3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bierkoning (purchased a while ago though) at 8% ABV, no BB date, large sample, served in an Oersoep tulip. Initially clear golden color, big rocky white head. Aroma is fruity of hop, bit pineapple, citrus, also spicy saisonesque yeast, bit peppery, slight funky even. Soft bitter taste, slight marzipan like sweetness. Bit dry, flowery, crisp. Medium to high carbonation and thin body, but fitting to the style. Funky notes give that bit of extra. Maybe I left it a bit too long, so not the freshest example, but its still a very nice beer. Can match with the better Belgian stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap somewhere in SF a few weeks back. Forward barnyard malted nose with hints of tropical fruit beneath. Flavors are the same with a sweep of citrusy hops coming in mid-palate for a fairly thorough and welcomed takeover. Blend is nice. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Hazy golden, slight orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Leaves decent lace. Very nice nose. Citrusy hop, some of the peach and mango are easily found. Very cool. Surprising amount of mango in the flavor. Some saison-like yeast, mild spiciness. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice zest, kind of grassy. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty tasty zesty hoppy saison to sip on. Punchy & pungent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A creamy-smooth, frothy 1.5" white head settles to a sheet and thick ring with a few short, thick, angular peninsulas of lace over a hazed sunshine body
Bright earthy funk meets floral notes, pineapple, mango, peaches, and melon over a bold grassy base with peppery accents on a soft, smooth medium body with active carbonation introducing an elevated sense of white pepper on a drying bitter finish with subtle fruity sweetness and solid duration, rustic with solid intensity, complexity, and length, lightly tart
Another great label from Prairie, which accurately illustrates the characteristics of the brew it surrounded
1 Pint, .9oz capped bottle with smudged code, I believe this was bottled within the last two months, purchased from room temp shelf, served at 45° and warming into Orrefors Beer Taster
