It poured a hazy gold with a nice fluffy white head and the nose was dominated by the classic Bavarian wheat banana notes with some slight cloves and citrus as well. The taste was a perfect blend of both Belgian and Bavarian wheat styles with the classic clove and banana flavors of a Bavarian wheat melding seamlessly with the citrus peel and coriander of the Belgian White. It had the thick and creamy body you would expect from a top notch wheat beer, but was light and refreshing enough to withstand our Texas heat.

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.
