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 poured into a shaker- served a 95 percent transparent sunfaded wheat straw color, flimsy one finger head formed, collapsed upon itself, and quickly disappeared. Aroma of very light funk, musk, spice, light fruit, and hard water- really, hard water. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes like generic Wheaties, some spice in the middle, finish fades quickly. Try again Shiner.

Pours a slight opaque straw yellow with thick white head, decent lacing. Aroma of bubble gum, yeast, straw, citrus, spices, and slight herbal hops. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice enjoyable brew, especially considering the source.

Draft at Hotel Victor... The nose is skunk/funk, stale malts, grains, cat pee, and a bit of fruit... The pour is a clear golden orange color with a small white head and light lace... The taste is also kinda skunky, some funky note, yeast, fruit, and no hop... It has a fairly light body, feels kinda watery, with average carbonation... Definitely not a winner.

An excellent true farmhouse/saison, first one I’ve had by a major craft-brewery. Slightly (very slightly) sour, tastes a lot like a homebrew Kolsch, as it just has that sort of rough taste you find in non-commercial beer. Compares favorably, imho with Belgian "authentic" farmhouse ales.

Location/Date:Bottle on February 23, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of sweet light malt.
Taste: Sweet, faint spice, yeasty.
Palate:LIght, slightly fizzy

Summary: ot a great saison by any means, but where this one really fails is appearance and palate.

Aroma is bubble gum, spicy yeast and bananas, all very light in intensity. The flavor is spicy yeast, bubble gum and mildly sweet in the finish.

Very good, extremely refreshing and nice if you mix it with a slight drop of orange juice. Very enjoyable and aftertaste too

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of banana, dish rag, pepper, fusel alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Ridiculously husky and dirty tasting. Saison? Hahaha. It’s vaguely Belgian-styled, I suppose, but come on...

Shiner FM 966 has a thick, fluffy, off-white head, a hazy, golden appearance, some streaming bubbles, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is very bursting- spicy pepper, cracker, subtle citrus, and some other indistinguishable smells. Taste is of spicy, yeasty malt, some hops, maybe coriander, white bread, and sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Shiner FM 966 finishes mostly dry, easy drinking, and delicious. Overall, this is nice and well made. I think it’s one that needs to be checked out. RJT

Shiner, keeping it real....ly bad. They make so many below mediocre beers. This one is slightly hazy with a tiny white head. Smells like a crappy sweet lager with a bit of saison yeast. Blech.
