the flavour. Lacking true hefeweizen characteristics, its thinbodied, watery texture and average finish.

Muggus69 (1926) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2008
345ml bottle, BB July 08! Whoops, guess thats why its a freebie... Pours a reasonably hazy orange-straw body, small creamy white head. Aroma has some subtle estery notes; banana, apple, apricot, some clove and bread in there, and typical damp cloth Aussie macro skunk that comes along and ruins it a bit. Lively carbonation, but missing the creamy mouthfeel of a typical hefe. Watery in general, not a great deal of length, some slight dryness and acid. Wheaty malt body, slight gritty grain quality, fair bit of pepper and clove on the body, overly ripe banana and apple. Finishes with barely any bitterness, chalky and drying, bit of banana lingers. I’m gonna say it’s not bad, certainly doesn’t hold a candle to most hefeweizens, but its drinkable, even when a few months out of date...or maybe that helps!?

Sampled (3 times) and enjoyed a nice wheat beer. Went down really smooth. Not too cloudy but not bad.

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 (1262) - 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 (750) - 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.
