3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Mile High Denver. Pours a murky black appearance with a creamy dark brown head. Big minty, sprucey, dark chocolate, roasty malty, funky, tropical fruity aroma that seems pretty conflicted. Juicy, pineapple, mango, roasty, a touch smoky malty, bretty, herbal flavor. Really a strange beer that I’m not crazy about but it’s not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ The Trappist, Oakland. Dark brown and slightly hazy with a large, foamy head. Aroma is dry roasted malt, musty basement, chocolate, citrus and some tropical fruit. Flavor is very well balanced with some sweet malt, tart yeast and bitter hops, the alcohol is well hidden. Medium body with a dry, dusty mouth feel. Very interesting beer but overall a success as the flavor come together nicely.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Definite farmhouse/ saison rises from the glass, the pour in dark with big tan foam. Great taste of Belgian farmhouse with a hop kick in the back and little hint of malt. The palate gets a full ride of category feel from this beer. This is a really good beer especially if you like farmhouse ales.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
S: Opens up with a ton of hops, melons, mangos, some pine. Followed by some of that banyard funk, grass and light pepper. P: Its pretty much black with a very thick brown head. T: The taste is piney at first, with some roast, peppercorn, powder cacao, dysel which was really bugging me, some earthy flavors and lemon towards the end which didnt compliment the rest of the flavors. M: Rather soft with a creamy texture, with high/med carbonation. O: I love these hoppy saisons that Prairie has put out but this one was a mess for me. Still a nice brew but doesnt compare with ther other brews.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a large three finger brown dense head. Unexpected fruit/floral hop aroma, sour funky taste with a bitter bite on the finish. Not a farmhouse ale but still good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 10/4 notes. Pours dark brown with 2 finger foamy tan head. Nose is cheese, hints of citrus, dank, celery, vegetables, smokey pine, some plastic. Mouthfeel is suprisingly very carbonated. Taste is smokey, bbq sauce, ash, roasty, cheese, horseradish, faint pine forest notes. Finish is smokey bitter grassy notes. A bit strange, but interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with pillowy tan head, decent retention, some sheets of lace. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, piney. Flavor is citrus, piney, resinous hops up front, with a funky, mildly tart, roasted malt finish. Glad to find that the flavor had more balance than the aroma. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and crisp texture. A tasty, dark, hoppy, funky beer.
