Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared at the 8th Richmond Industry Gathering, 12/1/13. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Aroma of earth, pepper, herbal and floral notes, honeysuckle. The taste is pale malts, herbal, floral and pepper notes. Medium bodied, well balanced, very nice.

TomDecapolis (4445) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma of bretty barnyard funk, mixed citrus, floral and peppery notes, white wine and very perfumey. Flavor of the same brett character that was coming through in the aroma. Very dry, bready malt, citrus, floral and also perfume like. Need to get my hands on some Prairie Farmhouse yeast! Reminds me a lot of Jolly Pumpkin.

500 ml bottle from the Beer Monger in Portland.

For New Year’s Eve 2013, my first encounter with Prairie. This is a beautiful beer, straw gold with a perfect white head. Big, big aroma: juicy grapefruit and brett, onions and garlic, white wine and must, cut hay behind it all. Catnip. Quite a showcase for Nelson Sauvin. Tons of flavor as well. Grapefruit and black pepper, skunk piss. Tons of drying brett from the mid-taste on. I’m duly impressed. This beer’s merit stands on its elements rather than on a magical intersection of those elements -- but Merica!

cbfobes (2275) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle shared by heykevin, pours a hazy light yellow and a white head, the aroma was full of barnyard and must, a little more dirty than I was initially expecting from it, the flavor had quite a bit of must and dirt on the front end with a little bit of the hops coming through in the finish, really musty though, was hoping for it to be a little more bright and vibrant.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 11, 2013
FROM NOTES: October 18, ’13. A: HOLY FUNKY! The Nelson Sauvin hops give off a really musty white wine, overtly floral pungent character with a funky Belgian yeast mix. A: Pours a very light moderately hazy golden color with two fingers of foam which quickly recedes and leaves no lacing. T: Follows the nose with floral, musty white wine notes, a Belgian yeasty funk with hints of mustard and lemon notes. Lemony and funky yeasty finish. P: medium body and moderate carbonation. O: This saison just isn’t for me, but I can see that some make like the funky mix of strong flavors.

Beerman6686 (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2013
This one poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of brett, mild barny smell, and some fruity hops. Falvor was mild fruity hops, think this one is a little old, grassy, ryustic and lots of brett. Damn tasty hybrid beer.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pour is pale yellow and very cloudy. Large white head. Aroma is bubblegum hop with spicy saison notes and light lemon. Flavor is a little spicy up front with floral hop notes coming through next. Then some more spice and earthy notes. Interesting.

DSG (5674) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Great funky aroma with brett, yeast, flowers, tropical fruits and lots of citrus. Flavor is yeasty, dry, slightly sourish, with brett, flowers, soapy notes, fruits and a strong hoppy bitterness, quite grapefruity. Medium-bodied. Lovely.

ajnepple (2001) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Pale yellow appearance with a sticky white head. Funky, tart, fruity aroma with yeast, herbs and light spices. Similar flavor, not too funky. Light soft body with a thin feel and a smooth refreshing finish.

Mora2000 (5569) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Hazy straw color with a large white head. The aroma has some nice grass and orange notes as well as some biscuit malt, brett character and light funk. The flavor is also very nice. I get some wild, funky brett notes as well as some biscuit malt and orange citrus. The flavor is quite juicy, even though the brett adds some dryness and leather-like character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great beer.
