2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Overripe lemon nose, funky overtones, some cheese, some garbage disposal, a bit of coriander. Clear amber, thick head. Dry, malt forward but a bit stale. Lemon present. Light body, watery. Clean finish. I forget what I paid for it, but I hope it wasn’t much.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tastes rather plain to me. Moderate amount of carbonation, and I’m not getting much off the aroma. I get a citrus taste but not much else.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Smells lightly fruity. Pours translucent yellow with a little white head that fades down. Taste is a little fruity and it feels over carbonated, but it’s not unpleasant at all. I can dig it but I’m not a fan.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. There is a lot of bubbles in the glass. The aroma is cheap euro lager. The taste is absolutely an insult to the saison style. Do not get this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear bright orange, no head. The aroma is citrus, spice, tart yeast, and grain. The taste is light and sweet with a touch of spice. There's a light green apple note but, not much else going on. The palate is crisp with a good amount of carb. Nothing special here, wouldn't get it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours chill hazy gold with minimal head. Nose is bready pale malt, orange marmaladey fruit. Tastes somewhat sweet, with pale malt, orangy fruit, mild hops, mild funk, and a complex finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma is some banana, spice, cloves, wheat notes. Some earthy character to this, some pear and other sweetness too. Otherwise this beer is a bit on the average side, not horrible, but just so-so.

Straight from bottle at happy hour. Smooth and light feeling. Easy drinking as with most Shiners. Just okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of dough and fresh cut grass. Tastes of pear, dough and fresh cut grass and light peppery finish. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with decent carbonation. Pretty bland for a saison. Not much flavor and really light.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly hazed gold with a medium, foamy white head. Aroma is fruity and citrusy with soft spice notes, grains, grass and malt notes. Taste is fruity and grassy with yeast, spice, flowers, grains, soft malt and light bready notes. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly and lively carbonation. Ends with more spice and yeast, fresh fruit, light malt, toasted bread, soft grains and grass. Not bad!
