3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Looked like a good New Zealand bottle of beer to pop the cork on to celebrate the All Blacks winning the rugby world cup. It probably gets a higher overall rating than it deserves because of that. Hazy light golden with large but diminishing fluffy white head. Aromas of wheat banana - very estery, clove, bread dough cobwebs, apple & pear. Light sweet, moderate bitter and sour flavour with long duration. Tingly carbonation, light medium body, texture on the watery side. For a lot less coin I could have had a lot more Hoegaarden, but on this occasion Moa looked a lot more celebratory.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle in tulip glass. Pours clear, pale yellow with modest head. Aroma of fruit bread and the taste is in that direction with low bitterness. OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating. Weird bubbly wheat. Some fruity notes (but not usually wit fruits, more like grape and apple), fairly acidic, lots of carbonation. Didn’t quite work for me.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
330 ml bottle sampled April 2014. Clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma like something between a bad industrial lager and moisten rubber gloves. Flavor is light pale malty, quite metallic and low bitterness. Medium to thin body. Practically undrinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Party Source from notes. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, yeast, mild citrus peel, light banana, mild spice, rather boring actually.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle into pint glass. Champagne bottle with cork! Slight wheat aroma. Cloudy yellow with active but dissipating head. Spritzy mouthfeel leading to burnt malt finish with a little grape. It’s nice but for a wheat beer, so few fruit notes? Highly carbonated, maybe a champagne/beer hybrid?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear light amber with a solid white head cover, splashes of lace. Good aroma of malt and floral hops. Taste is malt and wheat that adds just a touch of vanilla before crisply moving to floral hops on the swallow, with all parts then moving smoothly through a medium finish. Not strong or assertive, but clean, balanced, and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good beer for summer night. Refreshing orange and banana aroma through to the palate with a bit of sweet potato. No particular note disturbingly dominates and a slight fruitiness lingers on the palate. Loving this as a starter beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted 15/12/2014. Poured a hazy golden amber colour with 5mm of white, large bubbled, foamy head that diminished quickly to a collar. Laced very poorly. Carbonation low and coarse; went flat fast. Aroma of malt with subtle hints of wheat but malt dominates; no obvious hops. Taste of sour grain and no real hops; bland. Light body. Gets a bit sour as it warms. Very slight bitterness/spice on the finish. More like a lager than a wheat beer. Poor.
