Prairie Somewhere

A: Golden orange, very hazy, large white head, decent retention, leaves essentially zero lazing. 4

S: This has an incredible aroma. Tart, citrus, wild bacteria plastic like funk, oaky. Awesome. 4.5

T: Funkier than the aroma implied, and less sour/tart. Floral and farmhouse funk. Herbaceous, some citrus. 4

M/D: Fuller side of medium body, carbonation in the heavier size, drinkability is pretty good. 3.75

O: Overall quite good, I would have preferred that more of the tart characters from the aroma came out in the taste but very enjoyable nonetheless. 4

500 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a cloudy orange/amber, with a medium head and a good amount of foamy cling. Smell is yeast, tart, sour, light malt, a general fruity, berry- like aroma. Got some banana on the first pour. Taste is an acetic sour, tartness, yeast, citrus- lemon stuck out for me, light malt. A little bltterness hits midway. Crisp, well carbonated, good body.

This is pretty good, glad I tried it. It just doesn't stand out in any way, and it doesn't do typical in an above average way. Prairie comes at a high price point, so I won't buy again.

Smell is straight barnyard funk, mixed berries, fresh cut grass, and citrus. Taste is heavy on the citrus, particularly lemon, with a fairly light tartness. Finish is fairly crisp, and makes for a refreshing beer.

Orange-ish amber in color with a white to off white head that dissipates to cap while drinking. Tart lemon notes with a background of some Belgian yeast and really mild pepper flavors. Citrus juice is on the nose and the flavor. Easy to drink and great for some hot weather if you want a little more heft than a session beer.

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a pint glass. Thanks Sean for this bottle.

Pours an amber hazy orange body with a fizzy but frothy white head that reduces slowly to leave little lacing and some retention.

Aroma is faint.. Dill pickles, sours lactic, lime juice, citrus and some spices. On the tongue is tart citrus rind, lemons, sour apple, finish is smooth and crisp with medium high carbonation.

Overall decent.. Pretty crushable for 7% I have to say. Can tell its kettle though.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of limes and lactobacillus yeast are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by sour flavors from the lactobacillus and also has some notes of lime.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like a mixture of a Berliner Weissbier and a saison with some added lime juice. It is rather light, refreshing, and very easy to drink.

Poured from a 500mL bottle. Bottle gushed when opened.

The look is not what I expected, as the appearance is much darker than I anticipate from a Prairie Saison. Smell is loads-o-funk with green apples...now you got my attention. Taste is very tart up front, and almost reminded me of a SARA farmhouse ale. It has an odd and mildly unpleasant finish that I am having a hard time putting an adjective to. The feel is thinner than I'd like, and the massive carbonation that gushed when the bottle was opened is now almost non-existent. Overall it is an up and down experience and I much prefer other Prairie saisons to this.
