A softly hazed sunny yellow body presents a few streamers of small bubbles traveling towards a delicate frothy white one inch head which quickly dissipates leaving a short peninsula and a few spots of lace

Clean lemony citrus shines over sweet pineapple notes with earthy characteristics of damp hay trailing in on a light, smooth, mildly carbonated body, slightly tart, a touch of creamy froth finishing out, lemon meringue pie comes to mind, residuals of smooth pepper, light lemon zest, and a hint of herbal spice drying the palate, very pleasant with well orchestrated components
16.9oz bottle at 45º and warming into Stölzle spritzer goblet
Young bottle pours a slightly hazy gold yellow with frothy white fizz. The aroma is musty malts, some wheat noticeable, feint mustard Belgian funk. The flavor is a nice Smith grainy Belgian golden strong ale with a light musty earthy grain complimented by a very smooth near creamy body and carbonation. There is a pepper/wheat spice that is in the front with a drying apricot white wine like touch to the Belgian funk and lasting grain. There are quite a bit off hops adding a freshness and depth, light sweet lemon with some dried grassy and floral tones. For a somewhat modest beer this is done very well. Thank you prairie ales, everything you’ve done is solid. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Tipples. Had this right after Eliza5beth. Pours clear golden with a big fluffy head. Aroma of Bretty yeast funk, pilsner malts, some tartness, lemon rinds, musty pepperyness. Flavor is Brett funk up front, a super interesting taste of a mouthful of flower petals and peat, Chardonnay, lots going on here and not like anything I have tried before. Light bodied with high carbonation. Very interesting brew and I really can’t put my finger on the strange flavors in the mid palate of this one. Definitely worth trying. conway (2210) - - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. Extremely hazy gold with a thick white head. Almost looks more like cider. Aroma is saison yeast, apricot and rubber. Taste adds light pineapple notes, pepper and some citrus. Clean, dry and fizzy palate. Good. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Hazy deep golden pour with a large rocky white head. Spicy yeast aroma, citrusy hops, hay, sourdough, white pepper, spicy flavor with funkiness with touches of pears. Spicy flavor with coriander seeds, pears, sourdough yeast funk and a healthy dose of citrus. Fuller bodied than most saisons with lively carbonation. Very solid.

Nice citrus odor. Clean and crisp on the palate. Can definitely tell it was fermented with brettanomyces. Delightful saison. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2014
A murky pale apricot color with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma of bubble gum and pineapple with some white pepper and mild funk. Taste follows nose with pineapple and mild bubble gum with coriander and clove. Some wheat flavor and hints of the brettanomyces with hints of funkiness. Aftertaste of white pepper spiciness. Finishes dry with lingering spiciness. Mouthfeel is very creamy with a medium full body and moderate carbonation. Fantastic beer that is full of flavor and very drinkable. Really like the balance of all the flavors.
