2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild clean citrus aroma. From a bottle. Looks like pale lager with a decent head. Smooth and rather easy. A few saison attributes without going over teh top. Can drink. Good sizzle. Overall OK saison experience. Some bitterness build as the session continues.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some yeast, but generally muted aroma. Lively mouthfeel, thin body, with very little lingering aftertaste. Like many of their seasonals, very drinkable, but not exceptionally complex.

Aromas of banana, flora, bubble gum, and bread. Hazy, pale gold with a fully lasting, white head. Dry, slightly fruity, and with bright floral notes. Light bodied with refreshing, fluffy carbonation, and a bready finish with mild banana notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle a coworker brought me to try. Aroma is banana, some clove. Very thin head and thin lacing. Flavour is good, but basic banana ester. Very clear with a slight haze. This doesn’t impress but it’s a basic farmhouse. I feel like there are far better out there. Palate finishes thin, watery but clean.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle for review from Shiner. For a mass-marketed saison, it acquits itself pretty well. General malty smell, with a bit of bubble gum ester after I’ve sipped a bit of it. Pours a golden, clearly filtered color under a thick but fizzy head in my Duvel glass, column of bubbles keeps on coming. Taste has that complex savory quality from wheat malt and what tastes like a Saison yeast, though it’s most likely Shiner’s house strain. No bitterness, just enough to counteract the normal malt sweetness. Definitely not a lawnmower beer, but the beer for after chores and before dinner.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Dahlias, why we left Kickbacks and came here I’m still not sure, and what do I end up with, freaking shiners to rate, pours clear gold with a white head, the aroma has tons of plastic mixed in with some funk, and not the good kind of funk, the funk that’s disgusting, flavor is way off with tons of plastic coming through, horrible, absolutely horrible.

From the aroma, I was not expecting much. Pleasant surprise on the taste. Lively carbination when you pour, settles down quite a bit. White head with lots of lacing left on the glass. Slight fruity taste, apples, pears, and bread. Descnt beer for a warm day.
