4.25/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a CS Cellar Reserve balloon at 50 degrees.
Pours a hazy orange/yellow. Thick head dissapates leaving heavy lacing. This looks great!
Smell reminds of a forest, lol...sort of. Fresh grass, fresh hop aroma, citrus, and a little mustiness. The smell on this is really good. I wanted to give it a 4.25, but it is definitely closer to 4.5 than 4.
First taste is slightly bitter and tart. There is a little bit of citrus tang along with hop flavor. It's kind of a hard thing to pinpoint, but the 'Hoppy Saison' nails it.
There is a slight creaminess to this. You can feel it cover your mouth with flavor, if that makes any sense. Carbonation is about PERFECT.
This beer is really what I search for. There is a ton of flavor in a 5.2% beer. I really enjoyed this a lot and look forward to trying more of Prairie's offerings in the future. (Also, from what I understand, this is the brewer from Redbud....Cuvee 3 and 4 are awesome beers too....someone is doing it right!)
