Our ‘Monsoonal Blonde’ is a wheat beer, based loosely on the style that has evolved in American microbreweries over the last 10 – 20 years. It is cardamon infused, which matches perfectly our authentic curries, here in Broome.

pours pale, very subtle aroma - picked up a little spice but little else. Mild taste - wheat, can’t pick up much else. Easy drinking but not really much to it, given the reputation/price tag

330mL bottle. Pours clear pale straw with a nice spicy aroma,the aroma has corriander, cinnamon? that some what follows through to the flavour with a slight hop flavour and malt/wheat backing. i must say that i normally do not like wheat beers but this beer is full of flavour.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 Not a bad beer at all. Just plain and simple. Light wheat on a spicey palate which is easy drinking. Perfect for summer but not so good in winter

330ml bottle. Light pale straw colour with a large evenly compacted head. Well carbonated and carries aromas of bubblegum and bananas. Sweet head that lingers to a slow fade. Smooth on the palate with a light aftertaste.

You no longer have to go all the way to Broome to sample Matso’s tasty brews-- they bottle them now! Hazy straw colour, whipped white head. Wheaty and subtly spicy aroma and flavour, nice lemony tartness in the finish.

First beer off the rank at Fremantle’s International ’How much can you drink?’ fest. Honestly was a great day for myself; wife’s at work, stinkin’ hot, not much shade and a couple of thousand tanked Sand groper’s bouncing around demanding more beer for their enjoyment. Anyway, onto the beer. Tasted on draught; opaque lemony straw body through the plastic cup. Decent sized head formed that managed to last and trail globs of sticky froth in it’s wake. Tangy wheat nose with a balance of tart ginger, grapefruit and pineapple. Wheat flavour is predominant in the mouth, quite grainy and pasty with undertones of pine-nuts, light biting herbs and a souring malt edge down the sides. Very light in body and a little too charged in carbonation which affected the mouthfeel. Becomes tangy in the back as it warms but still finishes rather fresh with a light hint of grainy wheat, ginger-root and pineapple. This was a little undemanding, but it was refreshing so for that it did its job. Matso’s had the busiest tent of the event for the time I was there so this one must also agree with the younger patrons who turned up in there droves. Easy drinker.
