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.

My favorite beer! Only wish that Shiner would make ths a year-round beer instead of spring seasonal.

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.

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

Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Light golden pour, split by white head. Horse blanket and bubblegum aroma with some hops. Taste is very similar -- and better than previous reviewers are giving credit for. Another one that if you slam a vogue label brewery label on the bottle, people will be raving and ISO. This is Shiner, though, so no love from the beer dorks. Honestly I had low expectations and this is the best beer I have ever had from this brewery and one of my favorites tonight.
