2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow with a very thin head. Sharp aggressive rough outdoor aroma. Spritzy then foamy mouth feel. Hint of lemon butter. More American than German in style.

Somewhat sadder than what i remembered. Yes it is a wheat beer with a presence of banana’s and cloves. What is there that i didn’t recall is some skunkiness and a very thin body. Maybe it is rose tinted glasses, maybe it is fosters, but isn’t as good as i once remembered.

In the bottle. Pours gold with a big bubbled white head. The aroma was slightly skunked. Fairyl sweet with a faint grainy wheat flavor. Has just a touch of cloves? Super clear and extremely filtered. Sadly, this stands out among most bottle shop offerings in this part of the world, taste-wise.

On tap at Opera Bar. Tasted a bit weird to me the first time, since filthmuppet supplied it with a slice of lemon. Second one tasted better without, but maybe a bit boring. In retrospect, perhaps the lemon wasn’t a bad idea after all, since the beer itself really did nothing for me beyond actually being a hefeweizen. Good thing i like hefeweizen i suppose.

Tastes like homebrew, so if you like homebrew you might like this, my homebrew is pretty bad I’ll sell you some if you like Redback.

Amber-yellow. Weird aroma; a sort of sour bitterness. Also sour tastes, fairly bland all in all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 (Bottle 34,5 cl) This beer is pure nostalgia to me. I remember having this in 1988 back at the Matilda Bay brew pub in Fremantle, when the beer was all new and exiciting. So how was the revisit?:
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Vague wheat aroma with some yeast. Rather light-bodied, slightly sweet. Weak accents of fruit and yeast before a dry finish. Mostly resembles an American Wheat in style. Far from greatness, but thanks to highlandlad, for bringing back sweet memories. 140506

Bottled. Pale golden colour, not much head. Aroma is wheat and bitter hops (?), it’s quite special. Weak sour fruitiness too. Flavour is malts, wheat and hops with weak bananaish hints... Aftertaste is wheaty and fruity. Not the typical German Hefeweizen.... Rich carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color, small white head - this is more like Kristallweizen, not "Hefeweizen". Light sweet mango-banana aroma, some sourish notes too. Dry, grassy, quite strange - a bit witbier-like flavor. Even similarities to New Glarus Spotted Cow which I sampled today earlier. Very unusual wheat beer.
