White Rabbit White Ale, I surprised myself when I noticed after getting a cheap 6 pack of this that I haven't yet reviewed this and its brother even though I have had both on several occasions. As I recall the Dark Ale is a better brew, but hey my memory's become fuzzy after years of drinking beers... Cheers!

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Chimay chalice.

A: An excellent cloudy pale straw body with a pure white half centimetre head greets me. This is exactly what one would expect from a Witbier, spot on.

S: Big chunky cider apples, coriander and orange zest. White Ale has a real love affair with apple Esters. That being said the aroma as a whole is a bit muted and light, though detectable, hopefully it can throw up some heady Wit flavours.

T: As noted above that apple Ester is the biggest feature of this light Wit, almost like I'm drinking a cider. There are notes of coriander and orange zest as well. Mid-palate there's grainy note as well. Finishes on a light orange bitterness.

M: Mouthfeel is good, mid to light bodied, with a creamy (but slightly excessive, i.e. burpy) carbonation.

D: Interesting enough to make it a decent summer beer, though it could use a smidge more flavour intensity, this is nonetheless a good effort for an Aussie Wit. Plus it's bottle-conditioned, with yeast floating around having a great time in my glass, as it should be. Would I get it again? At $15 a 6 pack, heck yes, in summer though... I would have preferred to have gotten my mittens on the Dark Ale as I remember it being bolder and tastier, next time Dark Ale, next time.

Food match: This is a salad brew through-and-through. I recommend the salad Niçoise or a classic Caesar salad.

Okay, so I am in Sydney and trying to absorb as much of the local culture as I can in my time here. I bought this at Fine Wines in George Street by the Four Seasons.

Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with slight head and minimal lacing. The aroma is slightly vegetal but not all that appealing like some Belgian whites. No new mown hay scent. Taste is slightly tart, slightly grassy with a bitter middle and a short dry finish. Mouthfeel is generally thin and overall not the best of style.

Appearance: Light hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Minimal lacing.

Aroma: Mild bready, grainy aroma with a little bit of apricot.

Taste: Pretty bland wheat-malt taste, with minimal citrus aspects. Slightly sharp bitterness

Mouthfeel: Thin body, with medium carbonation. Not sure how they managed to get a wibier this watery!

Overall: A pretty poor effort, only marginally more interesting than a macro-lager.

On tap.

A: Served a hazy light golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Fairly mild aroma, sort of fruity and a bit herbal.

T: Taste is fairly mild, bit of fruit with a mild malt sweetness and a bit of grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, smooth but a bit bland.

O: Pretty ordinary for the style.

White Rabbit White Ale is a fairly flavourless witbier.

A: Cloudy pale yellow colour and and a 5 mm head that dies hard and fast. 3

S: Spicy with a hint of pears and some yeast. 4

T: Sharp clove and citric flavour with noticeable hard-water salts. I don't love it. 3

M: Foamy with reasonably-large bubbles. 4

O: 3

A - 3 fingers of perfectly clean white meringue-like head. Pale and clear in the body.

S - Fresh spongecake, vanilla.

T - Follows the nose, lacks the spice and coriander that you want in a wit. Lemon and lime resonate.

M - Watery, thin. Moderate carbonation.

O - Attractive to the eye, but too light on the palate, and just come up short in most areas.

Not much happening here. Clean and dry but not particularly flavoursome. Faint traces of lemon both in aroma and palate, and some bitterness / aniseed in the latter. But, ultimately just doesn’t offer much at all, like most local examples of the genre.
