COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mudgee Wheat is a traditional European-style beer, brewed using lots of wheat malt. It also uses Bavarian yeast, which gives the beer its cloudy appearance, and its distinctive aromas of clove and banana. This beer goes down very easily and is absolutely packed to the rafters with flavour. Brewing wheat beers is actually one of the more difficult brewing styles, but the creamy texture and spicy overtones of Mudgee Wheat are always worth the trouble.

Bottle. Sort of an odd one. Had a more hoppy pilsenery feel, but then the thick texture and banana lolly taste reminded me it was a wheat beer. Good maltiness, and goes down well with a cheese plate.

Tap @ brewery. Light gold. Slightly cloudy. Aromas of banana, wheat & spice. Strong wheat sourness, cloves & a touch of banana. Correct carbonation.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2014
Tasted 8/3/2014. Draught at Mudgee Brewing, Mudgee, NSW. Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a 5mm white head that diminished fairly quickly to collar that laced OK. Carbonation nil. Aroma of fruity fermented spices/cloves. Taste dominated by cloves with no/low bitterness. Light body. Smooth finish dominated by cloves. OK

An average wheat beer with the standard banana and fruit flavours but with such a tangy/ tart aftertaste, it ruins any possible enjoyment. Has the excessive carbonation that seems to be a hall mark of Mudgee beers.

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2010
From the bottle, a real pale straw colour. Plenty of carbonation. Interesting sweet aromas that I struggle to describe, some banana and bubblegum perhaps? Smooth but a tad thin mouth-feel, easy drinking. This is a good beer, good summer day quaffer.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 13/11/2010. Not a bad attempt at a hefe. Has a slightly odd aroma with some sharpness over the banana. The carbonation is good. Is reasonably sweet and has quite refreshing lemony tang. No world beater but quite drinkable.

mkel07 (3322) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours immensely pale straw colour with a good carbonation that leads to an uprising of bubbles that form a thick creamy white foam blanket. Cloudy as you would expect with clove and bubblegum aromas wafting through. Flavour is sweet and zippy on the palate. Not bad but not great either.

BTetlow (7) - BALLARAT, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2009 does not count
I thought this was an American Style Wheat when I first tried it because mine was almost completely devoid of cloves/banana. It definitely had the sourness I’d expect but too dry to balance it out properly. Head was good and hung around a little while. Mellowed a little after a while but the tartness was just a little too much for me.

Choos (595) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2009
Aroma: some funk with a hint of clove. Flavour: actually a decent mix of a little banana with clove and sweet malt.

Muggus69 (1171) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2008
Draught, Lawson Park Hotel, Mudgee. Dropped by on the way to Orange from the upper Hunter. Hazy pale golden body, fluffy white head. Decidedly sweet aroma, candy banana, bubble gum, wheat malt and clove. Creamy mouthfeel, high carbonation, seems somehow lean. Quite nice flavour, bubblegum seems more apparent than in most, bit of banana and spice on the finish. Quite nice for an Aussie micro hefe.
