Golden yellow, clear. I respect Shiner and like most of their brews but this one is a no-go for me. I think that it is the meridian hops along with a few flavorings that give this ale a spiced aftertaste. I drank this with a few buddies and there was nobody on the fence. Either you liked it or you forced yourself to finish the bottle. Coriander / clove / anise type of flavor. Not for me.

A nice example of a farmhouse style beer, with slightly sweet, slightly spicy hops and a nice aroma.

Not really sure why I decided to try this. It wasn’t horrible. Had it on tap the other day. Poured a clear golden yellow. Pretty sweet, a little overly so. Thin. Meh. Could’ve been worse.

Smell of hops and malts. Orange colour, white head. Aroma of straw, paper, malt and a faint of hop. Fizzy carbon. Medium sweet with slightly watery textiure. Stinging palate.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with white head. Funk and a bit of wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of funk. Just ok.

Nose is the best part then it goes downhill. Big fruity spicy nose. Taste is okay fruity and sour. But a bit bland. Not a lot going on. Wegs pic six.

My favorite beer! Only wish that Shiner would make ths a year-round beer instead of spring seasonal.

Doesnt really taste much like a saison. Fairly boring without great spicy farmhouse tastes that are advertised.
