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.

Pours orange gold. Smell is lightly funked malt and faint bandaid and alcohol. Taste is crisp dry malt. Like a farmhouse light. Drinkable but not my favorite.

12 ounce bottle. Well, it’s hot as Tejas here in PDX tonight. So I guess this suits. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A light fruity and yeasty nose. The flavor is mild bread, lemons, some zest, a bit of yeast, this is like a saison-light and is pretty decent.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. Amber with a fast fading white head; herbal aroma; soft in the mouth with a vegatable taste and a sweet grainy body; and a dry herbal finish with a touch of spice. Not bad.

Not very good. Leaves a funky taste in the mouth but I guess it is drinkable depending on your choices.

Bottle to glass. Small head that dissipates quickly. Lacing was decent. Nose has some fruit and light grain to it. Pretty well carbonated. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sample at Ginger Man Dallas. Clear yellow-orange color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruit, spice and grain. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, fruit and mild spice. The finish is fruity with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
Appearance: clear pale yellow with a short white head. Aroma: surprisingly fruity, with a general stone fruit note over some peppery yeast and light crackery grains. Taste: light saltine cracker, some honey, light yeast, juicy fruit gum. Finish: lingering fruity and crackery notes, with a hint of lingering yeast. Notes: I was totally surprised by how much this didn’t suck. Wasn’t super saison-y in the traditional sense, but it was light, crackery, fruity, and well-balanced, and very easy to drink. Probably rating higher than I should because it outperformed by expectations.

stevoj (3931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2014
Surprised, this was actually a pretty nice saison. Elements of honey, meadow, some floral notes, and the yeast lilt. Soft and easy to drink. One of Shiner’s better brews.

scarletfire65 (1323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma is dirt, mushroom, yeast. Taste is fruity, light yeast, light spice, bit of lemon. Easy drinking. By no ones standards should this be considered a saison. If you told me it was a kolsch or a golden ale i would believe it.

TempeCoyote (63) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours light yellow with frothy white head. Biscuity scent with faint fruity notes of Belgian yeast. A good light beer but not a pot of straw or common horse blanket flavors associated with a farmhouse. Still a pretty decent light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
