3.8/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured with a swirl half-way, Hoegaarden style -- still, the yeast cake seems resolutely stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Fortunately, it's still a cloudy pleasant body; very pale straw yellow coloured, just deepening to a hint of orange in the thicker portion of the glass. Head is a magnificent frothy meringe of white. Lacing is sudsy. Looks every bit the good witbier.

Nose is sweet, citric and candy like. Big hints of orange rind and lemon sherbet, with a little acidity which renders it a little like oaked chardonnay. Not a huge nose, and it lacks the spicy and herbal coriander notes of the best examples, but it's not bad.

Taste is muted, but still it has that pleasant sweet citrus character throughout. Extremely clear and clean and fresh, giving everything up for a smooth, drinkable palate. True, it's missing some big, cranky and fragrant characters of the best wits, but it sure puts together something clean and refreshing.

I think this beer captures the philosophy of a wit rather well, if not its full spectrum. The style is meant to be refreshing, drinkable, slightly acidic and extremely clean. This does a good job there. If it lacks a little something I think it can be forgiven. I prefer my wits to err on the side of refreshing drinkability than on the side of robust experimentation.

This is a very pleasant beer, well made and with purpose. I can definitely see it becoming part of my regular rotation.

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.

2.83/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 3

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

2.93/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a bit cloudy pale yellow beer. A bit of carbonation and head is 1 finger but disappears quickly.

S: Smell of lemon, a wee bit of honey. No smell present of hops. Light smell of yeast.

T: Full taste of carbo in the beginning, bubbly. Surprisingly weak taste, not what I expected. Light beer with a faint taste of citrus and honey.

M: Mouthfeel is pretty sharp, lots of carbo but then softens.

Overall: Read a good article about this beer in a food magazine in Melbourne but it’s not quite what they wrote about it. Taste is weaker then expected. It’s a nice beer to drink in the summer but it ain’t material for beertastings.

An interesting one - will it hang together like it's much hyped twin the Dark Ale?

Not always as keen on Witbiers, either, lets see...

Pours a weak straw colour, moderately cloudy, bubbles away. Two finger head that recedes, then leaves lacing.

Aromas of lemon zest, maybe a little honey in there - no malts or hops.

Hm, taste is ok, but just. it doesn't really hang together that well, un-integrated, and seems a bit sharp, not helped by the carbonation that goes on 'n' on.

Won't be buying another 6-er of these.
