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.

Great beer. Complex and a little heavy in the aftertaste, but lives long in the mouth. Taste it a warm summerday icecold!

thiesen (175) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller and Friends bottle shop. Sour from Brett, fresh hops. Light hazy yellow with a tiny bit of white head. A complex combination of bitter, acrid, sweet and spicy yeast. Strong complex saison with a lot of yeast, both in taste and on the bottom of the the bottle.

En kraftig og sammensat saison. Frisk og tung, sød og syrlig. På mange måder en dejlig øl!

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 8/21/13

Aroma: The aroma is has some fairly heavy spice, Belgian yeast, and some fruity notes
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a huge, gushing, fizzy white head and frothy lace
Flavor: It is spice-fronted, with some light funk, and the fruitiness playing a background role
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, and a dry, tingly finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid saison. The ridiculous amount of carbonation hurts the drinkability. The spice is definitely the predominant component of this one, and it could probably use a little more balance, but overall, it is a tasty beer.

Bottle at Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens. An unclear, yellow beer with an orange hue and a white head of moderate size. Fruity aroma with citrus peel and saison yeast. Orange. Peppery hints. The flavor pretty much the same, quite bitter, and quite dry, with a light funky hint. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Long citrusy finish with pale malts and a peppery hint. Finally a nice American saison. 130817

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Opens with a ton of force and a hell of a pop. Pours a pale gold with a big white head. The aroma has lemon, bread, crackers. Mildly tart and grassy.
