i really love this beer. i had a six pack which i drank over a week or so. i found the aroma and taste to be very unusual and attractive. i finally decided that it smelled and tasted of "musk sticks". weird - i know. but very australian!

Stubby from a six pack Pours pale straw with a prickly effervescence and a fleeting white head. Citrus aromas precede a light honey note, sweet almost a sparkling wine. Bright mouthfeel and the light malt and honey shine through leading to a tart finish. Interesting beer, quite different to other wits.

Bottle - Pour a pale straw with puffy white head. Aroma is quite faint at first I thought it was quite like a pale ale, but I was picking up more of a light honey aroma. The mouthfeel is quite effervescent without being too carbonated. Mild flowery hop taste with a citrusy aftertaste. I really like this!

Cloudy light yellow appearance, very fitting for a white beer. Aroma is wheat, almost sweet. Light wheat flavour. Definetely a white beer, and a good one at that

Had this at the Beer & Brewer expo. Am a big fan of the White Rabbit Dark Lager, so had mixed expectations beforehand. Very nice ale, can taste the honey but does not overpower the beer at all. Snuck back many times for more.

330ml bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow, with a small, fading head. The added honey itself is present on the nose, and seems to bring out some sweet citrus characteristics as well. Initially citrus hops abound, moving into a nice coriander flavour. As it continues, the honey asserts itself a little more, and does create a delightful mouthfeel. This is a bit of an odd one. It is not as overt as a typical witbier, but is instead quite subtle. I suspect this is the moderating influence of the honey, reigning in some of the more dominant witbier characteristics. It does seem a little understated, yet I quite enjoyed it, and I certainly believe it to be well worth trying.
