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.

1/7/14. 500mL (ish) bottle from John’s Grocery. Thanks, pepsican! Hazed golden orange pour with a super nice fluffy khaki head that sticks around forever and laces like a champ. Nice aroma, mild funk, plenty of fruit, citrus (tangerine) and tropical (pineapple) with a bit of spice, yeastiness, and bready maltiness. Nice flavor, lightly tart, just enough, enormously refreshing, mild brett funk, lots of fruitiness, just enough pale malts to hold it together. Could crush all day and all night.

MrHangover (2147) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a hazy blonde beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is peppery, funky and fruity. Like your average saison. Flavor is quite sweet, fruity and has a slight bitter, yeasty aftertouch. Short aftertaste, high levels of carbonation. Quite an ok saison.

worldbeertaste (1551) - AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2014
Hazy amber with a white thin, frothy, lacy, lasting head. Smells of a saison filled with yeast, coriander, fruit, and pear. Tastes of sweet fruit, yeast, malt, coriander and finishes dry with yeast and acid. It’s ok but not my thing.

umich03jm (1589) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
C&C 750 ml bottle thanks to soonerchamps. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with medium sized bubbly head that fades slowly. Aromas are lemons, Belgian yeast, spicy Saaz hops, black pepper, light wine fruitiness and subtle brett/barnyard. Taste is sweet and spicy. Honey, black pepper, and Saaz hops dominate but there’s still a lot of lemons and barnyard in the finish. Very enjoyable saison.
