Nice sour flavor, balanced with cherry and good mouth feel. Surprised to enjoy a beer from Oklahoma this much.

pours a slightly hazy deep red body with light pink frothy foam head that has moderate retention and leaves slathers of lacing behind as it settles to a murky cap with big defined halo.

aroma is faint tart cherry.

taste is smoothed out tart cherry with a squeeze of lemon and a yeasty kick that comes across with a low spice to it, almost like white pepper.

feel is medium-high carbonation and medium-light bodied that runs ultra smooth and finishes lightly dry with a low tart cherry aftertaste that intensifies slowly as it sits on the palate.

overall:
great looking brew that has an ultra-comfy feel to it while still entertaining a tartness that gives it a nice complexity that is super easy to sit on and enjoy. shame it only comes in a 4 pack

Not sure how sours hold up to age, so benefit of the doubt here that at 6mos it has deteriorated. Pours a near-clear dark magenta with a few fizzy bubbles on top. Aroma is all tart berry, as is the flavor. Not much in the way of malt backbone, which is what I really look for in a good sour, so pretty one-dimensional.

Pours a hazy magenta color with a foamy pinkish head which lingers. Berries including strawberry and raspberry on the nose along with some lemon, cherry and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a tartness which is followed by a balanced berry flavor.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, reddish color with a pink head of bubbly foam. It left some thin rings of lace on the glass. It smelled of cherry, lemon, berries and sweet caramel. Nice tart cherry taste with lemon and other fruits. Some caramel sweetness, too.

Canned 11/27/20

The cool can grabbed my attention at the store before I even realized it was Prairie, which I’ve had great experiences with before. I’m always a fan of cherry sours, but this one doesn’t seem very well received on here, just average

Pours a cloudy dark ruby with just a finger of white head that quickly fades to a thin ring and leaves no lacing at all

The nose brings notes of lightly tart cherry, sweet vanilla, lime, lacto funk, and crisp bready malt

The taste starts off with notes of sweet black cherry, bright lemon acidity and soft malt. The swallow dials up the tartness a bit, brings notes of strawberry, cherry, vanilla, and more intense lemon

A light body pairs with moderate carbonation for a tart and refreshing beer. Finishes dry with a nice acidity

This was good, but nothing special. Certainly refreshing, but not overly complex or interesting

Canned 6/17/20 and poured into a teku. Pours an almost Kool Aid colored red. Looked really great when poured in the sun, but all in all, appearance is fairly meh. Smells vaguely of cherries and a little bit of odd funk. Taste is solid, but has an odd metallic aftertaste that I can't fully place. Cherries are present, but not overwhelming. Solid summer beer.

Interesting tart little ditty. Fruity crisp and sour. Good with a nice doob at 2am on the 19th floor in the gubner's suite at the Winstar. Highly recommend for just such occasions.

12oz can into a snifter. Clear coppery pour, minimal head and lacing. Unimpressive nose of faint cherries and fruity/jammyness, with very light impressions of tartness and funk. The palate is just as muted, nothing off or bad-tasting, just very mild for a fruit sour. Faint cherry and lemon, sometimes slightly sweet, light kiss of tartness. Definitely not sour, much less puckering. Cherries are so muted they can come across as raspberries or some other red berry. Just un-dynamic overall.
