highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2005
Moderate summer session wheat beer. A pale imitation of the best of the German brews but its still better than 95% of the beers in most Australian pubs. The recipe has changed over the years and regrettably the current incarnation is blander than ever. Pale gold colour with a decent head. Subtle aroma with faint banana and clove notes. Light-bodied and quenching. Flavour profile seems to be much diminished from the early days. Its refreshing, with little or no finish. (Bottle)

ALLOVATE (2977) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2004
Another beer to fall to the mass corporate monster. This beer used to be an unpasteurised, Hefe-weizen. Now almost resembling a typical Australian lager, it joins the blandness of the mainstream. Crystal clear yellow gold, honey- lemon like aroma with a short lacey head. Taste is in the background, slight sweetness and short clove like spice. Sessional but undemanding.

Hmright (101) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Bottle. Off yellow color. Small head, nice sweet smell. Not so much on the hef taste. Still an enjoyable beer to drink, just not up to the other wheat beers ive tasted.

Stew41 (1966) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 2, 2004
Light gold, almost light brown in the glass. Did look quite largerish. Ok head hangs around a while. Nose is true to type with some spice and clove, although a little subtle. Palate is ok - I can see the wheat beer character trying to emerge very early with some nice spicy and sweet notes but just fades to a thin, no descript finish. Ive seen worse examples but this is no excuse to not chase the real thing.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle: (would call it a krystal- rather than a hefe-) Poured crystal clear light gold with a large white head of medium bubbles. Subtle banana and spice aroma, some salty mussels-in-wine, and background spinach and rocket. Taste was quite lagery for a wheat. Flavour watery wheaty flavour, finishes with some sweet lemon. Fills the mouth reasonably, but is a little thin and watery. Finishes quite dry.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2004
Pours very pale yellow clear with medium-high carb. Lacks aroma, bit of banana but not much. Similar flavour, very subtle banana, clove and bubblegum. A little too bland, and thin in feel for my tastes.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Finally, an Australian pub beer approaching respectability. Golden amber color with a medium thick, off white head. Banana and clove aroma, wheaty. Taste is sweet clove and wheat maltiness. Pleasurable. Sampled at Di Biers pub in Melbourne, Australia.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2004
Plae Golden colouring with a nice head. Banana\Spice-type aroma. Wheat-honey flavour. Normally gets served at bars with a slice of lemon - in which I recommend.

A very nice wheat beer. I must say that some good beers come out of Perth. Drink it whenever I am in WA.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2004
Golden coloured, slight haze from wheat. fair head. Caramelized aroma, some citrus hops. flavour is slightly grainy wheat with some refreshing tartness. cloying honeyish sweetness. i am sure that theyve changed their recipe, it was never that sweet in my previous tastings
