1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle, little head, very nice golden color, almost no aroma (hops maybe), light bready and yeast flavor, doesn’t last. The mild sour doesn’t last, very little to differentiate. Boring. My father described it as, " watery colt 45 malt liquor"

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24oz bottle. Aroma is of yeast with a little skunk. The appearance is a dark gold with little tan head. The taste farmhouse yeast with some almost saison skunk at the end. The palate is yeasty with a skunky aftertaste. Overall, i am impressed with this beer coming out of shiner. I wonder if the masses of bock fans will enjoy it. Decent beer.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Aroma is spicy, grainy, and hints of sour apples. Pours a clear yellow with a small mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste is grainy and watered down with a hint of spice/pepper in the finish. Not much else going on here. Mouthfeel is light with fizzy carbonation. Overall, disappointing.

Sorry, sorry, sorry excuse for a saison. Anytime these guys try to push the boundaries, they just water it down for their "bock" crowd.
