750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Crazy that this stuff is showing up around here. Glad to see it. Pours a slightly hazed bright golden color with a finger of fizzy white head that settles into a film. Aroma of husky grains, lemon, basement funk, straw, and dough. Flavor of sweet dough, basement funk, sugar, straw, and cheese. However, this gives way to a boozy note at the end that spoils it from being outstanding. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry mouthfeel that doesn’t end as nice as it starts. Otherwise, great.

Tmoney99 (11620) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy golden color with a large frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, malt, floral and citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex beer.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy light gold with thin white lacing. Smells good too; dry and a little yeasty with citrus zest. Tastes like it smells, only less robust. Nice on the palate. Good beer.

marcus (7235) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours clear golden with a massive white head and a fruit and bread aroma. There is a pleasantly sour pilsner malt flavor with a little fruitiness and a firm yeast presence. Dry on the palate and quite refreshing.

22 ounce bottle from Bottles and Cans in Northcenter, Chicago. Although I was initially skeptical, I’m 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. Prairie’s ’Merica 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 don’t like your beer funky and ripe, you may want to pass on this one. Farmhouse fans will enjoy it though in all it’s mouth bombing glory. As far as a saison goes, this is about as bold as anything I’ve ever had in the style.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Funky barnyard notes that intensified as I drank the bottle. Lots of sediment at the end of the bottle. Yeast, hay, melon and pineapple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonkeyBra (3655) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazed bright orange with a big thick white head. A bright hop aroma fills the room. Aroma of basement funk, cheese, dust and cobwebs. Some spice intertwined with grassy hops. Flavor is funky. One of the funkiest beers I’ve ever tasted. Strong agressive hop presence coupled with this wild funky yeast. Some bread and and grass notes as well. Medium bodied. This is a special beer.

750ml bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of hay, melon and some pineapple pulp. Flavors are funky pineapple and hay with some light dry funky aftertaste. A solid sasion to drink in the Florida heat.
