COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So, this beer is part of our "Magnificent Mullet" Series (AKA Ape Drape; Meeräsche). We wanted to celebrate those who have donned one of the great hairdos of yesteryear. And what better way than infusing various fruits into a wheaty Berliner-ish type thing. This one is "Melon Gibson", a very Wit-y

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very light, slightly hazy straw colour with smallish brilliant white head. Aromas of wheat and yeast. Decent aroma of rockmelon save what would have been a pretty ordinary beer otherwise. Flavours are dominated by sweetish wheat malt. Not much else. Thin mouthfeel. Was hoping for some acoidity to come through given the reference to berlinner weise but unfortunately it was no where to be seen.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2012
Pours pale straw with a small head. Nose shows funky horse-blanket, soft watermelon and faint lemon. The watermelon is much more noticeable as a flavour in a confectionery sort of way, along with doughy wheat much later. Too much carbonation.

Brenhophead (532) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2012
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy straw colour with a typical wit nose but cant really detect the melon (maybe watermelon?). The flavour is light with wheat notes and a slight doughy yeast note. I’m not a fan of wheat beers to begin with so this isn’t really my cup of tea.

ALLOVATE (2339) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2012
A gusher once the seal was broken. It poured with much enthusiasm only to produce a beer of little life. A mere ring of white settles atop a mildly hazy pastel hued, sandy yellow body. Soft, subtle nose yields tart berries, melon candy, sulphury yeast and an undeniable hint of sweaty sock. Taste is of sweet watermelon Starburst candy; it is rather clean, considering the aroma, fresh, tangy and dominated by the supple fruit tones of the melons. Light wheat mid-palate, dry and pasty end that is crisp, dropping off to nothing past the tonsils. Well rounded, foamy and frothy in mouthfeel. Actually quite refreshing all in all. Just not ticking the right boxes for me though! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle 330ml from the local taphouse. Very enjoyable, nice malty flavours. Aroma is tropical and citrusy, with some grain. Taste is sweet, very lightly sour, with average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Cloudy yellow, with a frothy head.

Maris (956) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 13/4/2012. Pours a slightly cloudy light straw colour with a biggish white head that disappears quickly. There’s a bit of banana and melon in the aroma but not much else. Flavour wise, its very sweet with some bubblegum, banana and some watermelon. Unfortunately, it offers nothing in the way of balance. Comes across as a muted soft drink. The carbonation is quite high. Good packaging but an ordinary beer.

mkel07 (3031) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2012
330ml bottle. Big fluffy snow white head atop a hazy mild light amber beer. Lots of fruitiness in the aroma with plenty of melon aromas coming through. Feels good in the mouth wih a big burst of watermelon in the flavour. Love the name, love the label and live the beer. I look forward to he rest of the magnificent mullet series.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Hazy pale orange with an inch of white head. High carbonation. Aroma of spices, citrus and wheat with fruity notes I would have guessed as berries blind. Taste is barely sweet at first with spices and some tartness, then watermelon comes roaring through at the end. After a while the melon gives way to spices. Dry finish. Pretty good.
