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.
