Eliza5beth is a golden farmhouse ale that we aged on apricots to allow sourness and light fruit flavors to add complexity to the beer.

Nice apricot character, light tartness, mild sweetness. White wine character, perhaps a touch phenolic in the finish. Very interesting beer.

JStax (4309) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2016
500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a moderately hazy gold color with a big head of white foam. The aroma has bright tropical fruit tones, a nice level of funk, and just a bit of acidity coming through. I didn’t know about the apricot addition until reading the commercial deScription afterward, but I can see that as one of the nuances of the beer. Medium acidity in the beer with juicy fruity character coming through nicely. Refreshing. Medium body and moderate carbonation despite the huge head of foam.

UXO (1135) - CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Appearance: hazy to cloudy (verging on lumpy) medium to deep gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing slowly to a thick cap, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: earthy brett funk, stone fruit, woody, dry straw, lemon zest. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (9/10) Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, dry mildly bitter and tart finish. (4/5) Really nice - even better than their Standard. For me, funky and tart are a killer combination, especially when in-spec for the style, and this delivers. That said, neither of those elements are aggressive or overdone. Very drinkable, with a dry tart finish that invites the next sip. This is definitely a beer for those who appreciate saisons, sours, and brett. (17/20)

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2016
500 ml bottle. Hazy yellow/orange body with a small off-white head. Nice, quiet funky aroma with fruit, wood, malt and grapefruit. Flavor is sweetish fruity, medium malt, some lemon acidy, pleasant funk and some grapefruit type bitterness. Fine balanced body and good, long lasting aftertaste. A fine and complex wild style Saison.

nerdboy19 (137) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - FEB 1, 2016
Great farmhouse ale from Prairie. Dark orange color. Aroma is strong brett, apricots, spicy, woody. High carbonated, may be too much, and medium-light bodied. Very drinkable, brett, spicy, fruity, dry finish. No booze at all. Slightly expensive but worth a try.

FlacoAlto (4100) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Sampled April 2014
A steady pour into my IPA glass produces a three finger thick, over the rim, pale tan colored head. The beer is a orangish tinged, straw gold color that shows a hazy, paler version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma smells earthy, a bit yeasty, with lots of dried hay / straw, as well as with a bit of musty fermentation character, and maybe even a touch of something like plastic. As the head subsides a bit, a bright, fresh apricot pulp aroma becomes much more prominent.

The beer is light bodied and slightly tart up front, it picks up solid apricot flavors in the middle and a touch more fruit accentuating tartness through to the finish. The carbonic acid and prickly carbonation adds a liveliness to the texture and also helps to accentuate the fruit character. Up front there is a touch of earthy yeastiness, and there is a backbone of hay like pale grain character as well as a pale grain like cracker, or crushed sun-baked grain flavors here. The apricot plays a definite role here in the flavor, though it is not quite as distinct as it was in the nose.

The apricots seem to wash out the flavor of the beer here, they seem to lighten the overall effect rather than fully compliment the flavors of the base beer. Still this is not overly so here, but it is a minor complaint that detracts from the impact of this beer.

Renobob (1462) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016
Bue à la pression. Type saison. Acide au nez. Palais acide et amer, levures présentes. Assez wild. Corpulence moyenne + grâce à l’alcool. Belle impression générale.

danlo (2019) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
1 pt 6 fl oz bottle from Brewdog online. Hazy yellow golden colour, white foam head and fruity aroma with apricot, yeasty, barnyard notes. Taste is sour fruity, some apricot, lemony citrus zest, grainy, yeast, funk and light spicy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry tart tangy finish. Quite drinkable.

jake65 (3157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours a soft yellow color with a light haze, small ring of white head disappears fairly quickly. The nose is bright, a little fruity and some farmhouse yeast. Taste is floral and lightly sweet before a modest sour bit. Has a little bit of dry farmhouse grass and yeast. Soft finish brings out a little more of fruitiness. Started off with this a little too cold, really enjoyed the second half of the bottle best after it sat out for an hour or so.

The complexity of Prairie Artisan Ales (PAA) is impressive--despite the common "sour" taste of most of PAA’s offerings, they’re each unmistakably well made; the tartness and yeast and effervescence all remind me of Orval, but--dare I say--better! (only, not as good at the level of crispness, but that’s because there’s more going on in these beers). I for one appreciate the fuller body and deepness of these paradoxically light yet heavy beers--light yet heavy; that’s what apricot is like, and that’s what’s captured here, subtly. Keep up the good work, PAA; you’re helping put the ’farmhouse’ style on the map.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is very rural with fruity saison notes - featuring the apricot. You get some pear, straw, apple juice and other stone fruits. The taste is lively dry and sour. you get some apricots, pears and green apples. Straw, grains and some sour citrus as well.
