Had on tap at the brewery 09/07/11.

Pours a very pale straw colour, extreme opaqueness to it with virtually no light penetrating that thick haze. Head is small due to the pour. White ring of lace. Looks OK.

Nice tang on the nose, very orangey and fruity with a hint of spice at the back. Cinnamon, clove and hint of lemon as well. Not quite the heights of spice I would like but decent wit smell.

Taste is OK to begin with. Orange tang on there, fairly sweet and fruity towards the mid where the yeast takes over. Slight bitterness but a bit bready towards the back. Citrus returns for the finish with some sweet orange esters in there, but it could use more spice to make it finish on a more interesting note. It's clean, but ultimately a bit bland.

Drinks OK, bit of fizz and nice and full, not a lot to it though.

Decent wit but nothing more than that. Could do more with the basics and jazz up the style a bit, but really it's just another average wit in a burgeoning crowd of them.

Good, clean spicy coriander aroma with light citrus notes.

Slightly hazy dark straw colour with a nice, thick white head.

Clean wheat flavour with a clear coriander and citrus note. A very good Hoegaarden style witbier.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

A very nice witbier. There are good flavours in this classic take on the style.

Tried on tap at the ABF at the Australian Hotel..

Quite a dark yellow - almost tending to orange. Good thick head though. A good looking beer.

Nose is almost overpowered with banana - far more like a hefeweizen nose than a witbier nose. No hint of witbier spices.

Taste is also dominated by the sweet banana flavours. Almost a hint of that artificial "bubblegum" taste to it. It's pretty much unrecognisable as a wit - would be far better as a hefe.

Still, it's a pretty drinkable brew all the same.
