Classic German style Wheat Beer, perfect for a Summer's day. Brewed very simply from a 50/50 blend of malted barley and wheat. Lightly hopped with Hallertau and fermented with authentic Weiss Beer yeast for the perfect cloudy appearance. Light yet complex, with hints of banana and cloves.

Draft. Pours hazed yellow gold with a thin head. Plain wheaty base, low sweetness, low bitterness, and relatively mild yeast character. Fine, but a bit bland.

Nothing much on the nose. Slight hints of banana in the mouth, followed by a very lightly spicy finish. Thin and watery. Its refreshing and drinkable I guess but so is tap water.

330ml skittle-shaped bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a small white head. Bread, malt, bananas and cloves on the nose with a pleasant medium sweet taste and low bitterness. Disappointing watery palate however.

Hazy, starw colour. Good wheaty aroma with some slight sour notes that I like in a wheat beer. I get some good ester characters too, not toostrong but all in balance. Palate is medium with sourness and wheat flavour, refreshing and well balanced. Overall a nice beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden with a smallish hear. Not a good sign for the style. Wheat, citrus, clove and lemon. Thin bodied and a somewhat watery palate. Low carbonation.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle (though I think it is called Wharf Rd Wheat Beer now),pouring a slightly hazy organge with no head. Looks alarmingly like a glass of fanta. A typical wheat beer aroma, banana sweetness with a touch of orange and cloves. Carbonated and tart in the mouth, helping to disguise the sweetness. Flavours are quite subdued as well, which makes for a mellow and easy to drink wheat beer. Better than most of this style. Got an additional appearance mark (it neededit) for the cool bottle.

bozoNZ (777) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2008
330ml bottle - Bright clear golden but a disappointing lack of head of cloudiness? Slight bubblegum aromas with faint spices and almost a grassy hint. Nice flavours typical soft bana and spices with a subtle wheat sweetness. Nothing dominates but its all in there. Unfortunately the eyes tell you that this lacks some body - that aside its a nice drop.
