I am a Guinness fan and this Farmhouse Ale is an excellent reminder of it's goodness. The smell is above average and the mouthfeel and taste compliment each other and leave no bad aftertaste. My flavor preference is currently the dark and full flavored beer and this is one I would drink again and buy in bulk in the future.

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.
