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.

Pours light orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma is lightly funky with some spice. Good start. Med minus body. Flavor is decently funky (tho more would be nice) and lightly spiced. It seems to have a little wheat/cardboard aspect at first, but it washes away. Finishes like a light saison.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Foco. Pours a fairly clear, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Slight skunk/cat pee, a bit spicy yeasty, mild citrusy, dirty aroma that is really not pleasant. A bit herbal, quite spicy yeasty, tangerine/orange fruity, herbal, fairly bitter flavor. This is really not good, but would be an excellent beer for Ernest to rate.
