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.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

8.2% per the bottle label.
Pours a cloudy hazy viscous golden, with a towering white fluffy head.
Smells of wheat, yeasty and tangy bread, malts. Earthy.
Big peppery saison here, with a thick wet Belgian bread to soak up any of the funky barn taste that tries poking through. Interesting how the pepper dominates such a syrupy, highly carbonated brew. I'm not picking up the pineapple as the description says is present. I wonder if this is because the bottle indicates an 8.2% beer, whereas previous bottles were apparently 7% (according to BA at least). I like it, and I normally like spicing like pepper but it seems way heavily present in the taste..yet the sugar balances it out somehow. Did i miss a different batch, one with more complexity... that being the lighter version? i dont know, but this Prairie Ale was still nice to try. In the end this was more like a hefty pilsner to me rather than a saison. Their phenomenal "Hop" version of this is what led me to pick this up. This is still worth a try.
