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.

12 ounce bottle. Well, itís hot as Tejas here in PDX tonight. So I guess this suits. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A light fruity and yeasty nose. The flavor is mild bread, lemons, some zest, a bit of yeast, this is like a saison-light and is pretty decent.

A nice example of a farmhouse style beer, with slightly sweet, slightly spicy hops and a nice aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tan and hazy. Head was less than half a finger and lacing was ok at best. Aroma is pretty good. Bubble gum, yeast, coriander, spices. Flavor is also pretty good. Spices, yeast, and a notable hops presence are forward, accented with coriander, bready malts, and a bit of funk. Body is less carbonated than what Iíd usually expect in a saison, but itís not much of a detractor. Itís pretty easy drinking, and actually quite tasty. Iím quite happy with this one from Shiner. I didnít think theyíd do a saison that well, but itís not bad. Itís not world class, but itís drinkable.

The aroma is slightly funky with mostly a wheat bread like yeast. There is spices, banana, malt, and grassy hops. The appearance is golden. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall nice tasting but thin and slightly watery.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is some funk and grassy hop. Flavor is again with some funk with a slight grainy malt and not much else. It is going in the direction with a nice funk but not much of a flavor profile after that. I wonder what yeast was used? Bonus points for being a saison in a cheap six pack.

12 oz. bottle - Pours a clear golden color with a one finger thick white head. light lacing. Aroma is esters, light spice with a hint of soap. Flavor is fruity esters with a dose of light herbal hops. Light to medium body. A decent drinking beer. Not your typical Saison though.

Tmoney99 (10841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium sweet balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a soft drinkable beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a nice white head that leaves a nice moderate lacing. Aroma is cotton candy, a bit of spice and funk. Taste is sugar with a light tartness. Crisp finish. Makes a nice dessert beer.

Poured from the bottle a coworker brought me to try. Aroma is banana, some clove. Very thin head and thin lacing. Flavour is good, but basic banana ester. Very clear with a slight haze. This doesnít impress but itís a basic farmhouse. I feel like there are far better out there. Palate finishes thin, watery but clean.
