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!

Pretty sure they listed this as a "farmhouse ale" at the brewery. Pale lemonade yellow with no head to speak of. Light on the nose with some lmon and maybe grapefruit. I found this thin and watery with a tinge of sour pink grapefruit to it. Just not enough body to rate it higher.
