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 bit of a gusher, but otherwise very tasty.

Pours a light golden color with a white head. Aroma of farmhouse, damp straw and lemon. The taste is wheat focused, lightly tart, some lemon. Bitter hops and earthy yeast flavor cut tartness. As a multi yeast beer it gets a little too complex to the point where the flavors aren't agreeable. Good beer, and quality example of the style, but falls short of the truly great.

Poured into tulip.

A - Beautiful hazy yellow-gold. Pours a thick foamy head. Sticky lacing. Nice carbonation.

S - Brett and spices. Very nice aroma. Funky. Hint of citrus. Smells like champagne, interestingly.

T - Classic farmhouse saison. Nice spices. Good carbonation. Brett very apparent. Not overpowering. Crisp and spicy but nice fresh finish.

O - A very nice saison. Color and aroma very nice with a classic farmhouse/belgian/saison taste. Funky spices without overpowering.

Everything i love about a farmhouse saison here. delicate spices, light pear like fruit flavors, nice carbonation. the brett is what makes this one instantly a favorite. great brett in the smell and taste, not overpowering but enough to give it that that funky, musty flavor. loved this beer..

Delicious and tasty . . . same thing I know. Sitting on a couple Prairie offerings at the moment and this being the first I've tried. Makes me all the more anxious to try more. Solid presentation of the style. Slightly funky and easy drinking.
