2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma has a sharp, fruity and slightly yeasty overtone. Pours a nice clear yellow with a thick but not persistent ivory head. Flavor is crisp and malty, subtly fruity and yeasty, not strong. Texture has average fizz and viscosity, though the tingle does persist a little. So-so overall, but fine for sipping on a hot day or while watching a ball game.

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.

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 doesnít impress but itís 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 Iíve 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 itís most likely Shinerís 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.
