750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a couple inch frothy off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like grainy/bready malt, lemon peel, hay, apples and grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some peppery spice, pears and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's well carbonated, creamy and easy to drink. I liked this brew a lot, I wouldn't mind picking up another bottle the next time I come across it. $13.99 a bottle.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - The cork shoots off dramatically. Pours with huge white head. Pocked with islands of foam.

Smell - A tinge of bright lemony acidity. Grainy. Pale malt doughiness.

Taste - Really grainy. Sweet doughy malts again. A little bit earthy in the back. Bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Too sweet and bitter at the same time.

Overall - I don't dig the extreme graininess.

Spelt Saison colloboration between Prairie Artisan Ales & Choc

Opens with subtle pop, pours a slightly hazed amber with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Some lacing & head retention, stays hazy

S: Yeasty, porridge & white pepper, peaches late to the party

T: Porridge, mangoes, white pepper & some lemon zest up front & grapefruit, plus pears. Green apple peels as this warms, some more porridge, a touch of golden delicious apples, more dryness & grapefruit & even some peach. Finishes with some over-ripe pear, grapefruit, a bit of peppery hops, plus a touch of passion fruit

MF Medium body with slight carbonation. Carbonation picks up as this warms

I'm not a huge fan of Spelt in beers usually. This really works for me, this beer doesn't have crazy funkyness, but is just put together well & super drinkable

Thanks to Thomas and Jenny for this one!
Spelt Saison edition

Hazy light orange, copious foam, lasting surface coverage, random spotty lacing.

Aroma is funky Brett in spades, floral, turned earth, wet hay, sweaty cheese rind. Tastes much the same, bone dry and Bretty. Funky and tangy, medium bodied, lightly phenolic in the aftertaste. Overall it's pretty good, reminds me of Saison-Brett somewhat.
