3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle from Bottles and Cans in Northcenter, Chicago. Although I was initially skeptical, Iím starting to appreciate the benefits of having the distribution goliath that is Wirtz entering the craft beer beer market with some new labels in Chicagoland. Prairieís íMerica is tart, dry, funky, and potently aromatic with a white wine-like nose. It has a tinted yellow appearance, sizzling foam that dissipates quickly after the pour, and a foggy hue. The nose is pears, white grapes, and farmhouse funk. The taste is big, loaded with the same elements found in the aroma, plus a sharp, puckering tart aspect. The palate crackles with all those vicious flavors, although it sits on the light side of medium bodied. If you donít like your beer funky and ripe, you may want to pass on this one. Farmhouse fans will enjoy it though in all itís mouth bombing glory. As far as a saison goes, this is about as bold as anything Iíve ever had in the style.

Wow... Pours a cloudy golden color with a fluffy finger of foam. The nose opens with some nice background malt, grassy melon and some rustic yeast notes. The palate continues with this great combination... perfectly balanced yet highly complex. Great integration of hops and farmhouse yeast... probably the best american farmhouse beer Ive ever had ! This shit makes me go Yee- Haw ! Keep up the great work guys.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml. bottle from Star Grocery. It pours a very clear yellow color with a large fizzy white head that shrinks rather quickly. The aroma is intense and interesting with a complex blend of spicy/cattiness, white grape, grass, garlic and some background pineapple. The flavor is similarly explosive with a very dry, spicy yeast character. Lots of onion/garlic peppery notes with some white wine, pear and pineapple on the back end. Very strong bitterness and spicy yeast finish. An aggressive beer and powerful drinking experience.
