3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A well-made weizen with additions so subtle that they’re hard to pick. In other words, this is not at all what I’ve come to expect from Moon Dog, who rarely leave out the kitchen sink when the opportunity presents. It gives a typical over-excitable Moon Dog pour - a head:body ratio of about 3:1. Hazy lemon barley water colour and an enormous whipped egg-white head that takes an eternity to settle. Inviting aroma with the banana-and-clove yeast notes prominent and the lime and watermelon in the background. Very light in the body, which flatters the style. Really summery and refreshing, which makes no sense right now because it’s 4C outside. As with the aroma, there is more banana than watermelon on the tongue. Some clove spice and a squeeze of lime sourness in the finish. Overall, very balanced. Nice summer drinking - this would be so much better than a VB after playing footy. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars.)

I believe that this could have benefit from a few more IBU.
Not to my personal taste, but I should not discount it as a result of this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33 cl thanks to jduvet! On June 24, 2014.
Cloudy yellow to apricot skin color, small white head. Sweet, alcohol, fruity, some banana scent. Melon, yeast, fruity, some clove taste. Clove, yeasty aftertaste. Very fizzy mouthfeel, very low bitterness.
The scent and taste are very different, the melon taste would do better without the strong yeast character present. Very very very fizzy mouthfeel, detracts a lot from the perception of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Scratch Bar 090214. While not a big fan of watermelon I found that this beer was quite good. You can certainly taste the watermelon and it is a refreshing drop.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
It pours a cloudy yellow, absolutely no head, zero carbonation, shake it up there will be no bubbles. The aroma is fruity, very little watermelon in there, the taste similar, surprisingly drinkable but you can barely call this a beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a straw yellow with fluffy head that dissipates. Nose shows heavy weizen notes, watermelon and maybe some mint. Taste is banana, wheat and a refreshing watermelon finish. Quite good.

Very gassy with an unpleasant after taste. Poured it down the drain about half way through

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Crisp, fruity, yeasty nose. Pale yellow-gold with a quiet head. Light body. Tastes of sour fruit hops, with a definite watermelon finish. Not exactly bad, but I’ve gotta be in the right mood for something like this.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Odd fruity flavour, watermelon and line. Pale cloudy yellow colour with poor head. Clove and banana seem to dominate. Light to medium body with med carbonation

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. It’s really hard to judge this. So sessionable, so balanced, not overly sour, a little sweet. Well done all rounder type but nothing to set it apart. Either way though it is tasty
