COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Classic German style Wheat Beer, perfect for a Summer's day. Brewed very simply from a 50/50 blend of malted barley and wheat. Lightly hopped with Hallertau and fermented with authentic Weiss Beer yeast for the perfect cloudy appearance. Light yet complex, with hints of banana and cloves.

Light, hazy blonde with slight lemon and honey notes on the nose. Medium boded with wheat spice finish. Quite light but clean.

330ml bottle - Bright clear golden but a disappointing lack of head of cloudiness? Slight bubblegum aromas with faint spices and almost a grassy hint. Nice flavours typical soft bana and spices with a subtle wheat sweetness. Nothing dominates but itís all in there. Unfortunately the eyes tell you that this lacks some body - that aside itís a nice drop.

Hazy, starw colour. Good wheaty aroma with some slight sour notes that I like in a wheat beer. I get some good ester characters too, not toostrong but all in balance. Palate is medium with sourness and wheat flavour, refreshing and well balanced. Overall a nice beer.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Very pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of orange and faint coriander with a bit of light spice as well. Flavour is well-rounded, starts off with a slightly sweet wheaty backbone, before the palate is taken over by orange citrus and light coriander near the finish. Nice wit-style brew, but is a bit watery.

Bottle (though I think it is called Wharf Rd Wheat Beer now),pouring a slightly hazy organge with no head. Looks alarmingly like a glass of fanta. A typical wheat beer aroma, banana sweetness with a touch of orange and cloves. Carbonated and tart in the mouth, helping to disguise the sweetness. Flavours are quite subdued as well, which makes for a mellow and easy to drink wheat beer. Better than most of this style. Got an additional appearance mark (it neededit) for the cool bottle.

eczematic (1307) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2004
very clear yellow (strangely they boast about the cloudiness on the label). bready, light, over-clean, wheaty acidity and fruity hops combining surprisingly well in the finish. not bad, drinkable, but kind of watery. for a brewery that cold-conditions all their beers it seems a bit weird they don't make a lager. all their beers are somewhere in between ale and lager, easy drinkin, smooth but forgettable (exactly the way winesnobs like their beers - no coincidence they're brewed at a winery).

floydian1 (827) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 5, 2012
330ml skittle-shaped bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a small white head. Bread, malt, bananas and cloves on the nose with a pleasant medium sweet taste and low bitterness. Disappointing watery palate however.

Nothing much on the nose. Slight hints of banana in the mouth, followed by a very lightly spicy finish. Thin and watery. Itís refreshing and drinkable I guess but so is tap water.

Bottle. Pours golden with a smallish hear. Not a good sign for the style. Wheat, citrus, clove and lemon. Thin bodied and a somewhat watery palate. Low carbonation.
