Birra is a light, sessionable farmhouse ale. It is crisp with notes of black pepper and orange and goes perfectly with food.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
One of Prairie’s saisons brewed some place else. Clear, deep ’old gold’ colour with calm sparkling and irregular but dense, off-white, somewhat thin head but retaining well on the edges and in the form of small ’islands’ floating on the surface. Becomes a misty ochre with deposit. Pleasurable aroma of starfruit, melon, bubblegum, lemon zest, honey, young cheese, wild flowers, buttermilk, caramel, cider, bread crust, freshly cut grass, canned apricot, pineapple, sweet dessert wine. Nicely fruity onset, estery but still remaining quite ’clean’, sweetish with hints of sweet grapes, watermelon, unripe peach and green banana, soft carbo, very light salty touch for a brief moment, smooth, supple and lean body of caramelly malt sweetishness, spicy yeasty notes here and there and especially in the finish, where they match perfectly with a peppery, leafy hop bitterness, not harsh but gently and gradually drying and bittering the palate while juicy and fruity maltiness go down into the throat. Well rounded and balanced little saison, quenching at 4.5% ABV like the style was originally intended, but perhaps a bit too clean in comparison with most (traditional) Belgian saisons from the Hainaut province. Still, you can feel that this is carefully conceived and executed, and Prairie has already proven its feeling for farmhouse ales in previous products I tasted from them.

Maakun (1870) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Murky pale straw with big fizzy head that leaves a nice film. Light spicy yeast, some dough (I get some bread yeast besides the spicy yeast too), slight milk, nuts, straw, lemon. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodi9ed with quite some fizzy carbonation. Nice drinkable stuff, though it has some notes of milky dough with bread yeast that are closer to a witbier and don’t work too well for me here.

tmrmwel (1368) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow, with a big creamy head. Aroma is yeast with notes of wood and pepper, kandi and malty notes of doughy bread, as well as some farmyardy notes of grass, berries and earth. Medium to full body, with lively carbonation. Flavour is peppery yeast, with notes of wood and sugar, sweet malty notes of bread, cereals and honey, as well as some perfumey and rustic earthy notes. Quite sweet finish, and a tad too sweet to be tremendously quaffable. Still enjoyable.

skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2015
12oz. Is what it is - Prairie’s version of a 6er beer - and it’s dank. Full on sessionable saison here. Grainy, slight hay, hints of spice. Excellent for what it is.

dlihcsnatas (471) - Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Dirty golden beer with fast falling head leaving just a thin head on top. Pretty nasty looking clusters of something resembling snot in there plus all the yeast bits floating about. Smell is moldy with some herbs. Taste is mild citrus, bread, and something that I wouldn’t call black pepper but maybe a green pepper or other vegitable. Not really that tasty and beginning to wonder if this was a bad bottle.
