12oz can into 22oz BWW weizen glass.

Pours a typical hefe cloudy orange yellow although with a smaller than normal white head. Head goes down to a skim fairly quickly given the style. Smell is light and lemon citrusy with some of the yeast coming out, though not as much as I'd like. Taste is light and citrusy wheat some good amounts of hefe yeast and a hint of spice. The aftertaste has some orange rind. Body is extremely light given the style and could use a bit of oomph, nice and dry.

This comes off more like a weak weissbier than a wit/weiss hybrid. Only fans of the style will be able to pick up the subtle spicing and lighter than normal body that suggest wit. Not a bad beer but leaves me wanting either a wit or a weiss, not both.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston.

The beer pours an ugly, murky yellow color with a white head. Even for a beer that is supposed to be hazy, this beer is pretty ugly. The aroma is full of wheat with a lot of banana and clove notes mixed in. The flavor also has a lot of hefeweizen character to it, with a lot of banana and clove notes. However, there is also a little bit of orange peel in the flavor, but I don't get any of the coriander that is used in the beer. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Proud to be the first to enter a beer on Karbach's BA page, and proud to have this new Houston brewery situated less than 2 miles from my house in Houston. They have a great brewing Heritage from Brewmaster Eric Warner, and I expect them to be a staple in my fridge and in my cup from here on out.

Got my growler filled with this beer less than 4 hrs ago at Petrol Station in Houston. Poured from growler into Brooklyn tulip. Pours a cloudy, light orange/yellow color. Crazy head fills the glass immediately- its almost reminiscent of a saison/farmhouse ale in appearance. Great head retention, stays around forever. Smell- coriander, citrus peel (orange), lemon citrus, and definitely a yeasty, bready quality to the aroma. Just smells fantastic. Taste- first thing that hits the palate is the coriander spice, followed by that dry citrus peel. Excellent carbonation makes for a dry finish. There is definitely a breadiness on the palate too- yummy sweet breads- something you would imagine coming from the dough of a fresh baked cinnamon roll. Man- this is an amazing beer. So light, airy, refreshing. I'm upping my grade to a 5 on the taste and mouthfeel. This beer is nothing less than world class- I can't wait to have it available in cans shortly.

More of a regular American wheat beer than a hefe, although not a bad one at that. Foamy pour, light body, floral spicy aroma. Suitably carbonated. Decent drinkability, a tad fruity and significantly spicy. Medium mouthfeel at best, a tad watery. Thanks SliverX.
