Quite a pale straw colour; pretty decently cloudy. Head is thin, cloudy, just a rim of lace. OK I guess.

Smells organic, fairly Bretty and funkadelic. Decent oak aroma, French and buttery, with a touch of lemon and packham pear. Not bad.

Taste is funky, actually fairly bitter. Lots of horse blankety funk, with hints of oak, chartreuse, touch of tobacco, lemon and even honey. Mostly a slightly rubber funk though, and clean on the back enough to be enjoyed.

Bit sharp on the mid, dries up quite a lot on the back. Not too bad.

Funky, organic-tasting beer. Nothing too exciting, but well put together.

Hazy yellow golden colored. A half inch thick off white head with vibrant carbonation bubbles within the beer. Brussels lacing. Aromas of pineapple, mango and a bit of funk waft out of my glass. The taste of peppery saison yeast is on the front of the palate. It is followed quickly by a gentle touch of the earthy rye. The rye lingers in the aftertaste along with the pineapple and mango notes. The carbonation on this beer is moderate and the mouth is pretty crisp and dry.

Bottle poured into spiegelau glass

A - Hazy lemon yellow

S - lots of lemon citrus and yeast

T - lots of Belgian yeast and citrus sweetness - not getting any sort of barrel notes here

M - meh

O - not impressed at all with this. Prairie has some good beers, but I find this one to be way overvalued and lacking the barrel flavor that is promised.
