Pours a hazy golden yellow with plenty of white head that laces the glass. Aroma of lemon and maybe a touch of coriander. Taste is crisp, carried by the slightly higher carbonation than I would expect. Sweet and a little yeasty with a slightly sour aftertaste. I like it a lot.

Fruity aroma, strong on melons. Slightly cloudy golden colour with good head. Very light fruity flavour, a bit like a fruit salad. Light body with medium to high carbonation.

Like a good wheat beer it packs a good head - and keeps it. Lemon colour with straw and wheat aroma. Nice malt on the sip and a very smooth vision. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M_Sack (364) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle. Lemon juice appearance, frothy but thin white head with some lacing. Immediate wheat aromas followed by spicy coriander and lime juice. Flavourless front palate leading to a wheaty, but uninteresting middle. Nice honey towards the end followed by a pleasing but not strong bitterness. Refreshing but not exciting.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Cloudy tan, thin head. The aroma has a touch of yeastiness, mellow coriander. Balanced sweetness, light coriander, lightish body, a little yeastiness, gentle wheaty acidity. Not perfect, and its delicate balance could be confused for lightness, but its decent wit.

Bottle 33 cl at Royal Albert Hotel, Sydney, on July 18, 2013.
BB 10 May 13.
Hazy pale golden color, fluffy white head. Sweet, banana, citrus, fresh taste. Dry, herbal, banana aftertaste. Fizzy high co2 mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness. Sweet, malty, spicy, citrus scent.

LesArgen (199) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2013
Tang orange concentrate, pepper, rust, cardboard, cheese and even a little milk waft up from the glass. The aroma is as dry as a chip with plenty of flavours to keep you sniffing for ages. There’s a milkiness to the palate too, while the flavour is predominantly orange citrus with hints of pear and more of that rusty flavour on the sides of the tongue. Drinking it was a little like being in a bar full of gangsters: I was expecting something terrible to happen, but it never did. A rollicking experience.

KeefOz (881) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2012
Poured a translucent light golden colour with a three-finger white sudsy head that collapsed a bit and initally produced a little suds-like lacing. High carbonation - lots of small bubble trails. Aroma of sweet malts. Tatse smooth and malty. Medium body. A beer to consume while chilled as it didn’t take long to warm and give a short slightly sour finish.

Pours light golden colour with white head. Sweet taste, low bitterness. Taste is a bit light on, but enjoyable beer.

A-- Cloudy pineapple color, almost opaque. Lots of small bubbles with this and a cotton ball white head. Got a good finger and a half of head and sticky lacking and nice sized bubbles in the head. S-- Faint orange and pineapple in this, a little dry so a bit of honey in this as well. Not nearly as orange as other types in this. Smells tropical after it gets warm and banana does come out after warming T-- Pineapple and orange in this but not as much orange as others. Has a bit of a sweet quality to this. Curacao and Coriander are very soft and almost hidden in this. Once it warms up lemon appears more. M-- Finishes quite dry. Also finishes a little sour after it warms up a bit. Well carbonated and fairly lively to me. Does get a bit of a pucker from the lemon but would like a little less pucker in this and more honey. D-- Not that great after it gets warm. Becomes too sour at that point. Cold it is pretty good. Like how it is more of a tropical version of a Wit. Good for a change of pace but not sessionable as it would get tiresome quickly and once warm this beer becomes too sour and too tropical. Worth trying and would be interested in trying on tap.
