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.

The beer is extremely hazy and straw yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma offers lemons, hay, grass, floral hops, citrus. Lots of citrus in the flavor. Delicious. Mild funk with orange rind, floral hops, and a slight herbal note. Medium bodied, complex; and easy drinking. Really tasty.

Gription79 (2247) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Poured with a lot of head from a 750ml bottle. The aroma was sulfury white wine as I poured. After the head settled I got notes of peppery, apple/pear skins, funky Brett yeasty, earthy. The flavor is bready, dusty, spicy phenolics, slightly citrus note on the back end. Solid saison, rustic and funky.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2014
750ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Clear, a whack of lemon. Hazy, mellower. Bright strawy orange, initially large head, disappears quickly. Acidity in the mouth quite high. Hazy, more dishcleaner lemon, clear more tart peel lemon. Carbonation quite high. Fairly watery, but does cover 8.2% rather well. Does have the saisony lightness, for which respect.
