Not the cloudy appearance that I tend to expect/like in a wheat beer. There was some yeast sediment but it was quite clear. An estery nose led to a slight banana flavor with a tingly and subtle citrusy mouthfeel. It includes coriander and orange but I could not detect the coriander and could barely taste/feel the orange citrus. Overall, an inoffensive wheat beer but nothing terribly special.

KeefOz (1610) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2016
Poured a clouded straw colour with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma softly of spice/coriander and sweet fruit (orange, banana). Taste of spice/coriander and sweet fruit/banana. Light body. Smooth, slightly fizzy mouthfeel and with subtle spices on the finish. Typical wheat beer style.

330ml bottle into glass. Slight sour nose. Cloudy golden beer with thin white head. Medium carbonation. Light spritzy mouthfeel. Creamy, sour, fruity. Finish is a bit vegetal. Its OK.

Straw coloured, slightly cloudy pour with a thick white head. Orange, yeast, spice on the nose. Taste is sweet citrus, bready, a little spice.

Another possible dud from a variety 6 pack from this maker - on special so maybe the reason. Light honey aroma, very cloudy, no head, super sweet so I am thinking unfermented sugar in the bottle. Still, can get the picture what it would be like if I had a good one, and it is typical of wheat beer style which to me is not very nice anyway.

Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2014
Estery and fruity aroma. Cloudy golden colour with ok head. Very sweet easy drinking fruity flavor with nice finish. Nice body with good carbonation.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden with a small foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet citrus aromas of orange peel. Taste is laced with some coriander and spice, and some unpleasant phenolic taste. Some malt sweetness.

Muggus69 (2192) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2014
330ml bottle Pale straw body, small dense head. Light aroma; wheat cereals, spice and citrus peel. Good carbonation, light body, dry body Cereal malt base make way for notes of aromatic spice, and citrus. Mildly biter finish, a touch of tartness. Not a bad wit

Tap @ brewery. Cloudy golden colour with frothy white head that dissipates to medium lacing. Coriander seed, malt and a touch of citrus on the nose. Slight orange peel through the palate, along with wheat and a touch of malt sweetness.
