Prairie artisan ales Prairie ale. Poured into a Teku glass with an ample 2 plus fingers of fluffy head. Supreme carbonation streaming up from the glass.

Aroma is a bouquet of Belgian yeast character. A bit dry on the nose and a bit funky, almost like that of Brett. Some white wine character with a surprising amount of oak.

Taste is pure Belgian bliss. I would compare this to any of the best Belgian ales available. I prefer this, as it remains relatively dry throughout the sip. Moderate amount of Belgian spice, some fresh cut hay, a little bit of funk. A light citrusy kick in the middle with a mild dry bittering finish.

Overall, this is a superb beer. It is paired with Brie, truffled Gouda, chorizo, salami, and Serrano ham. It gets a 97/100.

Reviewing a little late.
C&C bottled poured into tulip.

A-the beer pours a straw color but pretty hazy.

S-woah, this beer smells awesome. Funk, wet hay. Bret. More funk. Spice. the bret comes thru much more than the first time around(when it first hit shelves)

T-real light and dry with a great bret flavor. Spicy pepperness(from the yeast?) Very nice and refreshing. Very drinkable, dangerously so.

M- light and maybe a little grassy. Easy drinking while being pretty complex as well.

O-I really like this beer. Have had it a few times and each time the bret seems to have come forward more. Defiantly worth trading for and picking up(if its in your market)
