Poured into my Dogfish Head IPA glass.
A - Pours a hazy yellow with a big pillowy head that settles to a nice cap with lacing down the sides.
S - Aroma is all Belgian yeast.
T - Taste is a little salty, some lemon notes and peppery with a slightly tart finish. There's a lot going on in here!
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation. Very light and dry.
O - I thought this was a very interesting, complex and tasty beer. This was my first beer from Prairie and they have set the bar high with this one.

Too sweet. Tastes like someone poured a bunch of table sugar into a Brett saison.

Look is a cloudy yellow.
Smell is very sour.
Taste is wine. You can taste the sour hints if the wine up front with some earthynes behind it.
Feel is bitter, shit will hurt a cut in your mouth (so will most sours I guess, Jeeze)
O- It is another awesome brew from Prairie. Something you would very much expect with a sour. Would drink again.

Great sour! It smells really nice and fruit undetones. The mouthfeel is pretty solid for a saison and the sour really comes through.

Pours a murky golden color with a white 1 finger head. Nice staying power. Aroma is straight up funky barnyard mix with some lemon. The Nelson is faint on the nose with a touch of lingering spice. Flavor is where the Nelson hops really come through. It's my fav hop, so no surprise here that I like what's going on. Green onion, subtle spice, cracked pepper, pilsner malts, Belgium yeasts. A lot going on despite such simple components. Body is a touch heavy for what I prefer in the style.
Overall, really good. I prefer this hop in an IPA than a farmhouse. Almost too much raw musky notes going on at once for my liking.

$10 for 500 ml bottle
