Not a very good saison. A bit too carbonated and had too much spice. Wish it was a little bit more mellow.

Had this at Bella Milano in Edwardsville, not normally a place known for beer. Twelve ounce bottle. A hazed pour with a nice big white head. A decent but light aroma of fruit with a tiny hint of farmhouse funk. Light fruit with pale malts were tasted. Some buttery effects. This was decent and over priced there (almost $10). A tick is a tick.

On tap at an Old Chicago. Pours a near orangish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of flora with supporting sweet citrus and backing sweet grains. Flavor starts with sweet citrus and potpourri and has a sweet grain finish.

Alittle sour and citrus. Clear and clean with a taste of wheat. Pretty good. A little flat on draft

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of citrus, banana, biscuits, and soured fruits. Tastes a bit sour. Yeasty, citrus, earthy, dirty, and a bit of spice. Good carbonation. A dry bitter finish.

I’m glad I didn’t look this beer up before I drank it, I probably wouldn’t have tried it if I did. Had it last night at my sisters, she bought it because she liked the label. Aroma was citrus and hops. A very refreshing beer that tasted great on a warm evening.

Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Light golden pour, split by white head. Horse blanket and bubblegum aroma with some hops. Taste is very similar -- and better than previous reviewers are giving credit for. Another one that if you slam a vogue label brewery label on the bottle, people will be raving and ISO. This is Shiner, though, so no love from the beer dorks. Honestly I had low expectations and this is the best beer I have ever had from this brewery and one of my favorites tonight.

22 oz bottle. Golden pour. White head. Some floral sweetness but kind of watery weak sauce.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from 12oz brown bottle into a shaker glass. It poured a clear amber colour with weak white foam. Faint aromas of grain, sweet malts, earthy and flowery hops and even fainter ale yeast esters. Flavour was caramel, tangy hops balance and apricot fruit roll-ups. Medium body and carbonation, some sticky sweetness in the aftertaste. Nothing like a classic saison, but slightly more complex than Shiner Bock amber lager. An interesting step in the right direction, but I liked their Wild Hare Pale Ale better.

Only a slightly funky taste that works quite well as a session beer. The malt is medium with a very mild hop taste. A great session
