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.

nealblind (1007) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2014
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 from Market Street Frisco. Pours a hazy golden color with medium white head. The aromas are citrus, floral, bubblegum. The mouthfeel is fizzy and dry with a light body. Cheers!

jhgrantjr (449) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Poured from a bottle, big white head, wonderful gold color. Aroma of fruits, spices, that funky saison smell. As with other saisons of this caliber, there is good carbonation. Taste is tarty, sour, and very dry. A really good saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (3287) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Fra fat på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: dette ser ut til å bli kvelden for de gode fatøl! Her finner jeg en interessant mix av pepper og citrus i både aroma og smak (kanskje et godt øl til fårikål?). Fint karbonert. Lang ettersmak, en virkelig god og pepperfrisk øl med pikant syre.

gunnar (6199) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Tap at Cardinal. Pours hazy straw colored with a big creamy white head. Aroma is yeasty with a nice Brett presence, some pepper as well. Taste is moderate dry, lots of yeasty notes, almost too much and overwhelming, but interesting enough to be enjoyable.
