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.

Long road trip to Texas. Upon arriving at a friend's place, a sixer of this beer awaiting me and my wife. Very thoughtful.

The beer is hazy and pale yellow. An inch of head rapidly fades to but a thin wispy layer. The aroma and flavor are both a bit off. Overly sweetened, with abundant pilsner malt and/or cereal grain character. Metallic and harsh on the palate. One was more than enough. Not again.

A: Hazy amber pour. Big fluffy tan head that fizzes away very quickly. Soap bubble-like head. Zero lacing. Looks still afterwards.

S: Really sweet grains. Almost like corn syrup somehow. A bit of orange and banana?

T: Sweet orange and some...coriander? Wheat shows up in the finish but there is a sickly syrupy sweet layer of orange over everything. Mildly dry finish oddly enough, despite the sweetness.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Hmph. Wasn't feeling this one. It's a really sweet and orangy witbier-esque brew, it actually reminds me heavily of shock top. That's not a good thing. Not terrible but not great either. Makes me wonder if it isn't old - but there's no date so who knows.

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.

Karbach Weisse Versa Wheat has a thick, creamy, off-white head and a very bold, golden appearance, with relatively large brown chunks and relatively tiny white chunks suspended throughout the beer. There are lots of tight bubble streams and decent lacing. The aroma is of banana pudding, white bread, and powdered sugar. Taste is of coriander, slight banana, and Sunbeam brand white bread, with some background bread crust and underlying, yet faint, banana notes. Mouthfeel is watery and slick, and Karbach Weisse Versa finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and easily drinkable. Overall, for a wheat, this is a winner. Yum!
