a nice sour but, for me, just OK. I LOVE Prairie and just felt that, as sours go, this might have been more? Something, can't put my finger on it but just.......... I measure all sours to the Funkatorium in Asheville and that's a tough measure.

Purchased online and poured into a teku. Smell and taste like citrus and lime, with note of orange. Very sour, but not overly so. A good balance for an excellent saison/farmhouse Ale. Definitely worth it.

A: Poured into a tulip to a deep golden orange topped by a dense two finger white head that fades to a small mat around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of sourness and funk with some peach like fruitiness. A little spice and honey at times as well.
T: Taste is peaches with some nice tartness, slight funk as well along with some spice notes. Swallow is a nice sourness with some lingering fruitiness and a little funk.
M: Fairly light on the palate but it isn't watery. Carbonation on this beer is a little prickly but it isn't too bad. The beer also has a drying finish from the acidity.
O: Overall this is a really nice sour beer. It isn't bracingly sour but it has a very nice pucker. There are some nice flavors to this beer as well and the complexity is pretty solid. If you like sour beers but don't like them to be super sour this is one to try.

Cloudy golden tan color with a head that kept going but went away quick. Strong tart sour scent. Tangy citrus pepper scents in there. Taste like a saison and a sour mixed together. Has that Belgium yeast but also some sour citrus pepper in there. Medium light body with a lot of carbonation. Very different and good farmhouse sour.

No label information. Prairie Somewhere is brewed in the style of a Farmhouse Ale. Available in 16.9 oz. bottles and on limited draft.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

(Appearance) Gusher alert! Pours a crisp, fizzy head of an ecru-white tone over a densely hazy copper-amber body with ample carbonation. Retention is poor and there is no visible lacing. 2.5

(Smell) Tangy citrus notes, slightly peppery, some moderate farmhouse funk qualities with a comparatively mild malt and hop profile. Potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) Tangy acidic yeast character, incredibly dry with a chalky dry pale malt profile. Light toasted bread malts with mild hop characters. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly chewy, chalky dry. Carbonation is full, generating a moderate frothiness and a briskly crisp finish. Body is medium for the style, shy of medium overall. Balance is dry, tangy and acidic over sweet. Alcohol presence is mild and there are no off characters. I found this beer was overcarbonated and a bit too dry. 3.25

(Overall) A decent farmhouse ale with a nice level of acidity and tanginess but a chalky dry delivery that makes it less enjoyable than expected. I'm unsure of whether this was due to a quality control issue or if it is a result of long term-storage, but I was a little bit let down by the balance of flavor in this ale. 3.5
