Surprised, this was actually a pretty nice saison. Elements of honey, meadow, some floral notes, and the yeast lilt. Soft and easy to drink. One of Shiner’s better brews.

While I don't think this is Shiner's best performance, it's certainly not a pushover. This is a truly good beer on its own. I just can't help but comparing it to their Bock. This one lacks the complexity and strength of flavor that Bock has, but it is a very good drink. It isn't too strong, but definitely fills the palate. I would drink this again.

Another delicious beer from Shiner. Too bad it's seasonal. Full flavor not watered down. Wheaty flavor and aroma. Nice full bodied beer. Smooth tasting too would recommend

Clean crisp beer that is best in the spring and early summer. It's a refreshing beer that I often enjoy after mowing the grass or working in the sun.

A nice beer....Smooth. Great near Ice Cold out of the bottle. Reminds me of spring for sure, but maybe because that's the only time it's available. A superior choice over standard American beer(bud,coors,miller,etc.)
