3.95/5  rDev +4.5%
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 +0.3%
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.
