12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/1/2016. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, green apple, apricot, pear, white grape, hay, straw, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk/white pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, green apple, apricot, pear, white grape, hay, straw, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk/white pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity tart/sourness and tangy wheat on the finish; with lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, green apple, apricot, pear, white grape, hay, straw, wheat, cracker, light lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/sourness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tart/sourness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately acidic/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.9%. Overall this is an excellent Berliner weisse! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the balanced acidity; and quite clean finishing. A very enjoyable offering.

Light copper to golden bronze with a hazy complexion. There's no head on top. The aroma is lactobacilius, with notes of green apple,pear, and apricot. I taste pale wheat with light traces of pear, and apricot s. The mouth is lightly acidic, with moderate carbonation.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellowish orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and about a finger of white head that quickly fades away.

Smell: A funky and tart aroma of zesty fruit and acid. Upfront scent of funk and tartness along with lactic acid. Fruit scent of lemon zest, green apple, apricot, white grape, and pear. Malt scent of wheat, grains, straw, and cracker with yeast. A very nice zesty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a funky, tart, and zesty Weisse taste with notes of fruit and acid. Good funky and tart presence of lactic acid upfront. Zesty fruit notes of lemon, green apple, white grapes, pear, and apricot. Crisp malt notes of wheat, straw, grains, and cracker along with yeast. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and puckering with a drying finish.

Overall: A really good take on a Weisse. Good mix of funk and zesty fruit notes.

Poured into a mason jar. Pale straw color with a massive head that left two inches of lacing on the glass. Aroma is tartness, apple, and citrus. Taste is citrus and moderate sourness with a tart apple, dry finish. The taste is smooth and balanced. Enough sour to be distinguished but not so much it overwhelms everything. Light bodied with medium carbonation and no aftertastes. Very drinkable and refreshing.
It's a good thing this is seasonal. It's good but expensive and is so quaffable it's a good summer and fall beer.

Lemon yellow brew. Extremely rustic aroma, milky, slightly tart.

Tart but easy drinking on the palate. Tons of wheat on the finish. Very lively and extremely drinkable.

Looks and smells as it should for style. More on the Gose side then a Berliner but that's minor. What's major is the tartness. Not much Wheat feel at all. Another solid offering from Prairie. I just wish this could be in the Westbrook, Anderson Valley Gose price range, not $11 for a 4 pack

Opened with a slight gush, then you get a hazed straw colored brew with a near non exsistant head.

S: Sourness, grassiness, all kind of fade

T: Nice tartness, a little lemon, a little cherry, & some grassiness up front.. Tarrtness, lemongrass, almost a little cherry lime-aide action going on. Finishes tart & so quenching

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation, you can just feel the puckeryness

Super drinkability, Prairie nailed this one would drink this all Summer if I was made of money
