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.

Keg at Mikkeller, Stockholm. Cloudy golden, small head. Funky nose with cobwebs, sugar and salted orange peels. Sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Sugar and salt, notes of metal. Shallow in malt character. Slightly metallic finish. Messy and harsh.

Une des bières phares de cette brasserie se spécialisant dans les trucs "funky", la Prairie Ale est extrêmement embrouillée voire laiteuse. La mousse est à priori folle, mais elle se dissipe toutefois assez rapidement. L’aspect sauvage est bien présent au nez et il est soutenu par des arômes de fruits jaunes et exotiques comme la mangue par exemple, en plus d’une pointe poivrée. Tout ça se conjugue à merveille en bouche, l’aspect épicé ressortant un peu plus. Les bretts accomplissent un boulot exemplaire, conférant un goût sauvagement fruité. Une bonne carbonatation rend cette bière encore plus facile à boire, malgré son astringence surprenante. Superbe.

GothGargoyle (1589) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Bit of a gusher on opening, cloudy yellow with a massive white foamy head. Aroma is lemon peel, funk, straw, spice. Medium bodied, spicy on the palate, light bitterness on the finish. Taste is green peppercorns, lemon, pear, orange peel, saison spice. Damn tasty

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Serving: Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a slim white head. Light yeast and floral notes with a little bit of hay. Very clean and bright on the tongue. A touch of lemon pith, pepper, and a slight frutiness. Short, clean finish that is dry. Definitely one of the better examples I’ve had in awhile. Surprised at the high ABV on this.

Bottle shared by Carsten
Yellow, totally hazed, white head. Smell of funk, light fruits, hints of white grapes and grapefruit. Light sweet, quite dry, very intence fruits, funky brett and must. Moderate bitter finish. Very fascinating saison. An excellent crafted beer

Bottle from Hazel’s Beverage World. pours golden with a thin white head. has some solid funk on the nose with a bit of tartness. Has some nice citrus funkiness on the nose. finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.

Stine (1645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Tap. Transparent soft yellow pour; very clean appearance. The aroma is herbal, and aerated; minerals, leafy mint and further herbs together with sugar for a fluoride like effect. Softened, yeast oriented flavor offering peppercorns, white grape and yellow apple, and the high tang of pineapple. It is pleasant and organized, but feels a little stripped; the body is crisp and shallow. A bottled version might be more representative of this beer’s possibilities.

Quevillon (2609) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
500 ml purchase at the Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury (VT) on August 19, 2014. Golden cream, medium head. Dry yeast aroma, soft herbs and field berry notes. Taste of citrus herbs, very dry yeast, the aftertaste is equally dry without any scenes of alcohol. Dry and funky, I like it!

Niksko (441) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours a light slightly hazy golden with some sudsy white head. Nose is lemony sour, slightly tropical, tiny bit of funk, some bread dough. Flavor is tropical juice, lemon zest, a little bit of funk, slight banana, a little clove. Finish is dry, slightly sour and grainy. Alcohol is hidden amazingly, and body is medium to heavy with perfect carbonation for the style. Really balanced and tasty.
