3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2012 Pot from the tap.Cloudy straw yellow. Nose is a bit of banana, slightly sweet and very yeasty. Taste is extremely yeasty with bits of banana from the nose and a lovely sweetness. A slightly hoppy taste on the mid palate, and the finish is all yeast. Reasonably good beer, but too yeasty for my liking.

this beer is freakin AWESOME.. if you like wheat/sweeter tasting beers I’d peg this as the mecca of wheat. I had this while visiting Melbourne from the U.S. and had 8 pints in 2 days...couldn’t get enough of it. If I ever make it back there I’ll definitely be having the Y&J Naked Ale
