COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weisse Versa is unfiltered and has the refreshing characteristics youíd come to expect in a wheat beer, but the combination of the citrus peel and coriander added during the brewing process and the natural clove, nutmeg and banana aromas produced by our special, Bavarian wheat beer yeast result in a beer thatís unlike any youíve ever had. With Weisse Versa you get the flavors you love in a German Hefe AND in a Belgian White beer. Both. At the same time.

A combination of two of my favorite styles: Belgian white and hefeweizen. Karbach got this one right. Perfect balance of these two complementary styles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 Karbachís beers as I try them. Another tasty one.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can:   Pale orange, hazy, thin sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Wheaty nose, slight banana, a little bit of melon.   Soft sweetness up front, fruity, a touch of bubblegum, but with only a moderate wheaty background.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft fruity wheaty finish.   More interesting than most, but the wheaty aspect isnít too strong.   Has some good aspects, but wished it actually were a bit more wheaty.   Decent otherwise.   Thanks Bill!

Geokkjer (5967) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2013
Can.Pours cloudy golden with off-white head. Aroma of malt, wheat, caramel, some banana and cloves. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some banana, fruitiness and spices. Medium body, average carbonation.

degbert (1174) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Can. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a high, crumpet-like pale head. Nose is typical of the style -- not getting a lot of the tropical fruit, though; itís much more spice and grain forward. Quite sweet on the front of the tongue, with some fruity esters. Thereís the banana, along with apricot and papaya; it seems a little flat, however. Thereís just not as much punch to it as Iíd like, for some reasons. Finish sticks around, but is unremarkable. Itís all right, but just all right.

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Very foggy, bright orangey gold, big fluffy white head. Generally nice, spicy wheat aroma. Lightly spicy, yeasty, very very light diacetyl, very light powdered sugar sweetness, low bittering. Mild banana, bit-o-honey flavors as it warms. Medium-light mouthfeel. Very refreshing on a hot indian summer afternoon in Houston. On tap, Hay Merchant.

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Long road trip to Texas. Upon arriving at a friendís 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.

Pours a medium yellow. Love the name. First I get the wheat notes. Grain is foremost. But I also pick up a slight vanilla and banana set of notes as well. Would be a great summer beer here in LA. Brewers Association dinner at The Tasting Kitchen in Venice.

Tap. The look is clear, decent foaming white head, and pretty clear. The smell is wheat, clove, spice, yeast, and banana bread. The taste is all the same. Just ok.

I was turned on to this gem while visiting family in Houston. Picked up a six pack from Specís. I wanted something that can only be bought in Texas, so I was recommended this. NOT bitter, as from my understanding banana is used in the brewing process so there is just a tiny hint of sweetness and maybe a bit of nuttiness as well.
