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.
Pours a golden orange with a small white head. Aromas of citrus/ginger. Flavor was kinda of muted compared to the nose. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Kinda bitter/sour at the end. Great aroma but not the finish I want. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear with no head. Aroma of sweet fruit. Tastes sweet. Easy to drink. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"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."

Draft. Clear pale yellow color, white head. Aroma of dusty white pepper. Taste id funky lager. Not a bad attempt.

Opaque yellow without any foam. Barley aroma and small spicy taste, some pepper. for the rest not a very nice tasting beer. (Houston 201408) Zarf (23) - Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2014
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. Psytron (2500) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
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. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
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.
