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.

Bit of a gusher. Big foamy head, decent retention and lacing. Super cloudy and hazy, lemon yellow brew.

Tart lemony aroma; straw, funk, hay.

Flavor matches: rustic, slightly funky, a little sweet, with a bit of citric acid. Everything is nice and balanced.

Feel is a little thin but sticky, highly carbonated, with a long finish.

Another delicious saison. Try it.

Poured from the bottle into a super large tulip. And, man oh man, what a load of head! Five fingers at least. I wasn't even pouring it all that aggressively either. Body (once I could see it) is a light, hazy orange.

Smell seems pretty typical for a farmhouse ale. Some funk, some lemon.

Again, pretty standard as far as taste. Solid, but it's not making me shed tears of pure joy.

Overall, this ain't too shabby. But for the price I paid (nearly $10), it's not worth buying again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Hazy medium yellow, with a huge white fluffy head on even a gentle pour. Lively visible carbonation.

S: Musty and restrained funk, with light cracker malts, thick yeast, and light citrus undertones. Nice saison aroma for sure.

T: Follows the nose - musty barnyard, light malts, farm yeastiness, and some citrus with a light black pepper. Some hop bitterness shows up near the end.

M: Light bubbly body, and alcohol presence well-hidden.

O: This was a nicely executed saison. Maybe there's not much to make it stand out from its peers, but it does very little wrong. This particular bottle was a touch over-carbonated.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A- gushes out of the bottle with a huge force. Not surprisingly the pour into a Tripel Karmeliet tulip is cloudy, with a huge white head of loose bubbles that fades very slowly leaving thick laces. Color is a cloudy light gold.

S- funk, hay, noble hops, pear, banana, cardamom, mineral water, maybe a touch of alcohol. Smells like a funky farmhouse ale with lots of complex characteristics.

T/M- Dry and highly carbonated. Starts with a soft lemony bite that fades to bready and hay like malt mixed with a farmyard funk that displays decaying earth, before a fairly bitter and dry swallow. Taste seems to lack some of the complexity of the nose with the spice and fruit largely displaced by the earthy funk, the sweet malt and the intense combination of carbonation and bitterness.

O- I'm going back and forth on this one. While it delivers what it promises (farmyard) the extreme carbonation and moderate bitterness are a bit off putting and as it warms the alcohol, rather than fruit or spice, is the most increasingly noticeable attribute.
