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.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of banana, lemon, coriander, and clove. Flavor of lemon, coriander, grass, banana, orange, and wheat.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Very pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of orange and faint coriander with a bit of light spice as well. Flavour is well-rounded, starts off with a slightly sweet wheaty backbone, before the palate is taken over by orange citrus and light coriander near the finish. Nice wit-style brew, but is a bit watery.

blipp (8882) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 1, 2015
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.

Light, hazy blonde with slight lemon and honey notes on the nose. Medium boded with wheat spice finish. Quite light but clean.

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.

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.

floydian1 (1435) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 5, 2012
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.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2004
very clear yellow (strangely they boast about the cloudiness on the label). bready, light, over-clean, wheaty acidity and fruity hops combining surprisingly well in the finish. not bad, drinkable, but kind of watery. for a brewery that cold-conditions all their beers it seems a bit weird they don't make a lager. all their beers are somewhere in between ale and lager, easy drinkin, smooth but forgettable (exactly the way winesnobs like their beers - no coincidence they're brewed at a winery).

AKA Baroona Weiss beer Light gold in colour with small white hea. Wheak wheat aroma, heaps of corriander and spice. Thin body
