16oz, no date
Riedel tulip

A: Pours a really deep brown almost black in the glass. Initially had about a finger of tight bubbled light tan head. Sticky lacing sheets.

S: Very interesting nose. Chalk. Cocoa. Barnyard dryness.

T: Definitely a hoppy beer. Nice blast of hop bitterness initially. Big grapefruit and citrus blending with pine. Then some of that cocoa hits the palate. Bakers chocolate. Dusting. Then that funky Brett is there. Dry and almost tannic. Finish has lingering farmhouse character and hop bitterness. Dry.

M: Lighter side of medium.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Creamy black and opaque with a khaki head. Not much light goes through.

S: Roasty malt, a bit of hops, and a fruity note.

T: I love this! It's definitely a farmhouse, but with a nice roasty character. Roasted chestnuts, hops, lemon grass, a very nice funk tone, dark fruits, honey, and grain. Awesome taste.

M: Medium and a cool touch of carbonation, lightening it up.

O: I was not sure about this one. But I'm glad that I got it. It's a great beer! I also think it deserves a better score :-(

16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours dark brown/black with a couple inch frothy tan head that stayed around for a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Interesting aroma, the brew smells like roasted malt, tropical fruit, brett, blackberries, and a bit of citrus. It's nice fruity and roasty aroma. The taste is interesting too, it tastes like roasted malt, peppery spice, bittersweet chocolate, citrus zest, tropical fruit, pine, berries and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit oily and is well carbonated. This is a beer that I liked more and more the longer I drank it. I guess I'll have to try more black farmhouse ale/saisons! I'd like to get another bottle at some point, it's definitely worth a try. $9.99 a bottle.

Pours out to a huge rocky head that gushes out of the tulip glass. Head is 3/4 inch and permanent as hell. Deep dark stoutlike color. Aroma was downright funky. I am one of those that detects phenolics at low levels and the phenolics were raging in this one. Smelled more like vinyl than bubblegum and clove. Also a very fruity hop nose as well. Flavor is wild and complex, lots of tropical fruit, spice, bubblegum and roasted malts and a strong bitter foundation. Mouthfeel was surprising on the light side with moderate carbonation. Overall, a funky brew for funky times.

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

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. No bottling or dating from what I can see.

Oh a dark saison huh? She is truly DARK.. Big black walnut dark with a real mocha and even more unexpected dark head. Creamy cocoa brown, and whipped up milk chocolate top, this looks like more of an imperial stout than anything and a real aggressive one at that. Very nice.

Real nice nose. Dark fruits and some mild farmhouse yeast soft funk. Compliments some nice soft roasting qualities and a nice hop matching tropical juice feel. Sort of almost American Black IPA sensing but with brett qualities. No clashing here, really balanced too, very enjoyable.

Real neat palate. Very light bodied for such big abv in saison territory, but there's a great creamy roast quality to this. Crisp carbonation that cuts through the cream on top of it, with roasting malts and coffee. Dry brett finish, but not stinging too hard but some nice tonic water minerality flavor.

Crisp and Dry. Funk and Roast. Sweet and Cream. Wonderful balance and a unique beer. Easily my favorite black saison I have had to date.

Is that…a hotdog suspended between two fingers while floating in space? Yep, it sure is. Well there you go, Prairie, you have my attention. Cheers.

A: Pouring this into a Duvel tulip was definitely the right choice: on the pour, a bubbly column of foam fires up the sides of the glass, climbing and climbing until the beer is half head and half body. Call it Duvel dark, dark brown bubbles over a body of pitch black. Lacing appears as a sheet of thick foam, a testament to the dense, long-lasting head.

S: Ah, there’s that dirty, dirty Prairie yeast I love so much, that bright, acidic, downright funky aroma punctuated by notes of lemon, underripe peach, and guava. It’s a fruity, catty combination of esters, very much a scent unique to Prairie. It’s tough to get beneath that yeast character, and as much as enjoy it, the style begs for more scrutiny. Sure enough, as it warms, darker scents of milk chocolate and dark fruit peek out.

T: This is, surprisingly, a black ale through-and-through, though it certainly has a characteristic snap of funk. Riding a wave of chalky, bittersweet cocoa, it starts with nothing more than a standard dark ale foundation – creamy chocolate, whipped cream, a little caramel – but it’s no more than a second before the yeast tastes come tumbling in. Brine and green olives, a Prairie yeast staple, pick at the body until what you’re tasting is no less than a fudgy olive – and I have to say, that blend of salty and sweet is quite addictive. Hops are in play, too, mixing some brisk citrus to the palate: lots of lemon rind, but there’s some mandarin orange and white grape there, too. Finishes with a sweet, gooey brownie batter taste under a bright dryness.

M: Frothy and smooth, like a small beer with a lightly drying, slightly watery palate. Nothing is out of place here, though; this is an appropriate texture, a mild, velvety beer.

O: Prairie’s yeast rocks! And, gladly, there’s more to the story than just that, as evidenced by the chocolaty blackness this ale exudes. What we end up with is a wonderful combination of tastes – and, without a doubt, another reason to buy Prairie beer!

Bought in San Antonio. Brought home in my luggage. No bottle on date. Poured into a chalice.

A super unique brew in my book. One of a kind! Just the aroma is almost enough for me. Almost a black IPA but with the funk. 5.0

A – Pours a black/reddish tinged opaque with a two-finger mousey tan head. Almost classic Belgian lacing. 5.0

S – Slightly sweet, spice, funk, some pear, yeast (fruity, spicy). 5.0

T – Funk & spice. Some bitterness in the finish. 4.75

MF – A bit velvety/creamy, medium bodied, dry lasting finish, a bit acred (-), some fizz. 4.25

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Aroma: Tangerines, pineapple, and mango with sweet roast malt in the back.

Appearance: black with dark brown highlights. Dark tan head that lingers.

Taste: Not as citrus and tropical fruit forward as it smells. More piney and dank hop flavor. Roast malt contributes interesting tannic finish. Fruity esters are apparent probably yeast derived.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Very slightly astringent in the finish.

Overall: really interesting beer. Black IPA is nice with galaxy. I am not sure if I like it with the yeast esters but I am glad I tasted it.

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

Figured I should give this one a review because I thought it was awesome (many ratings before me would indicate otherwise).

What I really enjoyed about this beer was that it actually contained what it said on the label. When combining flavors and "styles" often times, distinct elements from each style are not prevalent. This was not the case.

I read the label and expected a hybrid of a black IPA and a saison. That's exactly what it was. Full bodied and creamy, dark as a stout with a nice fluffy head, very saison like.

Aroma was that of fruity and peppery esters, floral hops, and chocolate malts.
Taste; a wonderful melding of the flavors I expected, hiding the alcohol quite well. I had no idea it was 8% abv til I came here to rate it (usually I look for/notice these things on the label, perhaps OK doesn't require it).

Bottom line, if you like saisons and/or hoppy dark ales and think the two combined would be interesting, then you will love this beer. Having had a few beers with the same concept (Mikkeller/Stillwater colab and GreenFlash/St. Feuillen colab) I can say that the Praire Ales rendition is by far the best.

Pours black, looks good

Smell is super nice, funktastic with some hops - some of my friends smelled urine, but...that's just what we call "strange funk"

Taste is nice but not incredible, sour, malts and plenty of hops.

Overall pretty good and fun/interesting brew from an awesome brewery - tons of hops and sour funk, nice one!

Poured into a pint glass. The 1-inch, tan head didn't go anywhere. It just sat there, daring me to drink it. Very dark brown, not quite black. Sour smelling, with lots of funky yeast and hops, some ammonia. This one's weird, with lots of flavors, aromas going on, some of which are, for me, unpleasant. The initial taste is sour, fermented grain, lots of hops; then smoke, more hops, then ammonia, sweet sour fruit. It's a beautiful looking bear, with the head down to 1/2 an inch, and the alcohol is perfectly masked. The beer tasted like a very good dark IPA, clean, some nice lacing I'm very glad I tried this, though not sure I'd search it out again.

Pours a very dark brown in color, with a massive, expanding tan head. Aromas of whisky, and a bit of pear as well. Taste begins with some sweet caramel up front, then a bit of phenolics, followed by some citrus, and a piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is very good. Overall a different, but excellent tasting beer.

Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, tangerine, peach, passion fruit, cocoa, roasted malt, hay, straw, clove, pepper, musty funk, grass, floral, herbal, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, passion fruit, peach, cocoa, roasted malt, light char, clove, pepper, straw, grass, herbal, floral, light funk, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pepper/clove yeast spice and pine hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, passion fruit, peach, cocoa, roasted malt, light char, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, light pine, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, roasted malt, and funky/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent black Saison! All around great balance and complexity of hop, roasted malt, and spicy/funky yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a deep black with a creamy head reminiscent of a root beer float. Smells unlike any other beer I've had. Smokey, hoppy, grainy, malty spice, with fruit and licorice thrown in. Sounds crazy, but the smell reminds me of an old pharmacy from my childhood. Coffee, citrus and hops are heavy, with a woody quality. Nice bitterness. Medium mouth. This wouldn't be my everyday beer, but it is excellently unique.

A- Great looking beer with a small head and nice retention on it throughout the tasting.

S- This has a funky smell, can smell the galaxy hops. Kind of like a sour-ish black IPA. Idk it was my first time with this style.

T- Its ok tasting, not really sure what to think of it. It has some nice flavors, but seems like theres too much going on. Alcohol is hidden in this well.

M- It does have a nice taste, but it is really thin. I didnt hate it. Each sip had me coming back for another, that lingering taste it left really got me.

I didn't hate it, just really wasn't sure what to expect. Very interesting to say the least. But, I would drink it again.

Poured from bottle at churchkey in DC into tulip. Deep black with a finger of tan head and lacing. Huuuge brett aromas on this with a bit of hop aroma. Taste is just super bretty...funky with a big bitter dose of fruity hop and roasted black malt. Its all so intense that the flavors work really well together. Its very funky very hoppy and pretty roasty.
Nice a dry and a bit bitter finish. Really awesome as always...deff get one if you like over the top brett.

Had this on 2013-12-26 in Columbia, PA

A - Moderately opaque darker brown with a massive 3-finger tan head that fades to 1-finger pretty quickly but leaves significant lacing.

S - Spicy hops, mint, grass, cherry blossoms, barnyard. Fresh smelling; like a spring day in a field by the barn.

T - Dark roasted malt that is slightly charred, semi-sweet chocolate, grassy, funk from the brett strains, overly-ripe black cherries, mint, citrus tartness, fresh hop buds and bitterness from the Galaxy hops that is (to me) a bit much for a saison and which somewhat conflicts with the roasty/char flavor. Never had a black saison before. I appreciate the new flavor combinations but whether it is a black IPA or black saison, it's really tough to balance lots of hop flavor/bitterness with char.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Watery. I would have preferred a thicker feel.

O - Kudos to Prairie for coming up with a beer that doesn't smell or taste like anything I've had before. It won't be a staple at my house but I'm intrigued to try more brews from Prairie.

A - Pours coffee black with a two finger khaki head with great retention/lacing.

S - Earth, hay and citrus notes.

T - Mild citrus tartness starts off and it develops into a malty backbone with cocoa powder.

M - Light bodied and high carbonation. It has a dry finish to it.

O - This would probably work good if it wasn't a black saison. I just don't think the galaxy hops mix well with it.

Bottle from Craftshack
Pours a fairly dark brown with a huge creamy tan head that persists forever. Holy hopness batman, that is one hopified saison aroma. Earthy floral and spicy hop nose co existing with a slightly funky, sour overly ripe grapefruit aroma. The flavor is light sweet honey malt beneath layers of light funk and tart sour fruits. Lingering earthy hop flavor, light chocolate, and aspirin in the finish. Medium body with moderate to high level of carbonation and a tart slick mouthfeel. Odd mesh of flavors that did gradually wear on me. Nice to try, but I probably wouldn't seek out again.

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.

Shared with JLindros, reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark nearly black hue with a massive three finger mocha head that leaves light lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of saison and barnyard funk with nice horse blanket notes. Solid tropical galaxy hop aromas along with some light cocoa. Rather pleasant.

T - Taste is quite similar to the nose. Lots of funky, assertive horse blanket, chocolate, nice galaxy notes of tropical hops. Lots of pineapple, a slight mineral note along with some faint alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit too creamy for my liking of a saison. Could stand to be a bit more crisp.

O - Overall, this was a fun beer with alot going on with it. Tasty, but really would like a more traditional mouthfeel.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a tulip. No freshness/bottle date. Billed as a galaxy hopped black farmhouse ale.

Mostly opaque black with brown tinges. Thick, luscious, foamy 2" head. Coffee colored with a whipped egg white consistency. Great retention. Frickin beautiful.

Smells like a citrus farm. Grapefruit and orange, hay, earthiness, a little barnyard funk. A little medicinal note. Smells juicy and nice.

The taste leads with grapefruit zest, dried hay, bitter orange juice, moist earth, just a little touch of chocolate. Moderately bitter, dry, a little funk. Long finish of grapefruit zest and hay, with a little roasted/charred taste. Doesn't taste like 8% for sure.

Light bodied and smooth, leaves kind of an oily residue. It's not unpleasant though. I wouldn't mind if it had a bit more carbonation.

This beer is unique and tasty, complex but drinkable and refreshing. Has some classic funky saison flavor with nice American hop presence. Delicious.

Found a bottle of this beer in Boulder, Colorado. After getting over the sadness I felt at Prairie Artisan appearing in CO but not New Mexico, I grabbed a bottle to take home.

I poured the beer into a Samuel Smith's pint glass. The liquid poured out black as night, thin and viscous and produced an enormous head that quickly filled the entire bottle. The beer thus seemed almost over-carbonated. Still the head was beautiful, frothy, foamy, pillow-like and off-colored cream. I would have loved the appearance much more if the head wasn't overwhelming, so that explains the low rating in this category. There is considerable lacing all about the glass and this is a plus.

The smell is very appealing; first hitting my nose with citrusy tartness like a grapefruit, then giving off some hop resin. Considering the dark profile of the beer, this was not what I was expecting aroma-wise and adds some real intrigue.

The taste is immediately tart and citrusy, like biting into an orange, but it finishes dry and chocolatey. At the finish, a malty backbone does a good job of balancing out the tart and bitterness. Also, some booziness does pop up.

The beer is really light and refreshing and despite the dark appearance, could be my drink on a hot summer day. The tartness is tasteful and does not overshadow the dark mals and chocolatey notes, which emerge perfectly to give a balanced finish that is dry but not vicious.

For a first taste of Oklahoma beers, this is a great example. A unique beer that is distinguishable from the crowd and is pleasing and that can hit the spot when one is thirsty.

Jet black body with a thick, creamy, light tan head. Citrus and pine hop notes; slightly phenolic. Light flavor of dark malts, a twinge of cocoa; bitter and astringent finish. Medium-light body.

A beer I'd really like to enjoy but the phenolic and bitter nature in the taste overwhelms all the other good parts. Perhaps this is all due to this being a farmhouse ale and some brettanomyces yeast action in the beer. Drinkable, but looks better than it tastes.

Thanksgiving beer.

This beer pours a medium bodied pitch black in color, almost like a porter, with a one finger creamy mocha colored head. The nose features a good amount of funky brett with dark malt and light leather. The flavors are very dry and funky. It initially drinks like an Irish stout before dive bombing into the yeast. The brett is almost overpowering. It almost has some plastic to it as well. There is some galaxy hop character but it struggles to fight through the dark malt and brett. It drinks medium in body and very dry. Overall I think this would've been better suited as a blonde, especially since all of their lighter wilds have been home runs. The roasty dark malt just took too much away from the most intriguing parts of this beer.
