2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shiner Farmhouse is a dumbed down version of a Saison, at least compared to every one Iíve ever tried. Aromas of bubble gum, some spices, and grains. Flavor is basically the same but more one the bland side. Canít get over how much bubble gum comes through, rather odd. Considering Shiner made this, I wasnít expecting much and am not disappointed. On to the next...

Had this at Top of the Hops 2013 in the VIP section. It was alright. They were calling it Farmhouse Saison.

Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a white head. Nice aroma, but it falls off pretty quick after that. Meh.

Pours a crystal clear gold color in the glass. Very bright and appealing. Aroma of some herbs spice and cream. Tasty malt and an odd slight latex flavor in the mix followed by some more spice notes. Overall, its not that bad... Not that great for a Saison but good for a lawnmower type brew. Iíll probably purchase again.

While this is a spicy and tasty farmhouse style, it lacks some of the robust character I would expect of the style. While this spring seasonal isn't quite robust enough to stand up to the still cold spring days by the fire, the warm hints of an oncoming summer that tease from time to time match we'll with this spicy brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tan and hazy. Head was less than half a finger and lacing was ok at best.
Aroma is pretty good. Bubble gum, yeast, coriander, spices.
Flavor is also pretty good. Spices, yeast, and a notable hops presence are forward, accented with coriander, bready malts, and a bit of funk.
Body is less carbonated than what Iíd usually expect in a saison, but itís not much of a detractor. Itís pretty easy drinking, and actually quite tasty.
Iím quite happy with this one from Shiner. I didnít think theyíd do a saison that well, but itís not bad. Itís not world class, but itís drinkable.

12oz bottle. FIltered orange-tan body, active big carbonation bubbles rising. Thin, soda like head. Definitely in the spiced US variety, doesnít bare much resemblance to a good Belgian example in itís mouthfeel. Cleanish in itís filtration, but kind of a flowery mess with the spices sort of limiting and hop flavors. A touch grainy in the finish. Drinkable, but not that impressive of an offering.

12 oz bottle pours pale amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, yeast and a hint of spice. Taste is sweet malts, grass, bread and spice.

I try not to be dismissive of a beer because of the label. I really do. I donít want to be one of those people who go "Oh, Shiner, I bet this is gonna suck.". That being said, this tastes exactly like youíd think a saison from Shiner would taste like.
