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.

A very nice little Saison from Shiner, Texas. Pretty soon, I hope, this style will be made standard by all breweries across the United States.

Bottle.
Pours a decent cheddar orange with a lively body and a nose of honeyed grass and light straw. Flavor is a light mixture of spicy hay, morning dew spiked with light rose, and a touch of honey. Average mouthfeel. I like this beer; itís light, refreshing, and reminds me of a Hill Country spring morning. Mission accomplished.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a moderate frothy white head. Nose is a little sour with citrus elements to it. Taste is light and crisp with some sourness to it as well, though itís not overpowering. Good brew.

jmagnus87 (2732) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of bready bubble gum yeast, pears and some light baking spices. Taste is light sweet. Bready spicy yeast and a little pear. Medium bodied with a slick and slightly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Probably one of the better Shiners Iíve had.

JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
Appearance: clear pale yellow with a short white head. Aroma: surprisingly fruity, with a general stone fruit note over some peppery yeast and light crackery grains. Taste: light saltine cracker, some honey, light yeast, juicy fruit gum. Finish: lingering fruity and crackery notes, with a hint of lingering yeast. Notes: I was totally surprised by how much this didnít suck. Wasnít super saison-y in the traditional sense, but it was light, crackery, fruity, and well-balanced, and very easy to drink. Probably rating higher than I should because it outperformed by expectations.

Finhead (1219) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Clear, golden pour with a small, white head. The aroma is lightly spiced and has mild cheese and butterscotch notes. It has a light body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is just mildly sour with a fairly clean finish.

Bright, cider-like, refreshing, clean and crisp. Not too hoppy; not too malty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. A deep gold body with a long lasting white head. A funky leather nose with some pears. There is also yeasty dough. This tastes of sweet donuts and apple core. There is also some peanuts along with caramel. Lightly funky with some bread crust.
