3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Transparent soft yellow pour; very clean appearance. The aroma is herbal, and aerated; minerals, leafy mint and further herbs together with sugar for a fluoride like effect. Softened, yeast oriented flavor offering peppercorns, white grape and yellow apple, and the high tang of pineapple. It is pleasant and organized, but feels a little stripped; the body is crisp and shallow. A bottled version might be more representative of this beer’s possibilities.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml purchase at the Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury (VT) on August 19, 2014. Golden cream, medium head. Dry yeast aroma, soft herbs and field berry notes. Taste of citrus herbs, very dry yeast, the aftertaste is equally dry without any scenes of alcohol. Dry and funky, I like it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light slightly hazy golden with some sudsy white head. Nose is lemony sour, slightly tropical, tiny bit of funk, some bread dough. Flavor is tropical juice, lemon zest, a little bit of funk, slight banana, a little clove. Finish is dry, slightly sour and grainy. Alcohol is hidden amazingly, and body is medium to heavy with perfect carbonation for the style. Really balanced and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a cloudy blond body with a huge white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy, herbal, and yeasty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, coriander, grainy, and citrusy notes. Once again, alcohol is barely noticeable. Ends with a very long, dry, sour finish. Very well done.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Cloudy, murky yellow gold with a gigantic fizzy head that eventually wore off. Mild spice and yeast aroma with wheat and grain as well. Refreshing flavor with mild flavor that is not annoying. Perhaps, my favorite Saison.

Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a light hazy yellow, with a small white head that quickly fades into a disc on the surface. No appreciable lacing. Nose is faint citrus and yeast. Taste is citrus with a hint of pepper. Refreshing, but not one of Prairie’s best.
