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.

jmgreenuk (5841) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, a little herby, some hops. The flavour is light bitter with a light tropical fruit citrus palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat light all around. Not sure what the brewer wanted but I don’t think this was it.

Very pale with smooth light head. Distinct taste that is very pleasant. Easy to drink especially as I had it (poured from bottle into a chilled glass). Not usually a fan of Prickly Moses but this impressed me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brilliant wheat bix have nothing on this wheat brew. It is so satisfying to rock up at a new place for dinner and have the opportunity to get the palate still mutated by such a refreshing taste that is dry and tart with an exciting hop aroma. Great work "Ella" get hopping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone by Rox

Name might be apt as the Ella hops give a sharp kick on first taste. Still pleasant. Stone fruit follow the nice aroma. 1.3std drinks. 330ml. 5.8% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
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.
