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.

Ysok02 (895) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2016
Robe blonde trouble, mousse peu abondante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes fruitées, des agrumes, une pointe d’ananas et de houblon frais sur un fond de gingembre confit. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, élégante, tout en finesse, fine acidité et note d’agrumes en finale. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une saison. Un bière de plaisir et de soif.

Pours straw like golden color, haze, with stable white foamy head. Visually high carbonation. Aroma: champagne like aroma, with notes of grape, wine vinegar, hints of spicy and florals (saaz hops). Flavor: moderate malt flavor, with noticable wheat malt (banana like esters), supported with spicy and floral notes of hops and peppers. Taste is firstly malty sweet, suddenly become tart, sour, with champagne like character, and with very dry, slightly bittersweet, sour, peppery finish. Dryness lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is high. Alcohol warmth is surprisingly noticable and higher as I suspected.

Handypaul (422) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. . Pours pale yellow with unfiltered suspended sediment and a wholly lasting white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of Brett and Coriander. Flavor follows nose along with a bit of alcohol. Medium body, fizzy carbo at the start but to appreciate the brew it needs to sit and let some of the carbonation subside. Lots of alcohol in the finish.

500 ml bottle pours a golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of spice, yeast, grass. Light bodied but complex, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
