Met a mate for a couple of Stone and Woods on tap at The Villager last night in Brisbane. Asked for a Stone and Wood and the waitress asked which one? Turns out they have their ale on top, as well as the new Mash Collective, rum-weizen. Dark wheat beer with a splash of rum. Nice beer, not to my liking and probably a little sweet. It was interesting though. Apparently you can get a case delivered direct for $99. Anyone else tried it?

Yeah I tried it at Archive on the weekend, I loved it (I am a huge fan of dark wheat beers though)
Didn't get much of the rum flavour maybe just a hint, I thought it was aged in rum oak barrels not actual rum into the beer ?

Archive have a boilermaker on offer with this beer which was a shot of some really nice rum (can't remember the name) and that was beautiful.

Worth a try imo, I would buy it again !

Tried it on tap at the Albion in Newcastle.

Wasn't bad, but sort of missed the mark as a dunkelweizen I felt and wasn't particularly "rummy", fair bit of molasses character. More like a Belgian Dubbel than anything...

Pretty much second Mugguss comments, I was expecting more from guys that we know can brew very well.
The molasses taste dominated for me, I know some rum is made from molasses but adding one isnt the same as adding the other.

I'll add my voice to that opinion. I tried it at GABS and just felt it didn't have good characteristics of either the base beer nor the specialty aspect.
