3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Funky yeast, lemon grass and piney hops... this oneís all over the map. Golden yellow, plenty of fizz. Tastes outright sour, followed by blunt bitter. Body is not crisp, rather it is an initial flush, and then a slow dry out. This is an extreme saison, with element of sour wheat ales.

Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head. Aroma of spicy saison notes, tropical fruits, pepper and citrusy. Flavor of black pepper, mango, pineapple, mixed citrus and bready. Extremely crisp and dry. One of my favorite saisons.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy gold with big rocky white head. Aroma is big funk, citrus, lemon grassy notes with that hint of lime. Slightly sweet bready malt aroma coming through. Nice carbonation pop initially, taste is the aroma but very muted. It starts and then falls flat. Nice dry finish. Finishes clean. Light mouth feel. Nice lacing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 0.355l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) tasting. This one has a nice big bubbled just off white head on top of a blurry kinda golden body. It has an amazing nose this. Been longing for a saison for some time now, and this is just spot on. Itís get brett, fresh hops itís grassy with peachy traces. The taste is all the same as the nose with a clear bretty touch over it. Light spicy-yeasty and grassy. Something I would not mind revisiting again and again! 15.06.2013

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 11/5/13
Aroma: This one has a nice, funky nose, with lots of spice, and some fruity notes
Appearance: This one pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a frothy white head and plus lace
Flavor: The taste is spicy and funky like the nose, with some mild citrus notes as well
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a fairly clean, tingly feel, and a dry, spicy finish
I thought this was another really good offering from Prairie. Good stuff. I could easily see drinking a lot of this one.
