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.

djd07 (3225) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
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.

Tallahassee, FL - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden with and initial white bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has some hints of bubble gum, a bit of grassiness and just a twinge of metal. Flavor has some sweet honey notes, a bit of saffron-like spiciness, some grassy notes, a touch of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing.

Steverus0 (143) - 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

jhgrantjr (416) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle, clear and golden. Had large head that dissipated quickly. Aroma not as strong as other farmhouse ales. Taste is smooth with a balanced body. Not a bad saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

travita (3831) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, goldenish in color, and a light white head. The smell is light spicy, yeasty, fruits, melon, and ok. The taste is the same as the taste with slight corn.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Somewhat sweet aroma with light notes of hay, wheat and funk. Moderately sweet flavor with hints of earth, grass and light malts. Pretty bland but unoffensive.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Almost a finger of head on a hazy, orange/golden colored body. The aroma is nice: banana, grain, lemon and nectarine. The taste is watery with hints of banana and lemon. Too mild. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer but the taste could have more to it.

vtafro (2784) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Has a banana, clove and Belgian like aroma. Flavor is nowhere as vivid as its aroma. Boring.
