Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle.
Pours a nice slightly hazy mild copper color with some golden honey hues. There is a nice 1 inch white head that is pretty dense and frothy. When held up to the light the brew has a nice amber brightness.
Aroma is pretty delicious dry yet resinous grassy hop notes come up first. Fresh cut grass with some mild citrus notes of tangerine and some nice mild piney notes. There is some good dry and earthy grain notes present in the nose as well.
Flavor starts off with yummy earthy grain and some nice malty sweetness. Notes of pear juice and some apple can be perceived mixed in with the earthyness and dryness. Then there is a nice grassy and herbal hop note with some mild citrusy undertones that gives the beer a nice complete roundness. The hop notes are present but not overwhelming and are balanced perfectly by some more yeasty esters and sweetness that jumps out along the middle of the ride. The body is nice and clean with a good dry finish. Notes of funk and some cornhusk are definitely present along with the grainy earth tones.
Yet to have a bad beer by Prairie. These guys know how to make Saisons. Nice traditional notes mixed i with a tinge of Americana and NZ at that.

12 ounce bottle purchased from Party House Liquor (Chino Hills, CA), on to the beer:
There's tint to the orange-yellow color, topped with a billowy head which leaves spots of lace on the walls of the glass. With one smell, I had an idea that I was working with a saison. The aroma has lemon peel, vague spice, a moderate farmhouse stink so common of the style. Regarding its taste, it's a somewhat sour flavor overall which doesn't really get funky. Slightly tart lemons, a kick of grass, and vague citrus make the flavor. With its drying and spiced finish, this beer was a pleasant pairing with a home grilled steak.
