3.95/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 2.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into two 4 oz prairie chalices and 1 high ball

A - Cloudy, and not because of the pour, this beer just isn't very clear. Just a thin lacing as a head, I've poured 2 and was very aggressive on the second pour, because I wanted more head than the first pour, it simply wasn't there.

S - I get a lot of orange, some straw, smells yeast-y

T - The Orange is the most notable thing coming through. I might be crazy here, but I get a black pepper kick to it, but I'm probably off on that. Also maybe some honey, but really the orange is the prevailing flavor.

MF - Carbonation is surprising based on the weak head. Very light-bodied.

O - I know I shouldn't try to compare this to the Prairie Standard, that it replaced, but this doesn't hold a candle to the standard. They describe this as more session-able than the Standard, but the 1% difference in ABV doesn't really do much to make it more session-able, really. Still, at $2.25 a bottle after tax at my local liquor store, it's still a steal. This may be the worst beer I've had from prairie, but it's still better than 80% of what's out there. This brewery continues to put out phenomenal products and really deserves more recognition. keep up the good work.

3.79/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A - Bright golden, hazed, white head is fluffy with great retention and lacing.

S/T - Farmhouse funk, yeast, grass, hay, lemon peel citrus. Smells a little more diverse than the flavor.

M - Light body, very high carbonation creates a voluminous, fluffy mouthfeel. Bone dry finish, little spiciness. A little too carbonated to make it "sessionable."

O - Branded to be sessionable as per the label, but the extremely high carbonation takes away from that a bit, making it a sipper. Overall, a very good saison.

Nice lil summertime brew they have here...
Floral and fruit up front with a bit of spice out back.
This one is quite a pleasure to sip on a hot night or even better with spicy food.
This is very close in taste to Russian River Damnation for almost half the price.
Thumbs up Oklahoma!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the Local Taphouse during 4th of July takeover.

Pours a pale gold colour, slight haze. Small white bubbles for head. Nice retention, slow bead. Pleasant but could be cloudier.

Smells mildly funky. Slightly gritty, barnyardy and phenolic. Fresh enough but nice to-style saison aroma.

Taste is very saisony. Nice barnyard with fresh cut grass, notes of lemon, grapefruit, fairly bitter but nicely mild. Drinkable as fuck, really tasty.

Quite bitty, reasonably dry on the finish. Pleasant.

To style but superbly well made and controlled. Tasty, balanced, fresh.

Serving type: on-tap
