4 Oct 05 - Good citrus wheat hop aroma. Clear yelloq golden colour, good head and OK suds lacing. Big citrus hop flavour. Low biterness, light m outhfeel, lacks complexity or something, but easy drinking

Very tasty wheat beer...my second favorite Australian beer on tap (after Alpha Pale Ale, also by Matilda Bay). Is flavourful, with banana/clove. Very easy drinking and interesting wheat beer.

Excellent filtered wheat beer without the expected flavors of a german hefe, banana/clove, but far more tasty and refreshing than most american style wheat beers. Delicious with just a thimble of raspberry syrup too. Sadly, this beer hasn’t been available in the US since the early 90s. Why we get Fosters and not this is beyond me.

I really love this beer. Easily the best Australian brewed beer that I have tried. When drinking redback I always find it to be refreshing and easy to drink. The taste is difficult to describe - sweet, yeasty and wheaty. It has a lovely aroma too. I could drink these all day. Well done to Matilda Bay for producing such a fine beer.

A reasonable attempt, but not what you would call an outstanding beer. Lacking in bannana/clove characteristics. lacking in aroma. A nice summer beer if you couldnt get a Hoegarden.

Found this in Tokyo at an International Food Festival right outside Shibuya Station (Thanks for directions TimE) A clear medium gold with a white head. Mostly bubblegum, some Banana not much with the cloves though. Sweet but a bit sticky. Not bad but I’d call it a Kristalweizen not a Hefe, no cloudyness at all.

Nothing wrong with this one really, just a bit lacking in all of the characteristics I would expect from a good hefe. Its like the yeast derived banana, bubblegum flavors wanted to get out but were held back. Nice mouthfeel that you would expect and a lasting frothy head lead you to believe the wheat beer claim, but it just isnt quite up to the challenge.

This pours as quite a nice beer, first sip in good but when it leaves your mouth the overwhelming flavour is... BACON!!! WTF. It is seriously wired. I didn’t expect it and certainly didn’t appreciate it one bit. Salty cured meet is not a nice flavour in beer. But if have to give them points for ingenuity I cant imagine how the hell you get a bacon flavour into beer.

I had this beer at the 3 wise monkey’s pub in Sydney. Crowdy bar for young people (like me or younger), but the reason i went over there was the live music. However, they served this draft beer with a huge slice of citrus in it, so I couldn’t recognise this one as a Hefeweizen. Clear yellow color, short head. The slice of citrus made it smell like citrus, sweet and penetrating, only some hops. I couldn’t recognise any banana or clove. Taste was like a regular pale lager, but with a more sirupy texture. Still, it was not too bad.
