Sevenlee (1264) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruit, banana, yeast and some spice. Taste is light sweet of wheat leading to a fruity finish. Decent.

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub Wasn’t too sure if this was a Wheat beer or a Wit. Smells a bit like honey with a touch of lemon in the taste as well, cloves in and out as well. Still it was drinkable.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2006
The previous comments regarding the witbier/weizen meld seemed to ring true with my sample, as I was sure I could taste some orange and coriander. Either they are still using that mix or I am talking out of my arse (which are equally likely). Quite a well balanced flavour, and very more-ish and refreshing. Good depth of flavour although the finish is a bit short. However allround it’s a pretty decent beer.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2006
Above-average Aussie wheat beer. Not a favourite style but this seemed pretty true to its benchmark. Bright gold with a skinny, lasting head. Qutie a creamy aroma (seems to be a house feature). Quite chewy wheat and clove notes. A swirl released some sourish banana. Soft banana flavours, clove - pretty much what you’d expect. Overall, very clean and a very fair attempt. (Draught at brewpub)

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale yellow. Typical weizenbier banana aroma. Sweet and soft with some light toffee flavour. Nicely drinkable with well structure malt. I like it!

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2004
With push coming to shove my least style of beer includes the wheat. A large generalisation I know but partly because I have a degree of wheat intolerance but more predominantly due the enjoyment of a more assertive style. So many so-called aussie wheats are poor substitutes for piss-poor lagers. This one unfortunately has more of the latter characters than some of the good Euro styles. Quite typically estery with pineapple and banana but just not a great one. I think, to be fair, that this was not tried in a reasonable order so that certain predecessors may have clouded my review

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2004
Draught, at Paddy’s Brewpub, Flemington, Australia.
This beer looks all the world like a larger. Amber with a bright, persistent white head. Bubblegum aroma and flavour, with all the other classic notes…banana and glove. (I was in the Eczematic school of sniffing on this evening).
The gathering: duff, eczematic, motelpogo, Spiesy, Sully and late arrival Linc.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2004
hey, not a bad kristall. was expecting a watery "american wheat" since it's so clear, but then all the right stuff was going on in the flavour - plenty of bubblegum, clove and just the right amount of banana (not OTT like JS colonial) and a decent malty body.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2004
Orange, banana, vanilla as mentioned by the others. Decent tasty hefe, I couldn't compare it to a traditional German draught version but it worked for me. Refreshing.
