Fruit, funk and Coors. The aroma had a strange hint of a macro brew. The color was a pretty golden red. Palate was sharp with not a favorable finish. Flavors were interesting with a hint of spice but too subdued. Below average. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes bland. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Poured a very pretty garnet colour with a slight, whispy head. Slight tartness in the mouth. Not much hints of any saison. Bif (2394) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a fair head. Aroma of malt sweetness, grain, floral with bit of spice. Taste of malt sweetness, grain and spice. Mild bitterness and bit of tart in the finish. Moderate body, quite smooth with a bit of an earthy feel. Much better than I expected. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2015

August 9th, 2013 - Blue Moon’s Short Straw is the strawberry beer in the line of Blue Moon’s flavored dalliances. I have to admit, knowing the brand and the flavor at attempt made me a little less than excited to give this one a go, but it came out surprisingly well. It’s twangy at front, but then eases into a nice, acidic flavor with strawberries and berries floating atop regular witbier style palate. A surprising success! douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. A light toffee and dusty leaf nose. The flavor is light spices, pepper, some caramel, toffee. This tastes like an amber ale mostly. But I do get some spicy light sourness, metallic really. I don’t know, this isn’t terrible. It is laughable to call it a Flanders Red or whatever, but it is OK drinking. Some kind of odd malt liquor huskiness in the finish. DialSquare (5188) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
12oz bottle from Kroger in Grandview. Copper pour, off-white head. Aroma of sweet, spicy, caramel. Tastes are bready, floral, spice, earthy, sweet caramel malts. Not horrible, but nothing to write home about either. achtungpv (284) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
Inoffensive and uninteresting. It's not a saison just a generic macro with a bit more grassy notes and malts.

Spring break bottle at Vinnie’s condo. Nice dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma is light sweet malt. Flavor is lightly sweet and light lemony tartness. Decent but not really a saison.
