COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Handcrafted by Murray’s exclusively for Port Stephens – in anticipation of our relocation to Port Stephens Winery in 2009, as we’ve run out of room at Taylors Arm! Light, spicy and refreshing – a Belgian Witbier with our own hallmark twist. 4.5% alc/vol. Great with fish and chips. Available on tap only at Port Stephens Winery. Or in 330ml bottles from Port Stephens Winery and select outlets in the Port Stephens peninsula.

The Whale Ale has a very important place in my heart. I have had some great beer moments with the Whale and even Murray’s to say that. A very clean, crisp, easy drinking beer. Pleasent aroma, looks great, taste is refreshing and clean. I couldn’t and would’t fault anything about my beloved Whale.

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright amber, with a large, foaming white head. This lasts for some time, creating quite decent lace. The aroma combines fresh floral notes with faint cookie dough and some coriander - an odd yet interesting mixture. Quite strong spicy hops start it off, with a delightful hint of lemon and coriander present too. This becomes quite strong moving into the middle of the beer, creating an almost witbier-like flavour. The finish is quite sweet, somewhat like a weizen, but with cinnamon and clove hints lurking in there as well. To start, I found this quite an odd beer, but the further I got through the glass the more it grew on me. A very complex and interesting beer indeed.

A cracking summer ale with a lovely hoppy, fruity aroma and a pleasant tang on the tongue. Could drink it all night.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 19, 2009
Draught at Beer Deluxe, Melbourne. Hazy golden with a medium white head. Great spicy aroma and flavour of clove, coriander, summer fruit, yeast and wheat. Solid malt backbone for a wit, not over the top and makes this extremely quaffable. Hoppy bitterness and more fruit and spice in the finish. Excellent beer.

Bottle 330ml at BeerDeLuxe. Well balanced, but not very intense. Aromas of honey, caramel, and biscuit. Sweet, with light bitter notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a pillowy head.

Pleasant summer drink - not especially wheaty - more lagery - goes down easy.
