Don't see a bottling date but this was released in the last month or two.
A: Pours a very cloudy light orange. So cloudy it looks like a witbier. Enormous effervescent white head. Head fades very slowly with great head retention. Spotty but thick chunks of lacing.
S: Very citrusy. Little bit of a lightly tart and dryness to it too. Kinda funky in fact.
T: Big citrus up front. Orange peels primarily I'd say. Grainy malt with a little funkiness and some cloves. Little bit of white wine aura, especially in the finish. Black pepper in the finish too, standing alone in the aftertaste.
M: Nice medium body, somewhat drying.
O: Nice hoppy saison from Prairie. A little bit hoppy, a little bit funky, a little bit wine-y, a little bit spicy. Nice balance of flavors and quite complex overall. Really a quite nice american style saison.

Poured into my DFH snifter...
A. Pale gold, foggy, bountiful three finger head, very thick lacing, pillowy foam.
S. Grape skin, yeast, apple, honeysuckle, wine, sage.
T. Honey, white wine, apricot, grass, cracked pepper.
M. Bone dry, well-carbed, sweet on the edge of the palate but with a cutting, herbal, bitter, dry finish.
O. A very nice beer with an out of balance mouthfeel. Finish is extremely yeasty and dry, to the detriment of all the other pleasant qualities the brew presents. Even so, it glows with craftsmanship. This was made with love and the quality of the ingredients is notable in the flavor profile, which is complex and enjoyable. It's just too bad the finish is so over the top in its dryness and bitterness.
