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.

Golden orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Smell is slightly tart fruit, funk, barnyard, citrus, vanilla, caramel. Taste is hoppy citrus with a very light fruit tart, some vanilla caramel sweetness. Smooth easy to drink with good flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 mL bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass shared with a buddy. Milky bright golden with a thin, frail white head. Quite pungent, funky citrus, green bitter herbs, peppery, zingy, spicy, quite funky, light wheat notes, certainly has character. Medium body, restrained, creamy effervescence. More friendly and less funky than the nose, esters, toasted wheat, still fairly funky though with bitter green herbs; dry with gentle bitterness and a really friendly malty, ester finish. Nice stuff.

When I first poured this into my glass it produced a full glass of a foamy head. In about 5 minutes I had some liquid. The appearance is a hazy light golden yellow with a ton of head. Aroma is kind of sour nothing youd want to sniff a lot of. Sort of like dirty socks. Taste is well much better than the foam and smell. It is bitter yet slightly sweet. I pick up some pepper and citrus a little pineapple. Not really sour but acidic like. Palate is kind of thin and with all the head not overly carbonated. Overall it is worth trying if you never had it but not one Id got out of my way to buy.

Bought bottle from Crown Liquors in Indy and poured into a snifter a cloudy lemon with a massive white head that almost overflowed the glass then settled into a nice pillow top. Aroma is citrusy funk burlap bready. Flavor is crazy! Got sweetness right off the top which amazingly worked with this Saison. A bit spicy some barnyard definitely got the pineapple. Carbonated highly and well balanced with the flavors on the palate. More sweet than I am used to with this style. This was my first Prairie Brew of which I have been hearing great things and was not disappointed. The hype is right on. This saison is outstanding! LOVE this brew & will easily seek out another bottle.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with a massive fluffy white head wild aggressive carbonation forced the cork as soon as the cage came off, taste has citrus and spice and some tangerine, elements of funk, some malt action.

Pours hazy yellow with tall, frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, honey, light bretta and touches of fruit. Taste is slightly funky sour with balancing sweetness and citrus notes. Finish is smooth and peppery. Fresh, light and crisp body with average carbonation.

sethdude (702) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours hazy gold with a pillowy head. Aroma is amazing- dirt, hay, burlap, band-aid, hemp rope, cellar/basement funk, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is similarly impressive- big fruity apricot, band-aid, funk, soil, some woodiness, black pepper, grass, wood sorrel, and lemon zest. Tongue-drying finish. Staggeringly good; Im sohappy and proud that it was made here in the Midwest. World-class.
