The Windowsill got a little more sour today.

When I was a kid, I loved Super Lemons, Warheads, Sour Patch Kids… Just name a sour candy, and I was all about it. I think that’s why I have such an affinity for sour beers now that I am an adult of sorts. I just like that tingly feeling I get in my jaw when I taste sour things. The Prairie Weisse definitely gave me that lemony-sour trigger I seem to crave.

This is the second beer from Oklahoma’s Prairie Artisan Ales to grace my windowsill and, as with the BOMB!, Prairie did a really good job in its interpretation of an otherwise “normal” beer type. It’s light, refreshing and tingly, but well-balanced and not overwhelming. I think I still prefer the hoppy bitterness of an IPA, but if you’re into sour beers, and companies that really take pride in bringing a unique perspective to making quality brews, you should definitely try the Prairie Weisse, and really anything Prairie Artisan Ales puts out. If anything, pick up some of their beers just so you can take a gander at their cool label art.
