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.

A - Pours a hazy golden yellow with a hint of orange to it. Pours with a nice thick frothy head that retains for quite some time. After the majority has dissipated, about a quarter inch remains behind. Nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of orange peel, and pineapple. Bready, malty, saison yeast. Appealing.

T - Bready. Orange peel. Crisp. Deliciousness. Refreshing. Would be great on a hot day outside.

M - Moderate body. Mouthfeel is on the smooth side. Lighter carbonation than anticipated.

O - Overall this is delicious. I would recommend it to try it out and I would purchase it again if I saw it on the shelf.

The color is gorgeous, bright yellow, opaque.

The aroma is bright candy pineapple, orange peel, almost like a DIPA. A bready and yeasty saison note.

The flavor follows of those fruits in the front. A hint of sweetness, breadiness, and a stiff bitterness on the back of pepper and spicy herbal.

This beer is dry and has characteristics I like, but the back end is a bit too much.
