From Slowber. No BB.

Pours a dark-ish straw, head is white and very coarse. Clingy sheet lace.

Aromas are of yeast, wheat, hops, cough syrup.

Taste is tart at once, watery in the middle, and hop driven at the back. The hops seem to be from a different beer. Hint of lemons, grapefruit, sherbert.

Mouthfeel light and well carbonated.

All in all , seems to sit between styles of wit and hoppier, say, APA. And uncomfortably so.

Pours a straw colour, lots of haze that makes it almost opaque. White, foamy head, sticks around nicely. Good-looking wheat beer.

Spicy and slightly phenolic on the nose, with hints of green apple and maybe a touch of POR from somewhere? OK, but nothing special.

Simple palate again, slightly dry and slightly spicy. Not a lot of hops, but a bit of spice. OK.

Bitty texture, quite dry. Decent.

Not a bad wheat beer, but I kind of expected more. Prickly Moses can be quite hit and miss, and this has elements of both. It looks great but doesn't really deliver much beyond subdued, typical wheat beer notes.

Pours hazy gold amber with a small head.
Fruity, floral and spicy hops on the nose, also some lemon/peach.
Reasonably hoppy flavours too, spicy and grassy notes mainly. Also some biscuit-like malt and soft wheat.
Needs more carbonation!
Pretty solid effort.

On-tap at GABS. This is a pale wheat ale brewed with Australian Stella hops and lemon rinds.

Pours a pale lemon yellow hue, with a light body riddled with thick haze. Fine ring of white foam forms the head. No visible carbonation. Looks decent enough, if not terribly exciting.

Nose is earthy and gritty, with yeast characters coming through and a sweetness which melds with the lemon rinds to give a lemon butter sort of character. Eh.

Earthy, gritty entry on the palate again, with a character which is almost reminiscent of Pride of Ringwood, except that I know otherwise. Finish is pleasantly clean at least, but it's very light all over, throughout the palate and in the feel.

I mean, it's drinkable enough. It's just really quite boring.
