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.

Marheb (1750) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Une saison hyper tropicale assaillie de levures insistantes. La dégustation s’intensifie, se corse au fur et à mesure, chaque gorgée est tributaire de la quantité de levures ingurgitées. C’est principalement un jus machable d’ananas/mangue poivré avec des courants passagers d’épices diverses.

AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Blonde paille et voilée, ayant une mousse typique, qui persiste. Une dentelle pas remarquable. Un nez rustique, champêtre, où l’on retrouve de la levure sauvage, du zeste de citron, et de la menthe, entre autres. Le goût est pareil aux arômes, avec des pointes poivrées, amères et sèches. Les papilles sont amplement sollicitées, même énormément, comme si ça nous révélait que nos capteurs sont efficaces, ils ne sont pas obstrués. (824-130913)

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2013
draught@Erzbierschof - cloudy orange beer with a persistent white foam; nice lace; aroma of barnyard, peaches, mango and citrus; a good malt backbone, pretty assertive and tasty; quite sweet and with a late brett-sourness; low carbonation, light chewy and sticky aftertaste of ripe fruits; residual sugars and more notes of hay

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
Tap at Delirium Hoppy Loft. Nose of lemon, yogurt, very funky lactic character, citrus. Pale gold, cloudy, with lace. Very lactic flavor, vanilla, cream, yogurt, with lemon, grass, leather. Somewhat like a lemonade lassi. Very bitter, thought. Good, but too much milk. got hard to drink.

superspak (2206) - Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 2-3 finger foamy and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, clove, pepper, hay, grass, white wine, wheat, light vinegar, funk, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast notes with funk; and great strength. Taste of lemon, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, pepper, clove, hay, grass, white wine, wheat, light vinegar, funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, light fruits, clove, pepper, hay, grass, wheat, white wine, funk ,and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, hop, and brett flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible saison style! All around fantastic balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, hop, and brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A near world class offering in my opinion.

degbert (1005) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. INCOMING!!! Took the cage off, looked down, and watched the cork blow itself across my kitchen. It gushed for a good ten minutes after. This is not good. That said...nose is sweet with some brett and phenolic notes, as well as spicy wine notes. Pours a hazy gold with a huge head. Flavor is typical saison -- some peppery and tropical fruit going on. Finish is a little saccharine. It’s all right, but it’s not worth the explosion.

Scopey (5542) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to Matteo at the Pre-Zwanze. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, apricot, peach yoghurt, funky, earth and wood. The taste is fresh orange, nectarine, apricot, sherbet, wood, creamy, hay and floral with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and high, prickly carbonation. Tasty and well-balanced.
