500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.1%. Gusher bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour, huge and coarse white head. Pleasant aroma of brettanomyces, farmhouse kitchen, citrus, oak and apple cider vinegar. The flavour is quite dry and moderately sour, notes of brettanomyces and citrus again, fairly distinct bittering hops, a hint of salt.

From the 500 ml. bottle stamped 17472CM2-10129-22017 and I'm not sure what it means. Sampled Feb 27, 2019.

The pour is a slightly milky but very heady looking light amber-yellow.

I'll admit up front that I'm not a fan of Brett beers but the aroma on this one is not as forward as some. Yes, I get that funky oily sensation with a dose of bread, biscuit, fruit, and yeast under it all. I found it appealing.

Light to medium, smooth mouthfeel.

The bread and biscuit sweetness gives way to a less than funky, flavor sensation along with a fruity character hovering back there. Mostly dry yet low tart finish. I'm not a Brett fan but this one is more approachable for me.

Poured from 16.9oz bottle into glass. Stamped dating information on bottle is '17471PT2 15:20 21917'.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Big release of carbonation (but no foam) upon removal of bottle cap. Long lasting billowy white head. Some sheets of lacing from the foam.
Aroma of lemon, funk, and resin.
Swirling tastes of tart lemon, piney (with resin) hops, and barn funk. A little salt (felt on the lips).
Medium to coating mouth feel. Very high carbonation.
Adventuresome mix of tastes, but they lack a real blending together. Where else can you find a glass with resin hops, funk, and tartness. This would probably be quite good at a farm gathering lunch with lots of fresh and savory food that would play off the different taste aspects of the beer.

I just had Brett C. Ale a Farmhouse Ale brewed with cascade and citra hops and sea salt, and conditioned with Brettanomyces Claussen from Prairie Artisan Ales, ABV 8.1%. I bought it at Prairie Artisan Ales Oklahoma City location. I thought it was pretty good.

Look: golden hue with a thick fluffy white head

Aroma: citrus, brett funk, some pine resin

Taste: The flavor is brett funk, a tad salty and peppery, grapefruit, lemon, pear, and a lingering piney bitterness, but not too much.

Feel: light to medium body

Beer pours a hazy deep yellow almost orange color with a large white head. The smell is hops, lemon and salt. The flavor follows the smell to a tee. Extremely carbonated gives it a harsh mouth feel and swallow. Overall meh!

Poured into a snifter. A clear golden color with a large, long lasting white head. Serious Brett on the nose, like diesel fuel, along with some grapefruit and bread. The taste was as expected with huge Brett/funky notes and a nice bitter citrus note to round it out. Very dry on the finish with medium-to-high carbonation.

Look: Crystal clear pale gold with a thick frothy white head. Very active.

Smell: Bright preserved lemon note. Then notes of wet hay, sea salt, bay leaf, citrus zest, fresh sawdust, and cracker malt.

Taste: Preserved lemons with their blend of salty sweet citrus dominate the attack. The attack flashes quickly then fades to a body of plantains, bay leaf, coriander, pine sap, grapefruit pith, water cracker, a hint of lavender, Belgian candied sugar, green apple skin, pear, and a water cracker malt. Finish is has a light salt note with grassy hops rounding the beer out.

Feel: Light- Medium bodied. Prickly and zippy on the palate. Quenching body. Semi-dry finish. Mild acidity. Mild bitterness. No alcohol. Natural pleasing carbonation.

Overall: A fun funky saison. It’s wild and feels not all together cohesive. It has a citrus side that seems at odds with its funky hay side. They never really meld together. With that being said it is still quit tasty with staying intriguing to the palate. A solid pick up but one of Prairies deeper cuts.

A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 17315, meaning it was bottled on 22nd June 2015. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy golden straw colour with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention but left only sparse lacing.

Aroma: Tropical peach, apricot, pineapple, wood, citrusy orange, hints of lemon peel and the right amount of funk.

Taste: Semi-sweet orange, lemon, dried mango, dried apricot, honey, dates and prunes with light oak and funk. Not getting much of the sea salt that was added.

Mouthfeel: Dry-ish, medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall: Nice and enjoyable with it not being overly sweet and having funkiness that is not overpowering. The high carbonation assists it in being refreshing on a hot day.

Pours milky straw, filling the glass with an opalescent sheen. A four inch, off-white, rocky head lingers for a minute before rapidly dissipating to a rocky blanket. Some sticky lace was lefton a Pirat tulip glass while chunks of yeast settle to the bottom.

The aroma is funky with savory spices. A hint of lemon quickly yields to unfamiliar spices.

The flavor is tart and meaty. This odd combination is reminiscent of empinadas or samosas. The finish is long with a focus on spices. Moderate acidity is a constant.

The body is soft and full with a feathery texture. Alcohol is controled, though clearly present. Large bubbles of carbonation form siminar to soda water.

This beer makes me hungry. It is very interesting and worthy of discussion. It would easily pair with meat pies and brings up memories of summer grain harvesting. It would also go well with spaghetti and meat sauce.

Spicy, earthy and drying, the bold and brazen brewers of Prairie embark upon a classic hop and a new wave hop for a blend of old and new, with funk and fauna for a refreshing and woodsy session overall.

Muddy straw in color, the ale crowns with an eggshell froth and carries musty scent of weathered woods, citrus and tropical fruit. Its taste starts with sourdough bread, saltwater taffy and fresh yeastiness.

As the ale crosses the middle palate, the sweetness drifts and the earthy notes build in with a blend of dried oak, cellar funk, and a sense of leathery citrus. Pineapple, apricot and dates blend with a dusty and woody finish of tea, tobacco and nutty oak.

Medium bodied and trending dry, the tannic properties of wood aid in the beer's fruity and dry character. A soft and medium length afterglow trails with a light funk and fauna glow with spice and fruit in faint shadows.
