330ml bottle. Lots of frothy small bubbles and hazy murky pale lemon colour. Grapefruit in the aroma and the flavour is a mix of citrus fruit. Not one of their best

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy yellow with a large, fluffy white head leaving ince lacing behind. Nose is all about the funk and brett with some zesty lemon and citrus notes behind it all. Quite sour and tarty in the taste with clear lemon zest and a sort of lemon morange feel to it. Bready aftertaste. Not bad

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large souffle-like white head that lasts well. Very high bead. Aroma is barnyardy with complex citrus and tropical fruit. Light-bodied with a little slickness. Sweet lemon pudding, wheaty tartness, grapefruit, lime-leaf, white pepper, a little detergent. Little if any bitterness. Very refreshing with some interesting things going on.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an unexcited pastel yellow with very fine carbonation. Head is up, had is down then settles little more than a film of white. Ripe and artificial, deep drawn citrus nose edging at lime Coola cordial, candied lemon and Solo™ lemon soda, rose water and light yeasty notes - this is heady and lingering. Tart and tight, and more exciting than what was taken in before on the palate. A little hairy, the yeast working in well. Lemon sherbet, citric acid, salted white-rind cheese, lemon zest and a great deal of all things lime dominates the palate. Watery to be honest and this shows in the very quenching, clean, thin, nothing passed the tonsils swallow and nothing on the palate to remind. I know what Moon Dog set out to achieve, and ’heck’ they achieved it. But this one did nothing for me. But, I’m a softy so credit where credit is due though!!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours straw with a fading head.
Aroma include funky brett, lemon, orange blossom and floral perfume.
Wheat, lemon and floral notes present themselves as flavours, along with more funky brett and some acidity.
Carbonation is too high.
Light and refreshing stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mrs Parma’s. Very interesting, similar to a Belgian wit. Aroma of citrus, with notes of honey, coriander, and apple. Taste is sweet and tart, with average length. Palate is velvety, and highly carbonated. Pale yellow, with a thin head.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw with smallish bright white head. Aromas of lemons, ginger and a little bretty funk. Flavours are somewhat sweet and almost soft drink like. Harsh slightly sour / bitter finish. Thin mouthfell. Pretty ordinary in my view.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330mL bottle. Very pale pour with a small head and a lemon pudding aroma. A funkyness the flavour with a light fruity flavour to it and minimal bitterness. I think we are all over the magnificent mullet series by the time this beer was released.
