Had this on draft while in OKC. No head at all, but the color is “pretty “. The tastes way out does the smell. A great tasting “sour”. But more sweet than sour. Pretty interesting beer, I’d order another.

Look: hazy straw color. Very thick beige head that dissipates fast. Minor lacing.

Smell: it smells exactly like opening a bag of skittles (original flavors, red bag) and taking a deep whiff. No other hints are present, and absolutely nothing about the smell tells me this is a beer.

Taste: it all goes off the rails here. It tastes like skittles soaked in lemon juice. The sour ale is just SOUR, with no real ale flavor apparent at all. The artificial fruit flavors of skittles are very overpowering, and the sourness doesn’t mix well.

Feel: unremarkable except for being overly carbonated even after a very hard pour.

Overall: never again. I don’t know what anybody sees in this. It’s too sour with no actual ale flavor of note, the skittles are too overpowering, there’s too much carbonation, the artificial fruit sweetness does not mesh well with the sourness of the ale, and to top it off there’s artificial coloring in this. Definitely the worst thing I’ve ever tried from Prairie.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a very foamy head that lasts quite a while. Leaves s lit of lacing on the surface and the glass. Aroma taste of lemonade; sweet but very tart. A good summer brew.

12oz can. Stamped on can bottom is 'CANNED ON 12/19/2213 (obvious oddity for dating)'.
Turgid, brownish orange colored body. Wanted to overflow upon opening. Thin finger of head, which consists of off white head and chunks. Oily residue left behind.
Aroma of orange, lemon, and lime, with some sweet candy.
Taste is sweet candy, with flavors of orange, lemon, and lime. Result is candy sweet but citrus sour. Sour sweet continue into the aftertaste.
Thicker than medium mouth feel. Sour layer which is overlaid with sweet candy. Supportive carbonation.
Exhibits the characteristics of a kettle sour but has some over-the-top additions (candy) that make the beer stand out.

Pours pink with a moderate amount of carbonation forming a three finger head. Aroma is delightful -- crisp, clean and effervescent, this is a delightful nose tempter. The profile is nearly identical to those commercials for candy from rainbows. A fruity, sweet profile dominates here. Taste is quite sweet and sour; frankly, wonderful. Very citrus, with lemon and lime foremost. This is simply highly recommended.

Poured into shaker. Unfiltered grapefruit body, opaque and dull pink. Pinkwhite head that dissipates to a big patch of lace. Dissolved pieces of candy floating in it.

Smells exactly like a handful of Skittles.

Taste follows. I have to assume there's booze in this; I can't tell.

Feel: Well, the dissolving pieces of candy added some texture. Thick and smooth, lightly carbed.

When the revolution comes, beers like this will be first against the wall. We've gone too far and we've much farther to go.
