Very refreshing hazy golden coloured spiced wheat beer with a taste of lightly roasted malts and citrus fruits. The use of unmalted wheat in addition to the usual barley malt, imparts a quenching tartness with a slight nuttiness. The addition of orange and coriander seasoning, as well as noble hops, adds acidity and a faintly astringent dryness to the finish. A full strength wheat beer.

Bottle. Pale hazy yellow body with an average sized white head. Sweet, with coriander seed the dominant aroma and taste. A somewhat watery body.

Bottle, 4.3%ABV. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheaty with oranges, vanilla and coriander seed. Quite watery. Taste is slightly sweet with some spices at the end. A bit empty and that tang that can make Wits so refreshing is barely there.

Wheat aroma, wheat color, wheat taste. Wheat, wheat, wheat. It ain’t terrible, nor is it great. It is a wheat beer, believe it or not.

330ml bottle. Very pale and clear with a light straw colour and a thin small head that is not consistent with a wheat beer. Cloves, banana and bubblegum in the aroma which is more in line with the style. Light and airy with a dry finish.

Davros (3183) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2010
Pours straw with a small rapidly fading head that somehow manages to look like floating bits of chalk. Aroma fails horribly. Seems to be a mix of cider and cheap white wine with some stale grainy malt in the background. In a partially redeeming note, there are some hints of orange peel and wheat. Flavours are totally dominated by the afore-mentioned stale grainy malt which, again, threatens to overwhelm the subtle wheat and orange peel. Very watery, with no where near enough carbonation.

Good carbonation on top a straw coloured pour aroma mild perfume wheat sugar spice banana,flavour bitter green banana malted wheat sweetness along with the barley has a bite the bitter makes it unbalanced seems overdone,the finish is all bitter knocks out the other flavours

Bottle 330ml. Interesting beer. Aroma is citrusy with orange, and also ginger. Flavour is sweet and sour, nicely balanced. It has an oily texture, with fizzy carbonation. Yellow in colour, with a frothy white head that doesn’t quite last all the way.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2009
Draught at Grumpy’s Green, Melbourne. Pours an extremely pale yellow with small white head. Aroma and flavour predominately of wheat, citrus and a touch of clove. Very thin bodied and low bitterness. A poor wit.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2009
...bottle. Well, wasn’t impressed. Had some malt and citrus on the nose. Flavor was slight wheat malt, and just the smallest hint of clove, if any. Finished weak, dry, not enough creaminess. Was alright, but not that great.

madquacker (1143) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2009
Very strange yellow sherbert colour with no head. Strained pineapple juice with high sugar. None of the complexity of a Hoegaarden.
