Prairie Moon pours a cloudy haylike yellow. After swirling the last half inch or so of the bottle and pouring into the weizen glass the yeast mixture turns the body a deeper golden as if falls. Solid amount of carbonation rises to the head. The body looks just like a witbier should but the head is somewhat disappointing. I tried to coax out a head with an aggressive pour but only got a half finger at it's peak and that quickly faded to a swirling.

It's funny but the first from the six pack that I drank had the aroma of bologna. After letting the beer warm to a more appropriate temperature the right kind of aromas come forward. Coriander, mild white pepper and sweet orange peel all show themselves over a twangy wheat base. Mild lemon as well. After warming this beer smells like a good wit should.

The entire flavor is based around twangy wheat. The spicing is very good, not at all overpowering like some other wits tasted in the past. Coriander comes around mid palate along with a sprinkling of white pepper and a couple drops of lemon juice. The sweet orange peel shows up on the finish with a juicy sweetness.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Actually velvety is more like it. Mildly tingly carbonation kick starts the tongue just enough.

Solid witbier thats made for hot summer days like today. An enjoyable treat that I could put away pretty easy.

Good brew from Lake Louie. Not my favorite style but a good example to enjoy on a day in the upper 80s.

A - Pours a fizzy dull light yellow colored body with some fast rising bubbles moving about. Starts with a one inch head, but what is left is a thin layer on the top made up of tight bubbles.

S - Lemon. Yeasty earthiness. Sort of grassy. A bit of wheat.

T - Very lemony, to the point of having a nice tart and sour bite to it. Is there brett at work in this beer? Yeasty flavors in the middle with some interesting earth notes. Comes back to this spritzy lemon flavor that starts the beer out.

M - Medium bodied. Smooth carbonation, but a touch overcarbonated.

D - This beer really snuck up on me. Wasn't expecting this distinct lemon sour taste. Very refreshing. I could see downing a ton of these during a hot summer day.
