3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeast funk hits you right out of the bottle. Citrusy, barnyard, lacto aroma. A slight tartness like a not-quite-sour, sour. A very interesting, complex saison. I would never guess this came from Oklahoma.
Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 750 mL bottle, 2013 vintage. The pour is a dark golden orange color with a thick ivory colored head that slowly recedes with a good bit of lace behind it. The aroma is full of brett from front to back. There is a light tartness about it, a touch of spiciness, and a light oaky fruitiness. The flavor is a little more white-wine based with a strong brett and a decent barnyard funkiness carrying it. There is a little more fruit and a decent oakiness. The mouth feel is light and clean with a brighter carbonation and a strong funky brett finish. There is a light tartness that I enjoy, but it’s just a touch too funky. Solid offering. 8 4 8 4 16 ebone1988 (1925) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2017

750ml corked bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours a hazy, glowing straw color with a small head that dissipates almost immediately. Lots of fruit in the nose, muscat, pear blossoms alongside oak and chardonnay yeast. Soft carbonation and quite well-rounded on the palate. More muscat and wine-notes come out as it warms then an undertone of tropical fruit: lychee, pineapple and tangerine. Light bitterness on the finish with some tropical fruit skin. Very good 4 years later, although almost all carbonation has seemingly vanished. davidezdonz (500) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - SEP 30, 2016
A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with oddly no bottled on date visible. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a cloudy golden colour with a big three finger white head that dissipated quickly but settled to a thin cap and leaves nice lacing. Aromas of strong earthy musty farmhouse funk and damp wood, citrus lemon and orange as well as tropical apricot. Tastes tart, lightly sour, light funk, lemon, honey, apple peel, pepper spice and a touch of alcohol creeping through. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was quite good but there was a distinct lack of oak barrel notes that I had expected. On top of that, it was a little disappointing that a bit of alcohol creeped out into the taste.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a white head and aroma of brett and spices. Taste is of lemon zest, brett, funk, spices, citrus, and hops into the finish. jjgmd (2162) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2016

Un faux air de muscadet acide ( de jeunes raisins un peu verts ??? ) C’est très bien passé avec les huîtres de ce dimanche ... Plus sur le citron en se réchauffant. chouette comme souvent avec Prairie. AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2015
750 ml Bottle (I forget who traded me this) thanks! Consumed at cellar temperature. Hazy straw color with thin bubbles of head. Aroma of Yeast, barnyard funky hints, rustic grain and funky oak.
The brew has a pretty good malt balance that is overtaken by some mild sourness and barnyard notes. Very mild citrus through the center of the sip. The oak is noticeable in the finish and turns the texture dry. I wish I had opened this sooner as it has sat and I lost track of it. That being said, it’s still pretty enjoyable. Maybe the oak is starting to get a bit powerful. I sure it was milder months ago....
