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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Pours a clear and light gold. Has a strong lemon, orange, citrus, and yeasty aroma. Taste is watered down with some citrus, malt, and wheat.

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.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright yellow-golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart and tangy with notes of citrus, yeast and pepper. The flavor was bitter and tart with notes of cardboard, yeast, citrus, pepper and vague spices. Medium length bitter finish of citrus and pepper. Light to medium body. Ok.
