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.

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light golden color with a frothy white pillowy head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, yeast, bubblegum sweetness, and fresh grass. Taste is spicy hops balanced nicely with grassy, citrus, yeast and light sweet flavors. Light body, light to medium carbonation.

ericdevin (874) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, slight amount of lacing. Aroma doughy, yeasty, bready. Maybe some fruity esters, too. Body very lively, finish is slightly tart and very abrupt. Itís not awful, but itís not top level, either.

Nose is the best part then it goes downhill. Big fruity spicy nose. Taste is okay fruity and sour. But a bit bland. Not a lot going on. Wegs pic six.

Clear straw pour with a thin white head. Aroma is spice and yeast. Taste is spicy hops, caramel, and yeast. Thin body. I like this more than most Shiner beers. Donít know why itís showing as a sour though.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a ever so slightly hazed, pale yellow body with a smallish, white head.

Smell: Slightly sweetish sniff of saltine, pils malt. Pinch of ground clove and coriander. Low peach fruitiness, as well as some lemony citrus.

Taste: Soft, crackery pilsner maltiness with a light sweetness. Particularly tangy citrus taste pops in alongside the spicy phenols. Dash of AlbariŮo, little hint of peach. Some acidity. Flirts again with the initial sweetness. Clove-like spiciness and light fruitiness on the semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itís saison-lite, and saison-like, really.

blutt59 (6028) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2012
bottled, clear orange colored pour with no foam, decent grainy slighlty sweet aroma, actually has some depth to it with husky grain and sweet cherry flavor, maybe light sour finish

Aurelius (4316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pleasant, lightly sweet, light candied aroma -- fruity, honeyish. Bright, light orange-gold, clear; good label, twist off longneck. Lightly tangy, a little astringent, mildly mineral, biscuity at times. Some residual spicy bitterness, but not much. Publix. Fair.

johnnyoski (444) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Light amber color with a small, bubbly white head. Lemon zest and funky yeast aroma. Light funky flavor with a crisp, bitter apple finish. Watery texture with average carbonation. Refreshing, just like its billed and not half bad either but nothing I would seek out.

rougeau13 (2019) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Golden with an off-white head. Aroma of spices, grain, and a hint of citrus. Taste is decent; kind of a weak, grainy saison. Light medium bodied.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Golden pour medium head. Lightly spicy with faint citrus notes. Not sure why people think its a saison though because it doesnít taste like that girly belgian piss.
