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.
