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.
