Interesting beer. Poor is pale and cloudy in appearance almost a light clay like colour. No significant carbonation. No over all aromatics. Flavour is of wheat and banana. Subtle and flavoursome . Tart and refreshing.

On draught @ The Norfolk Hotel, Fremantle.
Had thought I’d been served a dodgy batch of beer as the bar tender handed over this one. The appearance of milk mixed with sand is the honest appearance of this thickly liquor. Muddy, wheat yellow with little carbonation to be seen and a rapidly depleting froth atop. Sour malt, yeasty, lactic and heaving with phenolics, spice and what seems to be lemon balm. A complete 180° on the palate. ’Morning juice’ is all I can sum it up as; that blend of tropical fruit juices such as guava, mango, lychee, orange. This dominates in what is honestly the thickest, most syrupy of Belgian Wit’s that I have ever tried. Powdery wheat malt, a touch of vanilla, lemon zest, clove and peppery spice amongst a lot of fruit with no sign of that rhubarb. Finish is long, fresh, zesty with moderate carbonation keeping it all moving along nicely. Surprisingly good, I managed to polish off the pint with alarming speed. A really well made Wit.

Growler from Dan Murphy, Prahran (!). Soupy orange with a coat of white head that doesn’t last. Wheaty aroma with oranges, coriander, cloves and rhubarb. Light bodied, very refreshing and alive. A little tart rhubarb, quite punchy spices, orange and lemon zest. Pretty good.
