4.05/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a bright orange gold. Quite cloudy. Opaque. I assume there's some decent sediment in the bottle. Uneven but good-sized head. Lots of bubbles of all sizes. Dissipates relatively quickly. Zero bubbles left after a few minutes.

Aroma is heavy on lemon. There also seems to be a bit of yogurt to that sour note. Oak provides some rustic character. It's musty and earthy. There's a bit of lightly cheesy funk. There's also a pineapple-melon tropical fruit note that I'm not a huge fan of. It gets increasingly strong relative to the other flavors in the beer as the glass sits and warms. As I keep going back, I'm liking the tropical fruit more, but it doesn't play well with the funk.

The flavor starts with some lemon-tropical fruit sweetness before the tart kicks in. That said, it never gets terribly tart, maybe medium tart. The finish picks up a bit more pucker and some oak tannin dryness. More melon. A bit too much of that fruit-pale malt sweetness, at least for now. Mild yogurt note. Some mineral character gives it a classic iron-ish saison feel.

Feel is effervescent at first. Medium pucker. Some tannic feel. There's definitely some body to the beer.

This review feels a bit disjointed, but the beer changes quite a bit as the beer comes to room temp. I think this beer needs some time to mature and pick up more complexity in the taste. I like the tropical fruit sweetness, and it gives the beer an interesting side, but it still feels a bit odd.

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.

look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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
