In the bottle. Pours gold with a big bubbled white head. The aroma was slightly skunked. Fairyl sweet with a faint grainy wheat flavor. Has just a touch of cloves? Super clear and extremely filtered. Sadly, this stands out among most bottle shop offerings in this part of the world, taste-wise. strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2006
On tap at Opera Bar. Tasted a bit weird to me the first time, since filthmuppet supplied it with a slice of lemon. Second one tasted better without, but maybe a bit boring. In retrospect, perhaps the lemon wasn’t a bad idea after all, since the beer itself really did nothing for me beyond actually being a hefeweizen. Good thing i like hefeweizen i suppose. messymatt (36) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2006
Tastes like homebrew, so if you like homebrew you might like this, my homebrew is pretty bad I’ll sell you some if you like Redback. Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2006
Amber-yellow. Weird aroma; a sort of sour bitterness. Also sour tastes, fairly bland all in all. Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 (Bottle 34,5 cl) This beer is pure nostalgia to me. I remember having this in 1988 back at the Matilda Bay brew pub in Fremantle, when the beer was all new and exiciting. So how was the revisit?:

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small, off-white head. Vague wheat aroma with some yeast. Rather light-bodied, slightly sweet. Weak accents of fruit and yeast before a dry finish. Mostly resembles an American Wheat in style. Far from greatness, but thanks to highlandlad, for bringing back sweet memories. 140506
Bottled. Pale golden colour, not much head. Aroma is wheat and bitter hops (?), it’s quite special. Weak sour fruitiness too. Flavour is malts, wheat and hops with weak bananaish hints... Aftertaste is wheaty and fruity. Not the typical German Hefeweizen.... Rich carbonation. TBone (17786) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006

Golden color, small white head - this is more like Kristallweizen, not "Hefeweizen". Light sweet mango-banana aroma, some sourish notes too. Dry, grassy, quite strange - a bit witbier-like flavor. Even similarities to New Glarus Spotted Cow which I sampled today earlier. Very unusual wheat beer.
Sweet hop malt aroma. Clear amber yellow colour with fair head and lacing. Sweet malt flavour with hops. Fizzy palate. vanvenlo (1902) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2006
4 Oct 05 - Good citrus wheat hop aroma. Clear yelloq golden colour, good head and OK suds lacing. Big citrus hop flavour. Low biterness, light m outhfeel, lacks complexity or something, but easy drinking Tyler*Durden (72) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2006
Very tasty wheat beer...my second favorite Australian beer on tap (after Alpha Pale Ale, also by Matilda Bay). Is flavourful, with banana/clove. Very easy drinking and interesting wheat beer.
