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.

Reviewing a little late.
C&C bottled poured into tulip.

A-the beer pours a straw color but pretty hazy.

S-woah, this beer smells awesome. Funk, wet hay. Bret. More funk. Spice. the bret comes thru much more than the first time around(when it first hit shelves)

T-real light and dry with a great bret flavor. Spicy pepperness(from the yeast?) Very nice and refreshing. Very drinkable, dangerously so.

M- light and maybe a little grassy. Easy drinking while being pretty complex as well.

O-I really like this beer. Have had it a few times and each time the bret seems to have come forward more. Defiantly worth trading for and picking up(if its in your market)

Props to jtmiller03 for sending this, much appreciated.

A-Hazy straw color with a big foamy head that settles to a thick skim, nice lacing.

S-Brett, horse blanket and some herbal grassy notes. Really impressive

T-Crisp brett straight away opening into slightly sweet honey and cereal grain. Spicy white pepper and clove with a clean dry finish. Absolutely delicious and bordering on perfection, hits all the notes of what I like in a saison. Wow

M-gassy and effervescent enough to wash away cleanly. really nice

O- flat out great Saison with Brett. I really wish I could get this on a weekly basis, it holds it's own with all of the Hill Farmstead saisons I've tried. I hope that production can keep up with what I assume will be an insane growing demand. I'd hate for the few bottles I have to be the last.

Maybe it's due to living in a wasteland for craft beers, or maybe I'm really lucky to have this in my state, but this is one of the best saisons I've had. The bottle itself is just fun to look at with the great hand drawn artwork, corked and caged. Poured into a Duvel tulip with a thick white head. Smells of citrus, mostly orange, and lemon to me with some pepper. The Brett funk comes through as well. Smells amazing. The taste is a light body with moderate carb. Spice, citrus, and the Brett, much like it smelled. This beer was a definite "wow" for me in local beers, I hope Chase has raised the bar for Oklahoma brewers. I'm holding back a few bottles to see how these mature, can't wait to pop one open in the hot Oklahoma summer!
