L-Pours a very defined two fingered soapy head the dissipates fairly quickly. Hazy, honey gold body with lively carbonation.
S-The aroma is sugary sweet lemon with a solid amount of fresh vanilla. Smells like a lemon tart/lemon meringue pie.
T-On the tongue, I get immediate fresh sweet and sour lemon and lemon zest. (legitimately puckered) This is followed by a nice hint of vanilla. There is a slight bitter finish that plays well into the lemon.
F-Light bodied slightly drying finish. Solid carbonation on the tongue.
O-I haven't had a kettle style in a long time because I think it's kind of a cheap way of brewing beer. (I much prefer lambics) But I do have to say, if I'm ever going to have a kettle sour, it will be from Prairie. They have mastered quality beers in this style, and although I believe sours are a dying trend, I think they are keeping it relevant enough.

So, yeah. I guess I'm with the in-crowd here. It's a really solid beer. There is nothing bad about this at all, and it's a fun to drink. It tastes like lemons and vanilla with a hint of bitterness at the end. Fun, refreshing, well-crafted, and enjoyable.

Hazy/cloudy orangish yellow color with a modest white head.
The aroma is lemon with a bit of vanilla in the background. The taste is lemon meringue pie with a bit of light malt in the background, very lemon, tart but with a bit of vanilla softening the rough edges.
The body is light/medium, nice carbonation level, actually fairly smooth and very drinkable. Altogether, this is a tasty and refreshing brew, I don't think I could drink a lot of these, but it is a very enjoyable change of pace.

Pours smooth with an opaque orange brushed with a hint of amber topped with a white head.
Smells like a sour, with typical lactic notes but clear lemon and vanilla. Almost marshmallow like in a sense. Definitely smooth and tasty, the lemon mixes well with the sour notes and the vanilla balances things out. It's very crisp especially for a sour. Carbonated feel that bubbles up on the tongue. Canned on 6/24/21 and consumed on 7/16/22. Still very much good.

Picked up a single can of this at the gas station that still has ipas that are 3 years old at 2x the markup. At least this was only $3.49 per can.

Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow into a 2017 Marquette jersey pint glass. Doesn't really make much of a head of appearance impression. The smell delivers on what they claim to be: Lemon. You can take a little bit of vanilla here in the nose too.

The taste isn't harsh or anything, its just very straightforward simplistically: Lemon. Yes, there is a good degree of vanilla to it. Lemon meringue if you will. The lemon is nice. So I mean, you make a lemon beer, the lemon taste is well done, can't be a bad thing right? Well, the other problem is, that is all I liked about it. Struggled to have the usual beer aspects of the beer. Wasn't overly juicy, but it was just all lemon and vanilla, hops, malt and yeast gtfo ya know?

One and done.

i remember when these guys made funky saisons, ah the days. now everything is some gimmicky new wave sour, not sure why i still get excited for each of them, but i do. boy do i wish this didnt have vanilla in it, the lemon flavor is natural and bold and rightly acidic with the lactic tartness of the base beer, and some pale wheat can still be appreciated in the flavor, its not all juice at the expense of being a beer, but this vanilla is so overdone it just takes this immediately to dessert status, a trend chaser, why in the world does it have to be in everything all the time these days?! argh! way cool lemon flavor here though, a technically solid base sour with some malt to it, clean in its souring and in its final ferment, and summery as they come even with some body, dry and fizzy too so everything about it hits right, except for the almost pie vibes the vanilla brings, its the most dominant flavor, especially on the back end and as it warms, disappointing because the rest of it rules. this directional change that these guys made a few years ago was whack, at first i was excited to see their beer in cans, now i know that its not what it used to be. this one has all the potential in the world, although i guess thats true with most of their canned sours. gone are the days though...
