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.

patrick767 (3536) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
bottle - Clear yellow pour, white head, mild yeasty and grainy malt aroma. The flavor is of sweet, grainy malt, some mild bittering hops, yeast, and a slight hint of citrus. It’s light to medium bodied and on the bland side. Okay.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Shiner typically puts out some watery stuff and this is not an exception. However, it does have an interesting smell and taste. A little spice and bitterness on the front end with a dry, crisp finish.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Clear lightish gold with a thick foamy white head. Nose is dusty and a hint citrusy, with a bit of Pilsen malt and a bit of bread. Taste has a bit more of that bread tone, some dusty hay, some non-bitter orange rind, and an overall note of shiny clean mineral water. Or non-gross plastic. It’s overall okay, a bit under-estery and lacking bite. Like every other Shiner beer. But it’s good to see them try.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, grass, citrus and some spice. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a slight dry finish. A nice and unique beer.

HuskerTan (462) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Draft. A- Spices, apples, pears. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Light spices, low bitterness, light fruits. P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish. O- A good ale, but not as much complexity as I would hope for from a Farmhouse. Subtle fruit tones and not a lot of bitterness in this one.

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2014
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of dough and fresh cut grass. Tastes of pear, dough and fresh cut grass and light peppery finish. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with decent carbonation. Pretty bland for a saison. Not much flavor and really light.
