18.06.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, hay, mild brett, light malts, citrus peel, flowers, dried fruits, alcohol, yeast, weeds, hints of tropical fruits. Taste is slightly harsh yeasty, citrus peel, mild brett, flowers, hay, alcohol, weeds, minerals, bark, citrus, hints of dried fruits and tropical fruits. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel, high carbonation. Fair enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Nearly clear yellow body with an enormous, chunky white & porous head; lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is a Brett bomb; damp hay, musty cotton blankets, funky & tart pineapple, straw, hint of white grape skins, just a very mellow acidity on the back with a touch of dirt & earthiness. More yeast-forward flavor, bubblegum notes, musty wood, cotton, dusty cobweb funk. Again, big brettanomyces presence. Woody, funky, pineapple-tinted Brett finish, dry as can be. Perhaps some light earthiness, otherwise the Saaz hops could be anything. A good saison, although it doesn’t stand out enough to make it great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Banana, bread, lemon, and some spice in the aroma. Flavor is fruity, with banana and citrus, plus some earthy bitterness. A little peppery spice in the aroma, as well as some drying alcohol. I’ve had a lot of very average saisons lately, but this is one solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy glowing yellow, light foamy head. Smells like black pepper, barnyard. Tastes light and refreshing, with a peppery funk that is complex but not out in front. Just right.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with big white head. Nose is a lot of Brett and Saaz. Maybe a little pineapple. Taste is also Brett with some pepper and candy. Refreshing. Dry aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via Chad – thanks! Huge gusher caught me off guard… frantic run to the sink to salvage just about a full goblet from the 500ml bottle. Lots of sediment and haze, sort of a golden orange color topped with a monster white head. Nose is mild, rather typical farmhouse elements of yeast, grain, florals, and faint tropical fruit. Extremely soft feel for the high carbonation. Light grain, earthy bits, and florals. Has a very light spice presence. Easy drinker, soft, not as defined as some of the other Prairie ales I’ve tried.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Smell is slightly tart fruit, funk, barnyard, citrus, vanilla, caramel. Taste is hoppy citrus with a very light fruit tart, some vanilla caramel sweetness. Smooth easy to drink with good flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass shared with a buddy. Milky bright golden with a thin, frail white head. Quite pungent, funky citrus, green bitter herbs, peppery, zingy, spicy, quite funky, light wheat notes, certainly has character. Medium body, restrained, creamy effervescence. More friendly and less funky than the nose, esters, toasted wheat, still fairly funky though with bitter green herbs; dry with gentle bitterness and a really friendly malty, ester finish. Nice stuff.
