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.

Bottle shared at the Pre-Zwanze tasting - London. Many thanks to Matteo. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a modest, foamy white head. The aroma has lots of fresh brett, barnyard, some tangy lemon. Light to medium sweet flavor with more brett, poo, faint acidity, lemon merengue. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, more brett, lightly tangy lemon, mild doughy pale malts. Solid.

hirigalzkar (2314) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 Bottle. Pours golden with a big white head. Lovely flowery and sweet aroma with notes of honey, citrus and white pepper. Smells a lot like that chewing gum thing in the regular Fantome Saison. Enormously flowery taste with a distinct tart and peppery finish. The honey notes are lurking in the background. Some alcohol notes in the aftertaste. Big bodied, yet not a sipper. "True to style" (meaning not as overhopped as some american saisons tends to be).

Bottle. Pours golden with a big white head. Sweet aroma, floral. Taste of pepper, sweet and tartness like strawberries. Rather heavy.

monk191 (983) - California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
A very nice fruity saison. Pours an ugly yellow with a thin white head. Smells like lemon and pine. Taste has a lot of lemon, and some fruity background. Not very dry like many Saisons. Paired with a Seared Ahi Tuna, Mango and Cucumber salad, a little more earthy tones are brought out. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
