Cloudy with very nice but not overpowering fruit notes. Served in a can but very good.

This pours a somewht murky golden color. The head is thick and frothy. The nose is strong with wheat. The beer is strong in the wheat flavor. It's a very refreshing hefe.

Awesome on tap at Karbach, one of my original favorites from the company. Bright gold sticky lacing beer, citrus and coriander smell, and refreshing wheat ale taste. Little bit of a Belgian white kick to a Bavarian style hefe. Crossover between multiple styles lends itself pretty well in this instance. Not sure I'd choose a sixer of this stuff anymore, but I still appreciate & love the drank. Cheers

Not your average hef by any means. Comes in hot with straight-up banana aromas and never quits afterward. Smell and flavor finish with a lemony, citrus zest, and a lighter mouthfeel than one might expect from a beer that comes on this strong at first glance. Well worth your time.

Not a bad beer - can definitely see it being a summertime favorite for folks - but I thought it too sweet, too bubble gummy, for my tastes, and the feel not as buoyant as you'd like from a hef/wit. Again, not a bad beer, but if you want a wit or a hef, there are plenty of traditional (and American versions) I'd reach for first.

Look - its a bwit beer...

Feel - light and refreshing

Smell - citrus

Taste - classic German wit, tangy on the front of the tongue, bitter finish.

Overall - I'll have another... Very good drinkable beer.
