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.

Kinda bitter/sour at the end. Great aroma but not the finish I want. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
"What the hell?! Maybe I’ve been spoiled lately, with a plethora of awesome saisons, but damn this is just weak. When non-offensive is the first thing that comes to mind, I am underwhelmed. Light rustic farmhouse aroma with some light fruit. The flavor, after a thin body, is quite boring, with an utter lack of farmhouse character and just a bit of light fruit, generic sweetness, and a listy dustiness. Booooring."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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