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.

Cloudy orange yellow pour some foamy head. Aroma of bretta, crackers, lemons, funk, chardonnay. Peppery yeah tastes like it was american oak aged. Light lemons and spicy flavors dominate as well as bretta. Bitter hop finish yet also some sweet residuals. Some juicy thickness to palate, but also dry, and slight creamy like oatmeal. Mid carb. Very balanced yet flavorful. Great beer.

Bottle. . Pours pale yellow with unfiltered suspended sediment and a wholly lasting white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma of Brett and Coriander. Flavor follows nose along with a bit of alcohol. Medium body, fizzy carbo at the start but to appreciate the brew it needs to sit and let some of the carbonation subside. Lots of alcohol in the finish.

slowrunner77 (7863) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 1, 2015
A funky and slightly hoppy saison. A touch prickly in the feel, with pronounced yeast and fruitiness as well. Good stuff.

Hazy golden color with a huge white head. Aroma is peppery and a little yeasty. Flavor is a little spicy with strong pepper and coriander. Just a little tart in the finish, minimal influence from the Brett.

ClubGonzo (4898) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo. Pours a clear golden body with a large, short-lasting white head. Nose is sweet saison esters, mild barnyard notes, white sugar, red fruits, citric peel, muscat grapes and hints of straw, pale malts and hay. Taste is red fruits, bretty stable notes, whites sugar, citric peel, pale malts, straw and hints of muscat grapes, wine gum and yellow apples. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice and complex saison with loads of both sweet estery tones and balancing citric-farmhouse funk to balance it. Well done Prairie.

Minha primeira Prairie. Que cerveja diferente. Carbonatação alta. Forma muita espuma de curta duração. É ácida. Durante o gole se percebe um azedo até agradável e uma certa picância já que essa breja leva pimenta na receita. Teor alcóolico bem inserido. Cerveja muito diferente do convencional.

500 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, gradually diminishing fluffy white head, over an effervescent, hazy, yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is moderately spicy with clove, allspice notes, light citrus with lemon, orange, then pineapple, light cereal malts, big barnyard with light urine, slight herbal hops......taste is slightly sweet, with lemon, orange tones, pineapple notes, mild spices, light malts, light barnyard funk, finishing moderately hop bitter, with light black pepper.....mouth feel, light of medium body, slight alcohol, high carbonation. The yeast characteristics are ever so slightly off style, suggesting a need to change at least one of the three yeasts. That written, this is a quite enjoyable example of this broad style. BJCP 9/3/15/5/7
