4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is my first beer from Prairie, and hopefully won’t be the last. Hazy golden amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is tart and slightly grainy. Lemon pith, lemongrass, lime leaf, honey. Flavor is lightly acidic up front, lending a tart, bright character. Lemon and lime, with lightly floral hops. Toast and grass. I wouldn’t call it "funk" but there’s definitely yeast character to it that’s almost funky. Reminds me of stuff like Jolly Pumpkin or Fantome with that bright, expressive, fresh tart Belgian character. I could probably find notes of just about any citrus fruit I looked for. Just that right balance where the hops are clearly bringing out and highlighting the natural fruity notes of the saison without just tasting like a beer with a bunch of hops dumped in it. Hits that spot that makes your mouth water and crave sip after sip. Honestly a bit thick and heavy for a hot summer day, but great with a meal of fish. Carbonation is on the light side, but I probably wouldn’t want to up it for fear that it would take away from the way that the acidity lingers on the tongue.

pours hazy pale golden with a tall creamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. floral citrus, fruity berries and peaches, very yeasty - spicy dust, bitter greens, fresh cut grass, crushable bretts. lively carbonation, light body - oily; assertive and drying spicy-grassy-herbal finish. very nice hoppy belgian ale - a lot better than belgian offerings that is. fresh bottle yet a tad muted, but oh so enjoyable!

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick fluffy white head that has great retention and left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is quite strong with this beer. I pick up orange peel, citrus, fruity, Belgian yeast, and quite floral as well. The taste is citrusy, orange peel, Belgian yeast, and some floral hop bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015 bottle. A hazy straw color with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is pine and flowers with some ripe mango and a little lemon underneath. Taste is a little briny with straw and definite mango and tangerine. Some peppery spice and just a mild pine bitterness at the end. Leaves a little aspirin taste and feel on the tongue. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Finishes fairly dry and a little chalky.

Bue en bouteille de 66cl, couleur blonde avec reflets ambrées, grosse mousse et effervescence moyenne, une attaque au nez très forte sur l’ananas. Très annanas en bouche aussi, puis fruit exotique type goyave. Continuité sur l’amertume un peu trop marqué sur le gain en fin de bouche.
