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.

This beer was pretty good it was not your average ale beer. It was light on the hops but not on flavor

Bottle to glass. Small head that dissipates quickly. Lacing was decent. Nose has some fruit and light grain to it. Pretty well carbonated. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sample at Ginger Man Dallas. Clear yellow-orange color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruit, spice and grain. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, fruit and mild spice. The finish is fruity with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - 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 didn’t suck. Wasn’t 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.

stevoj (1703) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2014
Surprised, this was actually a pretty nice saison. Elements of honey, meadow, some floral notes, and the yeast lilt. Soft and easy to drink. One of Shiner’s better brews.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dirt, mushroom, yeast. Taste is fruity, light yeast, light spice, bit of lemon. Easy drinking. By no ones standards should this be considered a saison. If you told me it was a kolsch or a golden ale i would believe it.

TempeCoyote (61) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours light yellow with frothy white head. Biscuity scent with faint fruity notes of Belgian yeast. A good light beer but not a pot of straw or common horse blanket flavors associated with a farmhouse. Still a pretty decent light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1298) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours aClear pale golden color with a small head. Aroma of yeast, earthy, bit of fruit sweetness and spice. Taste of fruit sweetness, bit of malt and spice in the background. Just a touch of bitterness and a fairly clean sweetness. Light body, smooth but doesn’t have that bit of farmhouse funk I expected. Not a bad beer just too sweet for me to really enjoy.

Nothing I’m proud of but it was all the gas station had, not bad through compared to bud light

12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear deep gold body with a copper core and supporting a loose weak off white head. The aroma offers up a bit of sugary sweetness and then green apple and red apple slices to go along with a touch of yeasty spices and hay. The taste starts with apple sweetness and then it picks up mild spices just as the body drops out of this leaving a watery sensation. There is also a bit of drying into the finish yet overall this seems too sweet to be refreshing.

I was very disappointed in this beer. It may be sold as an ale, but it looks and tastes like a light lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
