Personally, I liked it a lot, it's now on my list of beers to drink after having tried it. One review (and I can't say it better myself) said this (before ordering a pint, I Googled it and read up on it)...

Tastes like a Two Tone bar...but in a good way!!! not too creamy, not to orange-y.
Orange Amber in color. If you're not into fruit beer, this will not be your cup o tea...or mug o beer rather.

I don't know, I've tried fruit beer only once, it was apple flavored I think. I didn't like it but probably because it felt like they just pored apple syrup into light beer. tasted very artificial too, so a good one should taste better I imagine

Tried a few nice Belgian lambric's but my current fave would be chili beer or a good English chocolate stout.

I have an Oatmeal stout in the secondary fermenter right now. Threw in some bananas, too. Curious to see how it turns out.

Unless they're brewed together, though, KEEP YOUR DAMN FRUIT OUT OF MY BEER!

Had a very unique English Ale today brewed by a pico just a few miles down the road.  Utterly delicious.  My dry hopped blonde is tasting quite good right now.

You can get that banana aroma/flavour just by fermenting S04 at too high a temp as well.  So I'm told...

Yep, is that the ole Hefewiezen method? I'm still trying to figure out the whole system but yeast strains and fermentation temps seem a miraculous thing.

Beer is split into Lagers and Ales. Lager yeasts ferment at about 47F and sit at the bottom producing a clean and crisp taste, whereas ale yeasts do well at 70F and ferment at the top, yielding more complex flavours and aromas.  Lagers (not surprisingly) take longer to ferment and require refrigeration, which is why ales are prominent in the craft beer industry: cheaper and easier to produce. 

There's your lesson for today boys...

Drank Shiner Octoberfest over the weekend.
I hadn't tried Shiner before but I know that it's a household name down south.
I thought it was pretty good.

I had a Shiner Bock when in Texas a number of years ago.  Tasty...
