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.

Damico (2787) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours cloudy golden orange with a creamy white head. Aroma and flavor both bring the divine sweet Bretty yeast mixed with the other two yeasts that dominate the flavor. The Belgian candi sugar shines through in a smooth way helping enhance the yeast. The Saaz hops are tame rounding out everything so well on a perfectly balanced body.

Clear golden. Big soapy white head, very nice. Slightly creamy, nice fruity yeast. Bananas as peach. Very well balanced. Another excellent beer from Prairie.

Fritz123 (1266) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft pour at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Fl. Snifter. Pours a hazy yellow with a one finger white head. Head gone in about 120 seconds but solid lacing. Aroma of brett, farm funk, citrus, white pepper and bread. The taste is similar with the brett and wine yeasts playing well with the pilsner malts. Well balanced, slightly dry finish. Not sour, but that good farmhouse saison. Light body, solid carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. I could drink this all day.

bursprak (979) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
7% ABV. Shared 22 oz bottle. Pours really cloudy/hazy light golden with a fairly large head. On the nose I get some classic saison yeast, some wheat and citrus notes. Taste is again a bit yeast with orange peel and bread crumbs.

Defreni (2754) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
Fad: Lysegul let diset øl med lækkert skumhoved. God duft med en anelse brett. Frisk zesty smag med en smule brett, god mundfylde. Lækker øl.

rosenbergh (7890) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
750 ml bottle. 7%. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Lively cloudy golden colour with a big fluffy white head. Spices, yeast, hay, malt, mild sourness and mild hops in a wonderful aroma. The flavour is very nice. There’s yeast, mild spices, moderate hoppy bitterness, mild alcohol, mild medicine notes, malt and leather. Very tasty. A real treat.

Nice fruity floral aroma. Mostly tropical fruit. Pineapple and ripe pear. Flavor follows aroma. Brett not that apparent but maybe contributes to the pineapple. Not horse-blankety at all. Love it. Great saison. Cloudy in the glass.

Art (2058) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle thanks to Soonerchamps. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a full white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, Brett, black pepper. Taste is mostly dry with a slight bitter bite. Extremely effervescent carbonation. Burps taste like piña coladas.

ajnepple (2941) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2014
500 ml bottle ($10) from the Argonaut into my stemmed Funkwerks glass. Orange and pretty hazy with a nice-sized white head, average longevity, light lacing. Nice, fresh, tart aroma of brettanomyces, earthy/spicy hops, white wine, barnyard, black pepper, citrus/tropical fruits, toasted malts, herbs and Belgian nuances. Similar flavor, earthy, zesty, yeasty, peppery, lightly tart, funky, light sweetness, and mild bitterness. The alcohol is just barely noticeable. Medium body with a nice feel, crisp carbonation and a lingering, dry, somewhat bitter finish. Refreshing and nicely done, a bit pricey for a pint, though.

achtungpv (226) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Silky mouth feel with a tight thin head and golden body. High alcohol content and taste hides the mild grassy notes and hops.
