Decent Belgian ale, nice and crisp but just too yeasty for me. Nice clear golden color with a little fluffy white head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, fruity hops and a little malt. Tastes quite sour, lots of fresh fruit and yeast with some biscuit, malt, grain and just a hint of zest hops. No real bitterness to balance the sweet yeast. Smooth mild thin mouthfeel, good carbonation. Overall solid, just not really my style of beer. But I love this brewery.

Picked up for a couple bucks at the Vintage Estate in Ohio
Looks rather hazy with a massive two inch foam head that pulls back to spotty lacing. Smells of typical Saison fanfare fruity esters and good hops with slight lemon and spice. Taste is pretty loyal to the Belgium Saison very dry fruity esters and a bit of sour lemon then a kick of hops in the finish. Body is fairly light but not light enough to chug. Overall a great beer one I could have a pack of if I ever found it.

NO can date, just a code
Pours a nice creamy foamy 1+ finger head that fades semi slowly, nice sticky lacing, good retention, hazy bright golden color

Nose a hint of grassy hops, but big farmhouse saison, nice mild spices and pehnol notes, touch peppery, fruity esters, a touch tree fruit like pear and lemony, little farmhouse funk notes, doughy malt

Taste brings lemony notes out front, nice fruity esters and fruity hops, lemon juicy fruit, apple pear notes, a little grassy floral, touch spicy phenols, peppery as well, a bit of farmhouse funk, mild bitterness, apple skin and a little lemon zest, mild doughy malt but not much, little cereal grain, drier finish, more apple pear juice and plenty of lemon citrus with a little malt

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent fizzy carb

Overall not bad, nice farmhouse saison, good fruits and yeast additions, nice hop characters, pretty well done in general

-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: A pale straw pour appears a pale lemonade coloring in the vessel. A porous soapy head is linen white and holds its own before large and soapy patches on the vessel walls. The carbonation is light and light.

S: Sweet apricot, honeydew, and some finishing pear first appears on the nose. Fruity and fresh, of good strength. Morning dew on grass scents, light citrus peel, freshly cut, along with some musky hay/straw funk.

T: The flavor was fruity, of melons and grapes, along with some fresh citrus that brings a good start as well a light bit of funky yeast. Straw, spicy hops and tropical notes add highlights along with some lightly sour tropical pineapple. Sharp in nature along with some damp citrus floral.

M: Very bubbly and active mouthful is lively with carbonation. Sharp and defined with a medium malty feel.

O: A hoppy forward saison, light funk, with a showcase of breakfast fruit and a dry tart tropical finish. At 3.9% abv is something I would of never guessed. Has great malt support and loads of hops and flavor with a dry tart finish, again, hard to fathom all this in a 3.9% package. A nice tart summer saison, with session like alcohol makes this a solid thirst quencher/lawnmower style loaded with body and flavor that surely won't disappoint.

A- Can poured into a tulip glass with a slightly cloudy, pale golden body and a thick creamy head. The head retention is pretty good with spotty lacing at the top of the glass.

S- A dry and pungent farmhouse yeast opens things up with a fair amont of hoppiness beyond that. The yeast is rather fruity with pale fruits like white grapes and pears joined by notes of Belgian yeast spice, herbs, citrus zest and floral, grassy hop hints. The yeast takes over with time.

T- Bold Saison yeast saturates the taste buds with strong contingents of spicy and fruity flavors. A bit more citrus comes to mind like lemon zest perhaps from both the yeast and hops. Vinous pale grapes, pear, apple, white pepper, coriander, cardamom, vanilla sweets, orange zest, herbs and floral hops.

MF- A very, very light and crisp body. The texture does some work to make it more substantial on the palate with a frothy consistency. Comes off bit thin and ends with a clean herbal bitterness lingering long.

A fairly hoppy Saison with a very fruity and somewhat spicy ferment from a bold yeast strain. Good and flavorful but doesn't do enough to separate from the pack of Saisons and also has a somewhat thin body.

Cloudy light golden yellow color with a 2F head. Tulip.
Pronounced spice aroma.
Thin body, as the beer warms up, its hardly noticeable.

Excellent citrus- spicy taste, followed by a hoppy finish.

Good classic Saision taste profile.

I love this brewer, unfortunately this is one of their first misses in my book...

Looked great coming out of the can - bright amber colored liquid, light on the foam and no lacing, and the smell was sweet with citrus but you could tell there was a strong hoppy nose to it. The mouthfeel is a tad watery though mostly just light-bodied and even crisp, but the taste - man-o-man, the taste - way too bitter for farmhouse ales I am used to. Overall, it's still a decent brew and I'm sure there are others out there that will find this very enjoyable.

PRAIRIE ERA FARMHOUSE ALE 9/6/18

Bought a single today because we have only recently gotten Prairie in my state and they have a couple of well-regarded brews (neither of which I have seen here yet).

Poured from the 12 oz. can into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Translucent dark gold with a finger thick white head which receded to nada.

s: Belgian yeast esters.

t: Follows the nose with the usual sourness and banana notes. Dry sour finish.

m: Medium, good body and some carbonation tingle.

o: An average farmhouse. I did not find it especially "hoppy," but perhaps the Belgian yeast masked other flavors and the usual hop bitterness. Not a style I usually seek out, but ok for what it is. Probably should have saved it for my sour-loving daughter, but I hadn't had one in the style for awhile. It just reminded me why I tend to avoid farmhouse/saison/lambic/gueze/gose.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/20/2018. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape, coriander, peppercorn, clove, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy/light funky yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape, coriander, peppercorn, clove, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/zesty/floral/grassy bitterness, peppery yeast spiciness, and wheat tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, melon, red/green apple, white grape, coriander, peppercorn, clove, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/light funky yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and no astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.9%. Overall this is a delicious session saison! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy/light funky yeast, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very well rounded saison yeast complexity with solid Brett presence; nice pale/wheat malt backbone for the ABV, and solid earthy hop balance. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

Prairie is currently my favorite brewery. This beer tastes like Prairie Standard watered down 30%. The farmhouse mouthfeel is there. The taste is not. No hops.
