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.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Opaque yellow with a pillowy white head. Enticing aromas of spicy yeast esters. Lively carbonation; effervescent; light, bright and clean. Zinger notes of lemon, flowers, spices, pepper and herbs. Just the right amount of yeast funkiness to give it depth. Aftertaste is dry and moderately bitter. Tremendously delicious and refreshing saison.

lamas (1426) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 1, 2015
500mL bottle. A hazy old gold pour with a massively thick and fizzy off-white head. The yeasty, slightly funky aroma features lots of zesty citrus rinds, lemon juice, oranges, pears, candi sugar, pepper, coriander, cheese, dried apricots, and old pineapples - complex to say the least. Goes down thin to medium-bodied and bubbly. Pears and candi sugar upfront in the taste. A yeasty, sharp cheesy Brett middle. Zesty citrus rinds, oranges, and lemons at the end. Funky with some pepper, vinous notes, and just a touch of warming alcohol the whole way through. Quality.

Af krana á Skúla. Klukkan fer að síga í bjór hjá öðrum borgarbúum en hér eru þrjú borð þéttsetin og virðast ætla að halda því áfram. Portishead er hipp. Þessi bjór er líka hipp. Hann er hvass!
