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.

Tap; flavor and aroma were not surprisingly dominated by yeast and brett elements. At times too much of a bandaid like flavor emerged. Some tart elements.

Clear golden color and heavy foam. Spicy peppery smell. The taste is sweet, boozy, spicy dry and has a lot of cookie. Dry aftertaste.

anstei (445) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Tap at Erzbierschof. Not your typical saison, but still very nice. Still residues of saison yeast noticeable, quite sweet flavour but dry palate.

Hazy orange-yellow color with big white head. Hay, funk, spices, fresh bretts. Taste is fresh, tart, doughy and with a boozy finish. Nice perlage. A nice heavy Saison!

Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Spicy smell with hay, fruits and some light bread. Similar taste, herbal hoppy with some grass. Refreshing. High carbonation.

Fat bishops örebro. Grumlig gul vätska. Jästig och fruktig doft. Härligt stallig smak. Äpplekart, hö och blommor. Värmande alkoholtouch med bra kolsyra

jrodooo5 (1299) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Stunning pale golden pour w/ a retaining white head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains a generous amount of spices. The taste is very Belgian esque. It’s very spicy w/ a little bit of a bite in the middle. It’s rather soft on the palate & finishes relatively clean making it dangerously drinkable at over 8%. Quite possibly the best saison I’ve come across!

BeerBunker (954) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of malt, spice, funk, and yeast. Taste is of funk, soap, and yeast. Has a nice spice taste to it. Has a bready malt backbone. Mouthfeel is very soapy, almost fizzy. Body is very carbonated, and goes down easy. Aside from being very soapy, it’s a very good beer.

ej (1019) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle. Slow gusher. Pours a near clear pale yellow with a large frothy, medium to fully lasting head. Nice aroma with a light floral touch along with citrus and funky barnyard yeast. The brett character is very nice! Taste is nice also, balanced with a light sweet note at first into a pungent and lightly spiced / peppery finish. Semi-dry and lasting peppery finish. This is a fine ale indeed. Drinkable yet potent with alcohol, and loads of good flavors! Medium bodied with close to high levels of co2.
