Poured on tap in a tulip. 3 finger bright white head, deep orange pale. Gorgeous.
Nose is bright and citrusy with a definite barnyard funk. Not overwhelming but provides just enough of a nice bret complexity. Not pungent or in your face, but delicate, intricate and fresh.
Citrusy hops hit first then mellow out to the beer funk which is just perfect. Hay, lemongrass, grapefruit, and bitter citrus rind dominate. Nice soft hint of wheat and although the malt backbone is present, it is understated and supports the hops.
Mouthfeel is bright and creamy. An initial burst of carbonation quickly dissipates into a smooth and dry finish, which still retains the tartness of the brew. Alcohol warmth shows up at the back of the tongue and rounds out nicely.
Overall a great offering from prairie. I'd recomend this for anyone venturing into the Bret category but not quite into the full-funkiness. A great hybrid beer.

Acquired via trade
Murky, hazy golden straw color. Quickly forming head of white bubbles, but not a persistent one. Spots and smears of stick left down the glass.
As the name of the beer implies, this has a very standard, very straightforward saison aroma--which I like very much. Grain, sweetness, dry hay and grass, earthy notes, and some cracker and cereal. Some initial Band-Aid at cooler temperatures.
The flavor is similar to the aroma: sweet grain, hay and grass, mild pepper and lemon notes, moderate bitterness. Incredibly drinkable.
Medium to fuller in body for the style with moderate carbonation. I suppose I wish the body was a bit more lively.
Very nice, traditional saison.

A - Golden Color. light carbonated head. little tiny bubbles. 2 full inches of head that dissipates quickly. but never fully. a single stream of tiny tiny bubbles come up from the bottom.
S - light citrus. orange, grapefruit.
T - high carbonation. tiny bit of hops. orange and grapefruit. not bitter what so ever.
M - carbonation hits with a small punch. get a tingle on the tongue. Little bit slippery on the tongue.
O - This is really nice. low ABVs make this real drinkable. real light on the tongue. altho the high carbonation makes this bubble in the tummy. so can't have too many. It could be a bit thicker. that being said - i would buy this again.
