Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Little Lobster on the Prairie is a Farmhouse Saison that is lightly hopped with Galaxy hops and fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. This yeast brings notes of funky, musty, overripe fruits as well as light barnyard notes staying true to the farmhouse style. Refermented in the bottle with Blue Lobsters house yeast, this beer should be decanted and opened carefully as this beer is still developing in the bottle.

This was a collaboration brew with Prairie Artisan Ales. Thank you to Chase and Colin Healey!

thanks to TATURBO and ICCULUS for a taste of this beer!

750 C&C format bottle. No pop as the cork leaves the bottle neck.

poured into a SP wine stem.

Appearance: translucent pale straw yellow bodied beer with large and billowy bone white head. Slowely drops down to a thick cap leaving thick lacing on the glass.

Smell: Citrusy and bretty saison. Slightly sweet grainy and pale malts. White pepper. Fruity brett. Light bitterness.

Taste: Slightly sweet malty saison. Bready malts. White pepper and fruity brett just like the nose predicts. Moderate yeast and light barnyard funk. Hints of pears and white grape. Slightly musty funk.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean beer. Very drinkable.

Overall: This is a nice saison! I wouldnt mind having a few of these in my beer fridge during the dog days of summmer to help beat the heat! Great collaboration beer by Blue Lobster and Prairie! This is my first Blue Losbster beer and I would be willing to try other beers from them.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Huge white head. Hazy pale body. Thick collar.

Smell - A little bretty. Sweet pale malts. Very yeasty. Some stone fruit.

Taste - Brettiness is more potent. Yeastiness too. Almost tangy. Lemony and some apricot.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Moderate earthiness to balance a hefty malt body.

Overall - Enjoying this. Great fruity and bretty flavors.

750 ml from ProperPinter. Thanks, Dan.

Served into a 6oz wine glass. /TØØØØØØØØRRRSSSTT //shakes fists at heavens.

Beautiful pour. Strawburn pour with billowing light, bright white head. Pleasant fizzy dissipation and good tight carb bubbles ring the glass throughout.

Smells of fresh straw, green apples, with mashed green grapes - it is faintly peppery.

Taste leaves little on the table, hitting the high notes of sour fruit and white pepper well. There is little funk - right in my wheelhouse really - and I enjoy that there is nearly no trace of alcohol in the traditional "boozy" sense. The faint alcohol burn at the death is magnified by the light, clean finish.

The best of the limited offerings I've had from Blue Lobster and possibly the best of the limited offerings I've had from Prairie.

Thanks for another east coast Saison, Keith!

A - Effervescent and bright, this hazed pale yellow beer is topped by a fleeting and fizzy white head that leaves little lace behind.

S - Rustic and earthy, Little Lobster has a subtle barnyard Brett nose with easy-to-digest funk transitioning into lemon citrus and smooth spicy yeast.

T - Grainy pale and sweet pilsner malt provide a "beer"-like base that shows through the transparent wild yeast flavor. Notes of the rustic farmhouse yeast incorporate subtle spice into the mix, nicely melding with lemony citrus on the back end.

M - Little Lobster has an effervescent carbonation level that dances on the tongue as it passes by smoothly. Feeling somewhat flat mid sip, this saison finishes with a very nice dryness and relaxed tartness.

O - Little Lobster on the Prairie is a wonderful American-brewed saison that has plenty of Belgian-inspired yeast character but it's bigger malt base which boosts the alcohol also gives this subtly funky beer an actual "beer" flavor; grainy pale malt. Regardless, it's better than most of the available saisons from the states!

750 mL bottle courtesy of CooperEllis pours a fairly clear light gold color with a frothy white head. Average retention and lace.

Nose is sweatsock brett, tart bacteria and some sharp citrus aromas. Smells pretty good and pretty funky.

Taste is fairly sour and some serious funk pervades every sip. Rustic and tart, with some fruity notes...it is a bit sweeter than I would like, but it has alot going on. Not all the flavors seem to meld well, and there is a sweaty feet funkiness that I have unintentionally ended up with in some of my homebrews. I would like to see this be a little cleaner with more dryness and more sour.
