cloudy orange pour with a finger of head which quickly dissipated. smells of bready pilsner malts, citrusy orange, coriander - pretty standard witbier. this reminds me pretty much of hoeegarden.. the flavor is bready, slightly sweet, with mostly the orangey citrus flavor.. and a slight hint of coriander. light/medium body with high carbonation.

this is probably the most unimpressive beer i've had from karbach. it IS refreshing at least, so that's a plus for this hot weather.

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.
