Pours an opaque golden orange, frothy collar of white around the edges, lasting skim on the surface.

Hugely fruity aroma, big passionfruit notes and some rustic funkiness underneath. The bottle itself had a slight vinegar aroma, but the beer itself didn't.

Sour and full of passionfruit, juicy and tangy. Dry Brett aftertaste. Effervescent and spritzy. Light to medium bodied, very easy drinking, wish I had a few bottles of this.

From a 500 ml bottle into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated July 22, 2014.

A-The beer is light in color, sort-of a banana-yellow hue. There is a bit of haze. The head is big, like three full fingers tall, and shiny white. The head sticks around for a bit too.

S-The aroma is quite nice: a mixture of peach, apricot, pineapple, and juicy tropical sweetness combine with a mild, lemony tartness. Underneath the hops is a mild, dry, bretty funkiness. It is not hugely funked or bretty, but just enough to keep things interesting.

T-The taste is more tart and grassy than the smell. The juicy, fruity hop flavors develop a bit more bitterness and bite. Although there is still some pineapple juice and tropical sweetness, as well as some white grape flavor.

M-As the big head would suggest, this beer is well carbonated. The body is medium in heft with a slightly wet feeling on the palate.

O-This is a nice summertime beer with delicious fruity aromas. This style can be one of my favorites (I love Le Terroir and Red Swingline, for example), and I have enjoyed most Prairie offerings, so it is no surprise that I enjoyed this beer. A little more depth in flavor might help, but as is, I would easily drink more of this.
