Just a couple of posts ago I was talking about dark colored saisons and how I had not had many of them. I bought this beer without knowing what style it was and didn’t realize until I poured it that it was another dark saison. Been really impressed with Prairie since they came to Maine. I also tried several of their beers at Hill Farmstead’s Festival of Farmhouse Ales.
This one pours almost pitch black color with a huge biscuity tan head. Aroma has an odd mix of citrus hops, roasted malts and funk. Taste is similar with the only addition being a bit of chocolate. Overall the mix of hops, funk and roasted malts simply do not work for me. No question this is a nice beer but not a style that I enjoy.
