3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to chalice. Murky orange-gold with minimal, mostly dissipating head. Relaxed, pleasant nose with hints of citrus. Light body and carbonation. Mild taste with some orange notes and a little hoppy bitterness. Slightly medicinal finish with some subtle black pepper. Not nearly as aggressive as many Saisons, I really like this laid-back interpretation. Welcome, Prairie.

Now...this, this is what I’m talking about. Bright funk in nose and body solidly supported and slightly outdone by the funky citric hop. Oh yeah! I could easily drink this all day long. Now how to do that without having to re-mortgage the house......

Nice nose farmhouse nose with lime. Taste is pretty straightforward to style. Dry hopping privided a nice bright character to the beer. Preferred to keep the yeast out as it muddied up the whole dry hop thing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh. Golden yellow pour with a frothy off-white head. Clean aroma of soap, light citrus peel, and straw. Taste features orange zest, lemon, and mild spicy hops. Unmistakably a saison but the hops mask the bitterness I sometimes associate with the style. A nicely done and very approachable beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes, citrus hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with citrus hops and weird farmhouse yeast. Surprisingly unsophisticated for a Prairie beer. Not very convincing - it’s okay.

Not a huge fan of season beers hence the low score. Pretty sour taste and dries out my mouth. Cloudy yellow like lemonade. Drinkable, but not a huge fan. (K)

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Prairie Standard may be a near perfect Saison. Bright yellow pour with a fizzy head which seems to reconstitute as you drink it. Nice aroma of lemony hops and just a touch of funk. Mouth feel is initially effervescent followed by balanced taste of lemon, hops and a touch of funkiness with a bit of peppery on the back end. Standard is a true joy to drink with lots of complexity.
