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.

Blasting cherry pie Brett aroma as soon as you pop the cap. Also the beer comes blasting out as well as this is massively carbed. Huge pillowy lacy head. Nice golden color. Big cherry aroma from the glass with some sweet fruit as well. The horsey earthy Brett flavor dominates along with some peppery notes. Hints of tropical fruit come out more as it warms. Love Brett, love this beer.

mkel07 (4037) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at Scratch Bar 090814. Possibly the best Saison I have had. Soft white head covers a well carbonated golden amber beer. The flavour is full on and fills the mouth with tropical fruit, lingering long in the mouth well after the beer is gone.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Bomber to glass. Very interesting beer and probably best saison I have had? Barnyard, hay, slight citrus, and pepper. Huge white foamy head. Taste is similar to aroma with some light tartness. Nice brew

500 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with an inch and a half white head. Both the head retention and lacing are good. The brew smells like yeast, hay, citrus (mostly lemon), pear, bready malt, and peppery spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís the addition of some bubblegum, minerals, white grapes, and some brett. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís smooth and itís well carbonated. Itís a good, lightly tart saison. Certainly worth trying if youíve never had it before, itís a good brew.

500ml bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out a hazy pale straw topped with a small head. Nose is funk barnyard horse blanket and some spice. Taste is as the nose with the barnyard and some citrus notes.

Wow! Well I think Iíve discovered one of my new favorite breweries! Seriously...Iíve bought 4 items from Prairie and this is the first one Iím drinking...a hint of butter and barnyard straw on the nose. Oh so light and tasty. Vaporizes on the palate almost. Pepper up front mixed with straw and a hint of dirt...buttery brett pineapple in the middle...the faint funk towards the back...and 30 seconds later a sour mash flavor. Brilliant work here. Brilliant...

Bottle thanks to Casey. Pours a cloudy yellow with large white frothy head that leaves good sticky lacing. The aroma is strong yeast, funk, brett. Medium mouthfeel with nice wheat, brett, oak, and light dry finish. Very good.
