UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 prob my new fav beer. tried in bottle from swords select. very hoppy and fruity - passionfruit and pineapple, without the spiceness i dislike in wheat beers. morish. wasnt a fan of the appearance though. but i guess taste and aroma are the most impotant and they were extremely impressive!!

On tap at Cookied. Great character. Aromas of tropical fruit, caramel, apple, hint of nuts. Taste is bitter, long length. Palate is velvety, medium body. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

330ml bottle from Slow Beer. A bit more colour to this wheat beer than most others as it pours a heavy amber colour with a thick head of off white foam rather than fluffy pure white foam. There is a lot going on in the aroma with plenty of grapefruit and passionfruit. Full bodied with a hoppy taste and resinous aftertaste. There is no reason to keep this beer secret in Victoria or anywhere else.

330ml Bottle. Pours a wonderful hazy golden, straw colour. Nice bold citrusy, fruity aroma. Has a subtle fruity taste and strong finishing bittterness. A slight wheat flavour present too. Medium mouthfeel and quite a dry, almost a hint of alcohol at the finish. Not exactly what i was expecting, but would def recommend getting a bottle to try.

Lovely hazy gold colour, white head. Fruit aroma, wheaty. Bitter wheat flavour - is that a touch of pepper? Nice, leaves a sort of tart, dry after taste. Pretty good, I like.

Bottle at Ølbaren - Thanks to Christian. Cloudy golden - white head. Nice yellow flowery. Zesty bitterness. Cammomile. Light malty. Light wheaty acid. Light body. Super fresh and nice hoppy. Lovely.

Bottle, 8C. Hazy gold with a white head. Smells like grapefruit juice. Maybe a little wheat, pepper and chile too, but big on grapefruit. Thinnish body with slight breadiness. Fairly high carbonation. Taste has just a touch of tropical fruit and light bread, lots of grapefruit and some spices. One track, but very refreshing indeed.

Pours a light cloudy golden with fine white head.

Nose is lemony, slight grapefruit, strawberry, banana.

Taste is more lemon, grapefruit, some pine and a bit of sweetness from the malts

Overall not too bad. This bottle is now around 10 months old, so the hop aroma and flavour have surely diminished. Regardless, this is a decent beer and I’m looking forward to more things with Vic Secret in them, as the flavour profile is nice.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Bottle from maneliquor. Pours a golden with a nice white head. Citrus, pine and nutmeg in the nose. Taste has a citrus hop bitterness. Quite carbonated making the hops explode on to the palate. Bitterness isnt really there due to the over carbonation. Solid beer
