Bif (1496) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle- Pours a cloudy golden color with a small head that fades quickly to bits of lacing. Aroma of banana and clove with some yeast and grain in the background. tatse of banana, very little malt sweetness. Mild bitterness with a slightly sticky finish. Light body, quite smooth and prettdude. Failry average for the style.

Love the dead earwig comment by the rater below - can’t get any more "craft brewing" than insects in the bottle. Aside from feeling cheated that my bottle had no meat content, this was a pleasant surprise. The phrase "Australian wheat beer" has come to fill me with dread but this easily vaulted my modest expectations once I’d moved on from the dour appearance: unfiltered and cloudy enough but very spare with the head for a wheat beer. This might be the closest I get to a banana after Cyclone Yasi wiped out 90% of the Australian crop, so it was a bonus to get an aroma that screamed bananas. Maybe not real bananas, but banana milk shake syrup or similar, plus wheatsheaf. Nice full mouthfeel, with carbonation that just avoids being intrusive. Strong clove on the tongue. I knocked this back absurdly quickly on a 30C day. Good summer drinking if they can maintain batch consistency. (330ml bottle courtesy of a beer club the in-laws signed me up to as a birthday gift.)

Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 25/1/2011. Pours a cloudy light amber. Has a massive aroma of banana/banana lolly. The flavour is dominated by more sweet banana, which is nicely balanced by a touch of bitterness at the back. This one is actually quite pleasant and refreshing. My only beef is that there was what appeared to be a dead earwig floating on top when it was first poured (I’m dead serious, but I did a bit of a Bear Grylls and ignored this slightly unpleasant surprise).

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2011
Mix of banana and clove in the aroma with a little bit more straight wheat notes in the taste, pretty straightforward but drinkable.

mkel07 (3540) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
330ml bottle. Sweet ripe banana aromas mixed in with cloves give this beer a very sweet lolly aroma. Cloudy with a soft carpet of light white foam and a dull orange colour. Light and airy in the mouth and delivers a sweet punch to the taste buds. Could drink a few of these on a hot day.

Davros (1987) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Pours cloudy amber, dark for the style, small head. Aromas include wheat, sweet apple, banana and cloves. Aside from the sweet apple this hits the mark. Quite sweet though. Flavours mirror the aroma, with not so much of that apple character. Very easy-going. Carbonation is a little high for my liking.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2010
A bit clumsy and homemade. Feels like a layer of mild wehat beer flavours and fruit has been dropped over a fairly lager base beer. Pleasant enough but very one-dimensional. Still, hard to hate this beer.
