I really did not like this, but it was my first soul farmhouse ale. I guess I just don't like sours. I could not finish my glass. The other non-taste characteristics were nice which makes me think overall it's a good beer, it just wasn't for me. The color was a vibrant yellow-ish reminding me of not-quite-ripe peaches. and the head was snow-white. It looked really awesome.

Very high carbonation level. Overflowed the bottle upon opening it. Only got about three ounces out of the bottle. Cloudy straw color, foamy head, smells funky and tastes funky too... From what little I could try

Flat, bland, blegh. Honestly not a fan of this one. Not one of Prarie's best efforts...

Color- cloudy gold. Full head.

Aroma- hibiscus, dry dust, hint of lemon.

Taste- A flowery, wheaty sour ale. Reminds me of a dry, sour wit beer with hints of bitter dust. I'm a sour beer fan, but this is imbalanced.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted June 2014.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing, on to the beer:

This collaboration saison was a strange one. Its golden color is normal, though it didn't come with much head nor lace. The nose...urinal cake? Unsweetened lemon. Even the lemon has some accent I can't put my finger on. It got weirder. Tastes tangy and prickly, like a cactus. There's a quick spiciness which disappears as quick as it appears. Do I taste tarragon? This is pushing my bounderies, both good and bad. Not necessarily a bad beer, but my senses were happy to taste the next beer in line.

Poured from a 25 ounce corked and caged bottle. Pale straw color with tons of bubbles. Smells of a lambic and a farmhouse ale, and the flavor follows right behind. I found this to be a rather odd brew, with the farmhouse and lambic flavors competing throughout. Not a fan.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, citrus fruit, citrus juice, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus juice, overripe citrus fruit, plastic, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer with really nice sour citrus aromas, but the overripe citrus fruit and plastic combination in the taste makes this one hard to drink much of.

Serving type: bottle.

Golden color and clear. Fizzy upon opening, head of small bubbles that dissipates quickly. In the aroma, there is a cat pee smell that stands out (yes, that's a real distinctive smell. Google it). Also lemonade. The taste is very much like some kind of soft drink, maybe ginger ale mixed with Coke. Or some lemony soda pop. Lemon hard-candy sweetness. Light in body. High in carbonation. Overall, a fairly light drinkable beer that tastes very much like fizzy lemonade. However, most flavors seem somewhat artificial.

Recommend? Nope. Especially not to traditional Lambic fans, who appreciate authentic flavors.
Buy again? Nah. Not cheap either, at around $12.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Flat golden body. The thinnest collar.

Smell - Bretty and fruity. Tropical fruit. Earthy.

Taste - Brett is strong, as is the tropical fruit. The brett wins the battle, though. Bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Flat. Medium body and a little tang.

Overall - Always weird from St. Somewhere. Could use some carbonation.
