3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like wheat, bubblegum, and a bit of peppery spice. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, with the wheat flavor being the strongest. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a solid beer. $1.99 a single bottle.

Pours a clear orangish gold color with a one-finger white head and decent lacing. Aroma is slight funkiness, fruity, and grassy. Taste is sweeter than most saisons. The flavors are fruity and spicy with a bit of yeast funkiness.

19 June 2013, bottle. Yellow, almost clear, steady bubbles. Nose is lemon zest, cobwebs, faintly tart saison yeast. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Lemon zest, slight tartness, some earthiness. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24oz bottle. Aroma is of yeast with a little skunk. The appearance is a dark gold with little tan head. The taste farmhouse yeast with some almost saison skunk at the end. The palate is yeasty with a skunky aftertaste. Overall, i am impressed with this beer coming out of shiner. I wonder if the masses of bock fans will enjoy it. Decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear gold color in the glass. Very bright and appealing. Aroma of some herbs spice and cream. Tasty malt and an odd slight latex flavor in the mix followed by some more spice notes. Overall, its not that bad... Not that great for a Saison but good for a lawnmower type brew. I’ll probably purchase again.

This beer was pretty good it was not your average ale beer. It was light on the hops but not on flavor

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a golden color with a big tight white head that turns into a small tight white head.
The aroma is peppery and floral, a touch of banana in there... lots of mineral character. Some doughiness, some sweetness... sorta soapy.
The flavor is spicy, very spicy... fairly dry, perhaps a little overbearing on breadiness and alcohol... but by all means perfectly drinkable. The malt is crisp, the hop bitterness is pleasant. I don’t have a ton of complaints in the flavor department here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this at Bella Milano in Edwardsville, not normally a place known for beer. Twelve ounce bottle. A hazed pour with a nice big white head. A decent but light aroma of fruit with a tiny hint of farmhouse funk. Light fruit with pale malts were tasted. Some buttery effects. This was decent and over priced there (almost $10). A tick is a tick.

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.
