Good appearance and nice strong flavour, yet for some reason its quite difficult to drink more than one or two. Just doesn't sit right. bfgill (120) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2003
I just dont see the appeal for this beer, i found it thin and watery (in the stub). On the otherhand the citrus flavours overpowered it and make me think of cider. not pleasant. cheers farmboy (218) - Barwon Heads, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2003
I really, really enjoy this beer whether it's in summer or the cooler months. The thing I like about it is you can taste it right from when it hits your tongue to long after it slides down your throat. Winchester (75) - Struggle Town NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2003 A quite enjoyable beer. The wheat taste is ever present, and makes for easy drinking. Distinctive. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2003
This tastes much better from the tap than the bottle but the real original was even better than both.Some taste of banana and a tart finish.

For those who don't know a Redback is an Australian spider with a, er, red back. It is poisonous and its favourite habitat is under the toilet seat in country outhouses. What does that have to do with a German style wheat beer? Well, it er, um, has, you know, I mean.......I don't bloody know. It has a thin head over a light body, nose is clearly estery with banana but with a metallic note. It is a bit too effervescent for my taste and the flavour, while typical of a German wheat is understated. A funnel web would have more bite. PEAK (14) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2003
A great west australian wheat beer. Looks as good as it tastes. philb (20) - Wangaratta, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2003
This is a beer that you will drink in place of your (now out of stock) smoked beef jerky.
The aroma is fairly subtle, but the smokey taste is quite unique to any beer I've yet tried. Nowhere is there a hint of sweetness (which I also like), and I almost wish it were 'chewable'. I'd say that the taste of this beer would totally overshadow any meat consumed.
Nice dry aftertaste also. Break out the jerky (or biltong if you're from South Africa)! ultrasonix (15) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2003
A different taste compared to alot of australian brews. Not being a big stout drinking i find myself comparing to guiness and other such drops. Smooth and rich and most disirable after a red meat meal. Orlan (25) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2003
Im remembering it from a few years ago in these ratings - Not as good now. Nice bottle - Good on tap This is a good Aussie beer that actually tastes Different.
