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.

Tastes more like a witbier than a saison which is why most people complain about it.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of straw, spice, light yeast and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of straw, spice and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering spiced straw finish.

Draft. Some brett, some phenols, some funk going on on the nose. Pour is hazy gold with a light head. Flavor is all right, but has an odd apple-cider overtone to it. It got better with food (Schnitzel Holstein) -- but most saisons do that anyway. Finished clean enough. All right, I suppose.

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Single bottle. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Aroma of bananas, moss, some spice. Tastes like bread dough and some kitchen spice with banana at the end. Really thin, watery mouthfeel. Decent enough for the style but not something I’d get again.

Bottle; poured a dark gold color with a smaller light white head. Aroma of yeast, bread, brett, honey and farmhouse. Flavor was a touch watery but ok. Lacking some complexity of the better examples. Palate was a bit harsh.

Arayaga2 (1810) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Gold with thin white head, and a pear ester and sulfur aroma. Taste is the same, and very mildly malty and sweet. Not bad, but nothing to it, really. $2/12oz

mokanmikey (7) - Kansas, USA - FEB 15, 2013 does not count
Got this beer hoping it would be similar to Boulevard Tank 7, nice color and carbonation slight sour smell but lacking body. Light and under performing. Hoped for more.

Frank (3015) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2013
This pours perfectly clear w/ a scant head of large bubbles. The nose is of banana-y Belgian yeast w/ a sort of a not-quite-sulfur-like overtone which is not entirely unpleasant in context. This is very much on the sweet side for something billing itself as a farmhouse ale and as a result comes off as somewhat sticky and sluggish. Brisk carbonation does help to cut this somewhat though. This stuff is drinkable but hardly a stellar example of the style.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Pours a light orange with no head to speak of. Aroma is vanilla and some spices. Tastes pretty light. No funk to speak of. A touch dry with very faint Belgian yeast notes. Could use more bulk.

Not really a Shinet brewery fan - beyond Shiner Bock. (yea I know its speotlz) ( yea I know not the right spelling). This, however, is one of their better beers. Light - nice flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
