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.

Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a light hazy yellow, with a small white head that quickly fades into a disc on the surface. No appreciable lacing. Nose is faint citrus and yeast. Taste is citrus with a hint of pepper. Refreshing, but not one of Prairie’s best.

Bottle: Huge, bright white foam and a tiny bit of cloudy lemon yellow on initial pour......wait, wait...wait.. Strong lemon, yeast aroma. Tart, lemon, white pepper...dry... Definitely a note of barnyard and dust. Very crisp and sharp.

kappldav123 (5336) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Light yellow in the glass, huge head. Mild fruity aroma with salty hints. Starts mild, malty, fruity and a bit moldy, not too intense. Finish more spicy. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

maxwelldeux (4081) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a cloudy orange-tan color. Nose is sour and funk with some good farm and hay elements to it. Taste is slightly sour with a lot of farmhouse notes and a lot of earthiness. Feels light and smooth, actually.

maneliquor (3391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours hazy golden with a thick white cap on top which sits for the duration. Nose has a healthy dose of bretty funk in there with loads of lemon curd, musk and bright citric zest. Taste is very lemon focused with dry musk, slightly earthy, very brett forward and curdled citrus. Really tasty and dry. Cracker

Muggus69 (1395) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2014
500mL bottle BB 13215? Presents a big persistent fluffy white head atop a lively, somewhat hazy straw yellow body. Decent intensity of aroma, very typical Saison characters; white pepper & clove phenolics, cut hay, floral herbal hops, cereally malts, light fruitiness & a touch of barnyard/vinegar as it warms. Lively but finely beaded carbonation, body is dry, seemingly light, deceptively so. Plenty to enjoy on the palate - lemon peel, husky cereals, hay, cut grass, apricot, pepper, white vinegar, bit of soft cheese character in there too. Finishes dry, decent bitterness, lingering spice & grassiness. Excellent example of the style, well made, good stuff.
