It pours cloudy yellow, billowing head. Has that funky Belgian yeast aroma. It’s very citrusy, doesn’t need the orange, tastes like a session Duvel. TedE (1481) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Good sweet wheat nose. Pale cloudy beer with big lasting head. Very active small bubbles. Fizzy soft drink palate with developing banana and pepper notes. Quite interesting. Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 1/12/2014. Pours a cloudy straw colour with a big white head which subsides a bit after a while. Has a light spicy aroma with hints of wheat and clove. Take a sip and it’s rather pleasing with sweet and tart citrus fruit, some distinct Belgian yeast and spicy notes and a hint of banana lolly. Has a slightly creamy palate with lively carbonation. Have seen this at Dan Murphy’s for a while now and thought it was time to sample. I’ve not found many brewers who make a good fist of a Belgian white but these guys have actually done a really good job. A pleasant surprise and will definitely try again if I’m looking for a bit of a break from Hoegaarden.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a large white head. Mild wheat, orange and pepper aroma. Very light-bodied. Quite dry with modest citrus notes and a pepper and clove finish. Refreshing. Not bad at all for a mystery brew. Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a light straw yellow with a thick and persisting white head. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of lemon, wheat, pepper and maybe a hint of clove. Taste is dominated by citrus (not all that lemony though) although some pepper comes through at the back end. Couldn’t detect any banana or bubblegum hefe characters at all. Crisp finish with a lightly spicy aftertaste. Not bad, but not a classic wheat beer. KeefOz (1916) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2013
poured a cloudy pale yellow colour with a two- to three-finger white foamy head that retained well and laced with lots of suds rings - looked like a wheat beer should. Very high carbonation with lots of small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of wheaten malt and as it warmed it became more spicy with aroma of cloves coming out. Taste very sweet then with cloves but no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth and light with a spicy finish. Refreshing. ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2013
Another mystery brew to don the shelves of Dan Murphy’s. Produces up a misty, pinewood yellow with a lot of floaties caught in suspension. High effervescence sees rise to a solind, lasting inch of foam atop that manages a convincing lace. Aroma of Lime Coola cordial, candied lemon peel, sherbet and wheat malt with a tangy tinge of cider vinegar. Quite sharp on the palate with an acrid herbal bitterness that is quite out of place but not entirely unpleasant. Lengthy citrus linger, tangy and sour with a balancing candyish sweetness. Wheaty, grainy mid-palate. Light in body but overall creamy in mouthfeel to give it roundness. Not demanding in any way. Quite a refreshing drop. Not bad.

330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Middle of the road wheat beer with a thin cloudy appearance, white head and familiar wheat beer flavours. Nice for a hot day.
