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.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft pour at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Fl. Snifter. Pours a hazy yellow with a one finger white head. Head gone in about 120 seconds but solid lacing. Aroma of brett, farm funk, citrus, white pepper and bread. The taste is similar with the brett and wine yeasts playing well with the pilsner malts. Well balanced, slightly dry finish. Not sour, but that good farmhouse saison. Light body, solid carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. I could drink this all day.

Murrow (97) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy straw to pale gold. Copious head. Sharp, somewhat stinging aroma. Grapefruit. Flavor opens bright, with citrus flavors, picking up some malt backbone as it develops. Finish is wild yeast. Dry finish. Heavy carb. Nice, smooth mouthfeel. A very enjoyable ale.

Palme (4396) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2017
0.5l bottle. Dont leave it on the table, cause it most definitely wants out this. A bright white almost foamy fluffy head over a cloudy lemonade yellow colored body. It has lots of fresh citrus yeasty tones on the nose. Sharp white wine, tart yellow berries and something mildly salt. Like it, even if its perhaps a tad too sharp. Overcarbonated Id say on the bubbles, aggressive and a little unpleasant on the palate really. Tastes good, but suffers from the hard bubbles. No doubt that it has a strong champagne/white wine touch over it. Mineralish, green grapes. Mild green melon, woody tart and really dry. Near bone dry. Like it, but I just wish the bubbles was toned down a bit. 17.07.2015

ciocanelu (1812) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 6, 2017
Almost clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt, yeast notes, some meadow flowers and apricot notes. Taste starts slightly malty and sweet with floral notes, slightly astringent on the finish. Lingers with floral yeast notes. Medium body and carbonation. Overall its decent but slightly too sweet and yeasty for my taste.

Ive 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 (2211) - - 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 its 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 (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2017
Jaaaa, der schwere Farmhousepanzer. Getreidig und verheft bis unter die Fungel. 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 (2942) - 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 (56) - 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 (1771) - 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 its 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.
