4.2/5 rDev +0.7%
A: fully opaque, looks like pineapple juice bubbling the whole time bottom up
S: wine yeast dominates, lemon background
T: upfront sour wine, lemon, tiny buit of funk backing
M: rolling small bubbles, high carbonation, very dry finish
Overall solid beer but sways far toward the wine flavors on this one

Two types of Brett! I cannot differentiate between them! They taste like cherries!
This reminds me of the first time I drank Sofie and I was so, so pleased that a sour could be so lively and yet so drinkable. So very so. But then they mass released Sofie and ruined it by making way less cray-cray. This bad motherfucker, on the other hand, is still terrifying, it’s so goddamn lively.
How do you describe sours? I ain’t yet studied that section of my Pretentiousness Dictionary. Cherries and beligan yeast with a pleasant floral aftertaste. Missing the verdant weediness of my favorite traditional saisons, but that’s more than made up for in the smooth-but-gigantic sour complexities.
Not exactly lifechanging, but maybe that’s what actually makes it lifechanging. I just blow your mind? I should have. Because the real change is incremental, the sort of shit that changes the way you behave day to day. And this kind of imminently drinkable sour may not pack the flavor explosion of Mornin’ Delight or Bomb!, but the fact that it could act as a potential go-to, everyday sort of beer is just mind-boggling.

Thanks to thewimperoo for sharing this one!
Murky orange juice-like appearance, initial frothy foam that settles quickly to a skim. Opaque with tiny champagne streamers around the edges.
Fruity citrus aroma, reminds me of a mimosa.
Bright and tart, quenching and dry in the aftertaste. Spritzy feel. Light grapefruit and unripe grapes. Firm tart feel, puckering and sticks in the teeth. Smooth and medium bodied. Overall a nice sour ale, similar to Standard and Prairie Ale somewhat.

Bottle split 4 ways at tasting.
A: Hazy and yellow. 2 finger thick foamy head. Exactly what a sour farmhouse ale should look like.
S: Notes of lemon, hay, brett and citrus. Pretty good nose on this beer. This is what a summer beer should smell like.
T: Wow, I could drink glass after glass of this on a hot day. This to me might be the most perfect beer for summer that I have ever tasted. In layman's terms, it tastes like a earthy, funky saison lemondade. Tart, refreshing, funky and lemon. Delicious.
M: Good carbonation so it really was clean on the finish and on the tongue.
O: I have yet to have anything other than an outstanding beer from Prairie and these guys are quickly becoming my must-have brewery every time I go to the bottle shop. This was outstanding. Nice work PAA.
