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.

stoutnick (841) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Cloudy pale. Aroma is tangy yeast, very mild spice, but still some brightness on the nose - lemony. Taste is juicy! Very nice mild spice, mild tang, very drinkable and sessional for a big saison. Perhaps a little too sweet on the finish (lingers), but not much citrus on the flavour which works well. Overall, a delicious saison here.

Bottle from Thirsty Dawg in Houlton, MA. Nice summer saison that seemed to have all the right qualities. Not sure what those are yet but tastes like what I think a saison should taste like. Golden color, good carbonation, peppery and refreshing. However, I think the bottle might have been a bit old when I bought it. There was a hint of sourness that I'm not sure was supposed to be there. That and there was enough left over yeast in the bottom that I think I could have probably started my next batch of home brew with it.

The beer is extremely hazy and straw yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma offers lemons, hay, grass, floral hops, citrus. Lots of citrus in the flavor. Delicious. Mild funk with orange rind, floral hops, and a slight herbal note. Medium bodied, complex; and easy drinking. Really tasty.

Gription79 (2885) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Poured with a lot of head from a 750ml bottle. The aroma was sulfury white wine as I poured. After the head settled I got notes of peppery, apple/pear skins, funky Brett yeasty, earthy. The flavor is bready, dusty, spicy phenolics, slightly citrus note on the back end. Solid saison, rustic and funky.
