Hazy yellow golden colored. A half inch thick off white head with vibrant carbonation bubbles within the beer. Brussels lacing. Aromas of pineapple, mango and a bit of funk waft out of my glass. The taste of peppery saison yeast is on the front of the palate. It is followed quickly by a gentle touch of the earthy rye. The rye lingers in the aftertaste along with the pineapple and mango notes. The carbonation on this beer is moderate and the mouth is pretty crisp and dry.

A-Puncheon pours a cloudy, nearly opaque honey color. The head surprisingly is fairly tame, despite a strong tilt.

S-Aroma is pretty exceptional. Funky and tart. Almost Gueuze-like. Musty and lemony. Not picking up much of the oak but that's about the only negative.

T-Not as tart or sour as the nose would lead you to believe; it has a bit of both but the nose is more intense in this aspect. Fruitier and hoppier than the aroma. Lemons and unripe pears. Straw and hay. Bretty fruit flavor. Just a lick of oak on the finish. Dry finish as well.

M-Medium carbonation, medium body. Relatively refreshing. Alcohol is somewhat evident.

O-I enjoyed the nose more than the flavor and I was not in love with the big price tag. Otherwise, it was very solid. Hoping to try more Prairie offerings in the future.
