Cloudy banana peel yellow with a soapy white head that leaves some light lacing on the glass. Mostly yeast driven with black pepper, coriander, and general floral notes standing out. Hopping is mild lending more floral notes and fresh grassy bitterness. Despite the lower gravity nothing is sacrificed in terms of flavor or interest. Good dryness with a lingering bitterness. Doesn't come across as thin, which might be expected. The only major fault in my mind is that this knocked Standard out of the rotation. I wish there was room for both. Great to have a true local session beer though. A great light (but not "lite") option.

This was my first Prairie beer after obviously hearing quite a lot of great things about them. To be honest, I really don't care for it. Hop bitterness and peppery saison yeast is about all i'm getting, unfortunately not smelling or tasting any of the citrus or fruit that some have noted. Not terrible but just not something I would buy again.

Coming out of a stubby 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Very heady throughout the session, the beer's color is pale sunlight with bubbles running through the body. It smells like a saison with vague spices, bubblegum, mint, and a note of manure like you're wandering around a barnyard. The beer has a spicy, grassy, flavor overall. Not only that, but it brings some tartness to the palate as well. It's light, airy, easy drinking, and was an excellent drink to go with dinner.

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.
