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 (1556) - 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.

CaptainTilven (109) - Nancy, FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
Temperature from 12,6°C to 14,3°C. Another mischievous one that rushes away when opening the bottle - thanks the bottle is not too short... Opaque yellow body (suspended yeast cells) headed by a hyper aery and crystalline foam that quickly collapses to a kind of a meringue. Aroma of lemon, flowers, fresh grass; that’s fresh without being unsignificant; that’s a bit rough : sour apple, apricot, pineapple (not sweet). Taste is the same, and more than that : it’s swarming with sensations, it’s crackling like funky champagne. A lot of fineness and character while being pleasant and quite easy to enjoy. Perfect with varied kinds of goat cheese and deli. I absolutely have to taste it again, to increase knowledge about it, so amazing this beer is.

Pours a golden yellow with big fizzy head. Aromas of wine, yeast, & some funk. Smooth yeasty taste with a touch of the funk.

VDuquerroux (1028) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle, 1 pint 9 fl. oz. Home. A sparkling golden fizzy beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention. Herbs, vegetable, mushroom (not my thing...), alcohol, light pepper. Light to medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing ; warming. Full body, thin silky texture, good carbonation, warming dry finish, light bitter. Overall, average herbal vegetable strong ale.

davidezdonz (195) - , HONG KONG - MAR 1, 2016
A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 24114, meaning it was bottled on 29th August 2014. It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a cloudy golden colour with a 2 finger pillowy white head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Nice funky farmhouse aromas with some pineapple, sour apple, light honey, some citrus and pepper. Taste includes lemon juice, green apple, honey and pepper. Surprisingly a little on the sweet side. Dry, light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall, great colours and aromas although it was surprisingly on the sweet side for me.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - FEB 18, 2016
8.2%ABV. Saison. Poured out a dirty deep gold. 10ºSRM. Nose has aromas of aceto and unripe plum tartness. Mouthfeel is sudsy. Palate is surprisingly light. There is a brief sour which evaporates into a smoky sweet palate. Like a deeply roasted wheat malt or toasted wheat germ. Some hop bitterness. Clean sweet finish.

M_Sack (568) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Light straw, billowing white frothy head. Aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruit, sour Brett funk and hints of pepper. Bubblegum, pineapple, Brett and pepper flavours which are all dominated by alcohol. Perfect high carbonation and refreshing for a beer of such high ABV ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Rating #1607 - 16.04.2015 - On tap at Sugarbowl. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of brett, pineapple, pepper, citrus, soft fruits, esters, alcohol. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, medium alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Great "imperial" saison.

Ysok02 (729) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2016
Robe blonde trouble, mousse peu abondante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes fruitées, des agrumes, une pointe d’ananas et de houblon frais sur un fond de gingembre confit. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, élégante, tout en finesse, fine acidité et note d’agrumes en finale. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une saison. Un bière de plaisir et de soif.
