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.

3fourths (8015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
bottle-conditioned 750ml. hazy wheat colored body with a billowy lasting white head. crunchy grain husks and over-cooked bready malt notes with a wash of sulfuric yeast and sweat sock brett. it’s certainly a powerful smell, it’s not easy to miss the brett character or the hops, but it’s not in balance at all. yeasty chalk and coarse toasted grains and runaway tartness with a big, sloppy, chewy body. woody, nutty, sourish wheat, band aids and sweat socks. overblown brett character and it’s so bitter and astringent that I would guess it underwent an unfortunate oak treatment. an overdose of tropical fruit esters and hop acid.

Eructoblaster (3012) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a cloudy blond body with a huge white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy, herbal, and yeasty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, coriander, grainy, and citrusy notes. Once again, alcohol is barely noticeable. Ends with a very long, dry, sour finish. Very well done.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Strong horseblanket, lemon and barley malt aroma. Cloudy pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet lemon, malt, horseblanket and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Excellent - great Brett presence.

pinkzambia (1473) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, murky yellow gold with a gigantic fizzy head that eventually wore off. Mild spice and yeast aroma with wheat and grain as well. Refreshing flavor with mild flavor that is not annoying. Perhaps, my favorite Saison.

IndianaRed (2416) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle hazy light orange. minimal off white head. LIght spicy lemony aroma. Very mild Saison yeast flavors and a slight grassy bitterness trailer. Mellow and light

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a light hazy yellow, with a small white head that quickly fades into a disc on the surface. No appreciable lacing. Nose is faint citrus and yeast. Taste is citrus with a hint of pepper. Refreshing, but not one of Prairie’s best.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle: Huge, bright white foam and a tiny bit of cloudy lemon yellow on initial pour......wait, wait...wait.. Strong lemon, yeast aroma. Tart, lemon, white pepper...dry... Definitely a note of barnyard and dust. Very crisp and sharp.

kappldav123 (4924) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Light yellow in the glass, huge head. Mild fruity aroma with salty hints. Starts mild, malty, fruity and a bit moldy, not too intense. Finish more spicy. Quite drinkable. Not bad!
