look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a semi-hazed peach/straw color with much effervescence & pinky of cream colored head. A modicum of head retention & lacing

S: Sourness, wet grass clippings, funk & dirtyness

T: Follows the nose, pears, peaches , some grapefruit & dryness up front. Mustyness, sourness, plus peaches, a touch of strawberry, dryness oakyness & bit of Chardonnay as this warms, more grapefruit & lemon zest too. Finishes dry, musty with peach, white grapes & grapefruit & general barn yard funkyness

MF: Soft, delicate carbonation & light/medium body. Superb balance

Drinks like a dream, could pound this all day in the Oklahoma heat, but probably not advisable. More of a sour to me than a Saison, but these guys have certainly expanded my acceptance of how a style can be expanded or interpreted. Another winner from Prairie, my favorite so far

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 @ beer tasting on 1/31/2015. Pours hazy light golden in color with minimal bubbly effervescent head. Aroma is tart citrus, yeasty funk, and hints of wood. Medium body, nice carbonation with some trub-like particulate. Taste is lemon, white grape, oak and funky yeast elements nicely balanced. Very drinkable saison and the barrel aging adds a nice dimension.
