bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2005
Dull, just cloudy, pale lemon coloured with a decent white head that almost hung around for the distance. Aroma of lemon and zest. Some banana in the taste, pear, medium body and a watery finish. I am not a big fan of wheat beers and this beer did nothing to help the cause, I found it pretty boring really. vanvenlo (1886) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
Dec 2004 - Has a yeasty vegemite aroma, but lacks fruit. Cloudy yellow-gold with a good head. Strange earthy flavour but not unpleasant with good fruit. Good medium mouthfeel and a pleasant finish.

Bottled. Muddy yellow, little head for a hefeweizen. Aroma of lemon and malt. Sweet and softly malty with almost no esters or banana character. Low bitterness. Too streamlined and neutral. Stew41 (2027) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 4, 2005
Pours a big fizzy head that hangs around for 5 minutes. Bright yellow in the glass, could be mistaken for a pale larger. Not particularly cloudy despite the claims on the label. Slightly strange nose, seems neutral at first but has a medicinal feel with a confectionary edge. That said, I used to think Hoegaarden had a similar nose. Now I concede I may be drinking this a tad too cold but the flavour profile is subdued (at best). Some hefe flavours are trying to poke through (banana and a little spice) but an excessively fizzy structure makes it difficult initially but it does settle somewhat. A bit disappointing and not really up to par with the other beers. Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2005
Aroma: hint cidery, a little pear and a tiny bit of banana. Apperance: cloudy yellow with a bubbly lasting head. Flavour: sweet pear and banana with a hint of wheat. Palate: great medium mouthfeel.

Yeasat aroma with a hint of malt. Cloudy yellow colour with fair head. Uneventful flavour with hint of malt. Fizzy palate. yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2005 Retasted 04/02/2005. 500ml bottle from Malthouse Wellington.
Murky gold appearance with a big white head releases a citrus, spice and yeast aroma, background sulphur notes. nice tart flavour but the wheat taste is a little too grainy for my liking. Light body.
Better than my last effort on this one, but I’m still not a fan of this one. I’m sure the weiss beer dunkel was a good one, but obviously this was more popular as the dunkel got the axe. DiscoForever (71) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2004 Left to warm to room temperature (today was a bitterly cold day anyway) then poured. Massive, foamy and rich head - looks great. Colour is a cloudy, murky pale yellow. A fruity aroma of limes, lemons & rockmellon underneath, with a tart hint of vinegar and yeasty smokiness. Taste is a big tangy banana hit with the tingly and satisfying medium fizz. It's a taste you want to chew over. Aftertaste: fruit and the slight tartness of cooked banana (say in banana cake or on grill) with gentle yeastiness lingering. Makes you want more. This is a refreshing beer with good flavour - will try again in warmer months with blue cheese. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2003
Quite a fruity style and one that will be good to drink in the coming summner months. A good golden cloud showing bottle conditioning and a crisp white head. It is quite fruity on the nose and similiarly when consumed. The seetness level seemed fine and the balance quite good. Agree that it is a bit like the JS seasonal beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 3, 2003
cloudy golden colour, poured with a big head, white and fluffy. Fruity taste. More of a summer beer.
