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.

JK (5659) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled. Foam started to gush as soon as i opened the beer, and an ordinary pour resulted in a huge head. Cloudy orange color, and tons of carbonation. Lots of brett, which dominates the flavor and aroma making this very dry. Some grassy flavor, dry hops, but I didn’t pick up saaz specifically. Some barnyard quality; and the yeast is prominent.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2015
Surprise! It’s a bit of a gusher. Dirty dark yellow with good white foamy head. Dusty malt and light Brett scent. Soft foamy palate. Bit of peppery kick at the end with a pinch of fruit. A bit heavy handed without the magic I expect from best of style. A bit mellony with pepper notes.

gyllenbock (7557) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle, bought from Bierkompass in March 2014. Hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, brett, some light pepper and citrus. Similar taste. A bit sweet and with a bitter finish. A descent one.

@ Eddan 15-2-14: små belgiska toner. En hel del brett fast ganska lätt öl men liten kryddörter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

erickok (5274) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Citric, pine apple, crisp, yellow sugar, hay. Really nice, bit eccentric. Very balanced between bitterness, sweet and sours. Oozes quality. Great drink, especially in a small sipping quantity. (2 125ml glass at Brewberry Bar)

jc1762 (643) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Poured into a teku showing an extremely light straw yellow with a a finger and a half of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of brett and funky barnyard aromas. Hints of lemon juice and pineapple also appear. The palate is medium bodied and highly carbonated. Flavors of brett but very little tartness. The barnyard flavors permeate the entire beer. Very subtle flavors of pineapple begin to appear until a light to moderate bitterness interrupts. This bitterness and the barnyard flavors seem to prevent realizing any of the beer’s fruit flavors.

piscator34 (2316) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On draft. Hazy pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of coriander, cream of wheat breakfast cereal and white pepper. More wheat and lemony coriander notes in the mouth, backed by a more vague spicy Belgian yeast note and a bit of bubblegum. Heavy wit beer like body, but with enough sharp spice notes to balance things out. Still not as dry as I typically like my saisons, but still quite good overall.

4cl sample at Mikkeller Bangkok beer week. No head. No carbonation. Hazy golden pour. Easy drinking saison. well done.
