From a 330ml bottle on 31/3/2013. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a small head. Has a touch of bubblegum and banana on the nose. There’s more banana and bubblegum in the flavour, with a decent lemony tang, and a mild bitterness at the back. The carbonation is true to style. Nothing remarkable but solid enough. imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours near clear hazed bright yellow straw with minor white head ANC minimal lace. Light body. Zesty carbonation light bubblegum, cloves and grains finishes light sweet and refreshing. Clean crisp. Light herbal hop character WilleLW (273) - Lund, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2013
Clear golden colour with a white head. Smell of malt, bread and some wheat with some sweet yeast. Taste of banana, wheat, some malt with some sweetness. Also some sweet taste of caramel. Quite common "wheat beer taste", nothing too special. Good creamy body with medium carbonation. KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Poured a clear pale amber with a one- to two-finger bright white dense foamy head that diminished slowly to a few millimetre thick cap and laced Ok. Carbonation lively, high and medium to coarse. Aroma mildly of cloves. Taste is of very sweet sugar with low cloves and then rather bland with no spices and no banana; low bitterness. Light body. Crisp, clean and smooth with a strong sweetness and moderately strong cloves on a short finish. Not a Hefeweizen, more of a Kristallweizen. This was a good beer but looks like the ’big boys’ have changed the formulae in recent times. Bif (2245) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma is fairly mild with banana, wheat and a bit of spice. Nice taste of wheat with a mild bit of banana and fruit. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth and refreshing. Nice beer, doesn’t have a heavy feel goes well with meals or the Aussie weather.

One of a kind. A good beer for hot weather. If on tap, adding a slice of lemon doesn’t make you appear like a tosses, more someone who knows what he likes. By bottle, you can drop in a slice but it can over power the individual flavour of the beer. Keep a few in fridge for summer. DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Well this is a surprise. Forced into Walkabout to watch extra time and not expecting anything decent. But this is. An Australian wheat beer. Who'd have thought?

Bottle- fruity aroma with creamy mouthfeel. A good interpretation of a traditional German style wheat beer.

Bottle. Big wheaty notes, a spicy edge, touch of banana and dry, yeasty finish. Not sure if this is ’true to style’, but I enjoyed it. blackbock (132) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2012
(botle) Poured a slightly hazy yellow. Not bottle conditioned, so must be protein haze. Strong phenolic odour. Wheaty taste. Not much character to speak of at all really.
