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.

ardeo (430) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle,1 pint 9 fl.oz. Aspect : blonde assez troublée et mousse à fines bulles. Nez : très "levure", fruits jaunes, herbeux, épicé. Bouche : fruitée-banane, épicée-coriandre-poivre, légèrement amère. Vive carbonatation. Pas mal mais j’aime moyennement les saisons ... sauf les printemps sans précipitations.

I’ve had everything from super hoppy pale ales to super malty nut ales and porters, and many a saison in between. This is one of the worst things I have ever put in my my mouth. Maybe I got a bad one, who knows. I had to spit this out and pour the rest down the drain.

CloakedDagger (2508) - - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle 75 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with a tiny, white head. Very citrusy aroma combined with Brett, yeast and esters. Medium body, very estery and phenollic - and it’s not all very pleasant. I think this really shows that Saisons can get old and tired after a couple of years. No best of date. 130117

ALIBALI (2122) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2017
Jaaaa, der schwere Farmhousepanzer. Getreidig und verheft bis unter die Fußnägel. Ansonsten schwer in Leder und kratzig bis zum Ziel. Pepper & Pelz...was will ich mehr!? Saftaffin und chardonnaytrocken. Holla, not bad 😎. 0,5l Buddel von BEEEEERGIUM. 6-7€. Sale 😐.

NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2016 Draft at Bierstube. Cloudy golden yellow pour that started with an abundance of white froth. Thick lace. Juicy, fruity and herbal. Limes. Apricots. Dill. Celery hearts. Blonde biscuit malts. The Brett adds a bit of tang but not much funk. Sweetish but finishes mostly dry. Very easy drinking for the listed ABV.

Clareeses (106) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Slightly opaque and golden appearance. Faint citrus notes - very little aroma. Has yeasty, stone fruit (apricot) notes but finish is a little harsh and alcoholic. Overall a solid Saison.

Stine (1782) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Poured to a Struise tulip, the color is a beautiful, cloudy pale gold. The head continuously built long after the pour. The aroma is highly herbal, a zesty bouquet of white sage, lavender, soft mint, and cracked black pepper. Malt has its moments buried down low in honeycomb and possibly pancake batter later on. The prevalent sensation in the early flavor is that it’s too hot. The herbs are still everywhere, and folded in with caramelized pears, pineapple, and focaccia. It is all assuredly pleasant and cleanly constructed; the alcohol warmth is consistently too distracting for this to be truly great. The palate is lean and dry for the most part, if occasionally brushing up against the inevitable slickness that high alcohol brings.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 19, 2016
Alaranjada palha de média turbidez, espuma branca abundante de média persistência. Aroma intenso de fermento, cítrico alaranjado, seca, carambola. No paladar leve acidez e dulçor. Corpo leve e alta carbonatação. Final trás mais da laranja e carambola, suco de uva verde, inicia seca mas fica mais equilibrada com tempo de copo. Uma boa saison, mas ainda perde para as belgas tradicionais.

CaptainTilven (191) - Nancy, FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 24, 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. / Deuxième dégustation : température de 6°C à 11,6°C. Corps opaque jaune tirant sur le brun; mousse extraordinaire maîtrisée grâce à une température assez basse, formidable, crépitante comme un bain moussant. Arômes de foin, abricot, ananas; ça sent la ferme et ça sent très bon ! citron, mandarine douce, pomme acide. S’ajoutent en bouche la levure fraîche et l’alcool de poire. Acidité fine + douceur + légère amertume = tout cela donne un très joli équilibre. C’est exceptionnel, totalement euphorisant. Fabuleuse avec un bleu crémeux et corsé.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a golden yellow with big fizzy head. Aromas of wine, yeast, & some funk. Smooth yeasty taste with a touch of the funk.
