2.64/5  rDev -28.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

12 oz can pours a mostly clear gold color that is pretty dark for the style with a pretty average cap of off-white head. Retention and lacing are both very pedestrian as well.

Nose is sharp tangerine and some coriander. Too much spice, doesn’t let any of the delightful lemony wheat and soft yeast found in a good saison shine through.

Taste again shows too much spice additions, it tastes like a strong witbier. The malt is too heavy and sweet as well. The hops and spices clash on top of that and you pretty much get this disaster of a beer. I don’t think I have been this disappointed in Karbach before, definitely been more hits than misses in their young pupilage as a brewery. Not a fan of the Barn Burner...lighten up the malt, throw away the spice jar and up the wheat percentage....basically scrap this and start over. I hate to dis on a good local brewery, but this beer is not even average for the style.
