This belgian IPA (or farmhouse as stated on the label) is awful.
Pours a completely murky brownish black. Cloudy with sediment throughout.
Smells alright, just bunches of galaxy hops with a little funk poking through.
Taste is not alright. Tastes like an overly bitter Saison-ish brew. The bitterness is not pleasant at all, and this is coming from someone who loves hoppy beer, and the limited experience I have had with galaxy was pleasing (SS#6, iirc).
I took about half a glass down over an hour, and the rest of the glass and bottle went down the drain. Poor show.

Poured from bottle into globe.
Pours dark, tan head, didn't know this was a black saison. Hmmm.
A bit of muddled hops hiding some possible lacto (?) scent. No roast malts, no saison yeasts, odd.
First drink yeilds a touch of roast malt that never show their face again, no funk, no brett, no saison yeast flavors. Just some galaxy hops. Now that I'm drinking I attribute thhe faint lacto scent to the galaxy hops. This is a one note beer.
Mouthfeel is okay. Light bodied, doesn't coat the tongue, ok carbonation.
Overall, I'm bummed about this one. I was expecting a nice brett preesence, and not expecting roasted malts. In the end I got a mediocre black ipa with one note of hops. A rare miss from the guys at prairie.

I like funky beers, beers that taste unique and interesting, that go interesting places.
But this beer has too much funk and not enough awesomeness. To be frank, it tastes too much like a beginner's homebrew gone bad. Too many odd flavors and aromas that don't quite fit. Way too thin of a mouthfeel. The toastyness and ctirus aren't playing well together.
It does look nice in the glass - very generous head that leaves lots of Belgian lace on the glass, but this really isn't enough. It should taste good and this beer frankly does not. I really wanted to like it, since it is from Oklahoma and has such clever bottle art, but taste must reign supreme.
