I don't know if this is racially problematic or not, but I do know that's the kind of thing I don't tend to care about.

Pours dark. Not even close to opaque. (Like, ten people have said this is opaque. Words have meanings, guys. "Opaque" means you can't see through it, and you can see through this).

Smells like a blend between the front end of a bretty saison and the back end of a black IPA. Sour chocolate. It's... it's okay. I think that's how they intended it to come out.

Tastes as it smells, a well-brewed combination of two flavors that don't normally go together. Prairie's got some damn fine brewers, but it takes a special kind of magic to get disparate nodes to line up with another, and this doesn't work. It's still okay, but the char and sour never fully jibe.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16 oz bottle. Don't see a date on the bottle. This is probably the first black farmhouse ale I've tried, and certainly the first that I have reviewed.

A: Pours an ample, light brown head with lots of small-lacing bubbles. The head dissipates very, very slowly. The beer is extremely dark, and blocks all, or almost all, of the light from getting through.

S: Brett! With this first sniff, I realize that "funky" is an apt name. Certainly, citrus from the Galaxy hops and chocolate as well.

T: A combination of citrus-y hops, pepper, chocolate, along with the tangy acid of the brett. Alcohol is somewhat disguised.

M: Finish combines hop bitterness and dry cocoa powder. Creamier than what you would expect for a saison, but it's not a bad thing here.

O: A unique beer and definitely worth trying. Glad I picked one up.
