Notes/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.

Very cloudy pale yellow in color. Forms a large fluffy white head. Looks like lemon meringue pie in a glass. Good retention. Moderate lacing. Powerful aroma full of tart lemony citrus, pineapple, and lemon curd. Taste is similar. Strong lemony component, though the sweetness is toned down while the peppery spice is kicked up. The brett comes off fairly aggressively. Body is on the lighter side of medium with a strong, almost acidic, tartness which I find to be far too aggressive for the style. Still, a very good example of a brett-forward beer.

500 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with an inch and a half white head. Both the head retention and lacing are good. The brew smells like yeast, hay, citrus (mostly lemon), pear, bready malt, and peppery spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some bubblegum, minerals, white grapes, and some brett. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and it's well carbonated. It's a good, lightly tart saison. Certainly worth trying if you've never had it before, it's a good brew.
