COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cloudy in appearance, aromatic and highly carbonated. Lightly hopped with our own Tettnanger hop flowers. You may notice “banana” aromas which is created by the special type of yeast used and the higher fermentation temperatures. This is balanced by a tart finish on the palate which is caused by the high percentage of Wheat Malt in the grain bill. You really must drink this one in the 500ml tall glasses specially designed for this beer to fully appreciate the creamy, white head and aromatics of the beer.

Pure bubble gum with pepper smell. Golden hazy pour. Bubble gum on the taste as well, ripe bananas, and a hint of spice. Good wheat beer. Very refreshing but a little sweet.

With sediment, poured a translucent golden brown colour with a thin white bubble head that retained well and produced filmy lacing. Medium to high carbonation. Aroma strongly of yeast. Taste initally of soft yeast followed by slight cloves and tart citrus tones. Low bitterness. Taste not what expected from a wheat beer. Light to medium body. Pleasant smooth finish.

A-- Poured a cloudy rusty color. Had a very short lived white head that became just a few clumps of white on the top of the beer. Not a really exciting look at all. Medium to high carbonation upon swirling the glass and getting the head back. S-- Banana, clove, and cinnamon. Very strong and ripe banana smell. T-- Strange to get a boozy taste right off the bat. Banana and clove also carry the taste but what is surprising is a very forward alcohol taste. Very carbonated taste. M-- High carbonation and a touch creamy, there is a bit of spice to this. Either cinnamon or some nutmeg that carry over some spiciness to this. Really bitter for a wheat. Not what I expected at all and the alcohol taste is more evident in the mouth. D-- A little too carbonated for my taste.

330ml bottle. Cloudy appearance with a creamy white head. A nice version of a hefeweizen.

Enjoyed a couple of these at the Red Hill Brewery matched with their Mussells on the menu. Very good Wheat beer and hard to beat fresh at the Brewery.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 13/10/2011. Pours a cloudy straw/yellow colour with a medium head. Has a typical sweet wheat beer aroma with banana most prominent. Tastes of banana, bubblegum, and lemon, with a quite sharp spicy, lemony finish. The body is quite thick. The merits of this one are clearly a matter of some debate on here, but I think it has a fair bit of personality and is pretty good.

Glass from brewery. Nice light colour, Crisp to taste, however strong fruit flavours are a little too sweet for my likes.

Bottle. Hazy golden amber pour with a loose, foamy white head that quickly diminishes to a lasting surface cover. Aroma is a little odd and not entirely pleasant, with notes of apple, banana, vinegar, spice and lemon. Flavour mirrors the aroma with the apple and lemon standing out plus a touch of sourness. Light, watery mouthfeel with high carbonation and a lingering bitter, slightly sour finish. Having never tried this before I can’t tell if my bottle was in less than great condition, but as it is this isn’t very good and definitely isn’t up to the standard of most of Red Hill’s other beers.

330mL as part of our Aussie blind tasting part 3. The pour on this one was quite bad: really no head to speak of, maybe some fizzy white detergent head could have been coaxed out of it, but for all practical purposes this is a beer, believe it or not, with a 1/5 for appearance. The pour was near hazy, brown, sickly urine colored with no head and some fizzy carbonation. Aroma is just so bad: expired honey if such a thing existed, old cereal, green apples, acetaldehyde, even something we decided was akin to molasses. Taste is just so odd that it is pretty much undrinkable: nasty oatmeal, vomit, nail polish remover. Gag reflex induced. I cannot give this over a 1/10 for taste. Not possible. I mean, this was a pretty bad tasting with some of our least favorite beers, mainly to prove a point that Cascade Light would still lose in a blind tasting. But this absolutely destroyed Cascade Light as worst beer from Australia.

Bottle. A solid example of your garden variety hefeweizen. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I like my hefeweizens to have something a bit more special.
