Orange and hazy, head and lace are ok but not great.

Aroma is real nice, yeasty and clovey, wheaty. Flavor also nice, certainly has aspects of both wheat beers, hefs and wits, cloves, a smidge of banana, a little spice, ample wheat.

Body is pretty thick and chewy, good for the style.

I continue to enjoy Karbach's beers as I try them. Another tasty one.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from can to Weizen glass.

Hazy amber gold body with a quickly diminishing white head.

An expected bouquet: there is banana, lemon, vanilla, maybe a little spice. This beer is mostly sweet however.

The sweetness of the nose is much subdued on the palate. The beer starts with lemon and slowly adds some clove and a general earthiness. As the drink is swallowed, the banana cream pie sweetness is reintroduced and makes for a very satisfying finish.

More bubbly than creamy, this Hefe still manages a solid medium body. I prefer a little less crispness with this style.

The aromas of this beer are excellent, almost like sticking your nose in a banana cream pie! I wish the palate did the same, but it spends more time with herbal and earthy tones. Only getting to what the nose flirted at in the finish. Still, this was quite the easy drink.

12 oz can poured into pint glass.

A - Very hazy straw color with a finger and a half of white head that dissipates quickly

S - Banana, clove, yeast, and lemon are all apparent in the aroma

T - The taste closely follows the aroma, with banana, lemon, clove, wheat, and Belgian yeast being the predominant flavors. This is accompanied by some citrus fruity esters. A really nice balance in the flavors

M - A moderate body, pretty chewy for a hefeweizen, and moderate carbonation

O - This is a great balanced American hefe with a Belgian twist. It's easy drinking and is quite complex. Good job Karbach

Bought from local H-E-B in 6 pack, cans.

A- Poured from can into pint glass, 2 finger thick light khaki foamy head. Left good lacing on glass, dissipated a little fast.

S- Citrus, Subtle Wheat, and Banana. Very complimenting of each other. No alcohol

T- Easy tasting wheat on the front end with a good balance of citrus notes. Spicy on the finish, probably from the yeast, coriander and banana.

M- Smooth, with excellent constant carbonation.

O- Not overpowering in wheat or hops. Good overall balance, no major flavors really standing out. Still exceeded my expectations, enjoyed this very much for an early afternoon.
