ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, 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.

Bottle from VP Aker Brygge enjoyed at home
Yellow hazy, huge beige head. Smell of funk, spices, citrus hops, stable, light malts, all in all quite complex. Light sweet, funk up front, citrus hops, a pletora of spices, bone dry, musty brett, fruity yeast. Alot of amazing layers! Moderate bitter, zesty and spicy tail. An superb saison!

jgb9348 (5432) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Super hazy golden honey glow with a thick, dense, three centimetre tall head that leaves a decent lace. Aroma of dry malt, wheat, flowers, grass, herbs and quite a bit of coriander seed - pungent. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and very herbal flavours with a very dry finish, showing some coriander seed and a touch of curacao. Aftertaste is all dry with a little hop character, some super mild sweetness and a lot of flowers and herbs. Overall, a good saison for sure, one that’s dry and shows the right complexity, but for the price, a decent beer at best and there are better beers in the style for MUCH cheaper without any hype. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Lueken’s Liqour in Dunedin, Florida on 03-October-2015 for US$9,99 sampled at home in Washington on Christmas Eve, 24-December-2015 while wrapping gifts for my daughters.

Fashawn (570) - ITALY - NOV 15, 2015
Bianca velata con un bel cappello di schiuma bianca, non compatto ma abbastanza grossolano, sgranati. Aroma di lievito saison, che sinsprigiona. Sentori di cantina, mela verde acerba, acidità da uva spina, unnpo’ di paglia e riminescenze di pompelmo rosa. Naso unnpo’ tenue, ma elegantissimo e complesso. Imbocco dolce con miele millefiori in prima linea, leggera nota lattico, lattosio, qualcosa tipo yogurt dolce con la frutta a polpa gialla che emerge. Anche l’uva spina, in sotto fondo, emerge e si fa apprezzare. L’acidità pulisce bene la bocca, anche se magari manca di frizzantezza. È oleosa, quasi pastosa, liscia. Buonissima

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, bright golden yellow color with a 2.5 finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Very bubbly and has good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Possibly over carbonated with tight bubbles forming around the head and item taking a long time to settle. Earthy aroma with funky farmhouse yeast and a strong musty brett presence that dominates the nose. Barnyard must with grass, straw and funky bugs followed by vinous and light fruit notes, pale malt and citrus hops. The brett and saison yeast is complimented by a complex hop profile that gives off hints of earthy grass and pine as well as some sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes. Slightly lactic amd I’m also picking up a strong bread/biscuit character as well as some light fruit as it warms. The nose on this beer is very complex with a lot of different things going in, not just farmhouse funk. The best way to describe it is that is smells like a hoppy wild wheat beer/saison hybrid with a touch of white wine. Fuller bodied than expected with tight carbonation up front as well as strong zesty spice and earthy hop flavors that linger over the other notes into a bone dry finish. Dry, earthy and bitter up front with peppery spice, earthy resinous hops and musty bugs followed by funky saison yeast, bread, biscuit and light fruit. Lots sticky, oily hop flavor up front with pine needle, grass and spruce tip along with a very prominent dry, musty brett character that’s faintly countered by sweet citrus/tropical fruit, bread, biscuit, apple and pear. A bit one dimensional with all of the dryness from the hops and brett but there is subtle sweetness and a strong bready yeast component balancing things out. Some pineapple and grapefruit hop flavor buried underneath but overall, this beer is just a bit too dry/one note for my preference. Complex for sure, but the dry hops and brett and prominent bready yeast notes overpower almost everything else.

ClubGonzo (5089) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Aker Brygge, Oslo. Pours a cloudy light golden body with a massive frothy farmhouse-style white head. Nose is wet grass, red fruits, barnyard funk, citrus, grape peel, hay and hints of wet leaves, straw, melon and lemon zest. Taste is red fruits, wet grass, citrus, grape peel, white wine, melon and hints of barnyard funk, lemon zest and hay. Light, dry body, high carbonation. Wow. This might be Prairie’s most outstanding achievement so far: a beer this clean as a basic concept (S.M.A.S.H.) yet with amazing complexity and just a fantastic farmhouse/brett profile. Incredibly tasty and moore-ish. Well done.
