Thanks Pat.

The beer is hazy and straw yellow with a thick white head. The nose brings floral hops, grain, hay, grass. Dank hops and citrus with some nice floral character. Both the nose and flavor are quite nice. Delicious with an elegant balance of fresh hops and farmhouse funk. My kinda beer.

750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a couple inch frothy off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like grainy/bready malt, lemon peel, hay, apples and grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some peppery spice, pears and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's well carbonated, creamy and easy to drink. I liked this brew a lot, I wouldn't mind picking up another bottle the next time I come across it. $13.99 a bottle.

Pour is heavily hazed golden amber with a fluffy bubbly off white head. Nose is fantastic, loads of citrus, assumedly Brett, nice peppery balance and a softer Saison yeast to it. Taste is also darn good. Tons of citrus up front with a fair bit more Saison farmhouse funk to it. Gentle pepper to balance. Moderately dry finish, well carbonated and lighter body. Finish is a hint light, maybe due to strong carbonation, still awesome.

Hazy gold with a healthy collar of creamy white foam. The spelt gives a rustic cereal character that is the backbone for the beer - almost a tanginess reminiscent of sourdough. Spicy hop flavor pokes through the graininess. Faint fruitiness adds interest and lightens up the rough grainy flavors. Apple, pear, and apricot stand out. All around a nice beer and a great way to get a feel for spelt. Pretty well done.

Spelt Saison colloboration between Prairie Artisan Ales & Choc

Opens with subtle pop, pours a slightly hazed amber with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Some lacing & head retention, stays hazy

S: Yeasty, porridge & white pepper, peaches late to the party

T: Porridge, mangoes, white pepper & some lemon zest up front & grapefruit, plus pears. Green apple peels as this warms, some more porridge, a touch of golden delicious apples, more dryness & grapefruit & even some peach. Finishes with some over-ripe pear, grapefruit, a bit of peppery hops, plus a touch of passion fruit

MF Medium body with slight carbonation. Carbonation picks up as this warms

I'm not a huge fan of Spelt in beers usually. This really works for me, this beer doesn't have crazy funkyness, but is just put together well & super drinkable
