Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with cat litter notes is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by some rustic malt notes with funky ester and some cat’s litter notes that are quite powerful. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer with quite a bit of complexity while retaining super great drinkability.

Prairie's Newest Farmhouse Ale....and it doesn't disappoint folks!

Into a Prairie Teku, Pour is straw and lightly cloudy. Carbonation is full and wonderful. White tightly packed coarse bubbles cling to the glass and each other. The smell is a wonderful bouquet of spice, fruit and earth. There is a very light Brett funk at the 1st sniff, Mango, pineapple, wheat grass and red earth follow through. The taste is of ripe peaches and lemon citrus. Slightly sour, but is completely balanced by the malt sweetness and yeast dryness. The finish is slightly dry, but welcome. The drinkability is extremely high and the 7% ABV creeps up on you. Some cloudy dregs were noticed in the last glass, but it's expected with a bottle conditioned Farmhouse Ale.

This is in my top 3 Prairie Beers. I believe this to be the finest Saison style they have done to date, and it is only going to get better. It's almost the best of both worlds..like a combination of Ale and Hop. Extremely delicious. Another home-run from the Healey Bros at Prairie! Seek this one out!! Cheers!
