2.25/5  rDev -45.5%

Bottle poured into Teku glass. No date on bottle

A- Very light yellow, big white fluffy head that dies down
S- Smells like of mix of white wine and a farm house ale. White grapes. Bready-yeast
T- Not sure what is off here. There is a very medicine after taste. Like the bad cough syrups that your mom kept too long. The front end has so much potential.
M- Thin to medium, but fine for a saison.

O- I've had my share of saisons and I think there must be something wrong here... I can't even call the after taste "funk". I may try to find a fresher bottle and try this again, but for the mean time, I have to give it a 2.25 (632 characters)

2.46/5  rDev -40.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: pours a dull straw yellow color. one finger plus of a bubbly white head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind. Perfectly clear

Smell: tropical fruit juice, white grapes and wine yeast. some tart tropical fruits.

Taste: opens with lots of white grape and vinous character. lots of earthy, leathery brett notes. ends full of grass and slight fruit.

Mouthfeel: super dry but with a strong carbonation. leaves earthiness behind

Overall: smells pretty good but tastes nothing like it in a very bad way. I found this beer very hard to drink due to the harsh earthy acidic flavor and bad dry aftertaste. (620 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Bomber split two ways. Received in a trade, thanks to Newkidroundhere.

Bright hay yellow, cloudy, sediment, with big bottle conditioned looking off white head. Head stays around for a while. Looks like an unfiltered Saison to me!

Not really a fan of the aroma. I know this is a single malt, single hop beer, but the Nelson Sauvin hops give off a really musty white wine, overtly floral pungent character that I don't like. Funky Belgian yeast mix with white wine, a bit too much in the form of one dimensional heavy-hitter components.

Taste follows the aroma, but also presents a mustard seed character. I could swear there is resemblence in this beer to a cheaply made McDonalds cheeseburger. Mustard seed meeting the yeasty funk of Belgian Saison and floral white wine hop character, does not sit well with me.

Body and carbonation are appropriate for Saison. Finishes slightly drying, medium-light body, and carbonation on the high side.

Overall, not a fan of this combination.. just not to my liking personally. (1,020 characters)

Really high expectations for this one - currently #22 on the Top 50 Southwest list and it's got a 93 overall rating. Reviewed live. Distributed by the Shelton Bastards. 7.5% ABV confirmed per the label. 1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with great label art and hood-and-wire cap (aka cage) over a branded cork acquired at me local Whole Foods and served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops and farmhouse yeast. "American farmhouse ale." Reviewed as a farmhouse ale since it clearly identifies as such.

Served cold, straight from me fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Head is horridly thin. No creaminess or frothiness whatsoever. Head retention is very poor - maybe 30 seconds at best. No lacing clings to the sides of the glass.

Body colour is a murky but translucent and semitransparent yellow of subpar vibrance. I wouldn't call it dull, but it's certainly subdued, and in no way alive or inviting. No yeast particles are visible.

Sm: I'm greeted by obvious farmhouse yeast and its accompanying trademark funkiness. Definitely brettanomyces, with a vaguely lactic edge. Straw, clean barley, pilsner malt, cereals, and a generic floral hop character of minimal presence. Papaya, green apple, white wine, ripe vague fruit, mango, and fruit peel. Wheat. White grapes. Pear. It's got a nice light tart sourness. Light citric lemony character.

No alcohol is detectable.

The funkiness is a bit strange here, and I'm not getting quite as on board with it as I usually do. In any case, I'm optimistic, but it's not up to par with the aromas of the best beers I've had in this style.

Aroma is inoffensive and mild in strength.

T: Bready doughy/sourdoughy yeast with a light funkiness accompanied by a young feel. Wheat, pilsner malts, straw, clean barley, and a kiss of crackery malts. Lightly citric, with a lemony note. Some vague fruity notes including white grapes, mango, papaya, and apples. The tartness/sourness I hoped for based on the aroma isn't here. The doughy yeast presence is definitely overdone and detracts from the balance. Build for the style is definitely subpar; no substantial crackery malt presence, white pepper, or milky notes here - not to the mention the lack of spicing. I do get some vague floral hops as well as light citrusy hop character; not quite the assertive complementary presence you'd normally associate with Nelson hops. Not gestalt, but it's cohesive enough I guess.

Unfortunately, I do notice a bit of alcohol presence, which is rare for a beer in the style (regardless of quality).

Extremely poor depth of flavour for the style. Average intensity and duration of flavour. Lacks the complexity and subtlety of the best beers in the style. Feels quite young.

Mf: Has sort of a powdery musty feel to it. Smooth and wet. Too thick for the style and flavour profile. A bit overcarbonated; was this bottle conditioned? If not, that would certainly help. Has something of a bite to it. Definitely needs to be softer. Suits the flavour balance okay, but is far from custom-tailored specifically to it. There's no marriage of texture to taste here. Largely unrefreshing. Has some lemony acidity to it.

Not boozy, hot, oily, gushed, harsh.

Dr: Boy, am I disappointed in this one. As much as I've liked some of Prairie's beers, I'm not sure what happened here. None of the complexity, subtlety, or balance you find in the best farmhouse ales is present here. I imagine it'd get better with age; it feels quite raw and young as-is. Doesn't hide its ABV particularly well, but it's by no means boozy or hot. It's certainly not unique or special, and apart from trades, I won't be buying this again. Drinkable but wanting. Prairie puts out much better work. That said, it's above average overall.

C+

Note: Pouring the yeast from the bottom into the glass yields a more milky appearance that resembles old stale orange juice. It does make the beer a bit better, albeit a bit more sourdoughy. (4,155 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- pours three-finger head with very high retention down to half-pinky sized head, white clouds in color. Not as murky as Birra (varies bottle to bottle), but somewhat cloudy looking.

S- The best part of this beer. Crazy bready yeast, lemon zest, corander?, thin malts

T- Kinda off putting at first with yeasty/cleaning liquid taste. This lingers around for awhile kinda ruining the rest of the experience.

M- Harsh swallow, not creamy at all; harsh carb that hurts throat.

O- I love everything that Prairie does except some Vanilla Noir bottles and this. Can't win them all (581 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy. Small white head. Pale yellow body. Thin collar.

Smell - Herbal and lemony. Pilsner malt. Grassy.

Taste - Grassy and herbal up front. Lemony hops. Nelson is strong. Pilsner malt. Bitter and grassy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light but very bitter. Makes it seem heavier.

Overall - Overwhemled by Nelson, which isn't a bad thing. But one dimensional. (416 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Very nice pale gold with about four fingers of frothy white head that linger. Lots of lacing. Supremely foamy.

S: Excellent saison spiciness, pepper, hints of lemon. Maybe a bit of grassy hay.

T: Similar to the nose, but much weaker. The powerful flavors promised by the smell do not come through. Not bad, just a bit underwhelming after smelling it. A bit watery.

M: Decent carbonation, but a bit thin on the body. Again, watery comes to mind. Something is missing.

O: A decent saison, but for a style I've really come to love recently, this one doesn't stand up to many of the greats I've experienced lately. (646 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

500mL bottle from LambicPentameter (thanks man!). If (and that is a pretty big "if") I've deciphered their hard-to-read code correctly, this was bottled 1/16/15. Served in a goblet.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a fluffy three finger cap of white head. A thin layer of bubbles remains, leaving copious sheets of lace.

Aromas of lemon, grass, wet hay, past-prime white grapes and cracker with a huge, dominant dose of musty, yeasty funk.

Taste follows the nose rather well. A big dose of overarching funk backed by grass, lemon zest, passion fruit, faint grain, a lactobacillus seeming tartness and a mild sugary sweetness. Almost no perceptible alcohol.

Dry, semi chalky, medium light body with fairly sharp carbonation. Potent funk, mild fruit and faintly grainy malt find a nice balance in the finish.

'Merica might not be enough to convert me to a hardcore fan of the style but it is further proof that I need not dismiss it completely. Prairie's particular takes on saison/ farmhouse ales have consistently risen above most others in my opinion. An enjoyable brew that I might not seek out but would certainly not shy away from. (1,145 characters)

3.62/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a very hazy straw color. Plenty of carbonation is noted. A full 1.5" of white head forms, which has excellent retention and lacing. Pretty nice looking brew aside from the turbidity.

Smell: Significant white pepper and spicy notes in this beer. Some bitter grapefruit rind as well. Seems like a unique take.

Taste: Aligns pretty closely with the smell. A small amount of citrus and fruitiness up front, followed by significant white pepper and spicy notes, as well as some grapefruit bitterness on the back end.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is nice and light, and carbonation is just about perfect. Very nice mouthfeel. Overall, I thought this was a pretty good saison. I am not a huge fan of the heavy white pepper and spicy sharpness, so downgraded it a bit. I like more well roundedness out of my saisons, but I definitely still enjoyed it. (865 characters)

500ml bottle. Pours super-hazy/cloudy with shallow but thick head and leaves only a trace of lace. Smells very lemony and herbal, bright n zesty. Tons of funk of flavor. Barnyard and band-aid. Curious to know the IBU, as it seems quite bitter for the farmhouse style. Dense, small, champagne style bubbles. More than a bit yeasty but without excessive sediment.

A rustic and interesting ale. Glad to have tried it. Was not inspired to drop another nine bucks on a bottle. However, as the beer warmed a bit in the glass, flavors opened up and showed more depth, and my opinion improved. Vaguely reminiscent of Fantome Saison, which is high praise. (648 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This beer pours out a very light golden color and is extremely hazy and full of life teaming with carbonation. It has one nice white head, very bubbly at first but then it dissipates into thins bubbles with a light lacing. Grapefruit and citrus fruits are the first thing to hit your nose, followed by some mild malts. I also picked up some mild berry aromas as well. Its light and crisp up front and is semi-dry; it’s tart overall and the citrus fruits reign the flavor arena. It gets a bit drier in its aftertaste, but overall is pretty smooth and very refreshing. It light-to-medium bodied and really hits your taste buds. (627 characters)

3.75/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very cloudy, bright golden yellow color with a 2.5 finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Very bubbly and has good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Possibly over carbonated with tight bubbles forming around the head and item taking a long time to settle.

Earthy aroma with funky farmhouse yeast and a strong musty brett presence that dominates the nose. Barnyard must with grass, straw and funky bugs followed by vinous and light fruit notes, pale malt and citrus hops. The brett and saison yeast is complimented by a complex hop profile that gives off hints of earthy grass and pine as well as some sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes. Slightly lactic amd I'm also picking up a strong bread/biscuit character as well as some light fruit as it warms. The nose on this beer is very complex with a lot of different things going in, not just farmhouse funk. The best way to describe it is that is smells like a hoppy wild wheat beer/saison hybrid with a touch of white wine.

Fuller bodied than expected with tight carbonation up front as well as strong zesty spice and earthy hop flavors that linger over the other notes into a bone dry finish. Dry, earthy and bitter up front with peppery spice, earthy resinous hops and musty bugs followed by funky saison yeast, bread, biscuit and light fruit. Lots sticky, oily hop flavor up front with pine needle, grass and spruce tip along with a very prominent dry, musty brett character that's faintly countered by sweet citrus/tropical fruit, bread, biscuit, apple and pear. A bit one dimensional with all of the dryness from the hops and brett but there is subtle sweetness and a strong bready yeast component balancing things out. Some pineapple and grapefruit hop flavor buried underneath but overall, this beer is just a bit too dry/one note for my preference. Complex for sure, but the dry hops and brett and prominent bready yeast notes overpower almost everything else. (1,985 characters)

Prairie Merica 7.5% abv
Appears cloudy golden peach, white head with fine speckled around the sides of my glass. Aroma tart funky yeast, bright lemon with a hint of band aid and medicinal quality. Flavor is citric lemony with grassy hay earthiness, medicinal phenolics. A bit of funky band aid and tangy yogurt notes, the body is medium with flowing carbonation. Overall it was a bit difficult to consume mainly due to the intense funky house yeast they are using on the prairie. (479 characters)

Murky straw colored with substantial white head. Aromas of passion fruit, white whine, bit of lemon, minerals. Taste is similar. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin but there's a crispness in the finish that is really pleasant. Very good, interesting beer that I hope to come back to. (275 characters)

750ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a very light moderately hazy golden color with two fingers of foam which quickly recedes and leaves no lacing.

S: Lots of juicy Nelson Sauvin hops up front, funky with some berries and white wine. Behind that I get a musty, earthy Saison aroma with a bit of stone fruit to balance. Fruit comes through as kumquat and pineapple.

T: Very dry with a strong musty, barnyardy Brett presence. I still get some fruitiness that I got in the aroma, but not nearly as much. I get a nice earthy flavor as well.

M: Light thickness with moderate carbonation for the style.

O: The aroma on this is very nice. Funky, juicy, earthy - just what I like in a Saison. However, the Brett and dryness dominates the flavor a bit too much. I'd like more clove, citrus, sweetness, just more Saison flavors in general. This certainly isn't a bad beer, but I was expecting more after having a few of their other offerings. (937 characters)

Pours an excellent cloudy glowing lemon yellow with a bright white champagne frothy head.

Smells is appealing and very herbal on the nose. Lots of lemon zest and lemongrass with some peppery yeast notes. Smell leads nicely into the taste and is an excellent example of a beer tasting close to the nose. Nice tartness with lemon and grapefruit bitterness leading into the herbal lemongrass and peppery yeast notes. Moderate to high carbonation lets the full body feel nice and light on the tongue. I would like to try this again and would love to try it on tap. (562 characters)

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.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a teku.

A: Hazy, hay colored hue. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Settles very slowly, leaving dry, sticky residue behind as it does. Never fully settles. Thick beer ring lacing gives way to spotty residue.

S: Yeast, and fermented grapefruit and lemon.

T: Very yeasty. Light bitter hop character. Lemon pith.

M: Light and crisp character. Yeasty aftertaste lingers throughout.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really good. Hazy with a thick white head, and plenty of persistent lacing. Nose is yeasty, with funky citrus. Crisp, hoppy, and yeasty, with some fermented citrus accentuates. Overall, this is a really good quaff. (668 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazed golden/orange color. At first a massive, bubbly white head rises to over two fingers. The foam gently recedes to nothing after a minute. Not much lace is left behind.
S: Very pungent up front. Fruity grapes, pineapple, and mango all intermingle with almost a veggie aroma. Is that a little DMS? Funk, crackers, and biscuit aromas.
T: Along with the nose, a lot is going on here. Pungent fruits like pineapple and mango. Apple skins. Musky funk, bread, and biscuit flavors. A lingering bitterness last for a while.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Not as crisp as I was hoping for, and just a bit watery. I am enjoying the bottle. Which will be gone in no time.

They packed a ton of character into this with only one malt and one hop. That alone is worth the price of admission. I do very much enjoy this. Though not as much as some of the other saisons this wonderful little brewery has to offer. That is not to say it is bad at all, and very much recommended. (981 characters)

Nothing like a good saison on hump day, am I right? 1 pint 9 oz bottle picked up at the Madison Ave. Hy-Vee in Council Bluffs, IA for $8.99. I really enjoyed Bomb! so I’m eager to try another Prairie beer. Poured into a Tallgrass Brewing cervoise style glass at fridge temp.

Appearance: A gentle pour produced a huge three fingers of thin, fizzy, white head. Light straw colored body; cloudy. Totally looked like a Berliner Weisse at first. Eventually about a fingers worth of head remained with some nice, thick lacing/ring on the edges.

Smell: White grapes, light herbs, tart lemon, orange pith, and grapefruit. Light tropical fruit aromas. Some bitterness/pee. Dusty, dirty hay, and light rubber. Strong dry hopping in the nose.

Taste: Up front I get sweet white grapes and tropical fruits. Strong spicy, ammonia yeastiness. rubber and some farmhouse earthiness. Finishes with nice toasted pilsner maltyness. More bitter than I expected.

Mouthfeel: A very lively, prickly carbonation. Light mouthfeel. Little heat. Dry/chalky.

Overall: A hop forward saison. For me, the hops were a little too heavy handed and did some weird things with the brett. It’s almost like someone peed on a barn floor. Once the beer warmed up a pleasant lactic tangyness appeared in the nose and taste. I did enjoy the nice malty finish, and wouldn’t mind seeing more of that. (1,368 characters)

Bottle to Bruery Tulip. Reviewed live.

A - Pours a very hazy straw yellow. Huge 3 fingers of fluffy eggshell head on top, which regresses into a half inch pillow after a few minutes. Splotchy lacing around the glass.

S - First thing that hits is yeast. The Nelson hops are definitely very present with the typical white grape skin and tropical flavors. Something else is present, but I can't quite put my finger on it. It smells... Spicy? Everything is in unison and it's really nice.

T - Starts the same as the nose: Bretty funk up front in the form of a bit of Band-Aid. Pineapple follows along with grape and clean malt. A bit biscuity, but this is not at all about the malt. This is a showcase of Brett and Nelson. It works well.

M - Good deal of carbonation. It's thin, but not watery. Mouth is left with a bit of coating and lots of Nelson on the tongue.

O - Really good beer. Nice use of Nelson hops, and the Brett plays off of them well. Tropical and refreshing, it's like a not-so-tart Berliner. (1,009 characters)

Pours a very hazy lemon color. Massive fluffy white head with great retention.

On the nose is some citrus. Grapefruit is big on the nose. Some funky yeast and barnyard.

Taste is big citrus. Some spicy notes from the yeast. Barnyard funk. Earthy aftertaste. A hint of alcohol in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is nice. Good carbonation. Medium bodied.

A - Pours a cloudy very light orange-yellow with a huge off-white head with great retention.

S - Hoppy floral, corn, nutty, saison yeast, brett-like?

T - Brett, but I am sure there isn't any, strong saison yeast, with a hoppy finish.

D - Tons of carbonation with a lighter body.

O - Saison, hoppy, pilsner. Solid beer that is easy to drink. (372 characters)

Artisan ale from Oklahoma??? Go figure.

Poured into a snifter, this funky ale is a pretty opaque straw color with a thin head and very little lace. The nose is big and bold and all over the place. Some pine, pineapple, lavender, earthy funk, cat pee. And yet, it works. The taste is sort of the same, with strong brett flavoring and funky hop aftertaste. Seriously, the only word I can think of to sum this experience up is funk. And the funk is bringing it strong here. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing.

I really like this beer. Not only because I have newfound respect for Okie brewing, but because this is a bold experiment in funk and I am a better person for having tried it. Cheers to Prairie Artisan Ales. (715 characters)
