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.

2/18/2013. From bottle. Hazy straw yellow with a white head. Bready and malty aromas with light fruit, spices, hay. Very light body and watery with diluted flavors. Many better options out there.

Shiner typically puts out some watery stuff and this is not an exception. However, it does have an interesting smell and taste. A little spice and bitterness on the front end with a dry, crisp finish.

COMRADEJOSH (264) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Wonderful sweet fruit aroma. Sweet and sour taste which spot on for this style. Bready aftertaste on the palate for this pale straw colored beer. Completely makes up for the other shiner abominations I have had in the past. A little on the thin side but very drinkable probably from being filtered.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with a frothy white pillowy head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, yeast, bubblegum sweetness, and fresh grass. Taste is spicy hops balanced nicely with grassy, citrus, yeast and light sweet flavors. Light body, light to medium carbonation.

A light and dry saison. Yellow, and a fair amount of carbonation. Some light spice and a hint of sour grain. Its ok.

patrick767 (3407) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
bottle - Clear yellow pour, white head, mild yeasty and grainy malt aroma. The flavor is of sweet, grainy malt, some mild bittering hops, yeast, and a slight hint of citrus. It’s light to medium bodied and on the bland side. Okay.

Bottle. Clear golden color. Really nice, long long lasting head. Great lace. Aroma is spicy, a little funky. Taste is also spicy and a little funky.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Rated on 3-08-2013 at Cap ’n Cork Covington Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a small off-white head with a short retention, transparent body, one ring of lacing, very little visible carbonation, and a yellow hue. The Aroma is malty, funky, light yeast, grassy, sweet, and spicy. The Taste is sweet, some pine hops, malty, spicy, peppery, and has a dry finish. The Palate is lightly tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is quaffable, but the flavor did not set the world on fire enough for me to want to drink this beer again.

Bottle. Just okay, a bit if an off taste may be sour, lighter body, thin head. Not one to pick again.

DrSilverworm (5051) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Totally clear golden yellow color. Thin, slightly off-white sort of bubbly head. A couple short ropes and dots of lace. Kind of a grassy, lightly citrusy, spicy floral earthy aroma. More hop than expected, not too bad, with a nice yeast character. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation, with a more dry finish. Just a light bit of mustiness. Taste is light bitter, little slightly tart sweetness. Bigger spiciness. Solid take on a farmhouse - much better than expected.
