4.28/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pale yellow in color with a fluffy 2" head that hung around a while.

Smell: lemon zest and some spiciness rises from the glass.

Taste: wheat, grass, lemon zest, cracked pepper, coriander, some spicy yeast, and a soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp from start to finish. Refreshing.

Overall: I found this to be quite enjoyable and easy to consume.

A: hazy pale straw yellow color. Fluffy white head

S: lemongrass, wheat, grains, clove, pear

T: grains, lemongrass, and clove upfront. There is a sweet citrus zest presence in there along with subtle pepper spice. Sweet pear to close it out

M: medium mouth with lower carbonation than used to for saison

O: a decent saison here. Light and refreshing, not as effervescent as some others though. Still worth a purchase for sure

I had this on draught at a bar. It was served in a pint glass. It poured a clear, golden straw color with a small, milk-white head and lacing. It smells of banana, cloves, lemon, and pepper. The taste follows the nose but also includes some grass, wheat, coriander, and yeast. Overall, it has a lot of Belgian Saison flavor. The sweet and tart balance well. This Wit is light, crisp, and its 4.7% ABV is barely noticeable. Overall, it is well-balanced, tasty, and a nice beer to drink on a hot summer day.

Growler purchased 7/2/16 at brewery and poured into Kane Belgian ale glass. FWIW, they call this a farmhouse saison, not a witbier.

L: Hazy very pale gold. 3F head with good retention, some lacing, ring.

S: Witbier and Saison smashup: wheat malts, orange, and coriander. Saison yeastiness, lemon from their added Sorachi Ace hops, which is an interesting variant.

T: Wheat malts, Saison yeast, orange peel, stronger than expected lemon, coriander and flaked oats on the back end. Not bitter at all (more witbier in this way).

F: Light body, medium carbonation, good balance and construction. Crisp, refreshing, and sessionable.

O: Solidly decent for the style, either way. Kane rarely does anything by the numbers and this is another case. So it's a floor wax AND a dessert topping!
