look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy light yellow-orange with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, acidic, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, grain, fruit, and wood 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 pretty good beer with a nice combination of sour and wood qualities.

so everyone goes crazy for new prairie beers, and most of the time i get it, they make interesting and high quality beers, but some of them, admittedly, are lost on me, its hype preceding excellence, i dont know. elizabeth was one that i liked just fine, but its just another pretty good wild ale. this one is similar, hyped to high heaven because of the brewer, but somewhere in the middle of its peer group. its pale blonde, all wheat from what i can tell, and has a pretty, sudsy, pure white, and lasting head. the nose is simple to me, brett and oak, white wheat malt, ive been down this road. the taste is a bit more distinct, with a lemon rind finish and a bubble bath sort of palate, but it still seems simple to me, which may be to its credit, not its fault, but it seems so similar to others. lacking any real tartness, but it doesnt need it, its a funky wheat beer, and doesnt hide it. the grain is real sturdy and fresh, real stick to your guts for its color, and i like that part the best, but the yeast complex is just not what people make it out to be, its basic, not generic at all, but its nowhere near to the level of what say, jolly pumpkin is doing. very good, not outstanding, but fairly priced.

The brewery who has shown the propensity for churning out world-class Saison after world-class Saison shows no signs of fatigue as Puncheon celebrates all things that can fit within a cask. And by the label, what spills out is quite ubiquitous.

The classic Belgianesque pour delivers a light golden color that resembles canary yellow. Deeply hazy, there's a ton of suspended yeast and wheaty proteins that cloud up the beer. As a billowing cotton white head builds, it recedes slowly to allow strong retention and broken lace at every drink.

Pungent aromas of musty sourness, earthy grain and citrusy spice fills the nose. Where a highly hopped grapefruit scent couples with tangerine, apricot, and lemons a grounded scent of crisp whole wheat, cellar-like must and attic-dried wood provides a mature aroma that's a perfect blend of popular hops and rustic ale profiling.

Its distinct taste is refreshingly acidic at the flavors of lemons, limes, tangerines, mangoes, apricots and white grapes captivate its taste. Backed by a soft wheaty pillow, any sweetness is short lived as it quickly dissolves into the beer's acidity. Its crisp bready start turns spicy with white pepper, wood tannin, and with a hint of sage and cilantro. As the taste concludes, the beer is far from over- a mustier undertone provides waves of earthiness that include sweat, brine, parmesan, shellfish, and saltwater taffee all provided the most earthy and fruity taste that can be imagined.

Mid-light in its weight on the palate, its arid creaminess is attributed to the beer's tightly knit bubbles and its resulting semi-fullness. But as the beer turns to white wine acidity and the carbonation subsides, its feel is light, tart, and powdery-dry. Though oxidated, it seems as though the wood spices outweigh and powdery texture with ease. Finishing dry, tart and feathery, its warmth is understated as its drinkability is highly rewarded.

I absolutely love how this ale bridges the old rustic world of Belgian Sour Ales and newer hop varieties together. Its citrusy juiciness and concluding dryness are both alluring for the palate and refreshing at the same time.

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.

Poured into a rinsed tulip glass, there's a compact head of white foam that fades to a skim fairly quickly. Hazy golden orange color. Not much lace to speak of.

Aroma is faint at first but gets more fruity and slightly funky as it warms. Soft lemon pith, minerals, and wet hay.

Tart and lightly fruity, with some light Brett funk in the dry aftertaste. Lightly citric and vaguely tropical. Effervescent and dry. Overall not too different from other Prairie beers, but it's still pretty good.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Mostly clear semi golden light pilsner color, light head and mild lacing.

Nose super Brett c fruit, little Brett funk, mild tropical fruit, peach like almost, little saison grainy malt and hint spices, little floral like Brett and fruity aromas. Very nice Brett.

Taste brings more Brett, lots of it, little funk, more tropical fruits and general fruity flavours, lemony tartness and little sticky flemmy feel. Light tropical fruit like Brett c, mild saison spices and grainy malts. Little bitterness. Finish is dry, mildly bitter, more Brett funk, little spices and fruit.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb.

Overall quite nice.

"Farmhouse ale fermented in oak barrels" per the label. Reviewed as a farmhouse ale. 750ml brown glass bottle with fun label art and black unbranded hood-and-wire cap over a branded cork acquired at a Fort Collins bottle shop and served into a Guinness stem-goblet in me parents' gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given the brewery. Distributed by the Shelton Bastards. 7% ABV confirmed. 2013 vintage.

Served cold - straight from the fridge - and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a four finger wide head of white colour. Foamy and fluffy. Decent creaminess and thickness. It's a full head. Retention is good - about 6-7+ minutes. Spotty inconsistent lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear albeit hazy yellow-copper of average vibrance. It's clean: no floating yeast particles or sediment is visible.

Overall, it's a decent appearance for a farmhouse ale but isn't unique or special. I'm a bit surprised at how transparent it is. No egregious flaws are noticeable.

Sm: Light farmhouse character: a hint of brettanomyces-induced funkiness, some rustic flaked wheat, and straw/hay. Hop character is entirely floral, complementing the other notes. Clove. Some biscuity yeast. Cereals. Some hints of leather. I won't be so pretentious as to say horse blanket. I'm not picking up on any real oak or barrel notes.

A pleasant aroma of mild strength. No alcohol is detectable. Not as alive an aroma as I'd like.

T: Light funkiness from brettanomyces yeast. Floral hop character. Belgian pale malts. Flaked wheat. Straw/hay. Sadly, I'm not getting any oak. Clean barley. Vague clove. Light bready malts. No doughiness, really. Light lemongrass. Some light white pepper; I want far more. No milky notes, to its detriment. Light biscuity yeast character. A biteen starchy.

Balanced and cohesive, but not gestalt. Decent build. Nowhere near as complex as the best farmhouse ales/saisons. I'm unimpressed. Has decent subtlety, though. Not intricate or nuanced, really. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

No alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and refreshing. Approachable and enjoyable. Suits the flavour profile well, but doesn't feel custom-tailored to it. Nice presence on the palate. Well-carbonated.

Not oily, harsh, gushed, hot, boozy, or astringent.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but far from impressive. The cats at Prairie/Krebs can do better (and have in the past). I wouldn't buy this again or recommend it to friends, but it's a decent little farmhouse ale. I'll easily kill this bottle. Hides its ABV well. Above all else, I'm most disappointed that the oak never manifested. How long was it "aged"? Could've been a month with how bereft of oak the flavour profile is. Overpriced for the quality. Not really worth trying; it's a lot like any other boring farmhouse ale.

Overall, it offers little of interest to the discerning farmhouse ale drinker. It's a very middle-of-the-road farmhouse ale with no unique or special characteristics.

Drinks well from a Guinness goblet.


05/13/14: Truncated notes.

Head is five fingers in a tulip and lasts a good 8-10 minutes.

Body is a very pale light copper and isn't apt for a farmhouse ale; very filtered.

Aroma is lime heavy, with some crackery malts and Belgian pale malts. White pepper is present.

White pepper, lemon rind, Belgian pale malts, crackery malts, and a hint of vague farmhouse yeast.

A bit smacky on the palate. Smooth and wet. Overcarbonated.

It's a drinkable enjoyable farmhouse ale, but it can't hold a candle to the greats in the style. It's a nice offering from Prairie, but is far from their best work. I like it, but it isn't worth the price.

First had: bottle at FoFA13

Hazy yellowish-straw color, floaties in suspension, capped with a fluffy white head that left a bit of clingy lacing on the glass. Musty aroma that I was actually not digging at all. Very diapery, lesser notes of wet hay and cobwebs. Not sure if I just got the bottom of the barrel pour with this one or what, but I almost had to hold my breath to get close. Really bad. Fortunately the taste was not quite as gnarly. Toasted wheat, slightly tart fruits, pear, citrus, grape skins, grass and hay, musty funk, with some of that diaper from the aroma inevitably getting onto the palate, but not in quite an overbearing or offensive way. Light-medium body, crisp, soft. Drinkable for sure, but that smell wasn't convincing me to come back for more. Yeesh.

Pours a semi-hazed peach/straw color with much effervescence & pinky of cream colored head. A modicum of head retention & lacing

S: Sourness, wet grass clippings, funk & dirtyness

T: Follows the nose, pears, peaches , some grapefruit & dryness up front. Mustyness, sourness, plus peaches, a touch of strawberry, dryness oakyness & bit of Chardonnay as this warms, more grapefruit & lemon zest too. Finishes dry, musty with peach, white grapes & grapefruit & general barn yard funkyness

MF: Soft, delicate carbonation & light/medium body. Superb balance

Drinks like a dream, could pound this all day in the Oklahoma heat, but probably not advisable. More of a sour to me than a Saison, but these guys have certainly expanded my acceptance of how a style can be expanded or interpreted. Another winner from Prairie, my favorite so far

I was excited to see this on the shelf in PA, couldnt pass it up despite the salty $15 per 500ml. Poured into a tulip, the brew appears a clear pale golden yellow color with white pillowy topping a finger strong that fades leaving a full wall of lace.

The aroma includes notes of lemon citrus zest almost like lime and a faint clove and pepper spiciness. Some tangy vinous aspect appear as it breathes. This is grassy and herbal with some neutral oak.

The taste has dry wheat and pepper/clove spice. Lemongrass leaning towards notes of coriander faintly before a bit of warming alcohol and dry neutral oakiness breaks things up. Towards the finish, it again shifts the profile slightly towards vinous.

This is a medium bodied brew with modest carbonation. It is crisp, complex and super easy drinking. I would buy this again, I would buy a lot of this if the price was more reasonable. The only thing strange about it is how everything plays together nice and then all of a sudden, the alcohol gets amped out of nowhere.

The beer is very hazy and straw white with a thin white head. The aroma brings funk, yeast, citrus, wheat, grass. Smells quite nice. Lots of citrus flavor. Medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. A touch of grass with mild hop flavor. Really nice. Easy going. Good stuff.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Real nice classic opaque body, deep buttery dark yellow and orb glowing. Nice middle rising carbonation of finer yellow bubbles in the middle as well. Head is creamy white, only about two fingers and settles very quickly to a thin puck.

Solid nose, if a little clean and wet. Mild brett sensations, a little bit of floral notes and some mild pepper. Has a little bit of tart lemon juice behind it also.

On first sip, there's a sense of noticeable carbonation but we and cola like flatness. Some of the fruit aromas translate on the tongue a bit, much of it citrus lemon and the like. Finishes easily and clean but very quick with little aftertaste. There's some wet pepper, kool aid watery fruit, and some brett but not much that's really lasting.

It has the reminder of much of the enjoyable saisons the Prairie makes, but feels a bit subdued and wet. Still a decent beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy with a fleeting white head. Golden body. Lifeless after a while.

Smell - Oaky and a little bit of tartness to the nose. Lemony. Pale malt and a bit of funk.

Taste - Tart right up front. Lemony. A little bit sweet from pale malt. Hint of bitterness and the oak finally shines in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Slick and nicely tart.

Overall - Tasty balance of flavors. Solid all around.

750ml caged and corked bottle purchased from Healthy Spirits in San Francisco. Shared in Sydney with Sam and Rich.

Pours a bright, slightly hazed, but extremely pale yellow colour, only a notch above a witbier. Head is a fine but relatively persistent film of white. Some spotty lacing forms on the glass. Carbonation is extremely fine but a little listless. Looks pretty good overall though.

Nose is bright with fresh crisp vegetative characters and classic saison notes, and undertoned slightly by a very earthy, almost savoury character. There's a straight yeastiness to it which gives it a bit more of a meaty tone than I'd really like, but it's all wrapped up in the same package so perhaps it can be forgiven somewhat. Some oak comes through a little, but so does a slight oxidative character. It's okay all up, but it should be better.

Taste is much cleaner though, and indeed a great deal tarter than I expected. Pronounced, slightly metallic sharpness through the centre of the palate that drags along some classic Bretted characters with it. Bitterness on the back is noticeable: with the Brett it gives it a slightly harsh, somewhat medicinal flavour—something like unripe peachskin and aspirin. It makes it feel a little more like an acquired taste: something perhaps I'll come back to and enjoy more the second time.

Feel is clean and bright, but a touch watery.

Pretty drinkable for all of this though, and there's something that enamours me of the whole more than the individual parts suggest. I think I've enjoyed Prairie's other beers more than this one, but when this is the low point, you're on to a good thing.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear hue with some thin half finger head that left thin blanket.

S - Aromas of loads of brett, peaches, tangerine, fruity goodness.

T - Taste is nicely brett, peaches, tangerine, tasty fruit. Really bright.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, super drinkable.

O - Overall this beer was a nice balanced fruit and brett. Super tasty.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, 2013 printed on cork. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with about a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice and tart, it smells like lemon peel, funk, sour citrus fruits, hay and some bready/grainy malt. It tastes like sour citrus, peppery spice, lemon peel, green apples, oak, grain, hay and some peaches. It's a good tart, fruity tasting brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. I like this, although at $14.99 a bottle I'm not sure if I'd buy it again at that price. With that being said, it's definitely worth a try.

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.

Bottle from Winooski Bevereage Warehouse.

A - Very light golden pour. Lager-esque colour. Hazy with strong carbonation. One finger of white head.Minimal spotty lace and virtually no retention.

S - Tart aroma at first moves into a grainy note. Lemon, wheat, tropical fruit.

T - Obvious tropical and fruity notes, big tartness with lemon candy and some wheatiness. Apple-like flavours. Potentially a note of rye there, but I wouldn't pick up on it unless it was listed in the website description. There's an odd flavour note which might be alcohol, but it seems a bit like spoiled fruits as well.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body but seems alot lighter when you're drinking it, tart and dry to finish.

O/D - A decent saison here. Fairly one dimensional, but punches way below it's belt. Mildly tart and nicely drinkable, but a touch harsh with that spoiled fruit/lemon note. Good nonetheless.

Pour is heavily hazed deep yellow with a tight yellow head. Nose is heavy barnyard Saison yeast, a hint of minerals, light ester behind. Taste is a little bit sweeter, still a fair bit of barnyard Saison yeast, lemon and some candied sugar, faint touch of vanilla. Finish is moderately carbonated, a hint syrupy, a bit sugary.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into an Allagash glass. Vintage 2013.

A: Light fizzy head tops a hazy, straw-colored beer with a tad of effervescence.

S: Funky and lightly sweet.

T: My devoted reviewers (hah) will remember that the funkier the saison, the better I like it. True to form, this is crazy spicy/fruity/funky beer smacks of Brett and Belgian yeast.

M: Smooth, sweetish, with a light pucker.

O: I really liked this beer, but it was not outstanding. I would have liked more carbonation.

Quite a pale straw colour; pretty decently cloudy. Head is thin, cloudy, just a rim of lace. OK I guess.

Smells organic, fairly Bretty and funkadelic. Decent oak aroma, French and buttery, with a touch of lemon and packham pear. Not bad.

Taste is funky, actually fairly bitter. Lots of horse blankety funk, with hints of oak, chartreuse, touch of tobacco, lemon and even honey. Mostly a slightly rubber funk though, and clean on the back enough to be enjoyed.

Bit sharp on the mid, dries up quite a lot on the back. Not too bad.

Funky, organic-tasting beer. Nothing too exciting, but well put together.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours cloudy yellow with a big bubbly white head on top. Bretty funky tart aroma, lemon peels, dry dusty oakiness, funky yeast. Nice. Flavor is dry oaky Brett, yeast funk, some pineapple notes, apricot, a bit of tart citrus peel. Some juiciness and dryness, sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied, medium plus plus carbonation, very crisp finish. These guys really kill it with their funky farmhouse brews. Good stuff!

750ml bottle poured into tulip.

A: Pours a very pale straw yellow with two fingers of active, soft looking, bright white head that fizzed away into a wispy collar. Spotty lace was left down the glass.
S: Tart and earthy notes of lemon zest, musty oak, damp basement, and a rather unpleasant aroma of sulfury rotten eggs.
T: Not as tart as the nose suggested but there is still a clean lactic bit alongside some lemon juice, green apple and damp earthy must. The finish is sweet thin with a citrus pith bitterness to it, and the aftertaste has notes of sulfur and drying oak barrel.
M: Lower carbonation and a heavier mouthfeel than expected. The body is thicker and fuller than I would have liked, and the oak barrel doesn’t add nearly enough dryness to the mouthfeel as it should for how mild the carbonation is.
O: Decent flavors but the sulfur throws me off a bit. Also beer doesn’t sit that great in my mouth. Not the best out there.

The beer pours a cloudy, monochromatic caramel color with a wickedly fluffy white head that grabs desperately for the glass throughout drinking. The nose is ripe and citrusy, with more lemon than oranges, and notes of white grape, but this is definitely not syrupy sweet as it has a certain mouthwatering tartness in the nose that I've rarely experienced. The taste is equally bright and citrusy with heavy handed hay and grains, a honey-like sweetness, zesty citrus, and yeast in the finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and well attenuated, effervescent, promoting grain and citrus in the middle, but has a semi-dry, lingering yeastiness that makes for a pleasant aftertaste. This beer is seriously classy as hell and absolutely meets my expectations for the style.
