3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Thanks a lot Derek!
Cloudy pale yellow colour with a tiny white head.
Yeast and brett (sourness/tartness) in the aroma.
The flavour is also very much brett... itís a bit dominating. Smooth. Nice but maybe a bit one-dimensional. I was expecting more after having absolutely great brews from Prairie. Some spiciness with the yeast. But still the brett is dominating.

Cloudy yellow pour with a tight bubbled white head that lasts. Lots of wood and funk on the nose with some bright lemony notes. The same features play out on the palate with a light, spritzy body.

Bottle at the parentals with my dad. Pour is hazy lemon with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Big funky, cheesy, lemony, waxy, oaky, doughy, peppery, grassy, urine, soapy, and floral aroma. Taste is oaky, grassy, sour lemons, bitter fruit peel, doughy, funky, and urine with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really funky and citrusy stuff - solid saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 11/26/2013. Pours golden straw color, thin white head settles to a few hazy wisps on the surface. Aroma is quite geuze/lambic like, which is awesome, straw malts with pronounced earthy barnyard character, pear and apple with mildly tart lemon background, touch of pineapple, with slight vanilla and oak in the finish. Taste is a bit cleaner, tropical brett notes, white fruit, lemon, soured malts, dry woody finish. Light body, drinks easy. Quite nice.

Havenít meet a saison I just didnít really like lately and this is not an exception. Lovely tart saison this one. Shared with Atlanta Beer Fantasty Football Crew. Hazed golden pour with nice head. Aroma is nice barnyard with some oak and a bit fruity. Taste is similar and with more of a lightly, lingering tartness. Just lovely.
