I poured this awful beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a pretty golden color and poured a nice big white head. Thats all the good I can say about it. The smell was skunky and terrible. The taste was sour and terrible. I like Shiner products for the most part but this beer got a YUK in my personal beer data base. I would not buy again and Shiner should not produce it again.

This is a solid, very drinkable beer, nothing fancy but well-done for what it is. The flavor didn't leave a big impression on me, and I found the beer rather heavy for the style; but on the other hand, the graininess, very faint citrus notes, and slight touch of bitterness are refreshing. For a craft seasonal its not bad, but this is not something I would go out of my way to seek out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemon citrus are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of lemony flavors along with some hints of bready malts. No spices are noticeable.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties, but seems more similar to a witbier compared to saison.

12oz brown can with a freshness date.

Crystal clear dull amber hue, very bubbly with a decent amount of lace. Ripe pears, spice, bready malt and hay in the nose. Slick medium body, mild crispness. Rustic graininess meets a mild hop bitterness, slightly spicy with a fruity backing. Faint medicinal tone with a ghost like broth note. Finishes spicy and semi-dry.

Decent and expected this. While the whole Saison / Farmhouse thing is way over done now Shiner took a good stab at it.

3.06/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A- slightly hazy gold with a large white head that fades to a finger and leaves suds of lace.

S- upfront is big orange peel with some sweet grain and cardamom underneath. A little bit of wit-like metallic shows as it warms.

T- candy sweetness with just faint notes of citrus hanging on throughout the finish.

M- moderate carbonation with a dry finish that helps dissipate the sweetness.

O- I wasn't expecting much from a Shiner Farmhouse beer but wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately this beer is both a bit muddled and bland without enough character from the hops or yeast.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Almost clear light tangerine color. A light cream colored head recedes to a light film. Light watery lacing initially.

Aroma: Light yeasty notes, grains, wheat. Minimal fruit notes and some citrus towards the back.

Taste: Bright citrus notes to begin, backed by some bready grains. A faint hop presence in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, pretty crisp.

Overall: A pretty clean, crisp tasting brew.
