Nice to see another craft brewery coming out of Oklahoma. Starting things off with Funky Galaxy from Prairie Artisan Ales. Funky Galaxy is a black saison hopped heavily with galaxy hops. Poured into a Belgian glass. Funky Galaxy pours an inky dark brown. Things are topped off by a healthy 3 fingers of khaki head. Head settles to a ring, leaving some lace in its wake.

The aroma packs punch of complexities. Slightly overripe fruit notes hit first. Tropical fruit stands strong. Mangoes, oranges, and more citrus stand out. Some resiny pine hits beneath the fruit. A mild brett funkiness present as well. Bubblegum and spice also pops. Charred dark malt notes round out the aroma.

Taste follows the nose nicely. Funky Galaxy is a very hop forward saison. More ripe fruit hits the palate. Dry mangoes, and grapefruits hit first. Some orange melds with the grapefruit. Light pine notes round out the hops. Some mild bretty barnyard funk pops underneath the the fruit. Yeasty bubblegum notes melds with an appropriate saison pepperiness. Some dark malt and char flow beneath the hops and yeast. The finish is dry with lingering herbal hop notes.

Funky Galaxy is light bodied with an effervescent carbonation.

Always glad to see a new brewery. Prairie seems to understand how to brew farmhouse ales. Funky Galaxy hits all the right notes for a saison. The galaxy hops add a wonderful complexity of tropical and citrus fruit. The alcohol is kept well in check, only showing towards the end as things warm up. All in all this a nice brew.

Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

A prominent, loud pop upon removing the cork. Not a gusher.

Dark brown throughout with some visible sediment. The color is bordering on black. Plenty of visible carbonation. Quickly forming, tightly-bubbled head. Somewhat persistent.

Not a particularly expressive aroma, but what's here is nice and appropriate given the style. Earth, some char, dark malts, and a hint of a black licorice character combine nicely. More and more of a straw-like and earthy funk emerge as the beer warms.

The flavor follow a similar journey as the aroma, as more and more of the earth/dry, wet hay/funk flavors comes out as the beer warms. Against that is an interesting combination of black, toasted malts, cereal, a touch of char, and some licorice. Very drinkable.

Medium to near full in body for the style. High carbonation.

Tasty, though nothing unexpected or particularly interesting about it. A tasty black saison though, without a doubt.
