3.75/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

2014 vintage; drank 11/5/14 @ the Yarchives.

Murky orange hue. HUGE off-white head (careful pouring!); frothy, tree-rung lace.

Dandelion & mild orange citrus nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Dry dandelion, mild clove & mild orange citrus flavors; a dry, champagne-like finish.

A unique, drinkable take on the Saison that's a bit too dry for its own good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent & very hazed amber with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Stays hazed, good head retention & above average lacing

S: Grassy & yeasty, peppery, jammyness once warm

T: Follows the nose, with faint cakeyness up front, along with dryness. Woodyness, jammyness, dryness as this warms, plus pears, appricots & a little Aspirin once warm. Finishes, jammy, dry, & woody

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation , alright balance

Heard a lot about this beer, honestly, its okay at best, drinks easy enough for a 7% ABV Saison

4.05/5  rDev +2%

A – Awesome chunky white foam towers 5 fingers above the pour. Soapy lace and great retention. Light gold body with just a touch of orange.

S – Earthy with celery, grass, black peppercorns, honey, floral nectar, malt, and wheat. A little sweet for a saison, but otherwise pretty nice. I really liked the celery note.

T – A delicious beer, and spot on for a hoppy saison. Dry, herbal, and softy waxy with lemon, dandelion, wheat, cilantro, bright wood, and hay. The hop character is unrefined and herbal; a great play on the rustic farmhouse base.

M – Medium frame with lively carbonation.

O – Nice execution and a fun take on the style.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

pours a huge overlarge 3 finger fluffy head fades at a med pace, lots of soapy lacing, hazy darker honey orange colored.

Nose big saison base, fruity saisin, lemon rind, grainy wheat, toasted grains and grass, lemongrass,etc, into mild farmhouse funk, little Brett funk, big grassy lemon hops, I believe Sorachi Ace like lemony grassy hay like, faint touch of piney like resin citrus notes.

Taste brings more lemony grassy hops to start, fair bitterness, Aussie or Kiwi like fruity lemony citrus hops with grassy earthy undertones, etc. Great farmhouse saison funk and saison yeast, little spices, lemongrass etc, into spicy earthy hops, big chewy like spicy hops etc, very faint tropical notes, as well as some mild Brett funk, etc. More bitter than I expected as the hops get super spicy chewy bitter on the finish, dry, more funky farmhouse saison, little citrus notes, lemongrass, etc, lingering.

Mouth is med bod, nice effervescent carb,

overall typical well done Prairie, hops get a little too spicy and hot later, nice carb and nice hops in general just too bitter on the finish, nice farmhouse, etc.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly hazy golden hue with a thin blanket of head with thin lacing.

S - Aromas of hops, nice possible sorachi ace, faint tropical notes, light funk, some good blanket funk with nice hop notes.

T - Taste is nice funky notes and solid hops, good bitter finish, light tropical notes, faint citrus peel, really nice hop profile with a great light malt backbone. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, light, easy drinking.

O - Overall this was a tasty beer, would like more hops but yeah, good balance between hops and farmhouse.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Dense white head atop a hazy, light reddish-orange brew. Froth melts into a thick quilting.

Has a bretty nose with faint hops, various light fruits (lemon, green apple, orange) and belgian yeast.

The hops and the farmhouse meet right in the middle on this one. The light fruits mingle in the barnyard with a little orange peel at the end.

Medium bodied with a vein of heat at the very back. Creamy for the most part but dries toward the finish.

An excellent marriage of two distinct styles.

Pours a clear amber gold with a foamy white head that lasts for a bit. You can really smell the brett with hints of pine, white grape, apricot and tropical flowers. The brett and piney hops dominate the taste. There are pepper and spice notes as well. Nicely bitter aftertaste. Medium mouth with a fair amount of carbonation. This is my second time to try JFJO Jazz Millions (first was a small sample at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Festival). This seems much better. But as good as it is, it doesn't touch the Gin Barrel Jazz Millions. That was something truly special.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a bright copper with an orange hue. Robust white head of 3 fingers that is pure as snow and sticky as can be.

S- Farmhouse musk of the Brett pairs oh so well with the juicy tropical hop notes. Floral and perfume-like with bright fruit. Papaya?

T- Seems to follow nose. Citrus start, funky middle, spicy dry finish with some tartness popping in and out with each sip. I am really digging this.

M- Pretty clean, dry and perfect carbonation as it seems to dance on the tongue. Slightly heavy for the style, but a minor complaint.

O- My favorite non-stout from Prairie other than Hop. So well done. A must try for the funk-IPA lovers. Another example of how it seems as though Chase is brewing with my palate specifically in mind.

$10 for 500 ml bottle

Hazed golden body, big airy white head that drops some lace on the tulip. Aroma is hoppy but not exactly explosive, as expected. Hops offer pine, cedar, pepper, and orange oil. Pineapple is there too, the Brett or more hops? Not a bitter bomb. Malt gives a bit of toastiness but that's about it. Yeast is pretty clean too, given that this is a "farmhouse" beer. Nice dry and quenching finish. Kind of surprised, this doesn't seem nearly as hoppy as Hop or 'Merica. Still a solid beer, can't really find any flaws. Worth a one time buy for sure, not worth a second at ~$10/16oz bottle, at least not to me.

Jazz Millions aged in gin barrels off tap at the Prairie Artisan Ales Brewery in Tulsa, OK.
Tasted almost like a sour beer. Big frothy ipa head. Great ipa aroma with a little gin and earthy notes. Tasted somewhat limey, earthy, galaxy hops, and slightly malty. Overall it was a delicious beer from the locals.
