To obtain the outcome found in the picture associated with the stain you will need to dilute the stain with water (1:1 at least). Even after diluting this much the color produced with my concrete (each is individual) came out looking almost like rust (so way darker than the picture and less yellow). I still liked the outcome after neutralization with dilute baking soda. Cannot wait to seal this surface and see how it looks in the end.
Good product as shown on pics it does give a spatter appearance. I was going from a grey concrete to the wheat acid. Works as shown but I think it's best for un colored concrete. Otherwise I would give five stars. FYI stain after four days got deeper but not enough to produce what I wanted. I switched to their cocoa acid stain which was way darker and more uniform worked great which I would give five stars

The color came out as we expected after seeing the online reviews and mfg. picture. We were going for a more yellow/rust look and that's what we got. Our only complaint is it took 4 gallons and multiple coats to do a little over 400 square feet. We used the stain on 2 newly poured exterior concrete slabs that we were sure to wait the 4 weeks before applying. However, the first slab came out a lot more rust colored than the other. The second slab was not reacting like the first and there are still areas that you can see are very light yellow and the gray concrete look is visible under it. We followed the mfg. instructions to a T, used all Eagle1 products and even watched their how to video. Not sure if it was the way the concrete cured, less stuff in the concrete to react with (even though it was the same pour), outdoor application or what. We even made sure to apply the second coat in the early morning hours when it was cooler thinking it would help. We opted to use the water based Eagle1 Natural Seal sealer, so it has a matte finish instead of shiny. Maybe a glossy sealer would have darkened it?

Performed a test spot in my closet floor and was hoping based off of other reviews it would be a little darker but it came out exactly as described and pictured by the manufacturer. Thinking I’m going to go with their rustic stain based on my preference.

The color is absolutely nothing like what is advertised. Thankfully i tried it on a test sport and i didn't ruin my entire patio, but now i have to cover it up with a different product.It looks like a nice yellow/tan/beige in the photo, but on my concrete it turned out looking like a rust stain.
