Brought back from San Antonio business trip. Poured into a tulip.

As the label indicates, this is a sour farmhouse, and I agree. Its good, but it certainly pushes the style envelope too far and makes it difficult to rate to the style in which is categorized. Not the prettiest of beers. Somewhat reminiscent of a wheat beer. Smells like a saison but tastes like a sour. In my opinion a unique aspect of this beer is the combination of tartness with high carbonation, which, at least at first, can make for a beer that BITES. A beer that upon first taste I thought might be a drain pout, but no, it grew on me. 4

A – Pours a hazy pale orange with a white fluffy two-finger head, good carbonation, head dissipates quickly to a constant thin layer, some minimal lacing. 3.75

S – Funk, a bit of spiciness, very little citrus/fruitiness. 4

T – This beer is tart beginning to end. Some maltiness that balances out the tartness. A faint saison sweet orange citrusiness behind the sour. Certainly higher sour/tartness than would be in a normal “to style” saison. 4.25

MF – Medium bodied, dry finish, sharp. No lasting aftertaste. Some creaminess as well. 4

On tap at When Pigs Fly. In a snifter the beer was gold in color with a small white head.

Aroma was floral and earthy, with some citrus.

A blast of tartness. Orange peel. Earthy.

Pleasant tart mouthfeel. Makes me want more.

I'm liking this brewery.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Flat golden body. The thinnest collar.

Smell - Bretty and fruity. Tropical fruit. Earthy.

Taste - Brett is strong, as is the tropical fruit. The brett wins the battle, though. Bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Flat. Medium body and a little tang.

Overall - Always weird from St. Somewhere. Could use some carbonation.

Pours an effervescent gold with a pinky of pearl colored head. This murks up a touch as the bottle hits the half-way point . Not much head retention ore lacing

S: Pear skins, a bit of funk & pineapple

T: Pineapple, a touch of white grape,white pepper & coriander up front, with just a touch of puckery sourness. More tropical fruit as this warms, pineapple with some acidic twang leading the way, plus a touch of lime peel & serious tartness. Finishes with an engaging tartness, a touch of golden delicious apple, pineapple & even some Chardonnay dryness

MF: Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a bracing tartness/acidity that keeps you wanting more

Super drinkability, I really enjoyed this, the tartness & pineapple kept me wanting more. Another winner from Prairie
