4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a big pillowy white head that recedes very slowly to a soapy cap. Lacing is delicate and sticky.
Bright citrusy nose with lemon zest and some white pepper. There is also plenty of earthy notes with the Brett beginning to show, but just starting to emerge.
The taste is excellent and has the same general feel with some lemon grass and spicy Belgian yeast. There is a peppery spice note that leaves a bit of zing on the palate after each sip.
Mouthfeel is dry and clean with some bitterness in the finish. The Brett leaves some earthiness on the palate as well. A little funky.
This is a great saison from an up and coming brewery. I look forward to more from Prairie.

Poured from a bottle, big white head, wonderful gold color. Aroma of fruits, spices, that funky saison smell. As with other saisons of this caliber, there is good carbonation. Taste is tarty, sour, and very dry. A really good saison.

Fra fat på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: dette ser ut til å bli kvelden for de gode fatøl! Her finner jeg en interessant mix av pepper og citrus i både aroma og smak (kanskje et godt øl til fårikål?). Fint karbonert. Lang ettersmak, en virkelig god og pepperfrisk øl med pikant syre.
