A: Pours a hazy light golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing.

S: Mild aroma of hops, with some grain and bit of malt sweetness.

T: Taste is a bit crisp with a mild malt sweetness and some grian. There is a mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Decent balance.

O: This is beer is not spcetacular, more middle of the road for the style. Good for a few.

Pours pale gold with a small head.
Nose shows coriander and doughy notes with orange peel evident later. Subtle.
Similar flavours but there's also some annoying grainy malt in there which drags it down.
Good light body and moderately high carbontion.

This brew pours a dark golden hue with decent carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head and heaps of lacing,the smell of this brew is pretty weak with aromas of lemon,citrus and some wheat but thats it,it has a pretty light mouthfeel which is overcarbonated with little tastes of citrus and wheat,overall even tho its easy to drink i dont think ill revisit this uninteresting brew anytime soon.

Poor aroma with notes of lemon and barnyard funk. To me this is an unfortunate infection. Light spicing and a hint of wheat aroma.

Mostly clear, straw colour with a big, fluffy white head. Decent head retention.

Hmmm, brett and lactic are the first notes I get. A touch of lemon, some light wheat under it all. The flavour isn't actually bad. it is sort of like a tart, witbier or a weak lambic. While it is drinkable, the infection reflects poorly on Bright Brewery's sanitation and is a disappointment.

Medium body with high carbonation. It's okay.

Tried on tap at Sydney's Local Taphouse.

Very clear, lagery looking body, dark golden colour. Very dark for a wit. Decent head that leaves some lacing. Needs some sediment, and too dark, otherwise it's a decent looking brew.

Bit of sudsy aroma on the nose. Some spice. Muted but otherwise ok. A little sweet lemon, not a huge amount of pepper or spice, but there's nothing off in it.

Taste is good for a wit. Sweet spice and curacao, refreshing soapy bitterness on the back. Clean and extremely drinkable. An excellent sessioner. Mouthfeel is clean, but a little thin.

Very, very easy to drink. It's not that it has any unpleasant characters to it, it just doesn't quite have the depth of flavour of the best. But it's very clean, quite tasty. Without a doubt it's the sort of beer you could drink all night without a second thought.

A - Hazy pale straw colour with a big fluffy white head.
S - Slight spiciness but not overpowering with a slightly sweet wheat malt presence.
T - Very much along the same lines as the smell with a crisp, dry finish.
M - Medium body with a spritzy carbonation.
D - Good micro witbier thats nice and refreshing. Puts many other micro/craft "wheat" beers to shame.
