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.

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.

Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Has a banana, clove and Belgian like aroma. Flavor is nowhere as vivid as its aroma. Boring.

Pours from the bottle a very pale golden with a distinct amount of carbonation and a medium-dense amount of foam. The aroma hints at a bit of sweet doughy pilsner malt, definite spicy yeast esters which come across as slightly bubble-gum and clove, also a very slight sweet floral hop aroma. Flavor is light pilsner malt followed by a sour and somewhat acidic tang. Bitterness is kept pretty low, and the dry finish is accentuated by the high level of carbonation. I wish I didn’t have to buy a 6-pack just to try it.

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Color is a clear light gold with white head. Nose is an earthy sour with a hint of banana. Taste is the same with a somewhat creamy body. Lacking the complexity and fullness of many saisons, it feels like it tries the same roads but doesn’t go far enough down them.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of hay, grain, yeast and orange citrus. The flavor is not as good as the aroma. I get a ton of grain and hay notes, as well as a little bit of citrus and some yeast. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Malty aroma has a sharp, fruity and slightly yeasty overtone. Pours a nice clear yellow with a thick but not persistent ivory head. Flavor is crisp and malty, subtly fruity and yeasty, not strong. Texture has average fizz and viscosity, though the tingle does persist a little. So-so overall, but fine for sipping on a hot day or while watching a ball game.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Bright straw, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Bright barnish nose, a little mealy and wheaty too.   Has a slight peppery aspect to it.   Soft spicy start, almost like super bright straw with some candied caraway or something.   Hard to pinpoint.   Its not a floral spice, more like some herbal spices.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dull spicy finish, mealy, a touch wheaty.   Not bad, but not bright at all.   Also too mealy, needs to be more bubbley and wheaty.   I’ve had worse.

12oz picked up a while back at Brewer’s Haven in Boise... Pours with a short lasting white head... little lacing... the brew is slightly hazed pale golden. Nose shows cracker like maltiness along with a lightly spicy element that I associate with clove... a little bit of lemon too, but that could be my mind playing tricks on me. Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose... a bit more clove and a light peachy fruitiness. Overall like a saison "lite"... still pretty drinkable... a good introductory Belgian style

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.
