This offering from Karbach is definitely their highest quality and tastiest, imo. It's a cross between a witbier and a hefe, but overall, more like a hefe.

A--Cloudy and golden. Nice foamy and creamy white head with great retention.

S--Banana at the forefront, clove, light fruit, lemon, biscuit, coriander. The smell promises everything in the taste and does not disappoint.

T--This one is in my top 5--best wheat beer I've ever had. Perfect balance of tangy, citrusy hops blended expertly with banana and honey wheat malts. Sweetness comes in at the forefront but finishes cleanly and crisply. Totally refreshing, great session beer.

M--Luscious mouthfeel. Creamy and medium bodied with a balanced level of carbonation.

D--I could drink 20 of these, and I might.

Overall, I would say Karbach knocked it out of the park, and Eric Warner is to be commended. I am stoked to have such an excellent brewery in Houston--very much looking forward to seeing their beer in stores.

Pours a hazy golden orange with two fingers of bright white fluffy head.

The aroma is dominated by spicy notes of clove, banana and bubblegum. Very inviting.

The taste follows the nose. Spice/Clove forward with bubblegum undertones. Very nice banana finish. Very delicious!

Medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall this is my favorite Karbach offering and one of my latest go to beers. I would put this on par with Live Oak but without the hype. Maybe one day it will get up there on that level but it is a delicious hef either way.

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.

On tap at Petrol Station Houston.

A- Hazy warm yellowish orange color poured with a decent 1 and half finger eggshell colored head. Looks very refreshing and inviting.

S- This thing smells great. Lots of wheat, hints of a sweet banana/ clove. Very fruity smelling but not tropical fruits or citrus typically associated with heavily hopped IPAs.

T- This thing tastes awesome. The smell transfers over to the taste greatly. Lots of wheat and refreshing light fruit flavor. A tad bit of hops balances everything things out. This beer finishes dry and is more flavorful than alot of it's euro counterparts.

M- Light, crisp and very quaffable. Plenty of carbonation. This beer has a perfect home here in the sweltering heat of Houston.

O- This is one of the best heffe/wit style beers I've had the pleasure of drinking. I think this beer is even superior to its Live Oak counterpart. Very proud this is made in my home town. I went back the very next day after trying it and got a growler fill.

The Best wheat i have tried to date ,i would like a bottle though.Pours a hazy golden color with a huge white head that stands on the beer and doesn't quit. There's also an alka-seltzler amount of carbonation in the glass. Biscuity malt and grassy, herbal hop aroma. There's also some distant coriander and sweet anise type spice. The flavor is much more citrus and coriander flavor. The spice starts out and then fades a bit with the appearance of citrus hop, fruity esters and sweet candi sugar. The alcohol burn shows up in the finish which also has a lingering coriander spice. High carbonation give it a peppery feel. Somewhat light body
