This isn’t the most accessible beer, but it is chock full of awesome. The Pilsner malt encourages the wearing of a nice trucker’s cap while the NS hops and perhaps the farmhouse yeast make one wonder exactly how many passports this beer is holding. The hops are intensely bitter, the yeast sports funk and acidity while there is a bit of salty character in the malt. This is a rich, complex, category bending romp.

Awesome funky fresh tropical farmhouse aroma, the yeast and hops really work well together here. It pours a cloudy yellow color with huge thick head. The taste has some great hoppy dry bitterness. Medium bodied, lively and had long satisfying finish. This may be my new favorite beer and I can actually get it in Hawaii , the high ABV is not even noticeable on the palate this beer really is work of art.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy orange with a white head. Enticing, fresh, distinct aroma of farmhouse, mild brett, hay, grass, lemon and french lavender soap. Sweetish, hoppy, herbal flavor. Semi dry grapey finish. Wellcrafted, but not as exceptional as the storytelling led me to believe.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 Magnifique broue, nez fantastique du sauvin, sa corpulence est infusée de jus fruité. Le brett est savonneux et donne une touche poivrée. Finalement je met dans ma bouche prairie artisan ales pour la premiere fois et je vais m’en souvenir.

Aroma is tropical fruit, malts and big/mildly strange spices. The flavor is tropical fruit, those mildly strange spices and a tangy/earthy finish.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. The pour is a hazy yellowish-orange color with a good, thick fluffy white head that laces well. The aroma bursts of tropical fruit, lemon, and flowery notes; plenty of funky brett; some lavender, hops, as well as alcohol. Wow, this smells just wonderful. The flavors don’t come together quite like the scent does, probably due to its strength, but this tastes really good too. Slick herbal character mixes with fruity apple, pear, lemons. Straw, bretty notes offer nice saison depth; tangy, funky, with a dry, bitter hop finish. Another good one from Prairie. I feel a little cheated by the 500 ml bottle versus a 750.
