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.

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is earth, spices, light yeast, and herbs. Easy on the palate, heavy spice, florals, coriander, and a clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a strong clove yeast and pepper. Thin mouthfeel with a light spice and honey with sweet finish. Easy to drink, a good saison from Spoetzl.

nuplastikk (4568) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12oz bottle. FIltered orange-tan body, active big carbonation bubbles rising. Thin, soda like head. Definitely in the spiced US variety, doesnít bare much resemblance to a good Belgian example in itís mouthfeel. Cleanish in itís filtration, but kind of a flowery mess with the spices sort of limiting and hop flavors. A touch grainy in the finish. Drinkable, but not that impressive of an offering.

Steverus0 (188) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JAN 18, 2013
While this is a spicy and tasty farmhouse style, it lacks some of the robust character I would expect of the style. While this spring seasonal isn't quite robust enough to stand up to the still cold spring days by the fire, the warm hints of an oncoming summer that tease from time to time match we'll with this spicy brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle - Pours clear golden with a foamy white head. Nose is yeasty bubble gum, pear, light spicing, and a bit of astringency, almost like subtle rubbing alcohol. Taste has a bit of the astringency as well, though it comes off more like latex or plastic. Lightly spiced pale malt, dusty yeast, and more pear/fruit cocktail on the finish. A bit of the hopping comes through on the finish as well. Soft and smooth in the mouth. I think this one gets unfairly docked because itís Shiner, but that said itís pretty unremarkable.

Iím glad I didnít look this beer up before I drank it, I probably wouldnít have tried it if I did. Had it last night at my sisters, she bought it because she liked the label. Aroma was citrus and hops. A very refreshing beer that tasted great on a warm evening.
