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.

Bottle. INCOMING!!! Took the cage off, looked down, and watched the cork blow itself across my kitchen. It gushed for a good ten minutes after. This is not good. That said...nose is sweet with some brett and phenolic notes, as well as spicy wine notes. Pours a hazy gold with a huge head. Flavor is typical saison -- some peppery and tropical fruit going on. Finish is a little saccharine. Its all right, but its not worth the explosion.

Scopey (14012) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to Matteo at the Pre-Zwanze. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, apricot, peach yoghurt, funky, earth and wood. The taste is fresh orange, nectarine, apricot, sherbet, wood, creamy, hay and floral with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and high, prickly carbonation. Tasty and well-balanced.

Beersiveknown (5205) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 20, 2013
750ml bottle from ales by mail
Hazy pale blonde, sharp citrus and plenty of poop. Brett front and centre, dry, bretty, touch of sauvignon grapes, tart. As brett subsides biscuit malt and citrus hops appear. Brett a tad too boisterous for me

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light Brett notes, a little pale malts and wheat, some light fruits, and a nice bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything for a saison. Average texture. A really good saison.
