Prairie Somewhere

A: Golden orange, very hazy, large white head, decent retention, leaves essentially zero lazing. 4

S: This has an incredible aroma. Tart, citrus, wild bacteria plastic like funk, oaky. Awesome. 4.5

T: Funkier than the aroma implied, and less sour/tart. Floral and farmhouse funk. Herbaceous, some citrus. 4

M/D: Fuller side of medium body, carbonation in the heavier size, drinkability is pretty good. 3.75

O: Overall quite good, I would have preferred that more of the tart characters from the aroma came out in the taste but very enjoyable nonetheless. 4

500 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a cloudy orange/amber, with a medium head and a good amount of foamy cling. Smell is yeast, tart, sour, light malt, a general fruity, berry- like aroma. Got some banana on the first pour. Taste is an acetic sour, tartness, yeast, citrus- lemon stuck out for me, light malt. A little bltterness hits midway. Crisp, well carbonated, good body.

This is pretty good, glad I tried it. It just doesn't stand out in any way, and it doesn't do typical in an above average way. Prairie comes at a high price point, so I won't buy again.

Smell is straight barnyard funk, mixed berries, fresh cut grass, and citrus. Taste is heavy on the citrus, particularly lemon, with a fairly light tartness. Finish is fairly crisp, and makes for a refreshing beer.

Orange-ish amber in color with a white to off white head that dissipates to cap while drinking. Tart lemon notes with a background of some Belgian yeast and really mild pepper flavors. Citrus juice is on the nose and the flavor. Easy to drink and great for some hot weather if you want a little more heft than a session beer.

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a pint glass. Thanks Sean for this bottle.

Pours an amber hazy orange body with a fizzy but frothy white head that reduces slowly to leave little lacing and some retention.

Aroma is faint.. Dill pickles, sours lactic, lime juice, citrus and some spices. On the tongue is tart citrus rind, lemons, sour apple, finish is smooth and crisp with medium high carbonation.

Overall decent.. Pretty crushable for 7% I have to say. Can tell its kettle though.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of limes and lactobacillus yeast are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by sour flavors from the lactobacillus and also has some notes of lime.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like a mixture of a Berliner Weissbier and a saison with some added lime juice. It is rather light, refreshing, and very easy to drink.

Poured from a 500mL bottle. Bottle gushed when opened.

The look is not what I expected, as the appearance is much darker than I anticipate from a Prairie Saison. Smell is loads-o-funk with green apples...now you got my attention. Taste is very tart up front, and almost reminded me of a SARA farmhouse ale. It has an odd and mildly unpleasant finish that I am having a hard time putting an adjective to. The feel is thinner than I'd like, and the massive carbonation that gushed when the bottle was opened is now almost non-existent. Overall it is an up and down experience and I much prefer other Prairie saisons to this.

500ml shared with friends so abridged notes:

The brew appears a clouded hazzy copper color with a white head. The nose seems lemony lactic with yogurt and subdued fruity qualities whch transcribes to the flavor as well. This is a light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. I wouldnt mind sitting down with a bottle of this to myself again to take it all in.

Very high carbonation level. Overflowed the bottle upon opening it. Only got about three ounces out of the bottle. Cloudy straw color, foamy head, smells funky and tastes funky too... From what little I could try

I guess this one falls in line with most of Prairie's offerings in that it is far more expensive than the taste warrants.

The beer is pretty basic; some sour with citrus. Not one I would try again.

Hazy gold to light brown with a quarter inch beige head. Little light will get through this. Aroma of tart Brett is what I detect in the nose. The taste is tast Brett with a sour cherry aftertaste. The mouth is moderately carbonated, crisp, and dry.

L. Pours a deep golden color with a bit of orange. A bit of cloudiness as well. Beautiful looking beer.

S. Slight funk mixed with a bit of vinegar and citrus. Slight spiciness shows up at the end for a tiny bit. Enough to let you know it's a farmhouse.

T. Acidic tartness dominate the flavor and blends well with the citrus flavors that are also present. Bit of funk that fades throughout the entire thing.

M. Medium to light carbonation that fades quickly.

O. This is what I'm looking for in a sour. Tartness dominates and underlying flavors show up throughout. This beer looks and tastes amazing.

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

Pours a murky burnt orange color, thick tight off white head that's mousy in appearance. Head retention is lovely, dissipates after several minutes into a thin layer. Active carbonation steadily travels up the sides of the over sized wine glass.

Light funk and phenol, some malt vinegar, red grape must, leather, wet hay, and subtle citrus peel come through in the aroma.

Acetic tart and candy malt sweetness fight for the palate up front that transitions into a citrus peel and lemon juice tartness in the finish.

Refreshing and light bodied with a moderately high amount of carbonation and tart-drying finish make this a quenching brew. Great summer beer. Only drawback of this beer is that the aroma is much more complex than the flavor. Not to say that the flavor is bad or inadequate, just doesn't live up to the complexity offered in the aroma.

poured 500ml bottle into Duvel tulip.

A - Orange copper with a 2 finger white head. Fades into a thick collar that leaves behind some lacing.

S - A sour lemon and vinegar aroma with minimal funk that I look for in a Saison. The notes are mainly unripe soured citrus and other fruits. I'm not finding much spice.

T - It starts off pretty sour with lemons and vinegar. The lactic has some orange-citrus notes with sour unripe stone fruit. If I pay attention I can find the Saison yeast, but it is buried layers of sour flavors. Funk and spice are non existent.

M - A moderate-high carbonation, with a lighter feel. Really makes you pucker and feel the tightness in the back of your throat.

O - This is more of a AWA than anything resembling a saison. If a bit more spice came through I'd say it resembles the Bruery Sour on the Rye.

Poured into a pint glass. Pale golden color with good carbonation and a two finger head that slowly recedes and left lacing down a third of the glass. Aroma is sour lemon and a punch of orange. Taste is acidic sourness with citrus notes of lime and orange and a floral finish. Light body with medium carbonation and no alcohol or bitter aftertaste.
A nice brew. The smoothness of a farmhouse with the pucker of a sour and enough fruit undertones to keep thing really interesting. Something I'll pick up again.

Definitely very funky and tart with a nice dry and sour finish, but there is a big bright lemon, orange and lime zest character that makes this a perfect summer beer. Nicely done!

Pours a crisp light straw yellow with a fair amount of frothy foam.

Vinegar, oak, citrus, and some light funk.

Orange, lime, acidic, vinegar, and must.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, subtle, refreshing.

Overall, a very drinkable saison with many subtleties, but enough to stay interesting.

One of the best light sours out there . Extremely mild, balanced, subtle and exuberant. Light vinegar, oak and leather. Extremely drinkable. I feel I finished the whole 22oz in less than 15 minutes. Deliciously juicy. I would have this with almost all types of food.

The first ever Prairie keg tapped in Japan, at Craft Cafe Imazato. This was delicious. A lovely orange-lemon citrus flavour, not too sour, and good blend and well-hidden ABV. Very full-tasting thirst-quenching mouthfeel, wonderful for summer.

500 ml bottle, bottled on date 10615 (April 14, 2015). Another new one to me from Prairie, this one a 'Sour farmhouse ale' per the label.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bit darker than expected. A reddish coppery orange body with less than a finger of thin bubbly white head. Thin retention, with no lacing to speak of. Standard appearance.

S - A subtle aroma. Grapey, oaky, vinous, and wine-like. Fruity and slightly berryish. Not a very powerful aroma, but pleasant enough. Grapey and berryish above all else.

T - Taste follows the nose: oaky, leathery, grapey, vinous, white wine like tartness. Very mild sour / tart. Fruity and grapey above all else with a dry wine-like finish.

M - A dry wine-like finish. A minimal amount of sour / tartness is just enough to scratch the surface. Light-bodied & easy-drinking. Dry and white wine ish above all else.

Overall, Another nice one from Prairie, but nothing too different than their typical fare. Typical of this style, and from this brewery, so it doesn't particularly stand out. Easy-drinking for the abv. Enjoyed, but wouldn't have it again.

Prairie Somewhere -----4/5.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, citrus fruit, citrus juice, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus juice, overripe citrus fruit, plastic, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer with really nice sour citrus aromas, but the overripe citrus fruit and plastic combination in the taste makes this one hard to drink much of.

Serving type: bottle.

A- murky golden with a thin off white head. Decent retention, poor lacing.

S- pretty fantastic. Barnyard, apple cider vinegar, citrus, peppery yeasty funkiness. Yes. Just yes.

T- really acidic. Lots of lemon and pepper. Astringent and acidic finish. Really clean. Not a lot of that typical saison funk.

M- light, moderate carbonation. Extremely acidic and refreshing. It leaves me longing for an extra sharp cheddar.

O- where has this been? Seriously, where? I cannot express my full enjoyment of this beer with text... Don't let my "high but not over-the-top" rating fool you, I scored this as a saison. As a beer, and just a beer, this is among my favorites.

two of my favorite breweries getting together on this one. a red tinted sour beer with elements of the flanders red type sour, there is a certain vinegar side to this, but there is also a ton of funk and a much lighter malt side. it seems to be wheaty, although im sure there are some other things happening in there too. medium bodied only, but interestingly flavored, hard to really pin down. there is some fruitiness to the smell, like belgian yeast and maybe apricot or something like that orchard vibe to this one, with some subtle spiciness too. it just doesnt smell like anything i have had before, the bacterial side of this is just really strange. it tastes funny too, medium acidity from the lacto, and very farmy too. it also has a cool tropical thing, not from fruit or hops but from yeast. it reminds me of some other saint somehwhere beers in its yeast profile a bit, and there is a long tangy finish to it. carbonated really well, but the vinegar thing makes it feel a little odd on the palate. this is the very wild side of wild ale, i have not had one like this in the past, and appreciate something other than the generic in these styles these days. seems like too many of them taste too samey for the science. i love this being so bizarre, but i wouldnt buy it again i dont think. i liked it because it was new, but the overall flavors were not my favorite, its just an amazingly high quality specimen, adventurous for sure.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a dark, vibrant, slightly hazed, caramel coloring with a sparse, off-white surface coating of head. Aromas of white grape must, lemon grass, chardonnay, dill, cut grass, subtle sour funk, basil, and a cracker backbone. Flavors are caramel sweet forward, but only for a split instant before the lock-jaw inducing sour kick comes roaring over your taste buds. Wow, this one is a beast. Chardonnay notes, as well as grape, lemon, and apple all blend together for an extremely tart and sour profile. Musty and subtle funk notes highlight. Very smooth and dry bodied, with a tart, refreshing, fruity aftertaste. The finish is extremely tart and dry, leaving your mouth puckering. Good sour!
