Clear lightish gold with a thick foamy white head. Nose is dusty and a hint citrusy, with a bit of Pilsen malt and a bit of bread. Taste has a bit more of that bread tone, some dusty hay, some non-bitter orange rind, and an overall note of shiny clean mineral water. Or non-gross plastic. It’s overall okay, a bit under-estery and lacking bite. Like every other Shiner beer. But it’s good to see them try. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, grass, citrus and some spice. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a slight dry finish. A nice and unique beer. BeerandBlues2 (13806) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Tap at Mellow Mushroom - Johnson City. Pours clear gold with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is banana, cloves, wheat malt, pear and apple esters with black pepper and earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with spices, light hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a dry finish.

A- Spices, apples, pears.
A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Light spices, low bitterness, light fruits.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish.
O- A good ale, but not as much complexity as I would hope for from a Farmhouse. Subtle fruit tones and not a lot of bitterness in this one. mar (5439) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Gold pour with a white head. Nose is earth, spices, light yeast, and herbs. Easy on the palate, heavy spice, florals, coriander, and a clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a strong clove yeast and pepper. Thin mouthfeel with a light spice and honey with sweet finish. Easy to drink, a good saison from Spoetzl. PorterPounder (8268) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Tallahassee, FL - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden with and initial white bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has some hints of bubble gum, a bit of grassiness and just a twinge of metal. Flavor has some sweet honey notes, a bit of saffron-like spiciness, some grassy notes, a touch of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Gold in color with a small white head. Aroma is of grain, light citrus and yeast. Taste is of grain, citrus, slightly dry. nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12oz bottle. FIltered orange-tan body, active big carbonation bubbles rising. Thin, soda like head. Definitely in the spiced US variety, doesn’t bare much resemblance to a good Belgian example in it’s mouthfeel. Cleanish in it’s filtration, but kind of a flowery mess with the spices sort of limiting and hop flavors. A touch grainy in the finish. Drinkable, but not that impressive of an offering.

While this is a spicy and tasty farmhouse style, it lacks some of the robust character I would expect of the style. While this spring seasonal isn't quite robust enough to stand up to the still cold spring days by the fire, the warm hints of an oncoming summer that tease from time to time match we'll with this spicy brew.
