A- slightly hazy gold with a large white head that fades to a finger and leaves suds of lace.

S- upfront is big orange peel with some sweet grain and cardamom underneath. A little bit of wit-like metallic shows as it warms.

T- candy sweetness with just faint notes of citrus hanging on throughout the finish.

M- moderate carbonation with a dry finish that helps dissipate the sweetness.

O- I wasn't expecting much from a Shiner Farmhouse beer but wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately this beer is both a bit muddled and bland without enough character from the hops or yeast.

12oz brown can with a freshness date.

Crystal clear dull amber hue, very bubbly with a decent amount of lace. Ripe pears, spice, bready malt and hay in the nose. Slick medium body, mild crispness. Rustic graininess meets a mild hop bitterness, slightly spicy with a fruity backing. Faint medicinal tone with a ghost like broth note. Finishes spicy and semi-dry.

Decent and expected this. While the whole Saison / Farmhouse thing is way over done now Shiner took a good stab at it.

Appearance: slight haze, golden yellow, fizzy white head

Aroma: refreshing fruitiness bordering on citrus with a slight tartness. Slight pale malt aroma. Overall zesty aroma

Taste: Zesty refreshing taste of citrus fruit and soft pale malt background.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy and medium bodid

Overall: Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Quite refreshing, as the style should be, but lacking in citrus fruitness that could take this ale to a new level. Slightly overcarbonated as well.

Smallish white head settles pretty quickly above a clear bright golden colored beer.

Light soapy yeastish mixed with sour grain malts and throw in a touch of peppery spices in the aroma of this farmhouse ale.

The grain malts come through more in the taste, it loses most of the soapiness and yeast attributes I got in the aroma, but the very light peppery spices are still there.

A light dryish aftertaste with a bit of the grains and light pepper like spices clinging on with this light bodied drink.

Not overly impressive other than I happened to drink this on a hotter day and my air conditioner has yet to be turned on for the summer, so I guess to it rates better than it would have on most days.
