2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of gum, dough and clove, slight pepper. Appearance is gold with short lived foamy white head. Flavor starts out a little peppery, and then moves into sustained gummy sweetness; the finish is very lightly spiced. Palate is light, creamy and soft. Decent enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like wheat, bubblegum, and a bit of peppery spice. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, with the wheat flavor being the strongest. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a solid beer. $1.99 a single bottle.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wheat and farmhouse aroma with a sweet vineous component that’s like Chardonnay. Clear medium pale yellow with a white head. A little pepper spice, coriander and funk with a good malt body. Low carbonation and the head dies quickly. Finishes slightly sweet with lasting Saison flavor. Easy to drink and refreshing, this is good warm weather beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a very good saison. A bit too carbonated and had too much spice. Wish it was a little bit more mellow.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
