3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Once again the point of difference is the problem - leave the galaxy hops out (the mountain goat "creative" bit) and this is a really lovely malty and creamy dunklerweissbock (the brooklyn bit). Add the galaxy in and it’s a dunklerweissbock drenched in orange juice and passionfruit. how is that creative? why?

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
BB 29/04/14. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a big (3+ finger) light tan foamy head that diminished quickly to a collar of bubbles. Laced as spots at best. Faint aroma of hops and not much else. Taste of earthy hops that leaves a rough bitterness in the mouth. Light body. Rough bitter finish. A mix of different styles that failed.

Very strong fruity aroma and flavours, a bit fizzy. Not really my cup of tea, an interesting beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A confusing medley of looks, aroma and taste this one turned out to be. Produces up a muddy and opaque pale brown with a very messy drab of wash atop. Fresh, bright hop nose off-set by a touch of lactic acid and sour cream - rather subtle and simple but not at all alluring. Sour and lactic on the palate with a harsh, weedy bitterness that is lasting. Very light bodied and effervescent. Tart, acidic malt with a grape-skin astringency that gets the tongue to twist. A touch of tooth-pick, a touch of lemon peel and band-aid phenols. In no way a wheat Bock at least. Not good at all. To be fair I’ll need another bottle! (64cL, BB 29/04/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dull, cloudy golden brown with a finger or so of fine, off white head that’s punctuated with larger bubbles.
Nose is fairly hoppy, with some grapefruit, lemon and tropical pineapple, but also some hefeweizen-like banana and bubblegum.
The taste is a really lovely blend of hops and esters. The attack is lashings of banana candy, some pineapple fruitiness and a bit of citrus. This is followed by more banana and some citrus on the mid palate and the finish is quite resinous and bitter, with a lingering sweet banana flavour and just a hint of toast.
Really interesting and different.
