3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I initially view this beer with some skepticism mainly because of the masturbatorial blurb on the back. Putting all that aside, I was pleasantly surprised that a mainstream brewer gave us this. Pale straw colour, hazy with a persistent white head. Aromas of sour lemon predominate with just a twinge of herb. Full, sherbety carbonation with flavours of ripening banana, lemon peel and maybe a lick of orange juice. This is a tangy, refreshing ale and a rather good summery six pack. Just ignore the marketing wank on the label.
Quite a bland wheat beer that left me with a bit of soapyness that dragged the numbers down. Very light in colour and cloudy, but little flavours on the palate. Roccoco (1) - NEW ZEALAND - JUL 2, 2013 does not count
How many of you know to gently agitate a Hefe Weizen to reactivate the sediment that has settled since bottling?
Comments like ’no aroma or flavour’ give you away.

Mild corriander and spice aroma. Staw yellow in colour with thin white head. Crisp spicy flavour, short bitterness with citrusy finish. mkel07 (6261) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2013
330ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. White head that settles quickly, well carbonated, not as cloudy as some wheat ales I have had. Citrus peel and peppery coriander in the aroma. Medium bodied and quite pleasant despite all the controversy this brand has caused amongst craft beer lovers in NZ /Australia. Pdubyah (772) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 23, 2013
Gak. There is no redeeming this dog pile, it’s thin, tasteless, an abomination and whoever is responsible needs to give themselves an uppercut. Avoid at any cost.

What can I say? Aroma is minimal, Appearnace looks like cat’s urine, everything else is a complete failure. It really is a rubbish beer, and the blurb is total lies. Quote: "Someone should make a craft beer you can actually drink" Craft beer in NZ is exceptional quality and some real champs are being produced. This is just a pathetic example of a big crap brewery trying to muscle in on the little guys. P.S. Leave Emersons alone you a#holes.
