3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Wino’s Depot / Bowling Green KY --- Clear straw amber color with a huge bubbly white head that slowly shrinks to a heavy head cover, thick waves of lace. Taste is wheaty malt that grows significantly in the palate, adding fresh fruit that quickly turns to the bitter side in a dwindling finish. A fresh, spritzy brew that doesn’t seem like a Belgian Ale, but, it works anyway on its own terms.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy tannish color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is fresh and citrusy with just a little bit of the Belgian yeast to it. Taste is light and fresh and slightly bitter. Super tasty and nice to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Shared with Dani and Brian. Poured into small snifters...yellow gold with some haze and a big head. Good lacing. Aroma is fruity with mango and apricots, fresh pine hoppiness, grass, cereal. The taste is similar with a nice almost sweet fruitiness coupled with a pine hoppiness. Well balanced. Overall a very light body, refreshing to drink. Slight bitter finish. Moderate carb. Nice beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very light, hop aroma drifts from the mouth of the bottle. This is followed by a cloudy, faded, honey-lemon liquid topped with a soap-bubbly white head that disintegrates within minutes, leaving no lacing at all. The flavor, also quite lemony, exhibits a light fruitiness that is reminiscent of a Belgian style. The flavor is pleasant, but not exciting and doesn’t stand out at all. The longer this sits, the flatter and more tasteless it becomes and only adding a new drop from a cold bottle brings it back to life. I certainly am not leaving it for hours here, but just five minutes seems to take the life right out of the brew, leaving no body or texture.
This is nice on the palate at first, but letting it sit is not an option for enjoyment. This is a beer you’ll need to drink quickly and cold, so don’t let this breathe!
As I said earlier, this isn’t too bad when cold and fresh, but still not an experience I’ll look for for in the future.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Gainesville World of Beer. Pours cloudy yellow with a creamy white one finger head into my tulip. Aroma of big funky saison yeast, grassy hops, some pine, very sweet honey notes, and some other fruits in there. Flavor follows with very sweet fruits from the hops, a bit of zesty citrus peel bite, grass, honey. Mouthfeel is thicker than expected, but lightened up by the high carbonation. Overall this was very nice, but not what I had expected going in. Definitely a good beer, but easily one of my least favorite Prairie saisons out there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at House of Brews. Cloudy amber pour witha frothy white head. Tropical fruits and citrus aroma with a good dose of maltiness and yeast. Flavor is similar and kind of one dimensional. Zesty body and lively carbonation. Not bad, maybe better out of the bottle?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. has some citrus on the nose. Very hop forward on the tongue which overpowers the funkiness you expect from the saison. finishes clean. tasty but adding a shitload of hops to goose a style seems really fucking obvious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is the first hop focused beer I have had from Prairie so here goes. Beer pours cloudy golden color with a prodigious egg white head. Aroma is nice with significant grassy, floral/herbal notes. Taste is bitter. Body is medium and texture is oily. An enjoyable hoppy beer.
