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.

12 oz. bottle for review from Shiner. For a mass-marketed saison, it acquits itself pretty well. General malty smell, with a bit of bubble gum ester after I’ve sipped a bit of it. Pours a golden, clearly filtered color under a thick but fizzy head in my Duvel glass, column of bubbles keeps on coming. Taste has that complex savory quality from wheat malt and what tastes like a Saison yeast, though it’s most likely Shiner’s house strain. No bitterness, just enough to counteract the normal malt sweetness. Definitely not a lawnmower beer, but the beer for after chores and before dinner.

Pours a golden orange with a small white head. Aromas of citrus/ginger. Flavor was kinda of muted compared to the nose.

Kinda bitter/sour at the end. Great aroma but not the finish I want. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"What the hell?! Maybe I’ve been spoiled lately, with a plethora of awesome saisons, but damn this is just weak. When non-offensive is the first thing that comes to mind, I am underwhelmed. Light rustic farmhouse aroma with some light fruit. The flavor, after a thin body, is quite boring, with an utter lack of farmhouse character and just a bit of light fruit, generic sweetness, and a listy dustiness. Booooring."

Not really sure why I decided to try this. It wasn’t horrible. Had it on tap the other day. Poured a clear golden yellow. Pretty sweet, a little overly so. Thin. Meh. Could’ve been worse.

Psytron (1875) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Smell of hops and malts. Orange colour, white head. Aroma of straw, paper, malt and a faint of hop. Fizzy carbon. Medium sweet with slightly watery textiure. Stinging palate.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with white head. Funk and a bit of wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bit of funk. Just ok.
