Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a small thin white head with some lacing. Smells a bit sour, with malts, spice, and a few other flavors which were hard to figure out. The taste was ummm...pretty bad overall. Trying to figure out what was the direct cause of the dislike and has to be some strange hops. Ended up poring out the rest of the glass. Shiner brews are all over the board.

Kind of a saison light presentation. Has the pieces, light fruity, a little doughy, but it is soft on intensity. And the intensity dies out in time.
Full rich white head. Slightly cloudy body and a straw gold color.
Nice fruit flavors. Really quite refreshing. Mild to a little more in the drying. Mild tartness and hints of sour.
Tingly, but not prickly, carbonation. Reasonable soft.
This is a good starter saison. Hits the basics. Is enjoyable. Price is right.

3.65/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: slight haze, golden yellow, fizzy white head

Aroma: refreshing fruitiness bordering on citrus with a slight tartness. Slight pale malt aroma. Overall zesty aroma

Taste: Zesty refreshing taste of citrus fruit and soft pale malt background.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy and medium bodid

Overall: Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Quite refreshing, as the style should be, but lacking in citrus fruitness that could take this ale to a new level. Slightly overcarbonated as well.
