COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The use of Aussie Stella hops are used to create a beer that’s got big tropical (and herbal) aromas and a sizeable bitterness playing with the flavours and body you might expect in a wheat beer. There are some sweet malt flavours in its cloudy yellow mix too, while the bitterness blends with a dryness to create what’s akin to a summer refresher on steroids.

Had it from bottle at jack rabbit winery. A very nice beer in a warm day, tastes somewhere between a pale ale and wheat beer, even though it’s a wheat beer. It uses Ella hops which is interesting, providing an aroma similar to galaxy. Not an outstanding beer but goes down well on a summers day. I would drink this again.

Tap @ The Taphouse. Light gold. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose. Tart wheat flavours backed up with some good dry, spicy hop notes. Went well with a bowl of mussels

Drank completely blind with respect to the style. Very powerful and refreshing. Some citrus and an absolutely wonderful lick of chalk and talcum powder - very kolsch-like in this respect. Could drink this all day.

Bottle from Slow Beer. Slightly hazy, pale straw, wheat characters are there (spice, clove, banana), but hidden under the hops with sweet passionfruit, citrus, floral. A really complex, interesting combination, liked it a lot.

KeefOz (837) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2013
330ml stubbie. Poured a cloudy golden straw colour with a two-finger white foamy head that slowly diminished and laced OK. Moderate to high carbonation with lots of small bubble trails. Aroma sweet with a hint of spice. Taste initally a bit spicy then thin/watery mid-palate followed by a very faint hops after-taste. Light body. An earthy and slightly acidic finish leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

330ml bottle from Warners at the Bay Bottle Shop. Lots of fluffy white foam as you expect from a wheat ale. Hazy amber colour with a fruity hop aroma that is not too bad. Clean and refreshing in the mouth and the flavour is quite good. A bit light on the palate but overall pretty good.

Maris (955) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 5/2/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy straw colour with a big head. Has quite a strong aroma of banana lolly, stone and tropical fruit, and a touch of yeast. The flavour has some typical wheat notes, with some spice and coriander, but also lots of pale ale fruitiness. There’s a decent bitter kick at the end, and it’s nicely carbed. A good, refreshing wheat beer.

Bottle from my wife. Very fruity. Aromas of citrus, banana, hints of coriander. Taste is sweet, slightly tart, with average length. Palate is lively, and medium bodied. Pale, with a frothy head.
