Shiner FM 966 Farmhouse Ale

This is a 5.7% ABV spring seasonal farmhouse style provision ale from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner, Texas, maker of Shiner beers. It takes its name from the number of the farm to market road that is just south of the brewery.

The beer pours honey golden with a touch of haze. It is dark enough to throw a tinge of orange. There is a short, thin head of white foam. The aroma is spicy, herbal, and very floral with lots of marigolds. The taste is very floral, yeast and spices, lots of marigold, just like the aroma, with a touch of honey sweetness in the background. It has a nice burning carbonation. You are going to love this one or hate, but I don't see much middle ground here.
