COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few centuries ago, during the cold winter months, farmhands in Europe brewed a Ďseasonal provisioní 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.

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Smells lightly fruity. Pours translucent yellow with a little white head that fades down. Taste is a little fruity and it feels over carbonated, but itís not unpleasant at all. I can dig it but Iím not a fan.

boxofrane (2056) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. There is a lot of bubbles in the glass. The aroma is cheap euro lager. The taste is absolutely an insult to the saison style. Do not get this.

John25 (366) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear bright orange, no head. The aroma is citrus, spice, tart yeast, and grain. The taste is light and sweet with a touch of spice. There's a light green apple note but, not much else going on. The palate is crisp with a good amount of carb. Nothing special here, wouldn't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours chill hazy gold with minimal head. Nose is bready pale malt, orange marmaladey fruit. Tastes somewhat sweet, with pale malt, orangy fruit, mild hops, mild funk, and a complex finish. Not bad.

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is some banana, spice, cloves, wheat notes. Some earthy character to this, some pear and other sweetness too. Otherwise this beer is a bit on the average side, not horrible, but just so-so.

Straight from bottle at happy hour. Smooth and light feeling. Easy drinking as with most Shiners. Just okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2014
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of dough and fresh cut grass. Tastes of pear, dough and fresh cut grass and light peppery finish. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with decent carbonation. Pretty bland for a saison. Not much flavor and really light.

TheBeerGod (5177) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazed gold with a medium, foamy white head. Aroma is fruity and citrusy with soft spice notes, grains, grass and malt notes. Taste is fruity and grassy with yeast, spice, flowers, grains, soft malt and light bready notes. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly and lively carbonation. Ends with more spice and yeast, fresh fruit, light malt, toasted bread, soft grains and grass. Not bad!

ericdevin (669) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, slight amount of lacing. Aroma doughy, yeasty, bready. Maybe some fruity esters, too. Body very lively, finish is slightly tart and very abrupt. Itís not awful, but itís not top level, either.

airrick2003 (447) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Appearance: clear copper color, pours with a small white head that fades away pretty quickly Aroma: apricot, fruity, some light malt, Taste: coriander, citrus, light light bitterness on the finish, leaves mouth dry, very light mouthfeel Overall: this tastes nothing like a farmhouse ale, think more along the lines of fruit beer, very light body, a session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
