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.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer. Smak och doft av äpple, jäst, hö, gräs, citrus, örter och kryddor. Syrlig, frisk, bra balans mellan smakerna. Mycket fin!

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer. En rustik, vieille saison med mycket brettkaraktär. Frisk, syrlig, funkig, örtig, kryddig och lätt fruktig i riktigt bra balans. Massor av ladugårdsdoft med citrusvibbar i doften plus lite ananas. Så mycket karaktär från jäststammarna och så gott.

procraste (179) - FRANCE - JUN 15, 2015
ça pue l’étable, ça a le goût de l’étable ( les fameuses Brettanomyces ... ) ... et en même temps, c’est vraiment bon et surprenant ! Un peu comme un bon fromage ou comme un beurre fermier bio de printemps lorsque le lait des vache est très riche. Je n’étais pas super fan des Saison; mais je crois que les temps changent. Du moins pour cet été .... !

Bottle; pours a cloudy straw color with a white head; nice aroma of yeast, citrus, some spice, with hints of wheat and funk; taste is bittersweet with citrus, yeast, and some spice; finish is dry bitter with some pepper notes; very nice, smooth saison

jercraigs (8494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
2015-06-02. Hazy straw yellow body with a modest white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly estery, sweetish wheat and Belgian yeast character. A bit Unibroue like? (Maybe?) Flavour is pleasant, interesting lightly yeasty wheat character up front, sweet middle, then finishes dry and lightly alcoholic. Light spice touches woven throughout. 7+ Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Dangerously drinkable. On tap at Beer Revolution, Edmonton.

Very strong white head, hazy gold. Sour hay, yeast and farmyard on the nose. Sour, definite notes of black pepper and sour fruit. Finishes dry and spicy. Wonderful.
