Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass.
Pours a medium hazy straw color, couple fingers of head with decent retention.
Smells nice, cloves, slight barnyard and sourness.
Tastes interesting with banana present, not unlike Heferweizen in some respects. Good sourness with surprising lingering bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel was clean, and dry.
Overall I enjoyed this beer, it was surprising in some respects.

Exhilarating flavor leaving your tongue tingling and craving more. Perfect balance of fruity nodes and bitter hope. Can spend a day in the sun with this well crafted beverage. Only complaint is ABV. Not much risk. With that being said, this is a beer I would definitely reach for again and again.

Color looks like an unfiltered beer or almost even a mead. Quite an interesting bite to it. Slightly tangy. Overall good beer from Oklahoma.

Look - Gold/straw colored. Thin head. Hazy,
Smell - fruity, Orange, Floral hop aroma, A touch of pepper.
Taste - Citrus and spice, grainy malt. Grassy finish. Nice balance of flavors.
Feel - Low/moderate body with a touch of creaminess, prickly medium/high carbonation. Dry
Overall - Can't think of anything bad to say. I could drink a bunch of these. For the alcohol level there is a great amount of flavor and body.

Straw to golden in color with considerable cloudiness. A half inch of dense off white foam is present. Brussels lacing. I smell a hint of lemon,a touch of grassy flavor, and pale malt. The taste is lemon and then a blend of a grassy flavor and pale malt. The mouth is crisp and heavily carbonated.

I love Prairie beers, this one is well made, light and crisp with a bit of citrus and grassy notes. Overall this beer to me is only OK - doesn't stand out like some of their "bombs" ... just not my particular favorite but overall nothing wrong with this beer.

12oz bottle, with town square imagery depicted on the front label that is much more European in origin than anything I would think could come from Oklahoma.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden straw hue, with rising effervescence, and three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and mildly bubbly bone-white head, which leaves some low-lying raincloud lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of crackery, grainy pale and wheat malt, gritty earthy yeast, muddled dry drupe fruit, banana chips, generic citrus rind, white pepper and further indistinct savoury spice, and leafy, grassy, and weedy hops. The taste is bready, doughy pale malt, a certain wheaty spiciness, somewhat phenolic yeast, a pear and apple skin fruitiness, understated lemon and orange peel citrus notes, white and black pepper, and some waning leafy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is surprisingly light in its tame frothiness, the body a sturdy medium weight, and so-so smooth, the yeast and hops kind of disobeying the campsite rule here. It finishes pretty dry, the malt, yeast, fruit, spice and hops alike finally agreeing to terms.

A pretty tasty home-grown saison, very fresh and emulating of the old-world goodies. The extra hoppiness and lower alcohol goes a long way towards this one's drinkability, which I would imagine being improved further by a sunny patio or harvest moon. Anyways, what's with the Italian spelling of 'beer' in the name here?
