750ml bottle poured into a stemless wine glass.
The beer pours a hazy straw color, hues of gold, copper and orange with a finger or so of fizzy white head that dissipates immediately leaving no trace film or lace behind. The aroma is light, yeasty fruit, light berry, slightly acetic, touches of lemony funk, straw and grain. The flavors are nice, more grain and farmhouse character, light berry and lemongrass, nice sour qualities that finishes with a light funky pale malt flavor. The body is moderately carbonated, coats the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a crispy, fizzy bite, but lacks a traditional farmhouse texture.
Verdict: An interesting take on a farmhouse or saison style, but while ambitious, this errs on the side of caution it seems. The flavors and aromas are a bit tame, and while good, don't really pop out or show any pizzazz. Definitely worth trying for anyone who likes a light sour or a farmhouse.

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.

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
