Murray’s Whale Ale is a refreshing wheat beer with a twist. Its high percentage of malted and unmalted wheat and aromatic late hop profile gives a unique take on a session strength ale. A classic light body, creamy mouthfeel and refreshing citris flavour. This is balanced with assertive late hopping, giving a fresh, light tropical fruit aroma and cleansing dry finish.

Murray’s Whale Ale is light gold in colour and lightly filtered to give it a sparkling appearance.

Summer in a glass!

The Whale Ale has a very important place in my heart. I have had some great beer moments with the Whale and even Murray’s to say that. A very clean, crisp, easy drinking beer. Pleasent aroma, looks great, taste is refreshing and clean. I couldn’t and would’t fault anything about my beloved Whale.

This beer is great if you get a good one. The one in front of me has been holding about 8mm of head with lacing down the glass, cloudy as f**k with a nice smooth feel in the mouth and tons of great flavour. I have not tried other beers based off an American style wheat beer and do not really get into the Belgium style Whitbeers, but a good bottle of this is totally moresome and this has now become my main quaffing beer. Unfortunately I have bought quite a few of them that taste like those that others have reviewed here (thin, sour, over gassed etc.) I have emailed the guys at Murrays regarding this because they have a nice beer that has been let down by consistency problems. I hope they can get this right because this beer could earn itself a much higher score from everyone if they could shake these problems.

330ml bottle. Pours a clear, bright amber, with a large, foaming white head. This lasts for some time, creating quite decent lace. The aroma combines fresh floral notes with faint cookie dough and some coriander - an odd yet interesting mixture. Quite strong spicy hops start it off, with a delightful hint of lemon and coriander present too. This becomes quite strong moving into the middle of the beer, creating an almost witbier-like flavour. The finish is quite sweet, somewhat like a weizen, but with cinnamon and clove hints lurking in there as well. To start, I found this quite an odd beer, but the further I got through the glass the more it grew on me. A very complex and interesting beer indeed.

A cracking summer ale with a lovely hoppy, fruity aroma and a pleasant tang on the tongue. Could drink it all night.

Carbonic acid gas is high. That is most thing that I don’t like. Except that, everything is enough all.

Draught at Beer Deluxe, Melbourne. Hazy golden with a medium white head. Great spicy aroma and flavour of clove, coriander, summer fruit, yeast and wheat. Solid malt backbone for a wit, not over the top and makes this extremely quaffable. Hoppy bitterness and more fruit and spice in the finish. Excellent beer.

Bottle 330ml at BeerDeLuxe. Well balanced, but not very intense. Aromas of honey, caramel, and biscuit. Sweet, with light bitter notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a pillowy head.
