COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few centuries ago, during the cold winter months, farmhands in Europe brewed a ‘seasonal provision’ Farmhouse Ale to be enjoyed once spring rolled around. In the farmlands of Shiner, TX that tradition lives on. Which is why our tribute to this style uses Golding, Sterling and Meridian hops for a sweet yet lightly spiced flavor. Our incredibly refreshing farmhouse ale bears the name of the farm to market road just to the south of where our brewery has proudly stood for over 100 years.

3/4/13. Bottle from PorterPounder awhile back and forgot to rate... also on tap at Dahlia’s. Hazy golden pour with a big khaki head. Overly phenolic aroma, straight up plastic, with touches of malty sweetness. Phenolics and sweet esters on the flavor. Eh.

Fatehunter (1236) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Almost a finger of head on a hazy, orange/golden colored body. The aroma is nice: banana, grain, lemon and nectarine. The taste is watery with hints of banana and lemon. Too mild. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer but the taste could have more to it.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a gold color with a small white head. The nose is weak with a plastic, yeast, and straw. The flavor had a light sweetness with slight yeast, grass, and hay notes. A little spice as well. Light in body with flabby mouthfeel. Certainly not the best example of the style.

climberbob (108) - Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
bottle. golden pour. main complaint is that it is just a bit watery all round - weak aroma and too mild on the saison funk for my likings. Perhaps OK as a watered down and bland version for a hot Texan summer but nothing special compared to other offerings.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Somewhat sweet aroma with light notes of hay, wheat and funk. Moderately sweet flavor with hints of earth, grass and light malts. Pretty bland but unoffensive.

bu11zeye (11951) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2013
(12oz bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of plastic, sulfur, dustiness, florals, grass, earth, and nuts. Flavor of grass, grain, citrus, earth, and light butter.

emacgee (4030) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours a sharp clean gold with a thin and fizzy white head. Nose is very mellow/mild with a touch of spice and grassy notes. Flavor bottoms out. A hint of spice in the mouth and thats it. Watery/thin. BLeh

mmmbeer (1246) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker- served a 95 percent transparent sunfaded wheat straw color, flimsy one finger head formed, collapsed upon itself, and quickly disappeared. Aroma of very light funk, musk, spice, light fruit, and hard water- really, hard water. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes like generic Wheaties, some spice in the middle, finish fades quickly. Try again Shiner.

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours a slight opaque straw yellow with thick white head, decent lacing. Aroma of bubble gum, yeast, straw, citrus, spices, and slight herbal hops. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice enjoyable brew, especially considering the source.

Draft at Hotel Victor... The nose is skunk/funk, stale malts, grains, cat pee, and a bit of fruit... The pour is a clear golden orange color with a small white head and light lace... The taste is also kinda skunky, some funky note, yeast, fruit, and no hop... It has a fairly light body, feels kinda watery, with average carbonation... Definitely not a winner.
