Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne. This is styled a "Single Hop (Mosaic) Belgian Fruit (Orange) Witbier". Yup. I expect nothing less from the styles coming out of Red Duck.
Pours a pale, pale yellow colour, very light indeed with some hazing. Body weight is fluid and a little thin, topped with a full and foamy head of white. Lace is solid and streaky. Some carbonation.
Zesty entry on the nose. Lemon myrtle sweet-spicy-acidic characters, extremely bright and fresh. Orange peely witbier notes, with a spicy, herbal overtone. Lovely!
Light, clean and crisp on the entry to the palate. Wheaty pale malt and a touch of sweetness. The orange comes back again mid-palate, spicy and bright before moving to a piquant finish leavened with a zesty lemon character that stays bright. It fades a little towards the finish (at 4.2% this isn't surprising), but it stays exceedingly drinkable. For the same reason the feel is very light.
Overall though, this is a cracking beer, and potentially (and surprisingly) one of Red Duck's best. Supremely drinkable stuff: a beer of which I would be happy drinking many bottles.

Pours a pale straw witbier colour, cloudy with white foamy head. Looks nice.
Smells champagney, and dry, with fruity notes and plenty of spice. Apple/pear mix with a touch of cedar wood, oak and cinnamon. Not bad.
Chardonnay on the palate, or at least that buttery French oak character and a touch of tartness putting me in mind of grape skins. Bit of pepper, with cinnamon, clove and a good blend of banana and pear fruit on there as well. Dry overall though, which is a bit of a shame, but quite nice.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly full. Possibly bitty from all the cloudiness; slight touch of carbonation cuts through. Not bad.
Not a bad drop, but not quite Belgian, or particularly fruity. Decent enough.
