COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prairie Ale is our classic saison. We brew this beer with pilsner malt, wheat malt, flaked wheat, and cane sugar. A healthy dose of saaz hops are used to add a spicy element to the beer. Prairie Ale is fermented with a mix of ale yeast, wine yeast, and brettanomyces. Notes of black pepper and pineapple can be found in this beer.

Af krana á Skúla. Klukkan fer að síga í bjór hjá öðrum borgarbúum en hér eru þrjú borð þéttsetin og virðast ætla að halda því áfram. Portishead er hipp. Þessi bjór er líka hipp. Hann er hvass!

nimbleprop (5290) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 8, 2015
750ml bottle I’d had in the cellar for about 6 months or so. Pours a very hazy gold with lots of frothy, white head. Nose has a lot of white white character, white grape, grassy, straw, dusty, some mild tropical fruit, some citrus peel, some yeast. Flavor follows right along, grassy, straw, citrus zest, yeast, some white flour, some buttery oak, white grape. Creamy, refreshing finish. Very nice. Drinks MUCH easier than 8.2%.

patricks110 (1812) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
A great saison. Pours a bright golden orange colour and a hazy, clouded body. Atop is a bright white head, effervescent bubbles and a ton of carbonation. The aroma is fresh and fruity with light banana and citrus fruits. Toasted wheat malts with light honey and caramel notes. A subtle spice blend with a bit of coriander and cracked black pepper. Bretty and musty with a lighter farmhouse essence. A nice, well balanced and crisp brew with a mild hop and nice saison yeast notes. Overall,a great saison.

Theydon_Bois (10363) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Keg at the CP&K, Pimlicoco, 29/12/14. Hazed golden blonde with a decent white covering that retains well. Nose is tarte apricot, on the turn melon, pineapple chunks, funk, light straw. Taste comprises pear juice, apricot jam, farmyard, light spice, funky, tangy orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent tangy saison, alcohol well integrated but you know there’s a lick or two in the mix!

rangerred (970) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2015
500ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a very full and fluffy two finger white head. Outstanding head retention but the lacing is somewhat lacking. Aroma is very spicy and peppery mixed with lemon peel and coriander. Some nice Brett funk going on too. Very complex and enjoyable. The flavor is not quite as bold as the aroma but still hits the mark for the style. Coriander and lemon with the barnyard notes more restrained. Nice peppery dryness throughout and the alcohol is absolutely nowhere to be found. This beer is extremely drinkable. Overall, a very nice Saison and interesting for a style that seems hard to perfect. The Brett adds a nice twist and really works well in this beer.
