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

A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 10615, meaning it was bottled on 16th April 2015. It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: It poured a cloudy copper dark orange colour with a one finger off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Not much lacing.

Aroma: Tart, funky, barnyard, apple and lime.

Taste: Sour tartness, lemon juice, orange and a strong lime finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall: This sour saison style is right up my alley and Prairie Somewhere ticks all the right boxes for me. Very enjoyable and something that I will be looking to get more of if possible. Love the bottle art as well!

Pours a nice gold-orange with a large head that just leaves a few specks. Bottle conditioned. Nose tells you it will certainly be tart. Also some citrus, but no noticeable brett. Taste has a pleasant acidity and tartness, but mild compared to many wild ales. Granny Smith apples and a touch of orange, but is fairly straightforward. Mouthfeel is nicely crisp and bubbly. Overall, a very enjoyable beer that is growing on me. More enjoyable as time goes by...

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with a two inch head that leaves a few shards of lace

Smell: Acetic tones of lemon, lime, crab apple and some funk

Taste: Acetic lime tartness dominates the front end, with lemon, crab apple; a bit of lactic sour tones through the middle; but the overwhelming sourness dominates the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a tongue prickler for sure

Overall: I am having a love/hate relationship with Prairie beers; every time I think I am done with them a beer like this one comes along to rekindle my palate

From notes.

Billowy off-white head. Straw yellow with light red hues.

Smells of brett, damp hay, pear and orange peel.

Taste involves lemon zest, sweet ripe orange, faint grain, other sour fruits and faint vanilla.

Medium with a soft middle and dry finish. Very little alcohol is noticed.

This one goes toward the top of the Prairie farmhouse list.

16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy amber/orange color with about an inch off-white head that fizzled away somewhat quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like citrus peel, lime, apricot and some funk. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some grainy malt and green apples. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's easy to drink and is well carbonated. I liked this, it's a good tart and fruity brew. Certainly worth a try! $9.99 a bottle.
