Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head. Smells of bretty funk and citrusy hops. Flavor is crackery pils malts up front with a presence of brett and citrus in the middle. Finish is moderately dry and slightly tart. The brett and citrus from the hops play so well together. Bitterness shows itself but isn't overbearing. Mouthfeel is highly effervescent but with a solid body. This is awesome. The first beer from Prairie that has truly wowed me.

This beer pours a rich yellow with a large head. The aroma is fresh clean hay, barnyard, brett, bell pepper, and white pepper. The flavor features honeydew, apricot, white grapes, white pepper, and marzipan. The mouthfeel is light bodied, fizzy, and foamy. Overall this is an absolutely delicious beer - refreshing, and yet marvelously complex, with unusual fruit notes, spice and fun. A real winner.

Here goes my 700th review! Had at Avenue Pub New Orleans. Served in a Unibroue goblet.

A- Pours a very hazy golden color with a full two finger white head that retains good and long before becoming an 1/8 inch head. Resilient lacing leaves kaleidoscopic patterns behind on the glass.

S- Simply wonderful combo of Brett and citrusy hops. It doesn't get any better than this.

T- The Brett comes in first bringing with it notes of green olive and barnyard funk, then come the bright hops that complement very nicely.

M- Crisp, tangy and sharp. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- This is what it's all about boys and girls. Definitely my favorite offering from Prairie this far.
