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.

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.

Sweet hop malt aroma. Clear amber yellow colour with fair head and lacing. Sweet malt flavour with hops. Fizzy palate.

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.

djm (5) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2006 does not count
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.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2005
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.
