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.

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 (5633) - 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 (988) - 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. It’s not awful, but it’s not top level, either.

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

EithCubes (5269) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle, screw-top. Nose is fruity, jammy with clove and pretzel (sour)dough, sweet with floral and orange citrus character. Generic spice. Pours a dark clear golden with orange highlights and little carb, soapy white head. Taste sweet and lightly bitter, stinging crispness despite not all that much carb, more of that pretzel note, spicy hops without any fruit or citrus. Light-medium body finishes relatively clean despite increasing grainy blandness. Amazing how this basically turned into BMC in the mouth, or even a malt liquor.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a slightly hayish yellow with less than one finger of off white head. Aroma is a bit spicy, floral, and a slight malt hint. Taste is full of grain, not too complex a slight spicy finish but weak body and weak palate. Not an amazing beer, but refreshing.

Braudog (6041) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Pale and musty yellow with a big poofy white head. Drinks with what’s become the new American standard for quasi-representative sample of a European classic. But this is a bit too sudsy, a bit too American. (#5430, 2/6/2013)

Draft. A- Spices, apples, pears. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Light spices, low bitterness, light fruits. P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish. O- A good ale, but not as much complexity as I would hope for from a Farmhouse. Subtle fruit tones and not a lot of bitterness in this one.

Got a bottle from a friend who is into Shiner. Light amber color is crystal clear, but really indicative of "farmhouse". Rocky white foam laces somewhat. Faint fruity aroma, maybe strawberries. Balanced flavor, somewhat sweet to me. Kind of gets closer to Hefeweizen. Finishes smooth. Decent brew to drink but, in my opinion, this is not "farmhouse".
